As German football team starts to jell in the Euro Cup I can bet you that while Daniel Brühl is on a film set somewhere in Los Angeles he is watching his boys play. Daniel not only loves football, he loves food, his restaurant Bar Raval Berlin are world-class. While Daniel plays the bad guy in Captain America: Civil War for me a very special moment was when Daniel played world champion Formula 1 driver Niki Lauda, who like two other friends of mine drove for Ferrari. Check out Daniel in the film Rush.

It is all about team work. Today the championship can be won or lost in the pits.
It is almost showtime and everyone is ready, music is key to all drivers and here is just a few beats from The Shakin’ Jamaican’s new album ‘Spaceman Bubble’ .
The multi-talented Sean Brosnan veins carry blood that is Irish and Australian that being from his father Pierce Brosnan (Irish) and his mother Cassandra Harris (Australian) who died in 1991 after a 4-year battle with ovarian cancer. Sean Brosnan with his fiancé Sanja Banic both filmmakers and partners of Knight Marcher Films came to spin their own magic with Red Bull Racing resulting in the first win by the Australian driver born in Perth, Daniel Ricciardo.
Daniel Ricciardo passed series leader Nico Rosberg with two laps to go and held on for his first Formula One victory in a wild Canadian Grand Prix and Sean and Sanja got a real up close look at it all from start to finish.
Ricciardo the 24-year-old became the first non-Mercedes driver to win in seven races this season, although even he admitted there was luck involved (Sean and Sanja maybe) and that it is too early to say that Red Bull is back as a championship contender.
“Obviously Mercedes had their issues and that enabled us to close on them,” a giddy and still disbelieving Ricciardo said after the race. “It’s a bit surreal. Really cool.”
The Aussie driver remembered to save some champagne from the post-race podium celebration to spray on his race engineer, Toronto native Gavin Ward.
Rosberg finished second despite engine and brake problems, while the second Red Bull driven by four-time world champion and defending Canadian Grand Prix winner Sebastian Vettel came in third.
The race ended under a caution flag after a spectacular crash involving Sergio Perez’s Force India car and Felipe Massa’s Williams. They narrowly missed taking Vettel out.
Sean and Sanja are used to hollywood action but in Montreal at the Canadian Grand Prix who could have predicted the ending of the race, and they loved every moment, soon afterwards heading back to Ottawa and to a movie set. Both Sean and Sanja agree “F1 Rocks”.
At last, the rivalry which will define this Formula One season has exploded in spectacular fashion. After all the niceties, the politeness, and the mutual backslapping between these two long-time friends, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg’s private duel for the world championship took a hugely bitter turn after the German controversially secured pole position for the Monaco Grand Prix.
Asked if Rosberg intentionally ruined his final effort by going off the track, bringing out the yellow flags as Hamilton tore around Monte Carlo’s streets, the Briton replied: “Potentially”. He also cryptically said of the incident: “I should have known that was going to happen.”
Tensions were running so high that the 29-year-old even hinted that he may resort to drastic measures and drive Rosberg off the road in the race itself.

While he stopped short of categorically branding Rosberg a cheat, his facial expressions and strained body language told the story.
If you think Formula One in Monaco was not rocking it was because F1Rocks. From the Amber Lounge to the cool fashion shop Eleven Monte Carlo it was rocking with guitars. As the boy’s of Monaco raced the streets of Monte Carlo, The Rolling Stones were doing sound check in Oslo, what makes more noise asked the Fairmont Monte Carlo host to the cool guitars of Phillip Jarrell? Me thinks it’s the guitars in the hands of the Rolling Stones.
