The former McLaren driver was his typical jokey self as he discussed his television endeavour with Sky Sports pundit Ted Kravitz, admitting that he just wants ‘to have a bit of fun with it’.
He said: “No, I can’t promise you that [I will not be boring in commentary for Canadian GP]. I thought you were going to say, ‘Promise to me you won’t curse!’ That’s what everyone is so nervous about.
“Will’s obviously a funny guy and I think he knows how to do this stuff. If he feels it’s getting too technical, I’m sure he’ll bring it away from that and ask me something about whatever.
“I just want to have a bit of fun with it. I kind of relate to it like sitting on the couch with your mates and just talking and watching the race.”
