Friday Fun - F1 Ville // A whole town named after something F1 related? You decide the details

Published by Gavin Brown

So it emerged this week from none other than Peter Windsor that Western Australia has decided to build a town over the site of an old circuit and call the town 'Brabham' after the legendary Sir Jack Brabham.

Extending that theme a little, this week's Friday Fun is:

If you were to name a new town after something in F1, what would it be like?

Using the Brabham example, it would be "...a small but industrious town, well liked by everyone, has won a few awards and has survived a few crises unscathed..."

Surely you can do better though. Here are some primers to get you rolling:

  • Alonso?
  • Schumacher?
  • Vettel?
  • Webber?
  • Hamilton?
  • McLaren?
  • Rob Smedley?
  • Eddie Jordan?
  • Flavio?
  • Bernie?

I think this one will be a lot of fun so get your thinking caps on - I can't wait to see what you can come up with!
