Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Senna’s F1car likely to rake in £750,000 at UK auction

London - The Formula One car in which Ayrton Senna made his debut is expected to fetch 750,000 pounds when it goes for an auction in the United Kingdom.

It will be sold at The Spring Sale hosted by Silverstone Auctions on May 16.

Senna made his F1 debut in the 1984 season, in which he drove this 650bhp Toleman TG184-2 car, which was the first automobile to showcase his talent on the big stage.

Silverstone Auctions has been described the F1 car as ‘the stuff of legends’ and a ‘truly unique piece of automotive history’.

“We are thrilled to bring this iconic race car to auction as it’s undoubtedly one of the most important lots we’ve ever offered. Senna mania is reaching fever pitch and rightly so as he’s  considered by many as the greatest F1 driver we’ve ever seen,” The Daily Mail quoted Silverstone Auctions managing director Nick Whale, as saying.

Senna won the F1 world championship thrice but was killed in 1994 during the San Marino Grand Prix.
