Close your eyes and take a deep breath

I didn’t think I would ever admit it after that delayed start but like everybody else I need a breather and a lie down in a darkened room  after the most incredible start to a season in the 71 year history of grand prix racing. For the last four decades I have often written and spoken about ‘The Changing of the Guard’ after the first few races of a new season.
