I look at some other high risk sports like base-jumping and free climbing and think they must be nuts. That’s because I could not do that; I lack the knowledge, the skill and the passion. I hope those who may consider us to be somewhat crazy will respect that we understand the risks; we are passionate about what we do and we are professional in the way we go about our business.

Such small margins

Some of our air races have been won or lost by 1-100 of a second. That makes my 0.83 sec Abu Dhabi loss to Paul Bonhomme seem like quite a big margin and in terms of how we think and plan, it is actually quite a chasm. At 185 mph or so, it’s a lead of about 65 metres .. sufficient fuselage lengths for a convincing victory.
