It’s been a busy week in F1.

Not entirely unlike a pop star, then. One can only hope Simon Cowell doesn’t become involved in young Lewis’ career, though.
But that was far from the only news in the world of F1 this week. Follow the jump for the rest of the news, as well as a full gallery of the MP4-24.+Continue Reading
