Nelson Piquet’s childhood doesn’t reflect the cliched stories of any other champion before, or after him. He struggled to remain true to anything he was born into or achieved. Spening much of his teen years in Miami, Florida he flourished in tennis. With modest features, squiggly teeth and an acquired sense of humor, Nelson never epitomized athleticism. He eclipsed his own talents and lost interest in the sport before turning professional. Playing on a hard court, back and fourth clearly didn’t excite the individual, and he traded cement for tarmac and a linear sport for circles.

Canada Grand Prix Review
Coming off the back of a less than successful weekend in Monaco for Lewis Hamilton’s side of the garage, the Briton was eager to make amends for his dismal strategy in the principality. The Canadian Grand Prix is a favourite for most drivers in F1, and Lewis is definitely one of them. He took his maiden victory here, and the aggressive driving style that the track bares will be just one appendage in Lewis’s arsenal.
