23 JAN. A man from Northern Ireland, who says he hasn’t watched an F1 race for years, has gone on record as saying it is boring.
Mr Edmund Irvine of Newtownards, County Down, said to the BBC, who called him on a slow news day: “I don’t watch F1 anymore because it bores me”.
Irvine, (F1 world titles zero) also said that Ferrari star, Sebastian Vettel (F1 world titles four), was a ‘massively overrated one-trick pony’ though he didn’t expand on what that one trick was. Presumably because he never watches him race.
We asked Vettel for a response to Irvine’s comments but he only responded with a quizzical ‘who?’.
