So the Russian GP is planning to go ahead at the end of the year, so Infiniti took Sebastian Vettel and had him do an onboard lap in a road car. It’s not the most exciting looking layout if I’m honest.
Some sectors remind me of the Korean and Abu-Dhabi track, which frankly were flat, like most modern Tilke-circuits.

PS: Lewis can do 80 to 90 push ups? I can do like 30 now before I get tired…
Darren Heath has been taking photography of Formula One for thirteen years. You’ve probably seen his work in several magazines and online publications, and never even known that it was his. He’s won multiple awards because of his shots.

If there are two things that we love here at Starting Grid, it’s karting and Formula 1. (Even when I moan endlessly about the ugly F1 cars and the rule changes…Even then.)

Watching Aryton’s Senna’s first test in a Formula 1 car. Testing for Williams, Mclaren and Toleman. Senna had only started gracing the world of Formula 1, and the hearts of racers for generations.
