    2 things here:

    1- I really want a Paella now!!!!

    2- Heikki’s sunglasses are just ghastly!

    I take it Hamilton couldn’t be trusted to look after one of those expensive go karts?

      Remember – they are in Spain – not quite the center of Lewis’ fan base. And obviously, the couldn’t send out Pedro alone, so Jenson probably drew the short straw.

    Look how happy Jarno is! Could it be that the power steering is finaly fixed :P

      Fingers crossed! It’s a while he wasn’t so enthusiastic! Hopefully his Lotus won’t be used as a launch pad like his team mate’s was last year!

    De La Rosa has really increased in popularity since driving in Canada – first he drives karts alongside Button where Hamilton is not, then he also slightly edited his helmet design on top…

      He got alot of press in Canada. Alot was made of him wearing McLaren overalls while driving the Sauber. So I think McLaren and/or McLarens sponsors are cashing in by giving him more coverage and face time in case it happens again. I also think I read somewhere that Sauber said they would probably use him again if a similar situation occured…can’t remeber where I read that or if it was just someones comment on here…

    • De La Rosa did that remote control thing on Spanish TV too, beating Jenson and Lewis :)

    Force India have a pretty impressive motorhome upgrade there.

    I’d never thought HRT would make my mouth water…

    I see a Honda sign on the GoKart.

    Who’d of thought that JB would be back racing in a honda so soon :-o (yes, nearly 3 years ago is ‘so soon’ )

    I actually thought who the hell is that…until I saw it was Jarno Trulli smiling!

    No Lewis on the go kart track? :(

  11. Chalky (@chalky) said on 23rd June 2011, 21:16

    I wonder who the lucky 3rd driver is in the go-karts?
    Can’t be a competition winner. Looks too pro for that with the race suit and helmet. Some local go-kart champ perhaps?

  12. Gman said on 23rd June 2011, 21:29

    Is that Alexander Rossi walking with Chandhok and Heikki? Would be awesome if that was the case!

  13. James Williams said on 24th June 2011, 8:32

    Who’s that in the other kart with Button & de la Rosa?
