If this season was a meal, the race in Australia was merely you wiping your feet on the mat before entering the restaurant, by the end of this emphatic race, it proved to be the amuse bouche.

But once I returned home (through the sludge…snow is depressing once it’s walked on don’t you think?) I found the first sign of spring… FIA announce provisional 2011 entry list: … Continue reading
