Formula One - Team Lego

Lego should have a Formula One team

Lego, already maker of many fine toy car kits, and the world's largest tyre maker* should field a Formula One team. The car wouldn't be the fastest on the grid, the aerodynamics of the car being affected by the necessarily blocky shape but their cars would look cool, fall apart in a satisfactory way when crashed, and generate millions from the toy marketing tie- ins.

* Absolutely true - Lego make more tyres than anyone else.

       Yeah little tires.

       presumably David Coultard would be their preferred driver, given his likeness to Legomen.

       The camera used for the photo-finish could be one of the available models of early digital camera circa 1994.

       [jtg] That is quite uncanny.

       I would pay good money just to see dedicated Lego racing.

       [jtg] Amazing - Coulthard has to be the only choice for Team Lego

       [DrCurry] Nice link - when I visited Legoland in Windsor a few years ago (with the little AWOLs of course), there was a life-size model made in standard Lego of one of their Technic car kits - all the beams and pieces were scaled up. Very neat.
