Former grand prix driver Martin Brundle scored three top eight finishes on his racing return in Formula Palmer Audi at Spa-Francorchamps yesterday.
The 48-year-old, who last raced professionally in 2001 at Le Mans, entered the races alongside his 17-year-old son, Alex, who is a front-runner in the championship.
Brundle finished eighth in the first of three races, two places behind his son, but improved with each outing and added seventh and sixth place finishes later in the day - beating Alex in those two races.
"I really enjoyed it," said the ITV F1 commentator. "Considering it's my first FPA race, I'm reasonably satisfied with the result. These young guys are quick."
Quite liked this story, not a bad job by Brundle running towards the front, even managing to finish ahead of his son..

Of course there are always exceptions to this, but it's a good general rule.
Give me a roof over my head, some food to eat and a fast car. That's all I need.
That's all I'll ever need.

The only true sports are motor racing and mountain climbing; everything else is just a game.

Indeed Monza. When Schumi has raced in Karts from time to time, I've wondered how the guys he's racing against feel! Perhaps if we had more mentoring we might have more intelligent approaches to the pressures of F1 - and I don't mean just the driving.
