Hope you’re having a good weekend like we do.
After his first Lotus F1 race car test drive at Paul Ricard Circuit and his first race for the World Series by Renault at Monza, Italy, it was nice seeing Marlon Stockinger again the day before he raced at the most prestigious Monaco Grand Prix this morning. I got an SMS from Tom, Marlon’s dad, that they’re in Monaco. Well, Marlon arrived few days before and the parents got here yesterday. We were trying to coordinate how we could meet up given the busy schedule and super thanks to Consul Patsy Zobel de Ayala for organising cocktails at her fabulous terrace overlooking the amazing view of the Mediterranean sea. It was the same place where we had dinner with Giselle Sanchez, Gaby Concepcion and TFC team two years ago. It was also the same terrace where she hosted cocktails and dinners for other Kapamilya Stars such as Bea Alonzo, Maja Salvador, Angelica Panganiban, John Lloyd Cruz, Piolo Pascual, Sam Milby and others.
Mark and I had a photo taken exactly on the same spot during our dinner here last time…
Of course, I didn’t miss this chance of interviewing Marlon once again (for the third time, *kilig). Marlon shared his thoughts about the recent Lotus F1 Roadshow Manila, his excitement to be back in Monaco where he won the GP3 last year and his appreciation for all the support of our Kababayans (fellow Pinoys) in his career-
Thanks to Lewen – our great sports correspondent!
Here’s a photo of Patsy and Marlon proudly holding the Philippine flag -
Marlon’s signing few Lotus caps and she’s a fan too!
And here’s my photo with Patsy, our lovely host for that evening:
Please stay tuned for the video :-)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and let’s continue to cheer for our very own, Filipino-Swiss speedster – Marlon Stockinger!
