Blethers - Mistaken identity
Couldn't resist this. The usually excellent Pirelli F1 press service issued their usual quota of interesting and informative pre- and post-event press releases in the run-up to and after the Canadian Grand Prix. This is an extract from one which arrived this morning.
" Force India’s Paul Di Resta was the highest-placed driver to try something different, having started from 17th on the grid with the medium tyre. The Englishman stopped just once after 56 laps on the medium compound to finish seventh."
It's simple mistakes like this that can escalate into warfare and invasions. Remember, the cross border raid in 1977? When the tartan army stole the goalposts at Wembley? If such a mistake is made again, we'll set Wee Eck on them!
