No Turkey or Auld Lang Syne for Fabio

Just five days after that breathless, energy-sapping opening encounter of the season itā€™s back to work for aching bodies and high revving power units on the same piece of tarmac. For the first time in the 72-year history of Grand Prix racing, there will be back-to-back GrandsĀ Prix at the same circuit in the same season. Since then there have been back-to-back Grands Prix in the same country but not at the same circuit. The only other time I have encountered back-to-backĀ Grands PrixĀ in the same country just a week apart was back on my Formula One adventures. Next Sunday he returns to the scene of that first triumph with the prospect of becoming the first rider to win back-to-back Grands Prix at the same circuit and just the second youngest rider to win back-to-backĀ premier class races.
