Do you think it's at all stupid that we're asking questions over the internet when you're only in the room opposite me?

It's a bit unusual, but remember I'm not at home half the time :P .

Probably The Crystal Maze. It's a real shame it's not on anymore :( .

What would you make of Jeremy Clarkson becoming President of the FIA?

I really don't know. He'd be a lot better than Max Mosley - anyone would. I expect he'd go a bit too crazy with some of his ideas, though: he'd penalise other drivers at random, although that's quite close to what happens anyway :P .

Alternatively, what would your reaction be to find Max Moseley hosting Top Gear instead of Clarkson?

I'd probably stop watching. He'd be nowhere near as funny :( .

Even with James May and The Stig still there ... ?

Do you have a favourite F1 team?

Yes; The Stig never speaks, and James May can be funny, but I'm not sure he'd work as well as the 'main' host as Clarkson does. Then again, the programmes outside Top Gear that he hosts on his own are good.

I don't know. I used to like McLaren, and I sort of still do...but then they went and lied to the race stewards, which put me off them a bit :( . Since then, my favourite team has been Brawn GP, which will become Mercedes GP next year, will most likely have Michael Schumacher coming out of retirement to drive for them...in a bizarre twist of fate, I might end up SUPPORTING him :O !!!!

If you were FIA President, what changes would you make?

I actually wrota about this previously. Here's what I came up with:

Quote:
 
1) The World Championship is to consist of:

6 track races
3 street races
3 offroad races
3 mountain races
3 swamp races
2 winter races
1 volcanic race
1 surprise

2) Drivers and/or teams may use any road-practical car. To ensure that this rule is adhered to, a speed bump will be placed across the start line of every race.

3) All technical information is considered to be in the public domain, and free for use by other teams.

4) Unrestricted V10 and V12 engines, high wings, ground effects, 'fan cars', 6-wheelers, turbochargers, 27-decker diffusers and mass dampers are all legal.

5) If you get impeded in qualifying, tough. We call it "racing", because we like that sort of thing.

6) After the race ends, any driver/team may buy the winning car for £250,000, or any other car for £100,000. The owner of the car is disqualified if he/she refuses to part with it.

7) Drivers are allowed as many luxuries as they want in their cars, including, but not limited to, food, drink, toothpaste, games of Twister and books about whatever they want. However, they must compete with all the extra weight.

8) All races are to be presided over by Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, all wearing togas.

9) Every race must end at 3pm GMT precisely. The stewards then have 5 hours in which to change any results, so that the revised results can be revealed to the world on that night's episode of Top Gear.

10) Any behaviour related to Nazism results in an immediate, permanent and unappealable ban from any activity related to Formula 1.

Wow - it looks as though you're all set for your career :P .

What are you most looking forward to on Christmas Day, apart from opening your presents?

Why do they call it 'Boxing Day' when there are no boxing matches taking place :P ?

Probably for the same reason that people don't all start travelling towards the east on Easter Sunday.

Do you take pride in the fact "Christmas" has the name "Chris" in it :P ?

Not really. I used to when I was very young, but now I realise that it's just a coincidence :P .

How does it feel to share a birthday with, among others, Margaret Thatcher, Paul Simon (of Simon & Garfunkel fame), Sacha Baron Cohen, and current Heavyweight World Champion David Haye?

I'm indifferent towards most of them, but it's unfortunate that I should share a birthday with the first one :( .
