I can’t wait to see Verstappen fail again this year. It’s been what, 3 or 4 years? How many more hype videos and excuses can his fans make for him?

The one thing is this: No matter how much I was hated because of how I looked, their grudging respect was always given because of my work ethic and the way I drive revenue. Everyone loves a golden goose. 12 years in the company. Started in entry-level sales and made it to national VP in 7 years.

3 of 55 people as a frontline management people in a biotech company. Always polite. But I was paid less in base salary but that didn't matter because I drive revenue and always killed on bonus and my people killed on bonus because I drive the FK out of revenue.

Only one of 35 on a contract management team. See above.

I know what it's like to walk into a room and it goes silent. I know what it is like to have someone say, "you're so well spoken...its different and refreshing". Because I'm corporate polite I said, Thank you but I was always thinking, "You s4it kicking hillbilly, I've been traveling internationally since I was 14 and we have, in my immediate family 17 degrees among 5 people. Why am I even talking to you, idiot." But I'm older now and more reserved.

Fortunately, I've arrived at a place in my life where I call out racist behavior when I see it because I just about have FU money and dgaf about what people think unless I have affinity for them, without respect to color.

What you said and the way you put it was racist. YOU may not be, but what you said was.

Glad you cleaned it up but please do better in the future.
🙌🏾 Amazing amazing amazing. Say it louder for the people in the back!

I enjoyed some Belgian brews when I visited Bruges,capital of West Flanders. Best to sip these beers slowly as a lot of them are very liberal with the alcohol content.

Guys, the Temple of Speed is The Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, not The Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari.

Your team is going into the race with another big advantage. Here from Silver Arrows.net

http://www.silverarrows.net/news/rum...S2u7-mcwXabVEY

From Andy Shovlin:

“Looking to Imola and looking to Portimao I don’t think we’re good enough in high speed,” Shovlin said after the Bahrain Grand Prix.

“There’s plenty of that in Imola and Portimao And that’s one area that they’ve [Red Bull] got an advantage.

“There’s elements that I think will move us in the right direction like we have struggled with the rear end here in Bahrain. Those circuits will be easier in that regard.

“But as I said, high speed is something that we wouldn’t be naive in thinking that can be a strength of ours at those tracks.”

Regarding Checo-Perez :

So , I watched the 3 seasons from "Drive to Survive" and I noticed in S03-E9 (season 3 - Episode 9) "something" really remarkable in Checo's car !

"The Pope and the holy virgin Mary are in F1" and present in the cockpit from Checo's Pink Mercedes !


I just pulled a snapshot with my VLC media player..

Oh I know that MKS,I was at Imola with my dad when 'Manselli' was wrestling the F1-90 but lasted only 5 laps.
Thanks for putting that bit of news on,do you think just changing the floor will make any difference to the 12 at high speed..I suppose it's what 'above' the floor e.g. air channels and so forth that will count more. Never been to Monza.

You got me wrong , because :
Of course ...I know my friend . I meant at Monza (in the temple of speed) we will witness the new found power of the new '21 HONDA PU .
In other words : In 2020 some drivers reached a top speed of 350+ km/h at Monza !

As you can see MAX ran with the slowest car of the field with a top speed of 336 km/h ...
That's a - (minus) 22 km/h slower RB16 !!!

In other words : That's why I said in the temple of speed (Monza) this year MAX's top speed will be otherwise ...

As you can see ...

Indeed, my friend but the fastest lap time on record goes to: Sir Lewis Hamilton, 2020.

According the latest from Toto :
Mercedes already tried to copy the high rake from the RB16B . It doesn't works with the W12 floor .
If Mercedes wants to run with the Red Bull high rake , they have to build a complete new car !
In other words : In 2021 the high rake is a "Mission Impossible" for Mercedes !

I bet you and your dad had a great time!

I believe the transitions from one turn to another is where the RB16B is currently superior. In steady state turns they may be a little closer. I just want to see them battle on track and everyone acknowledge that Mercedes isn't the faster car as they currently sit.

This is what I read on the blogs,Wolff is panicking for a new floor though experts say a new car is needed and it's not just a case of copying the 16B floor, something that RB has an even more modified floor in the waiting but only working in the 16B whole design window.

Oh for sure, we were at Tosa mingling with a sea of red around us but not much cheering as Prost could only get fourth as Patrese won the race in a Williams Honda. Patrese a very likeable chap with his big nose lol
