Jantelov? Hvad er det for nået?
Aksel Sandemoses gamle begreb er tydeligvis ikke gældende blandt Formel 1-kørerne – specielt ikke for Lewis Hamilton (og gud ske tak og lov for det).
Meeeen jeg kunne nu ikke lade være med at føle en lille knugen i maveregionen, da jeg for kort tid siden læste interviewet med den tidligere verdensmester på the Guardian’s hjemmeside.
I interviewet giver Hamilton udtryk for sin ambition om at åbne et museum – om ham selv. Hans trofæer, hans biler, hans hjelme. Hans blod, sved og tåre:
“I have been thinking to build a museum. It was my dad’s idea. It would be cool to have somewhere – in Stevenage or London, I don’t know – where we could have one of the cars from every year that I have driven and have the trophies up so that people can see them. There’s no point in having them all in your house where no one can see them.”
“Or I am going to have to build a house big enough because I have hundreds of trophies – I must have at least 500. I don’t need my suits, boots or gloves but I design my helmets and that is what people see and they have my blood, sweat and tears in them – and the memories.”
Derudover taler han også man sit (næsten) nyindkøbte privat fly og bulldoggen Roscoe:
“I emailed Bernie [Ecclestone] about my passes and then told him at the end I had a new member of my family. I was really nervous, but he said send a picture. I sent one of Roscoe wearing headphones. Bernie wasn’t too happy but that’s the one that will be on his pass. He is the coolest dog in the world, so funny. He has me in tears every day. I will take him to the European races.”
Jeg kan lige se for mig, at Roscoe sætter sig og lægger en dej i pitten…
Lad os slutte af med det mentale billede
