Commentators curse


Where a commentator emphasises how well a driver is driving or predicting that they will win the race, only to have them crash or retire shortly after the comment is made…

Damon Hill is in fifth position! Damon Hill in the Arrows Yamaha is higher than he has ever been this season, a terrific performance, whatever reason. Some of it of course will be due to the fact that people have been in for tyres and he hasn’t. Villeneuve leads, Alesi is in second position… and Hill stops! Ohh… as I say it. That is six races and six failures for Damon Hill. And even his patience and tolerance must be severely tested. – Murray Walker, 1997 Spanish Grand Prix
