…there’s nothing on TV.
…your family finds time to go karting together.
…you suddenly feel tempted to spend all day playing computer games instead of on the internet.
…you wonder where half your social circle’s gone.
…household talk centres around boats and work instead of cars and racing.
…you can’t predict when lunch will be served at weekends because Mum can’t guarantee a time when everyone will be in the same room.
…you’ve forgotten where you left your stack of paper (which is mostly used for writing race notes).
…you’ve bought a book on F1 simply to fight off the lack of race-based adrenaline.
…you scream at Twitter to give you some proper news and you start defining “proper news” as “anything involving racing in some way”.
…the sun is shining and you see white fluffy circuit-shaped clouds in the sky.
