F1 fever..

.. and the need for speed.

Its the F1 season again and time for all the racing enthusiasts to come out and play. i was in suria klcc on saturday and right there by the lobby where they had this mini exhibition going on, you could almost smell the track through the feverish excitement of the crowd.

Why do some people (me included) find pleasure in speed?

What draws us to fast cars and even faster driving?

Is it the feeling of power?
The rush of adrenaline coursing through our veins?
The lack of control in an otherwise regulated existence?
Is it to compensate for the excitement missing from our dull & dreary lives?
A means of escape?

There must surely be 1001 different reasons for each and everyone of us... but i sometimes wonder if it all boils down to our inherent fascination with death.
