Today, 20 April, is the birthday of Phil Hill. He was born on this day in 1927 in Miami. He grew up in Santa Monica, California. He went on to be the first American to win the F1 World Drivers Championship. He also won the 24 Hours of Le Mans 3 times.
After racing, he became a great automotive journalist, writing for Road & Track magazine for many years. He also was a well known restorer & collector of classic sporting cars.
He did triple duty in the great racing film Grand Prix. He played American driver Tim Randolph, drove the Ford GT camera car & did the actual on-screen driving for Brian Bedford's character Scott Stoddard.
We lost Phil in 2008. He was one of the major reasons that I became a life long Formula 1 fan. I'm sure it's the same for many other Americans.
Happy birthday, Phil. Thanks for everything.
Here's a 1975 biography of him:

I'm sure you are all aware of the Billy Monger F4 crash in the UK which was quite horrific and as a result the 17 year old has had both legs amputated and put into a medical coma.
I hope you will join me in wishing Billy a speedy recovery and hopefully he'll take inspiration from Alex Zanardi.
There is Crowdfunding for Billy which has exceeded its target and if you wish to contribute the link is below.

Force India team owner Vijay Mallya has been arrested today in the U.K. London’s Metropolitan Police said its extradition unit had arrested Mr. Mallya “on behalf of the Indian authorities in relation to accusations of fraud.” Mr. Mallya was scheduled to appear at a London court on Tuesday.
Just prior to that, he had been tweeting about Alfonso Celis returning to the team.

Little Maxie V may have pick the wrong person to run his mouth about.
One of the Max whines from Bahrain was that Massa spoiled his quali. "He is Brazilian, so there is not much to talk about."
It looks like Felipe didn't get the memo that Max is the new Golden Boy:
"I told him: 'Be careful with what you say because you still need to go to Brazil to race there. Be careful what you say.'
"For sure, it's wasn't right to talk about Brazilians without knowing what he's talking about," Massa told UOL Esporte.
"I didn't even stop him. Maybe I was the scapegoat because he couldn't get ahead of his teammate, so someone had to be to blame.
"It was the same between me and Hulkenberg, but did you see one complaining about the other?"
I wonder if we'll see a NASCAR style dust up between them if Maxie keeps his mouth in gear.
