“It seems obvious to me that Max is simply emulating this behaviour in a bid to increase the realism of the game whilst simultaneously enticing ambulance chasing fans for the benefit of the viewing figures.”

“Everyone secretly wondered what it would be like to race in F1 with the crash settings off,” Chunks continued.

“At least Bernie’s happy,” he explained.
