Ser­gio’s spiff­ing speech

Autosport (UK) - - LETTERS/PIT + PADDOCK -

One of the high­lights of the F1 sea­son for me has been Ser­gio Mar­chionne’s com­mand of ar­cane words that are lat­terly sel­dom-used in the English lan­guage. Al­ready he has de­scribed Kimi Raikko­nen as a “lag­gard” and re­cent Bernie Ec­cle­stone com­ments as “unadul­ter­ated hog­wash”.

What next? Well, I for one am look­ing for­ward to a “fright­ful hoo-hah” over the forth­com­ing en­gine reg­u­la­tions, and a con­tro­ver­sial stew­ards’ de­ci­sion be­ing de­rided as the work of “nin­com­poops”. WI Ball Twick­en­ham
