Following the absolute clusterfxxk that resulted from the “debriss” incident at last year’s Bathurst 1000, teams up and down pitlane have apparently learned that if they’re going to win, they need to teach their race engineers about the whole silent “s” thing.
Announcing the new program from his office at Triple 8 Red Bull HQ, Head of Supercars Paulie the Parity Pelican said he was “hopeful” the mistakes of last year would not be repeated.
“What we’re hoping to achieve is a situation where race engineers at Triple 8… I mean.. All the other teams… obviously… learn the correct way to pronounce words with silent “s”’s.” the seabird explained.
Paulie went on to explain that it would look a bit sus if the #97 car of Shane van Gisbergen and Garth Tander was to go full safety car mode to assist the #88 entry of Whincup and Lowndes if their race engineers ruined the whole charade because they didn’t understand the whole silent “s” thing.
The Waterton Chronicle spoke to a Red Bull engineer, who explained that despite the training, the team are still fairly confident Jamie will choose to be unable to hear or understand them at times he deems necessary, regardless of fuel levels.
This reporter understands Jamie is participating in some extramural English courses in the hope that he might be able to comprehend his situation this time.
