You may notice that a number of my posts features the Mercedes, the collaboration of Mercedes and McLaren and of course my dream supercar of the moment, the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR. So my fascination with Mercedes is out in the open! I realized that talking about Mercedes, and then McLaren will not be complete without discussing the racing tradition of McLaren. So this is the reason why I am making this first blog post about team McLaren-Mercedes of Formula 1, perhaps a more appropriate time since the racing season has begun. The team features Hamilton and Kovalainen as its drivers. Though I don’t religiously follow the race on ESPN since I am glued to tennis whenever its available, I’ll try to make it a point to catch some of the races on cable, even though its a replay. So from now on, some F1 news and views will fill my site so bear with me.
