Huski Chocolate is a lifestyle, not only a product. It's about adventure & expedition. Living life to the fullest. It's a perfect recovery drink after training, because of the healthy carbohydrate and protein content, easy to digest and perfect for replenishing tired muscles.

ron dennis is a man who specifically requested a size of tile for the MTC floors so they wouldn't have to cut any to fit and would have full-size tiles everywhere. imagine how he'd feel with the wal-mart logo on the front of that building.

quote:

After driving the 2012 F1 Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel has handed back his World Driver’s title for that season.
The apparently legitimate 4-time driver’s champion made the donation after undergoing his first ever Ferrari test in the car in which Fernando Alonso ran him close and which turned out to be utter dogshit.
Said the 27 year old legend-charlatan, “my RB8 Red Bull was the pinnacle of F1 engineering; a perfectly balanced chassis that could be coaxed or manhandled to the minutest level of precision depending on any circuit or track condition that presented itself.”

Ron Dennis is to ensure only suitably shaped Nachos inhabit the Mclaren motorhome.

The recruitment of Sergio Perez to the Woking team nearly collapsed at the last minute when it was revealed the 22 year old was a big fan of his country’s staple diet of re-fried leftovers and crisps.

Camp interior design expert, Laurence Llewelyn Bowen said, “serving spicy South American finger food amidst Mclaren’s proto-industrial minimalist chic is a recipe for disaster.”

Jackie Stewart used to ensure that the tires on the team transporter, when parked, always had the company logo top-and-center, which I think would have made Ron proud.
