This is all Chinese whispers but to add to it apparently Renault got a decent deal but its back loaded so they only start to see real money if they see through their contract.

I love drama, I love all the nerdy technical stuff, I love the rules and loopholes and working out what elements of all of this will effect what, I really do, but I truly, honestly, do not give one single gently caress about who makes what part of red bull's engine.

We could vote for the MDC but then again that would be pretty useless as it's clearly our Seb.

um. Renault have been banging on about how Lotus/Renault will be champions within 3 years. I'm all out of news because Renault/red bull have this cycle and unless someone else tries to bury anything or Lewis acts like a cock in public then there will be nothing else to report till next week when the force India poo poo hits the fan.

Christian Vietoris - Maximilian Götz
Paul di Resta - David Coulthard
Pascal Wehrlein - Jean Alesi
Daniel Juncadella - Lucas Auer
Gary Paffett - Bernd Schneider

I for one predict Maylander breezing through to the final and then soundly beating Lewis. Lewis will then piss and moan about how if it was a F1 car race and not a safety car race he would have won.

Verstappen looks weird and will probably grow up to look normalish. He's only 12 years old so keep that in mind, too.

Kubica is ugly in the traditional sense. Whereas Max is the otherwordly lovechild of a lizard and joan rivers, it would be like asking if a tree is ugly.

Venezuela apparently votes soon which seems like the current government will lose their majority cause Maduro is as charismatic as a certain R. Dennis and, also, a complete lack of poo poo tickets. Besides Maduro & Co. literally saying they will instigate an armed rebellion if they lose a majority I think the more important question is just how drastically this will affect Pastor & that sweet, sweet PDVSA money. I hope Renault wasn't counting on it.
