“Kravitz and Lazenby Take Unexpected Break from F1: Surprising Plans Revealed”
In an unexpected twist, F1 enthusiasts were caught off guard when it was announced that David Kravitz and Simon Lazenby, both key figures in the Sky F1 team, would be absent from the Zandvoort race weekend. Instead of their usual F1 coverage, the two have embarked on an intriguing venture at the Edinburgh Festival, immersing themselves in experimental dance performances.
Kravitz himself shared this news as he signed off from his latest Ted’s Notebook episode in Belgium, stating, “I won’t be there [Zandvoort], Simon [Lazenby] and I are doing some experimental dance at the Edinburgh Festival. I and the notebook will return at the Italian Grand Prix in Monza.”
Rachel Brookes, stepping in to provide context, further detailed their absence and introduced their replacements in the pit lane: “Ted and Simon are at the Edinburgh Fringe at the moment, getting involved in some experimental dance,” she explained. “So, they’re not here this weekend. So, in the pit lane instead we have Karun Chandhok and Bernie Collins.”
Kravitz’s infrequent time away from F1 becomes all the more remarkable, considering he has missed only one race weekend during the current season, which was during the Spanish Grand Prix in June when he opted for a leisurely journey along the Grand Union Canal.
As the F1 community eagerly anticipates the possibility of Max Verstappen achieving a historic feat, the absence of Kravitz and Lazenby adds an intriguing layer. Verstappen is poised to secure his third consecutive home race victory at Zandvoort and has the potential to match Sebastian Vettel’s impressive record of nine consecutive race wins in a single season. While Kravitz may not witness this pivotal moment, fans can eagerly await his insights when he returns for the Monza race weekend.
