Just watching the news and see that some chap called Hamilton has won something or other connected to motorsport in Instanbul. Am I the only one who has totally lost interest in these Grand Prix processions. Maybe I'm getting old, but it just doesn't hold my interest any more. Most of the drivers are no longer 'characters' like back in the days of folks like Jim Clark, Jochen Rindt, Lorenzo Bandini, Bruce McLaren, Graham Hill, etc. etc. Ah! Yes it's that old nostalgia again ........... back when I was a lad they still had events like the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio ............ And as for Istanbul - back when I were a lad my Geography teacher still had Constantinople on the map hanging on the wall. Of course he was perhaps old enough to have remembered it as Byzantium, when they had chariot races.
