round 19: haiku bob – slipstreaming

This week’s match report comes from Budapest in Hungary where I attended the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Fascinating city. Wonderful race. And another Magpie victory.

 

practice session —

every one of Cloke’s kicks

is a goal

 

 

safety car —

Prismall’s knee collapses

at the first turn

 

 

slipstreaming –

Pendlebury moves his shadow

this way and that

 

 

chicane –

a little swivel

and Krakouer breaks free

 

 

muggy day —

Bombers cling

to the lead

 

 

 

change in the lead —

every players’ role the same

but different

 

 

Button by

the length of the straight–

Fasolo’s fifth

 

 

*blue flag —

the crowd cheers every time

Swan touches it

 

*A blue flag warns the driver that he is about to be lapped and to let the faster car overtake him.

    Beautiful work HB. Watching Krakouer and Fasolo mesmerize the Bombers was one of the highlights of the season for me.
