This one is a few days old, but is such a classic that it transcends topicality.
It comes from an interview with FIA president Max Mosley published in Autosport recently in which that august individual discusses the future of the World Rally championship.
And he says this:
In my opinion, the only possible excuse for cancelling the stage would be if you physically couldn’t drive up the road. It’s happened, I think, to all of us from time to time: you’re trying to get up to a resort in the Alps and there’s black ice and you simply can’t get the car up. It’s sliding back on you with the wheels turning.
We know, Max. It’s just such a trial, isn’t it?
