Ally McCoist makes hilarious F1 blunder after accidentally rewatching Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

Ally McCoist had a moment to forget this morning, as he admitted he had sat down to watch the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix without realising it was a replay from last weekend.

Speaking on the talkSPORT Breakfast show, McCoist moaned of how the F1 is becoming 'a non-event' after watching Red Bull's Sergio Perez cruise to victory in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Unbeknown to the former Scotland international, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix had taken place last weekend, and he was in-fact watching a replay of the same race, much to the delight of co-host Laura Woods, who could hardly contain her laugher:



"It's becoming a non-event the Grand Prix, isn't it." uttered a dejected McCoist, who has seemingly given up with the F1 after only two events.

"Have we even got an F1 guest? Have we given up on it already." asked Woods, blissfully unaware of where the conversation was heading.

McCoist added "It was, it was Saudi Arabia at the weekend. Was I watching a replay?!"

"That was two weekends ago Ally!" Laura responded, as she burst into laugher.


"Was I watching a replay? You're joking?

"Aye I was! I thought to myself: 'that's brilliant, [Sergio] Perez has won two in a row!" Added a red-faced McCoist, as he began to realise his error.

McCoist went on to admit that he had watched the actual event as if it was live, before stating he had turned it off after 25 minutes as he though "this is boring, it's going to be another one-two".


"In my defence I didn't watch it all, I watched about 25 minutes as I thought to myself: 'this is boring, this is going to be another one-two'. Which it duly turned out to be!"

Woods ended the conversation in typically witty style: "Incredibly predictable as it had actually already happened!"

The conversation came following Red Bull's red-hot start to the Formula One season, in which star-studded duo Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez have secured a one-two finish in each of the opening races.

The 2022 Constructor's Championship winners are the overwhelming favourites to claim yet another title, sitting 49 points ahead of their nearest rivals - Aston Martin - after the opening two races.
