I was just looking at the news at <a href=”http://www.speedcafe.com/2013/04/01/dick-johnson-racing-announces-bold-new-future/”>speed cafe</a> and thinking that’s not too surprising — Dick Johnson Racing has been having financial troubles this season, so having a new manufacturer come in and back them sounded about right. Honda would’ve been my guess, but the shape of that side window — why is he sitting in a DeLorean?
It’s been a while since I’ve been here for an April 1st, I don’t usually see anything show up until google do something tamely predictable.
Speaking of motor racing, I was _genuinely disturbed_ (in a way I never am by fiction tv, or even international news reports) after last week’s Malaysian F1 race. Of course my first reaction as an Australian was that vettel completely did the wrong thing but then the lasting implications of a team member not following instructions are much greater — and frankly, something you almost never see these days in any sport. Either through the big stick of money/no money + contracts, or sports psychology/”there’s no “I” in team” brain washing, you you never see a football player, or a cricket person, or pretty much any kind of sports player doing anything other than what they’re told.
It’s definitely given F1 journalism something to talk about and it will surely come back to bite that greedy, fearful sebastien vettel on the arse _(ass)_.
