Some people are very relaxed on the grid with a drink in their hand!
Watching the Grand Prix this morning made me homesick!
This photograph is of me on the Silverstone starting grid for the 1991 British Grand Prix, with Alain Prost behind me, getting into his Ferrari.
p.s. – I think that Simon or Yasmin Lebon took the photo.
“The Santander circuit, which has been created as a CGI video, takes in many of London’s famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament. The start/finish straight and the pits would be on the Mall.” – Autosport
Can you recognize the streets?

This is a really really nice Ferrari 599 GTB.
Last week I had a chance to drive it briefly on about 1 mile of very smooth and gently curving black top.
Bragging that i had been driven around Brands Hatch by Jackie Stewart caused my host to select “Race” mode on the steering wheel.
On my first try with the gear paddles, while changing to 2nd gear, I hit the window washers!
This car has unbelievable acceleration and braking! It felt like a rocket! I had to feather the throttle pedal and the brake pedal, they were ultra sensitive.
On my way back to the office I managed to give it a bit of a blast and accelerated up to 3rd gear before doing some very hard braking with a pounding heart!
I love the reverse button!
And the feeling lasted for most of the rest of the day! Thanks for that!
