I was mad at Bibendum ever since he chickened out and ruined the 2005 U.S. Grand Prix.

Years later, I met Bibendum at the Honda Indy Toronto. He was a quiet guy, Didn’t say much. But his seemingly permanent smile…kind of helped heal old wounds.

In honour of the 100th anniversary of his employer, Michelin, racers from the FIA Formula E series opened up about how much of an impact Bibendum had on their careers, and the state of racing today.
