Surprise Choice of Ferrari Back-Up Driver

Post by lee »

I am shocked more so than anyone else on this news. To be told via Startline of this news is a little disappointing. As Magic Motorsports 3rd and reserve driver I thought I would be in contention for this opportunity. The in season testing ban has also dented any chances too I suspect.

As for KERS I have knowledge of not only Halfords chargers but those made by Sealey and Clarke. Maybe I should let it be known that I have not retired but am having a Prost like sabbatical. If there are any drives going please consider me as I need all the revenue to support my fledging airline.





(great article by the way :D )

.................and you being an electrical engineer. How can you claim to have a knowledge of KERS if you were shocked?

An electrician once told me 'if your touching something you think may be live, always lean back as an electric shock contracts your muscles and this will pull you away from the power source rather than on to it!!!' :shock:

Needless to say I haven't tested this theory! :lol:
