the american formuls one grand prix at indianapolis is underway with only six cars racing…
as i understand it, there is a problem with michelin tyres not being up to scratch..and a desire for a chicane to built on one segment of the track to counter/compensate for, that ..
the teams said ‘do it’..formula one said ‘no’..most teams said ‘we won’t race, if you don’t’…
and they didn’t..
so we have six cars going around the track..a stand full of 200, 000 really pissed off race fans, starting to demand refunds..
full cans of beer have been lobbed at the ferrari drivers as they go past..security issues both on and off the track…
it’s all going down, in what must be one of the biggest sporting cock-ups, ever..
formula one racing is trying to build popularity in a largely indifferent america..i think they’ve blown it, don’t you..?
(btw..that rustling sound you can hear in the background is flocks of lawyers falling over each other as chase this huge ambulance…not a pretty sight eh?..they’ll be whimpering with excitement and slavering at the same time)
update ..it’s winners podium time..and the crowd are pissed off and booing and baying..
