GREETINGS F1W FAMILIA. …IT WAS WET AND WILD WEST HERE IN AUSTIN ON FRIDAY. RAIN AND SHINE WAS ORDER OF THE DAY FOR LEWIS HAMILTON.
Three place grid penalty for Sebastian Vettel has left the prancing horse limping even more to fight for five, as if the big point gap was not enough headache.
I had a nice chat with Davide Valsechhi, he now works for Sky Italia on their F1 coverage. We are planning to take a trip to Sicily early next year. Plan is to rent an Alfa Romeo, invite local resident and Targa Florio legend Nino Vaccarella to take a tour of the circuit.
Davide introduced me to his camera man, who hails from Monza, and he is willing to record this momentous occasion.
Let’s hope we can make this happen.
I met Johnny Herbert and asked him to say “Hee Haw” – and he did!
Enjoy the US Grand Prix.
