McLaren & Lewis Hamilton Merry Christmas VideoSat, 26 Dec 2009 00:00:00 -0800
A Merry Christmas form McLaren, Vodafone and Lewis Hamilton
Much past today – Boxing Day in the UK – and we’ll be hard pushed to run anything that has a real Christmas theme. Mind you, that won’t stop us if the story’s interesting or fun.
Yesterday we did the usual roundup of Car Christmas Cards, but we didn’t give you a Christmas video. So today we thought we’d put that right and give you a Christmas Greeting Video put together by McLarens’s sponsors Vodafone.
If you’ve spent an time in the last year watching coverage of Formula One, you probably already know that modern F1 cars are more like computers on wheels than cars. And you’ve probably seen the odd F1 car made to play a ‘Tune’ from it’s engine notes when hooked up to a laptop.
So Vodafone have done the ‘Seasons Greetings’ bit with Lewis Hamilton tapping away on a laptop to get his McLaren to play a festive ditty and shake its booty. All very entertaining.
We can only guess that the Vodafone boys and McLaren cooked this up before Jenson Button joined the team at Woking. We’d hate to think this was the first indication of a team preference.
