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.

Well Done Pierre Gasly


Well deserved.

And what a boost for F1 with all the young guns up on the podium.

We need more races like this. Turned a typical Hamilton dominated parade into an exciting race.

Whoohoo !!!

Quote Of The Day – So Far


At todays Spanish Grand Prix, during his regular grid walk, Martin Brundle asked ” Who do you think will win the race ?”

To which Bernie Ecclestone replied “I think it will be very hard for these guys at the back to pass the guys at the front”
