Flabbergasted by Formula 1
I’m no Formula 1 super fan – I was dragged to the Dutch Grand Prix a couple of times as a child, and my only abiding memories?
- The cars – too loud
- Free cigarettes being handed out in the pit lane; those were the days!
Despite my lack of fandom, I sat down to watch some GP highlights earlier this week.
My daughter is doing ‘Formula Student’ this year at university, where she’s tasked with designing and building a single-seat racing car, and she wanted to get some tips, so I tagged along on the sofa.
I was immediately blown away.
Not by the cars. Or the graphics. Or the colours, noise, cheers from the crowd, or anything like that.
The thing that bowled me over?
