Say what you want about him but the Special One is a tittle that is definitely fitting to this man. José Mário dos Santos Mourinho Félix started off as a young translator to Sir Bobby Robson where he learnt the game. He is such a smart man to take the path that he did..

Hope that the organizers move the race back to the original 2pm time slot which will give the race more hope of survival if the rain decides to hit. I understand that the slot was moved to accommodate the European audience but then again, i think that if the European’s want to watch the race, they will get up a couple of hours earlier like the rest of the world does to when they need to watch a sporting event at a different time zone.
