yeah..... Thing is, Renault refused to let Alphanso go to McLaren early saying that he need to fulfill some contractual obligations.

So, McLaren also refuse to let Kimi go to Ferrari early.

And till he joins Ferrari, he will be advertising with McLaren

its down for the Johnnie Walker Race Day at Mahalaxmi Race course.
its been bought down by Diageo, as they want to promote the Race Day big time and make it memorable,somethin along the lines of Poonawalla Breeders Million and UB group sponsered race days.

Apparently the insuarnce for the car cost Diageo 15 lakhs as the car is scheduled to go to various cities.....cost of transportation..40 lakhs..

naaah....correction not needed.

I was actually being polite to Alphanso. Under normal circumstances, I would have typed "Fernando Crybaby Alphanso"

Anyway, the thread title has been changed...for the better Thanks Mod !!

Alonso is allowed to test with Mclaren, but the car is to have no sponsor logos, he is to wear plain overalls and a white helmet. New boy Lewis Hamilton has gone faster than him on the last day testing at Jerez. Kimi did make an apperance at the Ferrai pits (dont remember where) to have a look and talk to the engineers.

How come no one is discussing this interesting piece of information that accompanied the picture ?!
We're gonna have a race track in Navi Mumbai ??!!

"WIAA Officials refused to say why the car was in the City,But sources said tat with an F1 Track Proposed off Navi Mumbai and WIAA being a member of FIA,its likely that the car is here for promotional purposes.
