This is Noel Fielding’s take on the iconic color combination of white, red, yellow, green and black better known as Ayrton Senna driving the wheels off one of his McLarens, drawn upside down in felt-tipped pen on the back of a Royal Mail envelope for The Guardian. Fielding, who discussed his artistic influences, referred to Senna as enigmatic and spiritual and called his racing “almost like an act of poetry."
Although it has to be said that to my crayon-biased eyes, Fielding’s drawing looks suspiciously like Crayola. Do Brits use Crayola? Perhaps only the kind of Brits whose stand-up comedy is influenced by Ayrton Senna and who then call the output felt-tipped pen.
