Adam Hay-nicholls is the Formula One columnist for Metro, the author of three books, and an occasional contributor to Vogue, Esquire and Condé Nast Traveler. He’s on the road 265 days a year reporting from motor races and lives in Paris in his downtime. In 2010, Adam circumnavigated the globe in 57 hours aboard a Sabreliner, one of the world’s first business jets. He has also fulfilled another ambition: to drive Fernando Alonso’s Formula One car flatout. This month, he switches between land and sea, test driving the Rolls-royce Ghost II (p.200) and selecting his top five superyachts of 2014 (p.204).
