It is unclear what the formula one holds for a girl who is afraid to even drive a car and cross a road like me. My brothers always teased me by asking me not to go around telling everyone that I am a big fan of Michael Schumacher while driving as they said it was an insult to Schumi. Ceh!
As for me, there is only one reason for liking formula one; the technology.
Alonso was quoted saying,
“This is Formula One. This is about technology, how precise everything works together from driver, engineer, down to mechanics. This is Formula One and not Cirque du Soleil. If people want to see extra show interludes they probably should reconsider if they want to watch Formula One.”
Oh no! I am quoting Alonso! I couldn’t believe I just did that. Haha~
I do watch other sports too like epl, tennis and badminton as dad loves all those sports. In fact it was dad who first introduced formula one to me when Sepang was first built in 1999 but a few years later he regretted of doing so because I have become way too fanatic with this sport. Haha~ ( abah, I think you have grown too fanatic to Arsenal too~ =P)
For me in Formula One, it’s not the face but the skills that take my breath away, (but some of them are really handsome), it’s not the speed but the technology that accelerates the car that glues me to the sofa in front of the tv. (the speed terrifies me. . 350 kmph? God! Yet, they are organizing a drive save campaign. *rolling eyes*.), it’s not the matter of who won the race but who improves the most is the thing I’m looking forward to see in each race. (but of course I am hoping Schumi to win the race) and it’s not the car but the things they did to the car to win the race that gripped me. (I know Schumi’s Mercedes but I can’t deny that deep inside me I wish Ferrari is the team that I’m supporting. sigh)
In Formula one, everything is so high-tech. Sometimes, if they are forecasting the rain to fall in 3 minutes, it really rains at the end of the 3 minutes. Whoaa~ But of course there were times when they were wrong too. After all, they are just human…
Even though most of the times I know nothing about the car especially when it comes to its specific part, I am still so proud to be part of this high-tech sport and listen to them talking about development and technology. It’s so fascinating to actually realize how fast human can think and develop a new technology if they really have a real motivation to do so. In every race, when they discover something is amiss or has gone haywire, they react to it within a second. That is the most interesting part about Formula One that I love- the ability to think & change fast in order to adapt with the situation. I really wish I’m capable of that too in managing my own life~
p/s = I know something is wrong with the language but my brain is not functioning well these past few days. I have no idea what went wrong with my brain. It’s getting way too soggy and sluggish that I’m already kinda starting to get so piss off with my very own brain. Perhaps it’s time to try the head banging maneuver?
