Prob­lem chil­dren

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

As for re­peat of­fend­ers, Baird says ten­sions are height­ened in the low­er­half of the field, where ul­tra-com­pet­i­tive driv­ers try ev­ery trick in the book not to be last. “My prob­lem in this of­fice, is from 20th po­si­tion to the back – no one wants to be there,” he says.

Adding to that is Si­mona De­sil­ve­stro’s pres­ence, who, as the only fe­male on the grid, has suf­fered a trial by fire, flamed by frag­ile male egos. “No one wants to come back and say they got beaten by a girl. But I’m telling them, they’d bet­ter get used to it, be­cause she can drive,” says Baird.
