Well, what do you expect, he's Belgian.

If we'd been discussing Frenchmen, I bet you wouldn't have heard of Charles 'Asnovoice either.

Kobayashi did slightly ruin his own best qualifying by being down to 6th by the first corner. However I was mightily impressed that his suspension held up to 2 cars running over it.

Ah yes Jacques Brel, writer of that famous tome "Brel, Book and Candle" the Manchester City midfield trio from 1971.

"Brel, Book and Candle"


Now here's some really obscure motor racing ephemera. Two Siamese cats starred in the film of Bell Book & Candle, or it could possibly have been a play starring Rex Harrison that pre-dated the film by a year or two, I was too young to take in that kind of detail. The cats' names were Pyewacket & Sam, and they were magnificent creatures, it was a long time ago, but I was scratched by them, and who else on TNF has been scratched by film stars? After the film or play, the cats were bought by John Booth for his then wife, they lived next door to my childhood best friend and one-time neighbour Tony, whose family had moved to Thurlstone just outside Sheffield. John Booth was at the time the UK's largest umbrella manufacturer, anyone guessed where this is going? They were the parents of some time racing driver John 'Brolly' Booth. It's amazing the things you can learn here isn't it?

I was once thumped in the back of the neck by Gerald Summers' golden eagle Random as she stretched her wings when something spooked her. It bloody hurt too and ached for a week! So does that count? (She was something of a TV star, having been employed unsuccessfully to lure the escaped Goldie - remember him? - back to captivity.)

I think that might have been the play as I think that there was just the one cat in the film with James Stewart.

There was only one cat in the film, Jester was his name and he belonged to Lorrain D'Essen, owner of Animal Talent Scouts agency in New York many decades ago. The scene that showed Jester's abilities was when he runs down a street with his tail straight up in the air. He outlived Lorrain, who died in 1970. He was one helluva cat.

Jacques Brel (French pronunciation: [ʒak bʁɛl]; 8 April 1929 – 9 October 1978) was a Belgian singer-songwriter who composed and performed literate, thoughtful, and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following in France initially, and later throughout the world. He was widely considered a master of the modern chanson. Although he recorded most of his songs in French, he became a major influence on English-speaking songwriters and performers such as David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Marc Almond and Rod McKuen. English translations of his songs were recorded by many top performers in the United States, including Ray Charles, Judy Collins, John Denver, the Kingston Trio, Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra, Scott Walker, and Andy Williams. In French-speaking countries, Brel was also a successful actor, appearing in ten films. He also directed two films, one of which, Le Far West, was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973. Jacques Brel has sold over 25 million records worldwide, and is the third best-selling Belgian recording artist of all time.

Philistines! No prizes for naming the first and second best-selling Belgian recording artists of all time though, can we put this this little diversion to bed right here?

they sure are. But, if they are driven sideways through the Lesmos, I am inclined to forgive and forget. And if I can get onboard shots on TV, I don't even see so much of the car, and the performance is simply stunning.

This is a nostalgia forum and expressing appreciation for the present is not what one should do here - but if you've lived through the early 2000s, F1 is so much better now in many different ways, despite the sometimes artificial and questionable means that were employed to get there.

no, not nostalgia about the 2000s- both because they were not long ago and because they were nothing to be nostalgic about. I can't remember much from the 60s though, being born only towards the end of that decade. I wish I could have witnessed the racing (and the music) of the 60s and early 70s ...

back to the pictures!

He was sometimes hated by the Flemish speaking community because one or two of his songs about "the flat lands" were misconstrued as being a slight on them.
I witnessed this first hand in a Flemish bar when an unknowing English mate of mine played 5 Brel French songs in a row on the jukebox - he was invited outside & 'persuaded' not to play them any more.
