Ferrari is once again run by a man who refuses to take his sunglasses off, even at night. And there was plenty more nocturnal glamour to be found in China last weekend.
The action was centred on The Bund and sexy new venue M18. One always approves of a nightclub that sounds like some kind of assault weapon or tank. On Thursday night it played host to Ferrari and their friends, not only in anticipation of the grand prix but also the Beijing Auto Show.
Sunday night most of the drivers got the hell out of Dodge but those that stayed – Esteban Gutierrez, Giedo van der Garde and Nico Hulkenberg – headed to M18 for The Code 20 party, which always delivers on fun, beats and performance art. Erok was on the decks with most of the Infiniti Red Bull crew in tow, and Merante Tamar van Amersfoort took to the stage in a variety of outrageous and eye-catching costumes.
