Very dull and robotic. I also find he contradicts himself frequently.

This video is one of his best, his opinions don't differ too much from my own. I particularly share his views with tyres. I've used race scrubs on the road and they definitely grip more but aren't as fun (or any quicker) than a normal sport tyre. (They aren't any quicker because you have to be a moron to go quicker than on sport tyres).

You sound just lie my friend Humphrey!

Euro TD goes like this:
1: Where's the pub? I want a pint
2: "Humphrey we're on the plane there is no Pub"
3: Checking into our rooms - which way's the bar?
4: "Humphrey, take your suitcase to the room first and put your trousers back on"
5: Arrive at breakfast - I've found 3 highly recommended strip clubs and brothels for this evening.
6: "Humphrey we have our first day on circuit tomorrow"
7: Where's Humphrey?
8: Arrive at breakfast the next day, Humphrey walks in wearing just one shoe and one sock on the opposite foot still drinking from the night before.

I also forgot the puking in my helmet when just about to leave the paddock and go onto the track due to a monstrous hangover
