Wasn't there a report on last years thread of her on the way to Dublin and tipping the SCCM handsomely with purple notes?

The only time I've encountered her was at the BP Garage at Gatwick South filling up her Citroen Xantia with diesel at the next pump!

Ballsy comment, I assume his employer is somehow state owned and any disparaging remarks about another state owned entity wouldn't be viewed favorably.

He still managed to adorn them with praise whilst complaining. Uncharacteristic of the man to compain about anything Qatari, granted. Arsenal winning again must have rattled him.

Stefano Domenicali (current CEO of Formula 1, previously Team Principal of Ferrari and CEO of Lamborghini) on the flight back today from Las Vegas (BA274).

Presume he was there to oversee the construction of the circuit, which is due to begin in April.

Had a brief chat, very nice guy.

The construction work currently being undertaken is behind Planet Hollywood, this is where the pit stops, garages, headquarters and paddock will be. Local news stations say the work to start in April will be to the roads along the route which will need to be dug up and rebuilt.

The Strip in front of the Cosmopolitan hotel was being closed every night last week and work carried out. Earplugs were required to sleep!

Cate Blanchett on yesterdays BA172 JFK - LHR. Escorted from the lounge to the gate by special services and off first at LHR into a Heathrow VIP car. She and travelling companion were in Club, although not the mini cabin.

Rod Stewart going through the F Wing a short while ago and now in the CR. Surprised there were no Special Services staff escorting him through - he looked very unimpressed when his bag got searched. Looks every bit the rock star!
