....to insomniacs the world over as there usual fix of watching cars going round and round a race circuit for two hours every fortnight for six months a year still continues to be more effective than any sleeping pill ever invented.
Spokesman for the Society of Insomniacs Anonymous David Tuttle summed up the relief of his membership by stating ' all of our members breathed a huge sigh of relief yesterday as the race progressed into its usual mundane procession. I consider myself to be the worst sleeper in the society but by lap three I was pushing up more Z's than the whole hibernating squirrel population of Epping Forest. We've had our concerns of the years that the sport may actually be getting more exciting especially in the days of Nigel Mansell when he was bringing his devil may care racing ability to the sport. Fortunatley for us insomniacs Mansells exciting driving stlye was negated by his post race interviews where by his voice was so morobund it could have easily sent into immediate slumber a charging Rhino at fifty paces'.
Formula 1 chiefs were unavailable for comment but come rain or shine Bernie Eccleston is still an incredibly rich bastard on the back of a sport that has about as much entertainment value as sitting watching paint dry with the lights switched off.
