“It was racing and that’s what we’re all here for. There were a few times where it got pretty close. There are things you should and shouldn’t do but this is racing and at the end of the day I don’t think it changed our result too much.”
“Rajya Sabha member and chief of ailing Kingfisher airline Vijay Mallya, top industrialists and Lok Sabha member Vivekananda Kadam and those who figure in the list of names exposed by a global media investigative operation are being probed for alleged tax evasion.”
Just finished testing in China, am now going on to Bahrain. The SIM is pretty special, hard to make it realistic but work in progress

Comment of the day
Clark was best. Almost never do I utter or type such words, but Clark was best. On the race track and off there are seldom a better race car driver or gentleman. Jim Clark is the reason I became interested in Formula One.
As a young boy in America who followed the Indy 500 every year I became fascinated with Jim Clark and interested in what other races he drove in. Viewing F1 then was usually done some time after the race in the form of highlights.
Still became fascinated with F1 and over the years viewing got better. Would I be a fan of F1 had it not been for the accomplishments of the likes of Jim Clark, Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney and others with their race anywhere anytime attitudes? Who knows. 45 years later I still thank you, Jim Clark. Clark was best.
