Given how hilariously inaccurate Drive To Survive has been in past seasons, I expect this season to be no different. Look for the Lewis Hamilton/Max Verstappen accident at Silverstone to be portrayed as Hamilton taking out a hit on him by blasting hip hop from his car and tossing loose diamonds from his jewellery onto the track in order to cause a puncture.

What do people make of the new cars (excluding Red Bull who've only shown the FIA show car in RB livery) launched so far? To my eyes they all seem to look refreshingly different from one another.

R7 Jost Capito was interviewed and said that financially Williams currently didn't need to be chasing a title sponsor. Could be bullshit or true given the new cost cap plus Dorilton paying off the team's debt.

Of course, there could also be stuff going on behind the scenes with the VW Group for the future.

Michael Masi is gone as race director. The FIA tried to bury the announcement by scheduling it the same time as the Ferrari unveiling.

I first figured out that Masi wasn’t up to the job in Spain last year, the first time I saw him duck outside for a cigarette between sessions, pot belly hanging over his pants. He has no stamina.

Although, in Melbourne, the winners don’t stay to party. The drivers get out of dodge and into their private jets for the 20 hour flight home. I ran into Nico Rosberg fending off professional autograph hunters at the airport after he won in, I think, 2016.

That was a fun race. The only bad thing I can say is the new cars are ugly and slow, it’s like watching Indy cars.

Seeing Ferrari back on top was fun. Equally fun was KMag’s return and best of the rest result. The Red Bull Power Trains fails mixed things up though when I saw Gasly’s car catch on fire at the same corner where Romain Grosjean crashed my heart went into my throat. And those Mercedes were porpoising like crazy, so the p3 and p4 were a surprise and I Lewis Hamilton’s podium acted as an exorcism for Abu Dhabi last year.

I made the mistake of watching the first episodes of DTS and Christian Horner annoyed me so much that I couldn’t watch the rest of the series.

So I laughed my ass off when the new RB engines fizzled out - and that after Verstappen’s multiple radio tantrums.

It was also super funny when Bottas did a terrific qualifying run and did his classic terrible start dropping back 7 places by the first corner. Glad he and Zhou got in the points though as I was a Sauber fan back in the day.

Carlos Sainz is so fucking hot. How can someone be this beautiful?

by Anonymousreply 31March 21, 2022 8:02 AM

Yep, Sainz is hot. Great lips and hair. He’s got good videos on his YouTube channel of him doing day to day stuff and he’s a funny guy as well.

Alonso is also hot. He’s the most fuckable to me. Lewis is handsome. Ricciardo has a great nose and smile but his personality (or the one he puts on) is a bit much. Charles is pretty. I don’t think that guy ever had an awkward phase.

Ocon, Mick, and Albon are pretty cute. I like Ocon’s quasi-bucktooth smile.

Gasly is unique looking. Sometimes he looks very good and the other times he just looks strange. He should model when he’s done driving. He’s got the look for it.

Alonso is not aging very well, but the old pictures of him are really hot, Briatore made sure we had some "sexy" pictures of him.

I’m going to the Austrian GP this weekend (my first live race! Exciting) and I flew from Heathrow to Vienna today and guess who was on my flight? Alex Albon. Woot woot.

I was one of the first ones to the departure gate and took a seat, and then I look over to this tall guy with purple hair walking in and it was Alex. He sat in some seats against the wall and put his two carryons on the two seats next to him (I guess so no one would bother him. Understandable). A group of five teens saw him and went over and asked for a selfie, which he said of course!, but no one else bothered him. Which was nice to see.

After the flight I figured he’d be long gone (he was in first class, me in coach) but I saw him at the baggage claim. Again only one person asked for a pic. I was waiting sort of out of the way for my bag (away from the big jumble of people at the start of the conveyer belt) and Alex came over my way and stood near me. I decided to say something since he was so close, I didn’t expect to see him again, and I knew I probably wouldn’t ever have another opportunity.

I told him I liked his helmet from last race and asked if he’d be wearing it this weekend. He smiled and said thanks and that he wouldn’t. I said it was cute and I liked the cats. He laughed. That’s all I said, I didn’t want to be too annoying. I didn’t ask for a selfie or an autograph. I feel pretty good about that.

He’s cute. Especially when he smiles. He has great skin as well. I hope he gets in the points on a Sunday.

I'd relate my experience at a live F1 race, but it was when Emerson Fittipaldi secured the championship posthumously for Jochen Rindt at Watkins Glen, with Jacky Ickx second. I suspect things have changed.

Well, I recall Ickx coming from way back in the field to second. Had he won he would have been Champion instead of Rindt. And Watkins Glen is beautiful.

by Anonymousreply 145July 10, 2022 3:31 PM

Thanks for the concern r144! I am just fine, back at my hotel after an exhausting, but fun!, three days.

