We beat you on the track


We beat you on the track

We may not have the glamour, the romance, the panache,
We may not have the road cars that shoot by in a flash,
But we’re not really bothered, we just don’t give a Jack;
‘Cos when it comes to racing, we beat you on the track!

We don’t have illustrious histories, in fact we’re very new.
But we’ve soon learnt to play the game, there’s not much we can’t do.
We’ve watched and learnt our lessons, now we’re leaders of the pack;
And when we go out racing, we beat you on the track!

We’re good at multi-tasking, let out driver run the team.
And if things don’t work out his way, perhaps you’ve heard him scream?
But when he’s being naughty, we don’t give him a smack;
‘Cos when he goes out racing, he beats you on the track!

We’re great at holding parties, the best on the grid,
You may think we’re not serious…Who you tryin’ to kid?
We enjoy the ambience, we like to have a crack,
And in between the fun times, we beat you on the track!

We’re a fizzy drinks company, our drinks keep you awake,
We are the butt of many a joke because of what we make,
But you can name call all you like, we can take the flack.
Because when we go racing, we beat you on the track!

You can hire the top designers, to try to chase us down,
One for this and one for that, we love to watch them frown.
But we’ve got Adrian Newey, and he’s really got the knack,
Of making F1 racing cars that beat you on the track!

We own this current era, we know how to win,
We’ve torn up the rule book and put it in the bin.
There’s major changes coming, and horsepower we may lack,
But would you really bet against us winning on the track?

    Nice poem, but have you gone over to the dark side?

    Oh no! Definitely not! Just felt in poetic mode, and it was kindov a follow up to a Ferrari one I wrote.

    That would be good. I’ll have to hope the inspiration comes, almost I too close with Lewis to write one
