After Fernando Alonso found himself back in a Renault yesterday for a test drive, WTF1 wanted to look back at how life has changed since the two-time F1 Champion first raced with the French team. Ah, simpler times.
Mobile phones had three uses: Texting. Calling. Playing Snake.
Sim Racing involved a basic wheel hooked up to a TV the size of an oven.
Everyone tried to own the ‘Surfer Look’ with shell necklaces, leather bracelets and hair bands. Please don’t bring this trend back. I beg you.
Disposable cameras were a must-have. Use up your film, take it to get developed, realise your thumb is in half the shots. It happened.
Coloured lenses on your sunglasses were a big trend. Match the colour to your outfit for extra style points.
‘Soul Patches’ were a totally acceptable facial hair option. Something else that we need to leave in the early ’00s. Someone get that soul patch its own Instagram account.
Owen Wilson was an actor and not Lightning McQueen.
Everyone owned one of those beanies that also doubled as a cap. Fashion darling, learn about it.
