The title of this report is one of a string of quotes from Murray Walker. I grew up watching F1 on Sunday afternoons and one could always count on Murray to find a way to murder the Queen’s English. Here is a couple more for your reading pleasure. “Schumacher wouldn't have let him past voluntarily. Of course he did it voluntarily, but he had to do it.” Also, “I don't make mistakes. I make prophecies which immediately turn out to be wrong.”
1. As if it’s not slippery enough on these first sessions the puddles add a visual reminder to be careful. Savina (read Jens/Lisa) has picked a fine day for her Formula car debut. By all accounts she did great. Her outings bragging rights include being one of only 3 drivers that did NOT test the rotational capabilities of their cars. She also performed many acts of bravery and bravado which I will look forward to reading about in her first race report.
I ran the RF-93K, the first time this car has seen rain or been on the track before 11am! Much laughter was directed at me for cleaning the car immediately on return to the pits. In my defense I was afraid that Mike would arrive and repo the car.
2. The track is drying nicely. The threats of a deluge of Biblical proportions have given way to a partly cloudy, cool and breezy day. Perfect for testing! Had a good second session, I am starting to generate a list of things that need to be moved to get really comfortable in the car. Don’t mention this to Lisa as I am sure she will add one extra cinch to the seat belts just because!
