Also, while I’m at it, I most certainly didn’t try to overtake Tony Scott on the outside— more like I tried to stop him overtaking me on the inside. However, the result was the same—yet more carnage for poor old C.R. Still, you’ll be relieved to learn that I have now retired from motor racing—although I may just make a comeback if I decide that C.R having too many accident-free races:
