As everyone knows, Formula One is one of the most challenging sports in the world.
The number one focus for all of the teams and all of the drivers is to win every race.
The sports is filled with politics, and the tension is always high. Yet it is impossible to keep up that stuffy attitude all the time.
At the 2009 Monaco Grand Prix, Jenson Button created a lighter moment when he parked in the pit lane after winning the race, instead of parking at the podium.
He then ran down the pit straight, much to the joy of commentators and fans everywhere, as seen in this video.
Now here are some of the lighter moments in Formula One Racing.
During the 2008 Turkish Grand Prix, the Toyota team came onto the radio to Trulli and said, "Jarno, you are P10 now. Couthard in front of you three seconds and Rosberg another second in front. Try to catch that group."
Trulli responds saying, "Don't worry, I'm pushing like a hell!!!"
During the Monaco weekend in 2006, Red Bull Racing had the new Superman movie on their car as a sponsor.
When David Couthard finished third and got Red Bull's first podium, he stood in place with a red cape blowing in the wind.
Then Red Bull team manager Christian Horner jumped into the harbour nearly naked, except for the red cape.
During the years that Michael Schumacher was winning all the time, 2DTV created several cartoons making fun of Formula One and Schumacher along with his competitors.
Here are a few examples:
Its always great to see grand prix winners get their first win, as they normally show more emotion than any other win that may have in their career.
Some examples include the joy in Sebastian Vettel's face after the Italian Grand Prix, Felipe Massa's joy in Turkey in 2006, or Rubens Barrichello finally breaking though to win in the German GP in 2000.
Non-F1 fans talking about F1 is usually very funny to watch.
For example, in Turkey 2009, when David Couthard asked supermodel Naomi Campbell who she was cheering for, she said, "England."
Couthard then went to ask if that meant Jenson Button, and she added, "No, just England."
Makes it seem like she was at a soccer (football) game or something.
Another non-fan who is fun to watch is Richard Hammond from BBC's Top Gear. Here's a clip of him if he was an F1 commentator:
Along with him trying and failing to drive an F1 car:
In Formula One, the press conferences are the best place for the drivers and the media to interact with each other.
Yet it is impossible for them to hold back their emotions all the time.
For example, Massa acting smart at Hungary in 2008:
Also the water fight between Eddie Irvine and Mika Hakkinen in 1999:
Also this other great one from the Austrian Grand Prix in 2004, where comedians played a joke on Juan Pablo Montoya:
One of the best F1 commentators of all time...Murray Walker.
He was, however, known for often getting it wrong, but he was very funny about it, so here's a collection of Murrayisms:
Kimi had been known as the Ice Man, never showing any emotion when he's on camera, but even he can't hold it all the time.
First at Monaco in 2006, he blew up halfway through the race while running in second.
The next time we saw the fin, he had jumped onto his yacht and was tanning in the sun, not back in the garage.
Later that year, while he was still driving for McLaren, Martin Brundle asked him if he minded missing the presentation to Michael Schumacher.
Kimi replied, "I was having a sh*t."
Then of course, the Fin falling off his boat in the offseason drunk as a skunk:
Every remembers the good old clip of Montoya calling the cameraman an effing idiot while crying like a baby:
Then David Couthard's impression of that four-and-a-half years later:
Couthard makes the list for the fourth time, showing that he has one of the best personalities in the sport and is always willing to bring a light moment to the forefront.
Couthard has had so many quotes in the past year, and it has gotten to the point that when he was doing the grid walk with Martin Brundle in Turkey, Button even had to say, "Man, I can't take you seriously when you have a microphone."
