We’ve also heard that a friend of Richard’s F1 – former Grand Prix and Le Mans driver David Hobbs – will be joining Lewis Hamilton as one of the many voices on Disney Pixar’s animated feature, Cars 2.
Hobbs raced in F1 in the 1960s, but was much better known for his sports car racing and work as a commentator in the United States, where he now lives.
