    When you're running along a path, and run wide on the exit of a corner and bounce your head around like it's a rough Kerb.

    Or when you open your car boot for DRS on the motor way,
    And turn your heater knob on full for mix 3 :)
    Doing a formation lap in the morning before racing to work ;)

    When you downshift your flappy paddles approaching a tight bend while out walking, then upshift on the exit.

    I do this even more now, the worst thing is getting stuck behind someone and having to shift down to second gear.

    Dat awkward moment when you find yourself waking up lying in your bed at a position with your legs up high to press the pedals and your hands near your face to use the steering wheel.....

    Yes, I always do that :D It's so tough to drive when it's really heavy though, then I normally "drift" into "corners" (I guess that's one :D)
    and when you are driving a bike using the left brake (front) as downshifter, of course while actually braking with the right one. And when you use the right (rear) one as an upshifter when accelerating :D
    When you think the wind sound (or my bike, or I'm just weird :roflmao: ) while driving your bike fast is your engine revving up :D (it's really quiet though)

    edit:just saw in the link in your surce link completely, yes I hate it when you have wind coming in your face.. :roflmao:
    edit 2: this one is actually a bit more related: you know you've been watching F1 fr too long when you know that the sweeping uphill right at Spa is actually called Raidillon

    When you see a car ahead, then you speed up and drive very close to him, since you have to be in the 1sec gap to get DRS. And when you see a police car drive fast past you, then you speed up and follow him since you think that is safety car :whistling:

    Yeah... I have maybe watchd to much F1 and DTM :(

    You know you have been watching Formula One too long when you commentate on everything the other cars on the road are doing. :giggle:

    "That truck driver seems to have fallen asleep and is going past the yellow line. He will get a 5 second penalty!"
