It was a special moment for Alexander Sims and Dean Smith when they drove the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 car at Silverstone, England last week.

Alexander and Dean won the AUTOSPORT MCLAREN YOUNG DRIVER OF THE YEAR competition in 2008 and 2009 respectively and this was part of their prize. The guys drove fantastically. They have come a long way since I began working with them in their Formula Renault days. It was great to see some of the guys I used to work with at McLaren and I was proud of the way the boys performed in front of them.

Great effort, fellas.

Gerry.
