    Crashes and Things ......

    I do enjoy a good crash! ... so I was disappointed to have opted out of watching Montreal. But what surprised me on hearing about the now infamous traffic lights shunt was the fact that no-one was breathalysed! Had those involved been so tested then one would most assuredly have been at least two bottles of vodka over the limit while the other would simply have registered an excess of hot air (right mangstadt, mick)? The latter being amply demonstrated by the alleged post race comment of, "We destroyed everyone." Wro-o-ong Lewis, you destroyed Kimi's Ferrari, the others will presumably have to wait their turn on a future date! My favourite comment in the now customary bi-weekly post race squabble (make that furore) on this forum was Mike's suggestion that F1 disputes be settled with a "duffing up round the back." Swift, summary justice - appeals to my intellectual side that does. And talking of intellect and/or the lack of it, Adam's ongoing against-the-odds battles to explain the rational to the irrational remain admirable yet painful. I fear that the last sound he ever hears may be the manic cackle of one of his looney protagonists coming from the secure ward next to the cardiac unit to which he has been rushed following his self-induced heart failure. Nutters 1 Adam 0. Which leads totally rationally to ... In the mayhem which is the accusations, explanations and recriminations on this forum following not just this race's smash but the crashes in all races might I suggest that there is one and just one cause of all crashes; which is that guys in very fast cars go racing .... simplistic I know but hey I'm just a simple guy (I know). So I'm not overly-concerned with who did what to whom or apportioning blame, it's just part of the action and, as I said, I do enjoy a good crash!
