Do you recall the 2011 German Grand Prix
, when Lewis Hamilton saw off Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber to win at the Nurburgring?
If so, you might recall that Alonso was told to park his car as a precaution by Ferrari after crossing the line and was forced to look for a way to get back to Parc Ferme in time for the podium.
You can guess who he ended up getting a lift with...
“Last Sunday, you may have seen me give Fernando a lift back to the pits,” Webber wrote in his BBC Sport
column at the time. “It did not strike me at the time but a lot of people said it turned back the clock to when Ayrton Senna hitched a ride on Nigel Mansell'scar after Nige had won the 1991 British Grand Prix.
“I saw Fernando had stopped so I pulled up beside him and tapped on my side-pod to see if he wanted a lift. He gave me the thumbs up.
“I was pretty keen for him to get out of his car and hop on mine quickly as I was keeping an eye on the car's temperatures. We conducted all of this in sign language but there was no miscommunication!
“Once he was comfortable and had a good grip of the car, we made our way back to the pits. I heard that David Coulthard and Martin Brundle were a bit nervous on the BBC commentary that we might be breaking the rules but everyone took the gesture in the spirit it was intended.”
