Save us all the trouble said:

Just give it to Cummins & Partners now. And save us all the pain.

Formula Fun/Get F-Oned/The F1 and Only.

Surely they submitted the tender document before lunch...

I think I've cracked it said:

Want No.1 fun?

Well we've got the Formula.

Formula 1. Number one in fun.

FFS said:

Cummins. Big on promise but small on delivery.

There must be a billion better creative agencies with far greater reach to deliver on this. My bet is it goes interstate with a satellite office retaining it.

Took the puns right out of my mouth said:

No really, just give it to them. They'll pitch from their office, look out over the track blah blah blah.

Bernie Brooks Ecclestone said:

Will they be paying fair dollar, or taking the stance that because Melbourne loses a shit load of money from the grandprix, so to should the lucky agency?

no doubt we'll be in....

why cummins? said:

I think the comments awarding it to cummins&partners are a mark of respect. Through the sneering, I suspect people look at the success of cummins as some sort of bad thing. But really, cummins is not playing the game. And anyone who can see it is not, cries foul. They are a great agency. They have their own self of self.
They are writing their own rules. And you know what?They probably won't pitch for this business anyway. They probably don't have to.

Everything said:

Cummins will pitch for a chook raffle mate. Looks like you don't work there.

Woody Allen interview...
You’ve said you never read reviews of your films. Really? Never?
‘No, I never read any reviews, any place, ever. When I first started I read reviews for the first few films. United Artists would bring in the reviews. America’s a big place... The guy in New York liked the film. The guy in Chicago didn’t. The guy in Boston loved it. The guy in Philadelphia didn’t. The guy in Colorado... And I thought to myself: This is crazy. So I stopped reading reviews about 40 or 45 years ago.’

You think it’s healthier that way?
‘Yes. Look, if you’re sitting at home and reading that you’re an idiot or terrible or have no talent, you’re going to think to yourself: God, is this guy right? Maybe I have a blindspot? Or if you’re reading you’re a genius, a brilliant, brilliant comic genius, you think: Well, every decision I make has to be right because I’m a comic genius. Neither guy is right. It’s much more complicated. It’s better just to not think about yourself. Just think about the next project, nothing in the past. I have no photographs of me with movie stars. I never see any of my films after they’re finished, ever.’
