Speaking after the announcement Kevin had been dropped from the Mclaren team at the age of just 23, the Dane’s father said, “I’m incredibly proud: at his age I was still only dreaming of being washed up.”
“Now he can actually go and live in a one-roomed apartment in Texas because the only thing he can do just to survive is drive US prototypes around crumbling circuits in the depths of redneck America.”
Well done son; now you can come and be an estate agent, like me
Kevin’s F1 career got off to a stunning start with a podium in his first ever Grand Prix but it was pretty much all immediately downhill from there, his father proudly pointed out.
“I was on the verge of getting Jackie Stewart in to try and wreck his confidence like he did with me but luckily Kevin got his head down and made sure he was out of a job before he’s even into his mid-20s.”
“Thanks Ron: I owe you one,” he said, stifling a sob.
