David Coulthard pokes fun at Mark Webber over reaction to Hamilton blunder

David Coulthard and Mark Webber raced together for two years at Red Bull in 2007 and 2008.

David Coulthard has made an amusing video remixing former Red Bull team-mate and Channel 4 colleague Mark Webber’s scream from the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in 2021.

Max Verstappen had caused a red flag in Baku last year when he suffered a puncture late on while leading, and the subsequent collision with the barrier on the home straight put him out of the running.

It left team-mate Sergio Perez in the lead ahead of the Dutchman’s title rival Sir Lewis Hamilton for the restart heading in the final laps of the race, so it was all to play for on the restart.

However, Hamilton had accidentally left the brake magic button on which is typically used under Safety Cars and red flags, and it heavily reduces the effectiveness of the braking system.

The Briton got a better start than the 32-year-old, but locked up heading into the first corner and went straight on, putting him outside the points.

Webber was co-commentating for Channel 4 alongside Alex Jacques and Billy Monger, and they all erupted upon seeing the calamitous restart for the seven-time champion, with Webber letting out a hilarious high-pitch scream.

This made for many a meme over the following weeks, and the memory returned as the circus rolled into Baku once more last weekend.

Coulthard put the screaming noise over the T-Rex roar at the end of the 2015 Jurassic World movie, before remixing it over the top of Taylor Swift’s ‘I knew you were trouble’ song.

The Briton then synced it with the infamous screaming beaver video, and then LeBron James’ celebration after hitting a game-winning three-pointer for Miami Heat at the Golden State Warriors.

Perez went on to win the race last season, and finished second in Baku this year as Verstappen claimed redemption for last year by winning.

Both Ferrari’s of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz retired from the race due to reliability failures, leaving George Russell to notch his third and Mercedes’ fourth podium of the year in P3, in front of team-mate Hamilton.
