Rodrigo Santoro Confirms He?s Developing an Ayrton Senna Biopic; Film Would Be Made in Conjunction with Senna?s Family (Collider)

“The biopic is most likely still a few years away (if it ever comes to fruition), but it?s nice to know that it?s being developed with a great deal of respect and caution.”

“Villeneuve pure momentum, Fernando the best of all” (Ferrari)

Luca di Montezemolo: “Villeneuve was amazing in terms of momentum. But then, his temperament would cost him points and that would affect his standing at the end of the season. Alonso, especially in the races, is the best driver in the world.”

Gilles ?ǣ in the mould of Nuvolari (Peter Windsor)

“Most of all, though, I shall miss seeing Gilles drive. So long as Gilles was practising, or was still in the race, there was always someone to watch, someone to laud. Sure, he was over the top sometimes. For every mistake, though, he would drive the next few laps sublimely.”

Montezemolo: Spain crucial for Ferrari (Autosport)

“What I want is a more competitive car in Spain, and then we can go for it this season. This is what I’ve asked because we have a nice development program beyond Spain.”

McLaren try out higher nose (Sky)

“Pictures have emerged suggesting that McLaren ran a higher nose design during the Mugello test.”

Comment of the day

Nige.B was at Zolder in 1982:

I went to this race, on the Sunday only but I can remember quite clearly sitting on the coach and the courier announcing that Gilles had died. The whole atmosphere changed on the coach to a very sombre mood. A great driver and a great loss to motorsport. Very sad.
