This weekend at the Mexican Grand Prix, usual Verizon IndyCar Series analyst Townsend Bell is back in the F1 paddock, filling in for Will Buxton this weekend with Buxton tending to his family.
Bell’s IndyCar analyst colleague Paul Tracy famously donned a “luchador” mask in 2006 during the Champ Car race in Montreal, after he dueled with Alex Tagliani and Sebastien Bourdais in back-to-back races in San Jose and Denver.
But Thursday in Mexico City, it was Bell’s turn.
Bell teased it a bit on social media in Mexico City of his duel with a pair of luchadors Thursday evening in “Lucha Libre,” a form of professional wrestling in Mexico.
He accepted the challenge to get into the ring with a pair of luchadors, and you can see the full version above.
