Well, before today’s race in Bahrain, Ferrari president, Luca di Montezemolo, described this season as akin to taxi driving.
All I have to say after watching (and I promise to try and not give any spoilers away for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet), is that I hope I never, ever get in a taxi like that.
It was thrill a minute, riding by the seat of your pants, pure 100% adrenaline filled racing.
There was jostling for position from pole all the way down to the last car.
It was awesome.
Even the engines sounded great – despite people complaining about them not being V8s.
I literally was sitting on the edge of my seat. With 10 laps to go, my heart was beating faster than the rev in the cars and my adrenaline was pumping, so goodness only knows what the drivers were going through.
It has to be possibly one of the best Grand Prix’s I’ve watched in a very long time.
Roll on China 😉
So, today, Ferrari unveiled their new F14-T Formula 1 car on which the title hopes of Alonso and new team-mate Raikonnen rest.
Aside from it looking fabulously Ferrari red, as I looked at it, a vague flicker of recognition spread across my face.
Mmmm, thought I, it looks like Ferrari may have been watching Pixar’s “Cars 2”, check out Lightning McQueen’s Italian rival “Francesco Bernoulli”
Or is it just me that thinks this?
Heard an advert on the radio today …
“Kwik Fit offering Pirelli tyres at discount price”
My thought, I’m not surprised.
Will anyone buy them?
No offence, but if their tyres are shredding on F1 cars halfway round the track on their first lap, would I seriously want Pirelli tyres on my car?
I don’t think so 😉
