Fans of GP+ will have seen that (amazingly) we managed to slash our record for the production of the magazine, bringing in the 80-pager in one hour and 45 minutes after the chequered flag (give or take a minute or two). We were at the airport about 25 minutes after that and having wangled an upgrade on Emirates (We love you guys!!) we took off while the F1 press releases were still coming out back at Marina Bay.
Lots of people have asked us how we manage to do this, but sadly we cannot say much, for fear of giving away trade secrets. Suffice to say that the most efficient method of doing anything is to have a ridiculous deadline. We booked the flights home without really think about the consequences and thus had no choice! It was a little like “The Keystone Kops Go Publishing”.
However, it is great fun to amaze people – and we’re pretty happy with the result…
We are now in Dubai. I will be lunching in Paris. Mr Tremayne will be lunching in Newcastle.
