Michele Alboreto


 acrylic on paper 8x12"

squeezed this one out between left over turkeys and dutch doughnuts...
sweet Michele...
Alboreto Ferrari Montreal 1984
with thanks to Robert Murphy :) who made this painting very easy

Michele Alboreto was the first F1 driver i met
he was chatting with Leo Mehl (Good Year) in the Monaco paddock 
and i showed him my little model cars....
he was so nice,
we chatted about tyres (what the hell did i know!) 
and that was the beginning of my career
