It’s been great to see Elin Nordegren has finally been moving on since her 2010 split with golf pro Tiger Woods. Nordegren has recently been dating coal magnate Chris Cline, although we know that it’s not for his money. Nordegren received around $100 million following her split from Tiger Woods, one of the most expensive divorce settlements of all time.

1: Life on the Limit Review


Good

Essentially a feature-length In Memoriam reel, this entertaining Formula One documentary thrills us with its whizzy editing while it traces the sport's deadly legacy. It took some 45 years after F1's inception in 1950 for proper safety guidelines to be implemented, so watching the parade of iconic drivers, living and dead, is often quite emotional. And the film tells this story with a pumping kinetic style.

Motor racing has a long history in Europe, becoming a proper sport with the birth of Formula One in 1950. But as car-building technology developed, the safety systems didn't keep pace. So drivers were racing at double the speed without up-to-date barriers, safety equipment and emergency procedures. Between 1968 and 1974 alone, the sport lost such iconic drivers as Jim Clark, Jochen Rindt, Roger Williamson, Francois Cevert and Peter Revson in terrible crashes. Over the years the regulations were changed, but it wasn't until Ayerton Senna's shocking death in 1994 that the entire system was overhauled. And no driver has been killed in an F1 Grand Prix since.

In addition to Fassbender's enthusiastic narration, the line-up of on-screen interviewees is seriously impressive, with a collection of champions, team leaders, businessmen, journalists and others recounting their memories as the film presents a chronological history of the sport. Director-editor Crowder ramps everything up as he mixes archive film and stills with thundering music to get the adrenaline pumping. Many of these sequences generate a lot of vroom-vroom energy, even if the video trickery sometimes gets too flashy. Intriguingly, the film's most riveting segment is a single take with no edits, shot from Senna's helmet as he does a qualifying lap in Monaco.

Guilty: Tamara Ecclestone Ex-Boyfriend Found Guilty Of £200,000 Blackmail Attempt


Tamara Ecclestone Bernie Ecclestone

Tamara Ecclestone’s former boyfriend has been found guilty of blackmail, the BBC reports today (February 25, 2013). Derek Rose, 33 and Tamara, now 28 dated for two years when Eccleston was a teenager. Rose has been found guilty of trying to blackmail £200,000 from the daughter of Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone, back in November 2011.

According to the report from BBC, Derek Rose tried to blackmail Tamara after she appeared in the TV reality show Billion Dollar Girl, which looked at her life as a wealthy youngster. Rose then sent an email to Tamara’s manager, Dana Malmstrom, claiming that he and Jakir Uddin, also accused, had been offered £200,000 from the press for a story about his ex-girlfriend. The ton of the email, reportedly was “you don’t really want that in the press whether it’s true or not,” the prosecutor William Boyce QC told the court. The jury also heard that Rose made £10,000 for selling his story to the press back in 2002, after his relationship with Miss Ecclestone had ended.

Tamara stated during the trial that she had merely wanted the defendant ‘warned’ and not necessarily arrested, for his actions. Both Derek Rose, of Arlington Road, Camden, North London and Jakir Uddin, of Old Walsall Road, Birmingham, have denied the charges of blackmail. The jury is yet to deliver a verdict on 20 year Uddin.

Senna Review


OK
Using his own words in interviews done throughout his life, this slightly unambitious documentary recounts the fascinating story of Brazilian Formula One legend Ayrton Senna.

A natural-born driver, Senna was a soft-spoken, likeable young guy whose wealthy family backed his career from the start, indulging in his passion for go-karts. they also supported as he fought his way into Formula One and rapidly rose to fame due to his sheer talent. As he speaks, we see the importance of religion in his life, his deep desire to improve life for Brazil's children, and how he learned from mistakes as he earned three championship titles. He also boldly dismissed the politics of the sport and stood up to anything that was unfair.
