He may have put Mr Bean to bed a few years ago but it seems Rowan Atkinson just can't shake off the funny character.
The 56-year-old actor was spotted at the Formula One Indian Grand Prix in Noida yesterday, but you'd be forgiven for thinking he was on set playing the lovable loner once again.
As he watched Formula One champion, Lewis Hamilton, clash with Felipe Massa during a race, Atkinson's facial expressions were extremely reminiscent of the childish character.
Wearing a pair of large headphones, the Johnny English star was seen wincing as he watched the events unfold, but genuine concern turned into angry disappointment as he pulled his hand up into the air and gritted his teeth.
It can only be assumed that the reason the father-of-two felt such a surge of emotion was due to Hamilton, 26, attempting to cut up his rival Messa which resulted in him crashing into his left-hand side-pod.
The day before the tense race, Atkinson was seen speaking with Hamilton in the McLaren garage during the final practice session prior to the young star qualifying for the important event.
Atkinson is well-known for his love of cars having written for several British magazines including Car, Octane, Evo, and SuperClassics - a short-lived UK magazine, in which he reviewed the McLaren F1 in 1995.
His public outburst yesterday probably came about because he is a lover of and a participant in car racing.
Atkinson appeared as racing driver, Henry Birkin, in the television play Full Throttle in 1995, but before that in 1991, he starred in the self-penned, The Driven Man, a series of sketches featuring him driving around London trying to solve his car-fetish, and discussing it with taxi drivers, policemen, used-car salesmen and psychotherapists.
Hamilton's accident could also have stirred up memories of Atkinson's past after he was involved in an accident in Cabus, Lancashire whilst driving his own McLaren F1.
The car was also damaged again in a serious crash in August this year when it caught fire after Atkinson reportedly lost control and hit a tree.
