The F1 poet is following this year’s F1 Championship, providing motor-racing news and analysis in the form of poems. We’ll be posting some of his work over the season. Here’s the first, written after winter testing…
On Winter Testing
So winter testing’s over – what’s been learnt
About the latest F1 boys and girls?
Which cars are fast? And which ones really weren’t?
Which good down straights? Which quicker in the curls?
It seems the Merc is still the one to beat
Ferrari might be closer, who can tell?
As every year testing is hard to read
But possibly McLaren’s doleful knell
Has rung its last. Enough cars are pacy
– maybe this season will be quite tasty.
