As is the case on many Saturdays during the Formula One season, this past Saturday I was watching qualifying for Sunday's race. The race in this instance being the Spanish GP from
the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
During Q2, there was a shot of the Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne sitting in his car in the garage. Not unusual.
What caught my eye is what's lying on the cowl in front of him. It's a remote control!
Is it because his qualifying session was so dismal that he's actually watching TV? (He had a 10-grid spot penalty due to an incident in practice).
Maybe he's watching a video?
It just struck me as unusual - I figured the data they displayed was what the team wanted the driver to see, not what the driver wanted to see!
