Red Bull Racing F1 - Sao Paulo survival guide

09.10.2009: Brazil is like a drug that Formula One can’t get enough of. With great food, powerful drinks, intoxicating music (but not as intoxicating as Caipirinha) and beautiful people, what’s not to like? Over the years, we have even learned

BRAZILIAN GRAND PRIXVIEW

Brazil is like a drug that Formula One can’t get enough of. With great food,  powerful drinks, intoxicating music (but not as intoxicating as Caipirinha) and beautiful people, what’s not to like? Over the years, we have even learned to appreciate the ‘minimalist’ paddock facilities. But, like any drug, there comes a time when it’s best to Just Say No! Here are some questions to which, when in Brazil, you really should answer in the negative:

“Is that a real Rolex?”
“Would you like an eighth Caipirinha?”
“Should I stop at red traffic lights?”
“Would you like to meet a very pretty girl I know?”
“Is that really a girl?”
“Would you like more meat?”
“Would you like me to park your car?”
“Have you considered getting by with just one kidney?”
“Should I stop if a car runs into the back of me?”
“Will my wife believe the worn g-string she finds in my suitcase is a gift for her?”


SAO PAULO SURVIVAL GUIDE PART TWO

It ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings


The famous quote originates from the world of American basketball, but it’s equally apt for Formula One. In case you haven’t noticed, for the first time since 2003, the Brazilian Grand Prix is no longer the last race of the season. So concentrate hard and follow our advice to avoid putting it in the wall with just two laps to go:

Please…

Don’t leave the press room on Sunday night and sell your pass to a spectator
Don’t go around saying, “see you next year mate!”
Don’t go on a three week holiday
Don’t file your final story with a cheery note telling the Sports Editor what you really think of him, on the basis you’re not working for that paper next year

Do remember the clocks change on Saturday night, going forward one hour. That  means turning the dial clockwise, unlike the Interlagos track that goes anticlockwise.
Great, still not over the Singapore-Japan-Europe-Brazil jet lag and the gods rob you of another hour’s sleep…
