Let me introduce you to Alex Caffi. Alex is an ex-F1 driver and now a Grands Prix Master. In his F1 career he started 56 races driving for the Osella, Scuderia Italia and Footwork teams. His highest placed position was 4th and he scored a total of six points.
Oh and he has a small bladder…
Here is Alex taking a leak before the start of the race but rather than a quick dash to the loos in the garage Alex has decided on a more public display.
Caffi is stood between the armco that separates the pit lane entrance and the main straight at Woodcote Corner. So he has the BRDC clubhouse to his left and the Woodcote stands to his right. For those not in the know the BRDC are the British Drivers Racing Club who are the owners of Silverstone and a stuffy lot from what I can make out.
Anyway he got a big cheer (from the crowds in the stands at any rate) and then waved, which seemed to break his concentration! I guess that once you get past 45 you have to start worriying about whether your bladder will last a full 60 mins!!!!
