Romain Grosjean escapes high-speed crash

So glad that Romain, appears, to have escaped this horrendous crash.

Thankfully, the previously controversial “halo” seems to have saved his life. Methinks the value of this safety feature will be viewed somewhat differently from now on. Any debate about the aesthetics will now be firmly in the bin.

Hopefully, given the magnitude of the incident, Romain has, relatively, minor injuries.

I use that term advisedly, as burns and potentially broken bones are not to be sneered at.

I would also like to mention the medics and marshals who deserve our thanks and respect for their amazing response during the aftermath of this incident.

Romain is receiving treatment at hospital and I wish him well, a speedy recovery and hope we see him racing again soon.

Michael Schumacher


44 year old Michael Schumacher, multiple Formula 1 World Champion, is in a critical condition after suffering a severe head injury in a fall while skiing at a French resort yesterday.

I am hoping for a positive outcome and my thoughts are with his family at this time.

Sunday Stress


Will need to break out the Tamazapam tomorrow.

Formula 1 at Silverstone with Button and Hamilton and Tennis at Wimbledon with Murray in the final, both on tomorrow afternoon.

So many Brit sportsman to support. I’m not sure I’ll be able to stand the stress levels. Good job I have some nails to bite.
