#Apu How much do you train yourself?
Minttu: It's easy to go to the home gym. Currently I exercise 5 times a week. I'm in quite good shape. Kimi is in great shape. He will not miss any exercise.

The family closely follows all the races.
- Yes, at home we watch all on TV.
Is it more exciting to be at the track?

Minttu: Sure, but it's also more convient. I have here the feeling that I know what's happening and what's going on. I see lap times and hear communication through headphones. At home I only depend on TV broadcast.
Kimi now racing for Alfa Romeo
Minttu: The feelings are the same. Moving to the midfield hasn't taken away the excitement - or meant less interest. All the while, of course, I hope they improve step by step, and after all, it is really good to be at Alfa Romeo.

Everybody has an opinion about Apu, but did they ever talk to someone who owned a convenience store or gas station or work in one or grow up in one? You know, like my dad and I? #simpsons #apu
As someone who spent many weekday afternoons after school in the freezing cooler of my dad's Texaco reading or finishing homework while eating Jamaican beef patties and sipping fountain drinks, I have a few stories to tell of how hard my dad and mom worked to make a better life.
This story starts in 1968, when my dad came here at age 17, the youngest of four brothers who would all emigrate from Nadiad a small town in Gujarat, India. Of course, he barely spoke English. But guess what, he pumped gas during the cold nights in Forest Hills, New York.
