ALPINESTARS have added the Joey WP casual shoes to their collection. They're not billed as safety-wear but the suede outer has been wax-treated to make them more waterproof. Ok, so they're not CE-certified boots, but I'd be happy to buzz around in a pair - they're safer than trai...

the paddock by bringing in a sense of humour. If he seriously wanted to race F1 I’m sure his desire and dedication would see him succeed, but I don’t think he should do it, it would be a backwards step. The atmosphere in the F1 paddock is different
