Lewis Hamilton Sky’s The Limit – The Notorious B.I.G. An accomplished feel-good track from The Notorious B.I.G’s second album, Sky’s The Limit is a cracking tune with which to open our playlist. The lyrics are self explanatory in terms of why we chose it as it reflects Lewis’absolute self belief and determination to succeed. There’s been talk of Lewis maybe featuring on a rap album or recording something on his own, potentially with his Pussycat Doll girlfriend or maybe with P Diddy, Lewis’good mate who also produced The Notorious B.I.G.’s albums. Heikki Kovalainen Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger – Daft Punk No, we are not suggesting that Heikki is a daft punk. Far from it. Realising that his fitness had not quite been as good as it needed to be in 2008, the Finn’s woken up to his responsibilities and spent the winter training his backside off to be ready for 2009. Daft Punk haven’t shown their real faces in years, just as we don’t think we’ve seen the real side of Heikki yet. A born racer, this year he’s set to be harder, better, faster and stronger! Felipe Massa Pride (In the name of Love) – U2 If you want to know why we picked this one, just cast your minds back four months to the podium in Sao Paulo at the end of the Brazilian Grand Prix. The emotion in Felipe’s face after putting in the performance of his life only to be denied at the final moment and the dignified manner in which he accepted defeat was incredible. Neither the Brazilian nation nor Formula 1 itself could have asked for a figure in which to be more proud. So this one, naturally, is for him. Kimi Raikkonen I just wasn’t made for these times – The Beach Boys We were originally going to pick “The Battle of Who Could Care Less”by Ben Folds Five for Kimi following his performance in 2008, but this Beach Boys classic was just too perfect for him to drop it off the list. Kimi admitted last season that he wished he’d been born 30 years earlier and been able to race in the 1970s… a time with less politics, harder racing, and less restraint on drinking. As he put it himself, Kimi just wasn’t made for these times. Robert Kubica Maybe Tomorrow – Stereophonics In the and 2008 Robert Kubica made his breakthrough as the man many felt would raise biggest challenge to the F1 order. But BMW was always one step behind… quick, but not quite quick enough. So Kubica was left looking to the future questions of what if? After publicly criticising BMW for not maintaining development through 2008, his hope lay in 2009. Maybe Tomorrow? That question will soon find its answer. 34
