We all know by now that Christian Horner starting whining like his car engines after the race. Hey man get your game together and man-up. When Lewis Hamilton was told about the drama, of reining in Mercedes Formula One cars this was his point of view.

“I was sitting next to Sebastian [Vettel] after the race and I said: ‘Sebastian, you did this for four years. You were 30 seconds ahead for four years.’ So I know what it feels like,” said the world champion. “Back then he had no one behind pushing him. At least I’ve got my team-mate, who I was really racing. I don’t remember that ever being the case [with Red Bull].”

Canadian Grand Prix 2014 – Through The ‘Golden Eye’ of Sean Brosnan and fiancé Sanja Banic

%21B8QjHWQCWk%7E%24%28KGrHqYOKigEzS-1wQZ9BM2gY16W%2Bg%7E%7E_12.jpg (658×1000) 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”.

Four-time champion Sebastian Vettel has admitted to having a ruthless streak when he gets behind the wheel of a Formula One car. While Lewis Hamilton does not think he will be able to pull off a repeat of last year’s US Grand Prix and beat Sebastian Vettel to victory on Sunday. Sergio Perez of Mexico got two day notice from McLaren that they will replace him next year came as a shock. Then the gossip about the the boss of Formula One and his legal problems fills the paddock.

Against the backdrop of this drama at United States Grand Prix 2013, learning how many girls enjoy trying on lingerie especially during the taping of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 a day before, in Austin, Texas the David Bowie Is Around The World film documentary let girls just have fun. Some of the girls will be on the grid as gird girls for the race on Sunday. Each girl got bag full of lingerie, four girls all filmmakers in Austin directed the unscripted documentary film allowing the girls to do whatever they wanted to the music of David Bowie. Where were some of the formula one drivers on Thursday night of filming? you will just have to wait till the three year film project is completed.

Best quote of the day; Sebastian Vettel said it was important to be ruthless at times and also quoted the late great formula one driver Ayrton Senna by saying “if you see a gap you have to go for it”. It’s what the girls did last night they just went for it. Who would have thought that music of David Bowie could make you go wild, or could it have been bag full of lingerie.

Sebastian Vettel Wins At Home In Germany F1 2013

Sebastian VettelThree-time defending Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel surged to the lead in his Red Bull at the start of the German Grand Prix on Sunday and held off a strong challenge from the two Lotus cars to win his first race on home soil.

There were no tyre blowouts but the race had its share of bizarre incidents, with a loose wheel flying through the air in the pit lane and an abandoned car drifting on its own down the track as if wanting to get off the track all on it’s own.
Vettel started second behind pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton and powered past the Mercedes driver into the first bend.
“That was a tough one,” Vettel said as he whooped in delight over the team radio on the slowing down lap.
It was Vettel’s first victory in his home race and the 30th of his career.
“Unbelievable, I’m very happy,” said Vettel. “Kimi was pushing very hard in the race, they tried to do something different with different compound tyres.
“I was pushing really hard throughout and very happy to finally win in Germany.
“I could feel him coming with more and more pressure. I had some laps when Romain was very close.

Tragic Death In Montreal At The Canadian Grand Prix 2013

 Esteban Gutiérrez's Sauber at the end of the Canadian Grand PrixSinger songwriter NJ Taylor with Sam Wong stand as the Sauber of the Mexican rookie Esteban Gutiérrez is carried by the crane under which a Marshall fell and died earlier in the day, at the Canadian Grand Prix 2013.

Sebastian Vettel has led the formula one drivers in paying tribute to a Canadian Grand Prix marshal who died after being run over by a mobile crane during Sunday’s race in Montreal.

“The work of marshals is not always seen but it is vital to our sport and without their commitment, time and dedication, there would be no motor sport,”

– the world champion and Red Bull’s race winner said on his website on Monday.

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) said in a statement that the track worker had dropped his radio and attempted to pick it up. In doing so, he stumbled and was hit and run over by the recovery vehicle.IMG_5804

The marshal was the third to die at a grand prix since the turn of the century but the first since Graham Beveridge was killed by a loose tyre that flew through a gap in the safety fence at the 2001 Australian Grand Prix.

An Italian fire marshal, Paolo Ghislimberti, died when he was hit by a wheel at the 2000 Italian Grand Prix at Monza, prompting a review of safety at race tracks and the introduction of improved measures to protect circuit workers.

“My dearest condolences to the family of the marshal who lost his life today, our prayers for him & his family. RIP,” Gutiérrez wrote on his Twitter account.

“Shocked & saddened by the news that a marshal who is there to keep us safe has lost his life during our race today. Rest in peace my friend,” said McLaren’s Jenson Button, winner in Canada in 2011.

“Today there is nothing to celebrate. Terrible news arrive with the death of a marshal this race. Very sad. RIP,” added Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, the two-time world champion who was runner-up to Vettel on Sunday.
