Grand Prix International #37
19 September, 2012
Sep.19 (Grand Prix International) We mourn the passing of Professor Sid Watkins, but at the same time we salute the massive role he played in making Formula One and (by implication) motor racing in general a much safer sport. Many owe their lives to him directly or indirectly – benefactors of his efforts to ensure that race tracks around the globe adhere to safety standards of the high levels which prevail today.
We also salute the return of Robert Kubica to competition, after over a year of silence the former Lotus driver is back on the winning track.
Also in this edition we analyse the ‘Playstation generation’ of race drivers, report on three days of testing at Magny Cours, while keeping tabs on Alonso, Hamilton, Button, Domenicali, Kaltenborn, Heidfeld and of course we preview the forthcoming Singapore Grand Prix.
