At Brands Brands in May, the BMW team spent much of the Friday evening practicing pitstops with Bruno Spengler’s car.
It is here, away from the glaring lights and the TV personalties that races are often won and lost.
The seeds for the success enjoyed by Spengler (et al) are sown on quiet evenings such as these, where they aim to make such ferocious and intricate tasks seem like ballet.
Over and over and over again. Just practice. As Colin Chapman once famously said, “if you are not winning, you are not trying.”
