1)'push through, you're doing great, you're doing so good, that was a great move, push, push through, okay box now' I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT IT ITS BEAUTIFUL. in my personal hc every driver has their own radio guy who's THE ONLY PERSON allowed to talk to them during a race for concentration purposes and there's a Special Bond™ there that no one can understand. Okay ngl I Get the Cyril crush and even the Toto crush for some reason. Christian seems like a lowkey dick but also like a Good Leader/
2)/Father Figure for the very young drivers on his team. Also my other fave is Charles but not in a crush way but more in a way that’s simultaneously ‘Go get em boy!!!’ and 'I want to protect you from all the evil in the world ever you’ve been through enough’ which is also vaguely the stance I adopted towards Pierre, esp when that horrible accident happened. I’m also endlessly rooting for Daniel bc he’s a sweetheart although he done goofed with going to Renault imo. Also Williams lady!!! Yes!!
I love your HC so much, I could actually see it? Like, that voice is integral to them being able to concentrate and win–someone better pay cash money for it!! Oh and on one hand, I totally get what you mean about Christian being a mentor for the very young, but that was a total asshole move about Danny Ricardo (fucking up his name because you “don’t remember it”? c’mon now)…speaking of asshole moves, the Piers Morgan-esque reporter scum trying to bring up the dirt on Alex’s mum in an interview, and the Red Bull press guy NOT HAVING IT (”I’ve got a job to do” “Do it another day then”…BURN). I’m way less into the drivers, but I love the cinematic poetry we got this season, like Kevin cosplaying a bearded Jack Lowden in a Dunkirk boat role while “relaxing.” I am DEFINITELY rooting for Claire Williams, god, she cannot catch a break, but also, the choice of that guy to run the project, MISTAKE CITY. Bad hire.
