The Grand Tour - New test driver

Post

So we've seen "The American" has been dropped and TGT have also dropped a short video of a potential new driver in Mark Webber. Is this just a tease or maybe the final choice?

Any other ex-racing drivers you think could be in the frame if it isn't Webber?

I'm thinking Button could be in the picture as he's no longer under contract for McLaren now.

I'm glad they got rid of the American, he was annoying.

Button or Webber would work as they both are quick with personality.

The Video was very funny.

I liked the video with Webber, it would be cool if they hire an ex f1 driver

There's no way that was anything more than a joke.

I think that Webber this is the best choice for them. He is really great driver and simple person who can be serious and funny when it is necessary

Not sure if you have seen any of the episodes, but sadly Mark Webber didn't get picked. Instead Abbie Eaton, a British female driver got the job. It's a shame she got no proper introduction, or gets much credit/recognition.

Abbie Eaton as their driver is a brilliant move. That move alone has done a ton for women in racing than that lady (forgotten her name) for Renault or whatever that team was. Now if they could do more to give Abbie more media exposure that would be perfect. She seems proper quick around the Eboladrome!!!

Yeah I really like Mark. I bought his book and read it and it was quite interesting to see his point of view. He sent you a very genuine person and what you see is what you get. It also seen from the book that he harbored little bit of a sore spot with how he was treated. But it definitely gives it more of an insight into Sebastian's personality and how sheltered he was by Helmut Marko not so much Christian or even Dietrich. Looked like Dietrich was on Mark's side but ultimately Helmut was running everything and had more power.
