The News of the World reported at the weekend in amongst it’s British GP preview that DC isto become a father after the end of the season.

I’ve not heard this or read it anywhere else, so I’m not 100% certain that it’s correct!  There are quotes from the man himself saying how pleased he is,but that this was not the reason behind his retirement.

As Max Mosley would protest, the News of the World is perhaps not the most reliable of sources, and it’s unusual that it’s sister paper, The Sun hasn’t mentioned the story ths week - to my knowledge anyway.

So mystery surrounds it a bit, but if it’s true then many congratulations to DC and Karen!!
