Re: I'll never really understand...

Which is pretty much the story I've heard from a couple of people who went to work for F1 .

Only relaxing time (unless you're pit lane crew) is during the actual race itself. rest of the time you're stuck in the garage wrestling with the spanners...

And dont even think of working in the supply chain, "we make F1 parts" sounds so glamorous when going for that dream job.

Not so fun when a F1 team phone up at 4pm wanting a new design of gearbox housing made, and you know its going to take 8 hrs of solid programming to turn the model into machine code, then 20 hrs of machine time to turn the code into metal..... but the F1 team want it on the plane to god knows where at 5am the next day....

Glad I'm out of that really....
