Video: Nelson Piquet talks trash

Submitted by on March 31, 2014

urlPiquet could drive like the wind, but he certainly wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. This video captures some of his most entertaining (and sometimes abrasive!) moments.

Perhaps the following comment sums up why he might have been a little bit misunderstood: “A journalist once asked me, being honest who was the best you or Senna? I said – well I’m alive!”

The three-time Formula 1 World Champion certainly isn’t afraid of speaking his mind, which is what makes this video so entertaining. After watching it we can’t help but wonder what F1 might be like today, if drivers were more candid.
