And what's with him not wanting to say the words Mercedes or Lewis Hamilton? What a child :lol:
If he says Hamilton 3 times into his rear view mirror, Hamilton's car appears from nowhere and he has to immediately do a brake test.

Regarding that promo video, it is distasteful. If you need to promote the sport, there are plenty of incredible overtaking moves on video or other special moments. Why do they need to show what looks like a crash? It would be like a football advert saying Merry Christmas whilst showing a two footed challenge. There is just absolutely no need to have a crash in the background for any promotional material.
Sky pretty much does that every year too, promoting its boxing day football coverage, with a carol playing over loads of crunching tackles and argy bargy.

Verstappen is much lighter. Can I pick him up and use him to hit Corden with?
I went over the rules and not only are you allowed to do it, but you still get to punch one of em afterwards.

FFS that was some interview posted earlier.
You don't pronounce "Lewis Hamilton" and "Mercedes" anymore, I notice.

"That's right. That happens during a season like this. Too much has happened for that.”

This is just the actions of a brat, this actions IMHO are all down to Horner, he has been poring fuel on the fire all season, instead of telling Max t calm down once or twice, he comes out and says he has done nothing, its all down the Mercedes they are smearing him,

I like Hamilton but I won’t have minded Max winning as he is great driver but for Horner. What a joke this guy is!

Quick question.. how often do you think we’d have heard about Spa in the last week from Horner if Lewis had ‘won’ it?

I know Q1 isn't when it counts, but if Bottas is faster than Verstappen I think it won't be much in doubt who will win tomorrow.

EDIT: And because I said it he immediately goes and improves his time.

Where did Verstappen suddenly get that time from? He was yellow on the first sector and green on the second so seemingly made up 0.2 in the final sector?

I picked Alpine instead of Alpha Tauri for my last team pick in the Fantasy league, thinking their good form from the last few races would continue. :(

I like the helmet cam it's interesting to see the level of visibility they have

So they're talking about points deductions for any dodgy "accidents" what if theoretically it was Bottas or Perez who "accidentally" took out Max or Lewis? I'm not saying that'll happen but surely points deduction won't matter for them bar for constructors?

I noticed that every F1 champion in the past all have a certain attitude or craziness in them. I haven't seen or heard any humble ones other than Mika Hakkinen.

Damon Hill always came across as humble to me (I was young at the time though).
