I’m sure you all remember the old proverb, or adage, or whatever. The one that goes:
It’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought stupid than to start yacking and remove any doubt.
Somebody should remind Toyota F1 driver Timo Glock about that.
He’s been on the interview circuit this week leading up to next weekend’s Grand Prix of Japan and the weather forecast isn’t good. Precipitation is expected.
Is he bothered? Goodness, no. In fact, he says he’s looking forward to rain.
"I’ve always been quick in wet conditions, where it comes down to the driver," he said on several occasions this week.
Hey, Timo. Care to remind everybody how good you were in the wet at Brazil last fall?
You know, the race where you were in fifth place and Lewis Hamilton got past you on the final curve of the final lap to win the world championship of drivers because you went 16 seconds SLOWER on that lap than you did the one before?
Yes, it was raining. But, in your words, you’re "always quick" in the wet.
So what happened?
