TBH as a finn, I can say that James driving after the competition after the crash is one of the best examples of sisu in action. Boys and girls, always remember. If you want to win, employ a finn.

Mika will always be my favorite driver. Half of it is how amazing he drives, and the other half is how he has nothing to say.

To learn drifting start by cutting donuts then open it up. Learn on dirt not tar or your tyres won't last very long.

I love the Finns. They’re so special, Mika then Kimi. Great driving skills. I hope I get to see them someday

Considering James May himself said in a newspaper interview (Sunday Times if I remember correctly) that he reckons about only 5% of the footage that's made out to be the hosts is actually them I highly doubt any of those corners were actually James May driving. It takes hours and hours of practice to be able to flick a car out that well. Fortunately I'm actually into cars so I know this, unlike people who watch Top Gear.

The Flying Finn and Captain Slow in a merc driving and drifting! Fact: 100% of Finnish people who already has a driver's license stick with manual. If you can't drive a manual on your driving tests, it's a flop. I like you Mika!

I once saw a video of a Finn shouting at a bear until it got scared and ran away. They truly have the blood of Vikings in them.

"Anywhere else I would have been brilliant..." -James May Why do you think he is called Captain Slow??

You get the feeling that Mika really likes James and enjoyed this bit. I've seen him smile on Camera more in this segment than I did in all my years of watching him in F1.

It's pathetic the need for oneupmanship of the English.

Personally trained by Jackie Stewart and Mika Hakkinen. He's probably a better driver than jezza and hamster in terms of proper technique and smoothness.

Häkkinen is the only guy you should listen for advice about motor racing. Especialy in circuit racing. The fastest single lap driver in the world ever.

Mika seems like an absolute legend, seems really modest and a bit of a laugh, as he kept on pulling faces to the camera.

Rodrigo Riso he might not be the best racer but certainly not the best cheater. As there are plenty of cheaters...

Suomi maailman paras ralli maa ja jääkiekko maa hyvä Mika. Leijonat ja vormulaat ja vähän kaljaa ja grillimakkaraa niin se on se homma!

I absolutely love this man. Häkkinen is so top notch! Btw miss The master, Mr schumacher. Only man who was equal or even bettern than Hakkinen. Lot of respect to that man also.

These 3 guys have the best job on the planet. The only downside is that Hammond had 2 close calls already. Hopefully, he will not crash anymore.
