    I think it’s a preseason gag. He’s done this sort of hair thing a few times.

    Not really. I mean really bald. Like a fashion statement. Dwayne Johnson bald.

    Well, to this Frenchman here, the most interesting thing is actually seing "toupée" written with an "é" as if the word was french; but it is not.
    "Toupée" does not exist in French; the original french word is "toupet", which means "a wild tuft of hair".
    "Toupet" gave "Toupee" in English, in the sense of "a wig".
    And now the English "Toupee" is "francisé" in "Toupée"; some kind of reverse engineering...interesting indeed.

    As for Vettel, if his looks is now close to Stirling Moss or Fangio, that's not bad; but what is expected from him is not a matter of look.
    I guess that by the end of the year we will have an answer for good.

    We call it a syrup, but that's probably slang for wig.

    Eddie Jordan wears a syrup.

    He should maintained that. I believe it coincided with one of his best Ferrari performance season.

    If I had to guess, he probably stopped using Rogaine.

    This poetically revels the fundamental difference in personality between Elton Hamdashian and Seb. Elton has invested probably millions in hair restoration. Seb, nope F it. Doesn’t matter.

    I don't think one person could spend that much on hair restoration.

    If it never mattered to Seb, then why has he bothered with the toupee for so many years now?

    I've said it before. I think it is a combover.
