WATCH: The A-Z of sim-racing driver excuses!

We’ve all been there. You had a sim race, and things don’t work out. Maybe you are way off the pace, or maybe you crash out on a corner that should be straightforward. You are left with a difficult decision to make. Tell a poorly constructed lie that is likely to be exposed… Or tell a really good lie!

Real-world motorsport drivers love a good excuse – they have sponsors to appease, so surely it cannot be their fault, right? But these expressions have transmogrified their way into the virtual realm too.

Here’s a guide to the best racing driver excuses you can use when you let your team down, or when you just want to save face. All in a handy A-Z format, from Aliens to Zero Talent. After all, I speak from experience.
