FIA F2: Pic of the Week (27/05)

Personality goes a long way. It’s true. It’s also true that Artem Markelov’s got a gr8 freaking personality: driving for the now-defunct RUSSIAN TIME team (currently known as UNI-Virtuosi Racing, thank God no CAPITALS this time), the Russian virtuoso – I’d like to think of […]

Reviewing Australian GP with GD, Part 2
