    The last Pastor heard from the marshals were “Just stay there with your helmet on, we’ll take care of everything!”

    Since this is Canada, the hockey analogy for Pastor’s early demise would be “riding the pine.”

    Pastor tried to sit in the folding chair, but missed.

    I know for Kimi would not sit on a £5 chair. I have asked for a golden framed chair! …

    “Oh come on, Stig told me he would only borrow the car for a couple of minutes…”

    3 seconds after this picture was taken, the wooden table crashed into the garden chair.

    Out of frustration, Pastor Maldonado considers a nearby John Deere riding mower as a tempting alternative to his Lotus. It would be faster amd would improve the sound of F1, and…he could continue to create his own racing lines off the track and still maintain traction. No brainer.

    What can I crash into next… The chair? The table? The trees? Whatever it is PDVSA will pay for it!!!

    I think I’ll just crash here for now.

    Pastor hates it when his stunt double is driving the car.

    Sigh…I’ve even broken the pull tab. :-(

    “Every year, dogs are abandoned on road…”

    “This is the most anyone has ever paid to watch the race from a picnic table.”
