Back when I was still a kid (which feels so long ago sometimes!), I found myself regarding one particular sportsman as a cut beyond the rest. That man was Nigel Mansell, and I detail the impact he has had on my love of Formula 1 here.

Back to School!

So, my little girl is now at school full-time! No more half days, this is where she is there all day! It’s scary to think how quickly this has come about. When we walk her to school I can’t help but notice all the kids in nursery uniform, and all I can picture is my… Read more
