As he settled down to watch the start of the race last Sunday, our Sky Sports F1 presenter Simon Lazenby got into conversation with our floor manager for the weekend, Marc, a man normally known for his above average organisational skills, rather than his mystic predictions.
However in this case, the boy came up with a 6 Lotto Ball pearler of a prediction as Si asked him who he thought was going to win the race? “Both Mercedes to come a cropper and Max Verstappen to win,” was his reply. Sadly, by now it was way to close to ‘lights out’ to get a bet on the result but it’s safe to say that Marc now has the respect of all his colleagues and never will we argue with him again when he tells us to be somewhere at a certain time. An instruction that is harder than it looks, just ask Johnny Herbert.
