Man refuses to allow 'crying child' have the final F1 test ride of the day ahead of him

A little girl was left in tears, after a guy ahead of her in a queue took the last go on a Formula One simulator, after refusing to swap places with her.
You're probably fed up of reading about people who refused to give up their seat on a plane journey so a family can sit together, or some other nonsense, but we're interested when there's a sporting twist.
The latest Formula One season kicks off this weekend and, as usual, there will be those who find the whole thing boring and claim it's not a sport.
After all, it is just like going for a drive, which is easy. The closest most people will get to testing if they could do it is on a simulator, which you could pop down to the F1 Arcade to have a go on if you're in London.
One little girl thought she was going to get a chance to test her skills, but there was only time for one more go, and the man ahead of her refused to swap places, as you can see in the video below.
The new season of F1 will no doubt bring the same controversy and drama that usually comes on and off the track, kicking off in Bahrain, with qualifying on Saturday.
World champion Max Verstappen has already caused come controversy, as his want, when the Red Bull driver was asked to pick a dream driver pairing.
You might not be THAT surprised to hear that the Dutchman didn't pick long time rival Lewis Hamilton, however he even failed to pick his own teammate.
Rather than go for Sergio Perez, Verstappen went with a pairing of Lando Norris and Fernando Alonso, which would be great to see in fairness.
But it comes after the two Red Bull drivers had a bit of a falling out at the end of last season, after the world champion failed to get out of the way for his teammate, who was still battling to finish higher up in the drivers' championship, even though Max had already been crowned champ.
Mercedes were not fully on pace at testing last week, although no one can be quite sure what set ups everyone was running, a tough season last year.
Hamilton failed to win a race all season, for the first time in his career, and he could risk the chance of winning one at some point in the upcoming campaign.
The FIA have tried to ban drivers doing 'political protests' during race weekends, with the seven time world champion the most vocal driver on issues such as racism and LGBTQIA+ issues.
Hamilton has already confirmed that he's willing to ignore that ban and stand up for the issues that he believes in, an extremely respectable stance to take.
