    The voice says Germanic been-there-done-that authority. The use of phrases like “sportif” and “bella macchina” say classic Italian flair. Meanwhile, the shirt, hair and necklace say “woah brah, let’s hop in the Italia and score some babes.” If there’s a better encapsulation of Ferrari’s internationally recognizable combination of heritage, racing wonkery and nouveau riche gauche I have yet to witness it.

    His tone of voice lacked confidence.

    Terrible summary of his overview and persona. Sounds a bit over-infatuative. Even though I like to hear him talk.

    And a strike on the necklace.

    Sounds like his English is out of practice.

    Sounded to me more like they told him what to say and he was trying to remember these words in English.

    HA. Yeah, its totally picking on him for no reason, but I also have to say head looked too small for his body; or he's been body building.
    Carrot Top anybody?

    Disclaimer: Love the car and respect the Schumi...I even think his eclectic sense of style is kind of cool. But in this one he comes across a little too metrosexual.
