I’m at the Autosport International show in Birmingham today so I won’t be able to respond to comments as much as usual.
I hope to have some articles from the show heading your way soon though and of course I’ll be Tweeting from there as well.
On the Bahrain Grand Prix website they list the 12 living former world champions they currently “expect” to appear. That includes the four who will be on the grid: Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
It also includes Sir Jack Brabham, who at 84 is the oldest living world champion, but has had health problems in recent years. It also remains to be seen whether Kimi R?â?ñikk?â?Ânen will show up following his split from F1, given his recent negative comments about the sport. He does not have a clashing World Rally Championship commitment.
Sounds like his kind of deal.
“There are some formidable opponents out there, McLaren and Ferrari will be pushing very hard to redress the balance from last year and the Brawn team emerging into Mercedes with the comeback of Michael Schumacher is going to be a very strong. We expect to be right in there and we’ve got self-confidence in our own ability but it all depends what you do not just in Bahrain but throughout the 19-race season.”
Adam from F1 Badger asked me to give a plug for their Brawn GP merchandise competition.
