Yeah, he's quite good too. He can change both wheels in under 20 minutes. And he's cheap.


And at the end of the race he sells camel 'souveniers' to the fans for their roses ;)

F1 could learn a thing or two from Chariot Racing. I bet back then( Paul will have to confirm) there was lots of overtaking going on AND it must have cost billions of pounds less to run.

Formula One = Fail. :loser:


I blame the current F1 cars.
