Can it really be 15 years since George Best passed away? Yes, it can be & it is: he died on 25 November 2005. I met him twice & reunited him with an old E-Type Jag of his for this @CandSCmagazine feature. A petrolhead as well as a football genius, he owned 6 E-Types in all. #RIP https://t.co/js7EpKdd9d

Remembering McLaren stalwart Peter Stayner, who passed away #OnThisDay in 2016. Truly, he was one of the nicest people I've ever worked with, any time, any place, anywhere: not only a gentleman but also that even rarer thing, a gentle man. #RIP https://t.co/9bZsZLY9TA

#HappyBirthday Karl Edward Tommy (aka Slim) Borgudd, 74, one-time jazz drummer, mate of Björn Ulvæus, & therefore sponsored by #Abba in #F1 (pic: ’81 ATS HGS1). The winner takes it all, sang Abba, but Borgudd started only 10 GPs, his best result 6th at Silverstone in ’81. https://t.co/NWYLiXiK0d

#OnThisDay in 2018 Fernando Alonso started his 311th championship #F1 GP. He didn't race in F1 in 2019 & he isn't racing in F1 this year either. But in 2021 he'll return to F1. Do you think his decision is the right one?

#OnThisDay in 2012, at Interlagos, McLaren won an #F1 race for the 182nd & most recent time - but at Monza 10 weeks ago Carlos Sainz came within 0.415sec of scoring a historic 183rd GP win for the marque. The 2012 #BrazilGP was also the 15th & last GP win for Jenson Button (pic). https://t.co/J0ICNQ9tPH

Would you like it if Formula 1 had women drivers in the grid?

psa if youre a shit talking director make sure to mute ur shit on zoom mtgings https://t.co/PTgMZcRhEw

A lesson for all of us: be careful with Zoom muting. Alternatively, just be nice. https://t.co/7VsHA97UfE

If you’d told me then that Lewis Hamilton would beat Ron Dennis to a knighthood, I’d have laughed in your face. But sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. #StillIRise, Sir Lewis. (2/2) https://t.co/79xFAAzQrN

#OnThisDay in 2006 McLaren announced Lewis Hamilton as a 2007 #F1 driver. “Lewis is going to find it tough in the first few races,” said Ron Dennis. “This will be a challenge & I know there’ll be a lot of attention on me,” said Hamilton. I think you came thru OK, champ.(1/2) https://t.co/naDmiEjSW7

The 2013 #BrazilGP was also the last #F1 GP for the naturally aspirated 2.4-litre V8s introduced in 2006; they were replaced in 2014 with the turbocharged 1.6-litre V6s, with energy recovery systems, still in use today. Pic (for fun): a proper F1 engine ('68 Matra V12). (2/2) https://t.co/xeLIaON2Mw

#OnThisDay in 2013 Vettel (Red Bull; pic) won the #BrazilGP - his 9th consecutive #F1 GP win - finishing the season a chasmic 155 points ahead of 2nd-placed Alonso (Ferrari). The race was the last F1 GP for Webber (Red Bull), who finished it 2nd, & Kovalainen (Lotus; 14th). (1/2) https://t.co/Zz7ssfigwF

I’m looking forward to watching #UKChampionship #Snooker on #Eurosport this week. I reckon Mark Williams’ new beard makes him look like Sophocles, whose plays won 24 dramatic competitions 2400 years ago. Willo has won just 22 ranking competitions, but he started a little later. https://t.co/Qg6gskvWT9

That’s *not* supposed to happen 😬...#MacauGP https://t.co/jsw25aMjqv

Had a similar situation in F1 approaching Eau Rouge once🤦‍♂️😅Luckily the steering-wheel went in at my first attempt, otherwise I would not be tweeting, that is for sure!🙏 https://t.co/M3rcrEvuQM

I thoroughly recommend my dear friend Sophia Rainbow Haddad’s beautiful short story in the new anthology #VDAnthologyVolume2, written in her inimitably stark yet lyrical prose. Oh & don’t worry: ‘VD’ stands for ‘verbal discharge’. The book is available via Amazon for just £2.99. https://t.co/AYK2kafPw1

I've just been interviewed by @AGoldschmidt77 of @DownforceUK on the subjects of @LewisHamilton, @WSeriesRacing, @RacingPrideHQ & my new novel #TheBoyMadeTheDifference. If you have a spare half-hour, fill yer boots (sorry about the shabby T-shirt!). https://t.co/RJzHwk6Kxn

The Rover SD1 Vitesse was & remains a handsome road car. I've always fancied one, but I've never owned one, put off if I'm honest by horror stories of dreadful British Leyland build quality. One day maybe... (3/3) https://t.co/SjtIeuUgmS

The Rover SD1 Vitesse was also a successful touring car, fast, handsome & brutish, driven to #BTCC championship success in '84 by Andy Rouse (pic), his 3rd of 4 triumphs in the series. It was an #ETCC winner in the hands of Tom Walkinshaw & Win Percy the following year too. (2/3) https://t.co/kcYGeknOPS

I rarely post tweets about rallying, but the late Tony Pond would have turned 75 today, & he rallied one of my favourite British cars of the '70s & '80s, the Rover SD1 Vitesse, so here's Pond giving an SD1 Vitesse the beans en route to 5th on the '85 #ScottishRally. #RIP (1/3) https://t.co/hwKtw5cLhR
