Nigel Mansell

The new Formula One season kicks off in Australia this weekend.

No longer is Nigel Mansell Britain's most recent Formula One champion. He has been eclipsed by Lewis Hamilton. But I have never seen Hamilton in the flesh whereas I was fortunate enough to watch Mansell a few times in the 1990s. This was one of my photos from the Luffield stand at Silverstone.

But patriotism doesn't always come into it when chosing one's favourite racing driver and Ayrton Senna (photographed exiting the pits at Silverstone) will always be one of my heroes.

  1. Oh, I would make a fantastic race car driver. :)

    Your pun was hilarious. :D

    Oh, and every time I look at the clock, I think of how you said your wife doesn't have the time to figure out how much extra time she has because your clock is fast too - and that is SO me! All the clocks here are fast, but I have forgotten which one if 5 mins, 20 mins, and so on.
