ex-F1 drivers at Le Mans

This year's "24hrs du LeMans" event falls on the same day as the F1 Grand prix in Canada, Montreal. However there will some F1 presence at Le Mans with the likes of Alex Wurz, Anthony Davidson, Nigel Mansell and Sebastian Bourdais in different teams entered in this year's 24hour endurance race.

Peogeot won in 2009, putting an end to Tom Kristensen's and Audi's campaign to win their ninth consecutive title. But both teams will be back stronger this year, and it promises to be a fantastic spectacle.

Lewis wins Turkey Grand Prix!

What an exhilarating race! It looked like it would be RedBull dominating the race all the way, until a "coming together" of both RB drivers. This gave Lewis Hamilton his chance of victory which he wasn't ready to relinquish easily.

Although he must have had the shock of his life when he saw a silver car in similar livery as his, shoot past him. "I thought we were both conserving our fuel", he must have thought. But sure enough, he did what he does best - and overtook his team-mate to reclaim the lead and held onto it till the end.

Brilliant drive as always, and this surely goes some way to compensate for his loss on the penultimate lap of the Spanish Grand Prix when his tyre exploded.

Winners' week?

With the finale of Dancing with the Stars seeing Nicole Scherzinger being crowned the winner on Tuesday night, could this her boyfriend's lucky week too? F1 drivers are in Istanbul, Turkey for the Turkish Grand Prix this weekend and the signs are encouraging for Mr Hamilton; he qualified second on Saturday - his first time on the front row of the grid this year. Perhaps it will be a double celebration for Scherzinger & Hamilton by Sunday evening.

Monaco Grand Prix

I am looking forward to watching the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday 16th May. It was nice to have 2 races on 2 consecutive weekends; minimises the 'withdrawal symptoms'.

I just hope that some day - in the near future - I can afford to attend this prestigious and glam-fest of an event.


This is a test....
