Formula 1 Racing is very much about driving the perfect race, taking every opportunity, whether to overtake, change tyres, when to use the KERS. It is fairly mind boggling, but if you engage with it, totally fascinating.
The normal car driver in Cairo, as well as one or two other places I’ve visited, drives like a formula 1 driver, bumber to bumper in traffic, changing lanes to the left or the right at will. I couldn’t do it, I haven’t learned to drive like that.
I have had a go at race driving, in a Formula Ford car. Exciting, definitely not the same as driving a saloon, and I didn’t drive it fast enough. It just didn’t seem right to race into the corners fast, then brake heavily, as I had been shown.
Don’t get me wrong, I do like driving efficiently, and overtaking, and get frustrated behind over careful drivers, and central lane huggers. But I want to relax while driving, not take every car in front as a target.
My first driving instructor taught me to read and anticipate traffic. He once made the point that he never got frustrated, even when travelling to London or further. He just drove steadily, and didn’t get there much later than those haring down.
I think Jesbite tends his life to be lived like that. Not in a panic, not in a rush, but intentionally and purposefully.
Don’t be a snail, but ask for and use the wisdom Jesus promises, and walk competently.
