Would I like to have breakfast with Jackie Stewart? Is the Pope catholic?
JYS might be coming up to 69, he might have retired 35 years ago, but he's got a sharp mind and his take on matters of the moment is always interesting. And so it was in Melbourne.
I was a big fan of Jackie when I was 10, but I have to admit to being slightly surprised when a copy of JYS's autobiography popped through the letterbox just before Christmas. At the time when there were no less than eight books on Lewis Hamilton doing the rounds, I wondered if the publishers hadn't missed their slot a little with JYS.
Silly me. Jackie is doing book tours in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar. In the UK he did 96 events in 41 locations in 14 days. And has sold just over 200,000 copies of his book. So that's put that one to bed.
