Published by Christine

The past week has been full of bank holidays in the UK, which has somehow made it seem longer despite the short working weeks. With big weddings, and small demonstrations dominating the news, the teams have been busy getting ready for the next Grand Prix in Turkey.

Thanks for all the good wishes! The most important thing is to keep the best Ayrton left for us always!! His best memories are what I keep.

7. Nico Rosberg tests his hand at another form of driving.

Awesome stuff to drive DTM car albeit being an old 2003 version. I was absolutely flat out with the passengers on board.
