Being in a foreign country isn’t going to stop any Formula One fan getting their fix. But I must confess I was a bit disappointed that the fairly plush hotel I’m staying in in Mexico didn’t have satellite television. Without that, no Fox Sports and no F1.
Fortunately the tourist resort of Playa del Carmen is blessed with the sports bar Zoo (see picture) whose owner Sam very kindly opened up at the horrible hour of seven in the morning so my brother, my dad and I could watch the San Marino Grand Prix.
Many, many thanks to Sam and if any of you find yourselves in Mexico with nowhere to watch the race, head on over to Zoo. (If any of you make it over there, do send a photo in!?
