When you try your best, but you don't succeed // Ralf Schumacher takes a test with Force India

Ralf testing in Jerez

One of my favourite stories for a long time comes courtesy of Mr Ralf Schumacher. No surprises there, he is usually good for a laugh.

He tested for Force India this week, and let's be honest, he made a bit of a hash of it. He had mechanical problems (admittedly not his fault), he crashed and almost hit a tyre wall (probably his fault) and ended up at the bottom of the time sheets.

So, what do you do if you are going for a job and you have a really bad interview? Or if you want something quite a lot but realise you've ruined any chance you ever had? You pretend that you never wanted it in the first place, of course.

I don't think I will be driving for Force India. I want to achieve something and I don't think I can do that with Force India. I am going home now and we will see.

Bless his heart. We understand Ralf, we really do.

There were a few complaints here at Sidepodcast Towers about there being a picture of Ralf on the site, so in the interest of being fair and unbiased, here's another Force India tester.
