February the seventh was a lazy winter day. Sort of calm before the storm ahead of the upcoming 2017 Formula One season. I was sitting at home with my feet up on the coffee table when I received a WhatsApp audio message from Nico asking me to hang out with him in London for a couple of days – for a boys weekend as he put it.  I looked up my calendar on the iPhone and realising that I had nothing planned for the time between February 16th and 21st I said yes - with pleasure.
