Blog: Chris Brook-CarterSchuma-cola opportunity

At this weekend’s Grand Prix in Bahrain, the top three drivers will not be permitted to soak each other in Champagne, for fear this would offend Islamic sensibilities.

Organisers are preparing non-alcoholic drinks for the drivers to spray instead.

Michael Schumacher soaked in cola? Many would pay good money to see that.
