A song for Felipe Baby // Paying tribute to the Brazilian driver in his time of need

Published by Christine Blachford

Massa hasn't really had an easy time of it recently. Following on from his strong, but disappointing, finish to 2008, the Ferrari hasn't really been up to scratch. It's understandable that the drivers confidence might not be as sky high as you would expect but just lately, they seem to have been very downbeat about this whole racing business.

It's a surprise, particularly going into Bahrain, where Massa tends to do well, and the team have testing experience in the desert as well.

I can only imagine what Rob is saying to his young ward right now. In fact, I did imagine what he was saying, and I formed into a little ditty that you might care to listen to.

Here's my song to Massa, entitled Felipe Baby, that is intended to wish him good luck for the race tomorrow.

Hopefully that does the trick. If not, Luca di Montezemolo is in town, and that will surely make the Ferrari's fly up the order. We'll find out tomorrow!

Felipe Baby

    Love it !

    More to come, perhaps??

  • Fan-flipping-tastic. Well done!

  • Just awesome! I just can't get past the sheer "multi-talentedness" (if that can qualify as a real work) you've demonstrated! Great voice, and I agree - video needs to be next! Hope it does the trick and gets Massa/Ferrari back in the game!

  • Fantastic! Has it been drop.io'd? I want to download it!

  • Simply awesome! (Since when did Christine don the scarlet overalls?) And the KERS line was brilliant!

  • It is just lovely!Could you put the lyrics transcript here? I´d like to translate and post it at my blog...

    There's not enough ice cream for the both of you."

  • Wow, that really awesome! :)

  • That was fantastic Christine...you sound like a pro :)

  • Superb. Very sexy singing voice. What will we do without our favourite podcast once your singing career takes off?

  • Very profession effort, well done!

  • Haven't commented here yet, so I'll just say:

    That.Was.A-MA-ZING!!! Why aren't you on BBC yet? :P

  • Greetings from Hungary!

    I hope you'll get Grammy for this. :D

    Do you know this one btw?

    www.seiska.fi/kar…7/kimi+raikkonen/

  • Well I have become a fan and I hope it goes to number one lol you sound as sexy as you sing im sure that you will be a hit. Would it be funny if Massa invited you to the gp, I think he will be laughing at it. Its really good. Can you do a Lewis one now please!!!

    I have the first verse ;)

    Lewis baby, you know you should not lie again, its bad, you make yourself look silly.

    Lewis baby stop trying to lose all your points!!!

    Work in progress ;)

  • Can you do a Lewis one now please!!!

    I have the first verse

    I believe Mr Dennis is already working on a reposte, though it'll obviously be in Ron Speake :D

  • Can you do a Lewis one now please!!!

    Tell me lies tell me sweet little lies...

  • Would I lie to you?

  • Bravo.

  • Or for Jarno:

    "I can still hear you saying you would never break the train."

  • Think about it

    If it only sells a couple of thousand on iTunes...

    You have to do it

  • Think about it

    If it only sells a couple of thousand on iTunes…

    You have to do it

    But they already made it available for free - not sure who'd buy it at this point (other than us, of course). Besides, the fact that it was free helped it become popular in the first place.

  • Journeyer's right, no one will buy it. You can get it for free from here and from last.fm.

  • I think we need to put this, The Lewis Song for Gavin, and others into a Sidepodalbum. Straight to number one on iTunes baby. Its' gold... solid gold!

  • Journeyer’s right, no one will buy it. You can get it for free from here and from last.fm.

    The payoff should be in terms of how many people it can get to start listening to regular SPC shows and content. And eventually, those people may just start dropping by the comments and saying 'hi'. :)

  • Journeyer’s right, no one will buy it. You can get it for free from here and from last.fm.

    There's not much I can't get for free on the internet [if I wish] yet I still pay for stuff

  • Lukeh did a Piquet song to. Shouldn't take more than a couple of weeks to knock out the rest of the album.

  • There's not much I can't get for free on the internet [if I wish] yet I still pay for stuff

    That is true. Well, let's see what Mr and Mrs C decide to do. :)

  • Fantastic!

  • I'm in love.

    I could listen all day to that voice.

  • I love this song :-)

    Waiting for the special release of F1 minute with it on (and on you-tube)

    Great to hear it being played to Rob Smedley as well

    Well done :-) :-)

  • What I want to know is if that's Mr C on keyboards...

  • That, right there, is sheer brilliance! Thanks for the laugh. :-)

  • "Felipe Baby, there’s plenty lining up for your job

    Like Bob-bie K

    Alonso will show you up"

    Ferrari with Kubica and Alonso in 2010 :D?

    maybe this dream come true

    i hope..

    Okay, thanks to LPG, is there anyone else besides me that now wondering what Chrisitne would look like in a purple catsuit and pronouncing the word "Perfect" as "Perrrfect"....? a la Julie Neumar or Lee Meriwether?

    And does this make "me" Cesar Romero?

    Great that it is getting recognised as it is. You have a wonderful singing voice Christine....might be time to give up the day job...
