F1 Fans – Are You Ready For This?

by on March 12, 2012

March 2012

 This is a poem dedicated to a good friend of mine and to all F1 fans.  I’m sure we’re all feeling like this right about now…

Just days away, from the first Grand Prix
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be

Then here with you in Albert Park
From first morning light, till after dark

Seems like forever since the last race
Now a new championship, is about to give chase

Pre-season tests have come to an end
There’s no time left, for teams to lend

Journalists and TV crews
Reporters ready, to share their views

Almost everyone is already here
Photographers itching, to use their gear

Paul Hembery brought, new Pirelli tyres
It’s the second season, as official suppliers

As teams arrive and setup shop
Their quest begins to reach the top

Screens and speakers have been connected
Concession stands are being erected

Grandstands up as is expected
All viewing angles have been perfected

Race Marshals have been selected
Briefed and trained and well-directed

Health and Safety drills are done
All systems Go! There’s no dry run

The F1 BUZZ is in the air
Team flags and colours are everywhere

My nerves are shot, I just can’t wait
To hear those cars, down the main straight

So let me ask, you ready for this?
When the lights go out… it’s F1 Bliss
