It was the way it was sung in a 'soul style' - wholly inappropriate.

Grumpy Old Man warning.........

Fed up to the back teeth of 'strategies' and races won in the pitlane rather than on the racetrack.

I think I've had enough of Covid 19, racism, sterile circuits and meaningless races played out before empty grandstands. I will go and pull a book about Jim Clark down from my shelves ( plenty of...

If Hamilton drives a white soft top Merc then it may well be he who passed me between Towcester and Silverstone on wednesday - the car certainly went up the slip road towards the circuit from the A43.

Just a small point - Silverstone has no fixed wing capability for aircraft. Local airfields are used from which the wealthy can then be transported by road or helicopter.

TBH, the programme was not designed for pilots or enthusiasts. It was rather like a glossy coffee table book full of pretty pictures but little actual content.
