Irvine On Women July 16 2001 04:40
Formula 1's playboy has revealed his theory behind women
Never one to keep his opinions to himself, Eddie Irvine shows the true man he is, this time with his view of women... apparently they can all
be compared to cars.
Speaking to The Sun, Irvine says his latest model is a Jaguar.
Something quite obvious maybe. But, the Ulsterman was in fact refering to his current girlfriend, 19-year-old Kathryn Rice.
"Kathryn is an E-type... my favourite car in the whole world, and a real thrill," he said.
"You have to compromise with women in the same way as you do with cars," he said. "If you want a nice comfortable ride you go for a Mercedes. If you want something very sexy but awkward you go for a Ferrari. If you want something easy to park, you go for a Cinquecento. Men have to ask themselves what they want."
However, he was quick to point out the disadvantages of women. He said: "Unlike cars, with women you can only have one!"