Thankfully I was not sitting in one of Max’s grandstands. That would be hell! There were sooo many Max fans at the race. That one section out near the bull statue would be terrible for a non Red Bull fan (like me). So many loud, drunk, obnoxious people with all those smoke flares. And in the sun. No thank you. I had enough of them in the fan/shop areas.

I was seated in the start/stop grandstand and it was definitely civilized. No problems that I saw, but I 100% believe there was a problem for other people- especially woman. Some people are just assholes. Like the ones who cheered when Lewis crashed during the Sprint. That was shitty.

I won’t ever go to a Belgium or Netherlands race as long as Max is a driver- too many of his fans there!

I’m happy Charles won! He needed that. It was pretty scary when Carlos’ car caught fire, started rolling backwards, and Carlos was still in it. Glad he’s okay. Happy for Mick and Haas also!

My fav driver, Vettel, didn’t do so well, but he started the race and the sprint yesterday directly in front of where I was sitting so i got some sweet pics of him and his fantastic bee helmet. Though, I don’t think he smiled once. This was not his weekend. :(

I had such a blast. Maybe I’ll do Canada next year (finances permitting).

Thanks for the report back R146. Just watching the race on C4. One of the better races this season - some great battles and drives up and down the grid.

by Anonymousreply 147July 10, 2022 7:10 PM

Glad you enjoyed yourself, r146. The track is so gorgeous as is Spa, but I won’t be going there.

I can understand cheering when a driver drives off because it’s sort of exciting but throwing a dance party when he’s silent in the car and you don’t know if all his limbs are unbroken is another matter. Did the Max fans forget what happened to Zhou just last week?!

Most of the crazy behaviour reported - lifting skirts, pissing at opposing fans feet, groping and sexual comments - would have the instigators ejected where I live because the venues and organisers don’t want to open themselves up to criminal liabilities. Maybe the regulations are different in Austria, but it’s a bad look.

That would be incredible. 😳.

Yes r151, what you’re desiring is paddock club access.

As for private parties with the drivers they are there to work, they do as little PR as their contracts will allow them. Most of them fly out hours after the race.

I’ll miss seeing Vettel out there. I picked him as my favorite driver back in 2014. I was hoping he’d go to a new team after this year and keep at it for another couple of years.

But you could tell the guy is unhappy (from the hobo hair and beard alone) and Aston Martin wasn’t doing it for him.

I think Lewis will be done after next year, and Alonso will drive until he’s 45.

anyway, I am R169 and I hate to see I was right to see Alonso at Aston. I'm gutted.

Even weirder is Piastri's contract timing, super suspect. Alonso doesn't need to throw the all Alpine team under the bus, he could tell Rosi and Otmar to go fuck off, he is too old for that kind of shit, he should know better by now.

by Anonymousreply 177August 5, 2022 8:30 PM

Apparently Alonso was being paid, or was offered a contract for 2023, for less than Ocon. And we all know how his ego is. He’s still a major brat. Alpine is apparently bleeding money.

Mark Webber read the writing on the Ricciardo wall from Zac Brown’s comments and was clearly in cahoots with Alonso to release Piastri to McLaren which is a cooler brand and has money for development.

by Anonymousreply 181August 6, 2022 12:34 AM

Get real, Ricciardo has been stinky for years and is coasting off his persona. He’s a good driver but not a great one - or maybe he peaked in 2020 when he was at Renault. He beat Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen at various points but Vettel peaked at a young age as a driver and has 4 championships to show for his efforts, and Verstappen was in his Crashstappen era then.

He couldn’t beat Max in the same car now. Hamilton has shown he is still one of the top 2 drivers on the grid. Norris has humiliated him. Russell, LeClerc, Alonso and arguably Magnussen would smoke him. I think it’s his own fault for leaving Red Bull. I wouldn’t want to be a work for the belligerent Horner or the crazy Marko, but he also wanted to be the number 1 driver in a team when he’s no longer up to the task. Bouncing from team to team shows a weakness of character.

F1 and the FIA would want him around for a couple of years as the sport goes onto ESPN and adds the Las Vegas race so he’ll have no trouble getting a seat. If, say, Schumacher goes to Alpine, he could be a fun fit for Haas and a very popular ambassador for the team in America.

by Anonymousreply 182August 6, 2022 5:02 PM

R178 Alonson was offered less money than ASTON, not OCON. The kid only won one race, Alonso has two championship!! There is at least one digit difference between them. If Ocon get 1 million (and I'm not sure he really get it), Alonso get 10 millions.

by Anonymousreply 183August 6, 2022 5:57 PM

That's stupid, now that Piastri is gone to McLaren, Alpine can offer the multiyear contract he wants, and when he is fed up driving, he can have a go at being team principal, after Otmar is shown the door...

by Anonymousreply 184August 7, 2022 6:12 AM

Don’t underestimate Alonso’s sheer pettiness. The only reason a driver as great as he is has only 2 championships is because of his own self-sabotage. He has a history of flouncing off from teams.
