TJ13 will be doing a monthly collaboration with theF1Poet reviewing the happenings in the world of Formula One, in verse.
Let’s take a look back at the dim month of June
Where F1 was not playing, a pleasant tune
In Montreal, a familiar smell would linger
Vettel strolled to victory waiving that dreaded finger
After the race, there was some shocking news
Where the death of a marshal gave the sport a bruise
Formula One drama had finally come knocking
To be quite honest, it’s not the least bit shocking
It all started one day, after the Spanish Grand Prix
With a secret tyre test with Merc and Pirelli
So the FIA called an International Tribunal
In a formal format that was somewhat communal
As all sides were heard and some blame was laid
Just a slap on the wrist and some monies paid
So off to Silverstone, round number 8 for F1′s throne.
The results by now are certainly known and so are the reasons for which tyres were blown.
Another dark day for the sport we adore
New safety concerns were brought to the fore
Emergency meetings and new tyre constructions
With Kevlar belts, to stop rear tyre destruction
McLaren still struggling and appearing quite limp
Are conditions in Woking a wee bit skimp?
Monza too seems to be in some trouble
Might this historic race be on the bubble?
Rumours about finances and teams in despair
And allegations of some new “Traction control” affair?
When F1 needs to grow, it needs positive press
Instead it appeared to be in a state of distress
Well F1 is just fine, it moves incredibly fast
And the dim month of June is a thing of the past
Before wrapping up this quick little review
Let’s pay some respect where it is certainly due
Birmingham’s son, Graeme Murray Walker
Is a legend of sorts and a real slick talker
I’ve listened to Murray, most of my life
I’ve spent more time with him, than I have with my wife
Join me please, in wishing him well
And a quick recovery, from this rough spell
Stay tuned for when court, will next reconvene
Til then, remember the name, it’s The Judge 13
