F1 Drivers' Dilemma

So a group of us was having lunch when the topic was the Formula 1 race about to take place the next day.

the ear-shattering sound the car makes as it rounds a bend...make sure you wear ear plugs....260km per hour...flameproof overalls, boots...stamina, endurance...

It was all blah blah blah to me. The swirling egg in my kong foo chow blowing kisses at me was more interesting....

At first.

Then PaulV was saying:

the drivers wear diapers...

that,of course, made my drooping ears go

b o i nnnngg!

you mean they don't have pee stops? my eyebrows are looking at him now.

how can you have pee stops if you're in the middle of an F1 race?

but it's just a short race what....why do they even need to pee?

it's a short but very STRESSFUL race....sweat...fluids lost...blah blah..

...he lost me at diapers.

ewwww.. just like a man not to be able to hold it all in. On a long drive, I know some men who wriggle and wiggle and squirm (with such sinuous hip and abdominal movements that would put Shakira to shame. yeah, and Hips Don't Lie.) waiting for the next petrol station, rest area, any building that looks like it has a toilet in it....only to stop at the next


To pee.

Then they give you that Tom Hanks face, the one after he. let. it. all. go. in Green Mile.

In this movie however, he had an acute leaking problem and was relieved he could go without pain after such a long time of suffering. You've got to love that face! especially at 0.32...

I'm glad I'm a woman. No woman will stop at no-tree, no-sir, for no-nothin'. uh-huh. Apart from the fact that we are the more environmentally-friendly gender, we'd rather let everything crystallize inside there, than do something so beneath us. hmmph.

* the writer says that she looked up google to find out what exactly an F1 driver does if he needs to take a leak and there were various theories given...pee in their even pooped apparently...wear a gadget that collects the fluid...wear diapers...they don't pee at the question remains in her mind. are there pee stops during pit stops?

(one Starbucks treat for the best caption for the photo above)

    I think F1 drivers sweat so much that they actually need more water. LOL
