26 May 2010 12:41

Cracking day at Hethel yesterday – and a second chance to chat with Heikki Kovalainen. The first time was soon after Christmas, at Hingham, when Lotus Racing’s new factory was populated by a staff size most newsagents would deem a little tight....

Fair to say there were more laughs than tears when Sky Sports decided to flash on its yellow bar John Terry had a "suspected" broken foot. Swiftly followed by another statement saying Terry was hoping to play in Saturday's FA Cup final being...
