Hey, in your opinion, why are Japanese drivers so under marketed in F1? Is it the language barrier or something else?

Takiinoue292 karma

Very simple! Japanese mentality doesn't work for F1 driving.

The funniest driver in the paddock? Well......All drivers are very boring. I don't know Michael personally. I believe you know more than I do. I regret whole my F1 career.

Hi Taki, A few questions if you will allow,

1) Are you going to Goodwood Revival this year?

2) What is your favourite car/era/driver?

3) What do you do with your time now?

Thank You!

Takiinoue139 karma

I don't think they invite me to Good wood. But it's a dream. My favorite car is Ferrari and Kimi. My time is now very miserable indeed! But much better than 1995.

How was your first lap in a F1 Car? did you expected that kind of power/acceleration ect.?

Takiinoue191 karma

Well...I can't remember exactly. Let me think. I guess my first F1 driver was at Barcelona. The Simtek car was on their back to UK after the European GP at Jerez. They stopped and gave me around 30 laps. I couldn't use the tyre properly and carbon brake made me slow down too much. But I didn't use any fire extinguisher.

Are you praying for a Japanese driver to get a seat next year? Someone like Kobayashi or Kimiya Sato.

Takiinoue167 karma

Of course. I really praying for that. But whatever I pray, it means nothing. Money talks a lot in F1.
