David Bowie Is, George Lucas, Red Bull to Ferrari with Sebastian Vettel at the Australian Grand Prix

 

George Lucas, Dani, Dietrich Mateschitz owner Red Bull

The David Bowie Is exhibit is currently in Paris.  It will move to Melbourne  in July the city that also hosts the opening of the 2015 Formula One season the Australian Grand Prix. George Lucas executive produced the film in which David Bowie stars, ‘Labyrinth’.  So what connects George Lucas, Dietrich Mateschitz, Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari?  a band the Rolling Stones, and Ferrari.

When I took the above photograph in Monaco at the Monaco Grand Prix,  the team of people who at the time worked for Lucas, had invited me to the Stars Wars party, and I was keen to meet a fellow Canadian actor Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader) and at the time I also owned an Energy Drinks Company.  After the party Lucas’s assistant want to call for a taxi to go to her hotel and I offered to drive her the car having been delivered directly to the hotel.  Try getting a taxi in Monaco during the Grand Prix weekend, you will wait forever, and with me taking her she would have the added bonus of my commentary on the street  track on Monte Carlo.

As we walked out the door man raced to an awaiting Ferrari and opened the door for her. Lucas’s assistant looked at me a little amused, “that’s your car?”, “Yea, I just got it today, I don’t even know who to start it yet”, I told her ( which was true as I had to ask the valet).  When we got in the Ferrari the varoom start that is associated with a Ferrari was heard then again you hear that all the time in Monaco.  I managed to get the small lights on, but had no idea how to turn on the headlight.  I informed my passenger we will be alright as the car had Monaco plates they the police will give us a pass.  It was during this drive that Lucas’s assistant informed me of his passion for Ferrari, as in his youth Lucas wanted to be a race car driver.

Few months later I would invite Lucas and few others to the Rolling Stones show in San Francisco and it was there I was to learn how much Lucas loves technology, not as much understanding it, but using it to tell his story better on the big screen.  This point always registered in my brain and it has been logged.

Many years later as the Rolling Stones are the Rolling Stones they where on tour and this time happened to be in Montreal at the time of the Canadian Grand Prix.  Red Bull Racing’s , Sebastian Vettel won the race.  As I gave my friends the tour of the paddocks after the race and pit lane, I saw Vettel and wanted to see if he wanted to come to the show that evening. Vettel introduced me to his assistant, and asked if he could get his team into the show.  Naturally I told him he had nothing to worry about all would be taken care off.  The Rolling Stones made it happen the reason they are the Rolling Stones is that they also have a first class team around them, and their relationship with David Bowie is infamous.

Few months later the Rolling Stones on tour tragedy struck as Mick Jagger’s girlfriend of many years  L’Wren Scott killed herself.  Allowing a respectful time to pass, I thought it maybe a great idea to lift Mick Jagger’s spirits by having Sebastian Vettel Formula One world champion present Jagger a Jarrell autographed guitar.  This time Sebastian Vettel obliged, his way of show support and saying thank you for the time all of Red Bull racing came to see the Rolling Stones in Montreal.  The guitar is made by Jarrell guitars who after discovering that Sebstain Vettel also plays guitar presented him with a guitar as well.  It is also a guitar that Bowie film has used with one kindly offered by the man himself to take on a world tour allowing people to hold it the gold Jarrell Bowie guitar.   Shortly afterwards the news hit the media that Sebastian Vettel was leaving Red Bull Racing and moving to Ferrari.

Today in Melbourne we come full circle with David Bowie film, Lucas and his love for Ferrari and Vettel his dream to drive for Ferrari.  The fun is only beginning as the season is just starting.  If you are Italian or a Ferrari lover like Lucas and myself we will all have something to cheer about.  Italian chef Alberto Annarumma who is excited about Ferrari and David Bowie film and holding the guitar which is on a world tour even created a David Bowie Menu to delight your sence.

Check out the Ferrari I gave Lucas assistant a spin in, and some of the images of things evolved and unfolded up to today’s race in Melbourne.

Josef Newgarden ready to rock’n roll and his team Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing – Honda Indy Toronto

2014-07-19 12.39.27

Josef Newgarden racing for Sarah Fisher Hartman racing is totally a rockstar. I felt it in my gut, this dude is going to be a star. What really hit me was how much Josef Newgarden looks like a young David Bowie.

On December 7, 2011, Newgarden was announced as the driver for Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing. He ran his first full season schedule in an Indycar in 2012. Currently, he is competing in his third full season and it has been a thrill of a ride and it’s been all rock’n and roll at Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing.

As in the case with any band such as The Rolling Stones, or if you talk about Adam Lambert and Queen it’s all about the full team. Mick Jagger without, Ronnie, Keith, Charlie it just does not work. Newgarden rocked it in the garage with the David Bowie Jarrell guitar with his band his crew.

Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton Boy’s Of Monaco Battle It Out – Monaco Grand Prix

Rosberg_2921180b.jpg (620×387)
Monaco Grand Prix 2014

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.
