F1 OLYMPICS

The 2008 Olympics start next week, Mark reckoned he wouldn't mind trying the cycling, while David said he'd go for the long distance running but what would the rest of the F1 team do?

Marathon Truckies: They're used to covering long distances
Synchronised Swimming Mechanics: Perfect pit stop coordination
Trampolining: Marketing Used to bouncing up and down, but not getting anywhere
Decathlon Team Principal: Good at everything
Rowing Press Officers: The only people confident enough to move forwards while facing backwards
Pole Vaulting: Nick Heidfeld Pushing to overtake his team-mate
Volleyball Strategists: Give them a ball, they give it straight back to you or drop it
Putting out the Olympic Flame: Health and Safety
Heptathlon Designers: Everyone knows it's very clever, but no one's really sure what it is
Synchronised Diving Driver Managers: Very nice to look at, but possibly pointless
Water Polo Driver Trainers: The only people you could persuade to take horses into a swimming pool
Fencing Paint Shop: They love wearing face masks and white clothes

QUOTES

Car 10 MARK WEBBER, 1st Practice P11, 2nd Practice P12

"We've got some work to do tonight to try and work out where we can find some more pace in the car. We had a good run in terms of laps completed, but it would always be nice to be a bit quicker. We'll be back tomorrow and will do our best."

Car 9 DAVID COULTHARD, 1st Practice P12, 2nd Practice P13

"A normal Friday for us today, making our tyre comparisons and getting used to the conditions. I think it's going to be very tight again in the mid-group, but we'll see how tomorrow goes."
