With all the media buzz surrounding the first Singapore’s Formula One (F1) race that is slated to roll next year, the whole world will be anticipating for this premier event.
Not only will it be the first F1 race to be held in Singapore, this would also be the first time these sophisticated race cars will be pitting each other in the night.
F1 Grand Prix Cars
The highlight of the F1 race are indefinitely those beautiful fast cars.
But though some might argue that the entourage of beautiful girls are also the main draw. Ha ha…
Back to the cars. These cars are built with cutting edge technology that enables them to produce an unprecedented combination of outright speed and quickness for the drivers.
According to Wikipedia, “every F1 car on the grid is capable of going from 0 to 160 km/h and back to 0 in less than five seconds.”
The pit-stop in a race
In a race, as fast as these cars may be, the pit-stop plays an important factor in winning a race. Cars need to visit the pit-stop primarily for refuelling and changeing of tires.
Without a proper pit-stop strategy where planned pit-stops are scheduled during the race- taking into account factors such as rate of fuel consumption, weight of fuel, cornering speed with each available tire compound, rate of tire wear, the effect of tire wear on cornering speed, the length of pit road and the track’s pit road speed limit, and even expected changes in weather and lighting conditions- this would greatly affect the chances of winning a race.
Imagine if the tires wears off or the shortage of fuel while driving, the car might skid of the track or get cut off from the race.
Having a pit-stop strategy
Like these cars in the F1 Race, we too are in a race called LIFE with our walk with God. Like these cars, we too go pretty much at a fast pace in order to reach our goals and excel or maybe to meet the demands and expectations.
However, do we adopt a “pit-stop strategy” in our own lives?
If we’re feeling drained and tired or bogged down with unforgiveness or hurts, don’t forget to visit your “pit-stop” for His refreshment for our souls and alignment of our hearts with His will.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest~ Matthew 11:28
A planned “pit-stop strategy” might just what we need to keep on track and to keep us going till the end of the race.
God is our sustenance.
