Fabergé man is fixed in fast lane

Damon Hill may no longer be much of a presence on the Grand Prix circuit, but his lookalike from Elida Fabergé, marketing manager Simon Bell, caused quite a stir in last week’s final heat of the ITV F1 Go-Kart Challenge.

The race was won by a team from the RAC, followed by Elida Fabergé and media buying agency Motive. They go through to the grand finale, which will be filmed for possible broadcast during ITV’s coverage of the final Grand Prix in Spain.

Sources inform the Diary that ITV was secretly relieved when a team from sales house TSMS failed to qualify. With drivers from sales houses Laser and Carlton already through, a cynical observer might have muttered the word “fix”.
