The Miss Scarlet Solution
Journalism has abandoned the discussion of actual racing with the championship closing so quickly. Instead, they speculate pointlessly about who feels how much tension. This is “Pepto Bismol reporting.” However, all these riders have been racing since childhood. They all know the truth. The only way to move forward is to concentrate on today’s contest instead of worrying about energy-wasting concerns. Scarlett O’Hara did it in Gone With the Wind.
She said, “I can’t even think about it right now.” “If I do, I’ll go crazy. Tomorrow, I’ll be thinking about it.”
I still vividly remember Gary Nixon winning the Laguna Seca National despite rumors by do-gooders that he was in dire straits. Concentrate on the problem at hand.
Similar to Quartararo, Bagnaia addressed Sepang’s problem today by being observant and analytical. Bagnaia was passed by Bastianini on lap 11, but Bagnaia responded by being attentive and analytical.
