 “Still room for improvement” - Alonso drives Renault R.S. 20 After the 2018 season finale in Abu Dhabi, Fernando Alonso said goodbye to Formula 1. This year, apart from the Dakar Rally in January and the Indy 500 in August, there were actually no motorsport activities on the program. It was only when Daniel Ricciardo suddenly switched to McLaren that Alonso got back into the game at Renault.

The TV graveyard has welcomed another series in Kim Cattrall's Filthy Rich.

The Sex and the City favourite portrayed the mother of a wealthy evangelical family whose patriarch (played by Gerald McRaney) suddenly dies in a plane crash. Following this, a number of his illegitimate kids start to make a move for their inheritance.

For Sex and the City lovers, Cattrall has definitively confessed that she'd "never" return to the franchise if offered the opportunity again – after two movies and nearly 100 episodes.
