AFTER last weekend’s single-file procession of Formula One cars through a city no one’s heard of, Lewis Hamilton said his race had been ruined because new rules meant his pit crew couldn’t tell him over the radio how to fix his car.
There are a number of buttons and switches on the steering wheel which engage all sorts of engine settings, and he argued that he didn’t know which ones to press and hold and which needed turning off then on again.
if he spent a bit more time with the instruction booklet...
Hmmm. I’m not sure this argument washes, really.
Because Lewis, above, is paid a great deal of money to operate that car and maybe, just maybe, if he spent a bit more time with the instruction booklet and a bit less time on Instagram with his dog and his jet ski, he’d have been able to cope.
