Some people just don't 'get' sport. They say it's pointless, facile, that it doesn't matter.
But they are wrong. They are wrong because sport, like so many things in life, is much more than the sum of its parts. Sport matters because it means something to people.
So it is with Formula 1, which outwardly seems simply a collection of rich blokes shipping expensive cars around the world to drive around in circles as fast as they can for a few hours every other weekend.
