Hey maybe its just me.
My personal take is its part of the ribbing sports individuals do to either take credit or belittle the accomplishments or lack thereof from the athletes they love/hate.

Gotta have fun somehow right?

Wasn't trying to single anyone out! Was talking about all his fans! First post came off wrong, wasn't paying attention!

Wow, that's cool. Wanna visit someday but afraid I'll starve to death! Southern country boy's aren't accustomed to REAL Italian food. Missed my chance visiting NYC...We didn't even make it to Little Italy

Maybe next time

Its a great place...I loved living there...honestly, I preferred living there to being back in the UK.
I try to go back there as often as possible...being able to speak Italian makes quite a difference though.

I had no choice I got an AZ one in the end with no after effects.
There's rumour that either Alonso or Ocon have had positive covid test.

Yeah . I heard something from the Japanese at the company . But they didn't know who it was with COVID.

MAX said today : Mercedes didn't said it . But they did a big step forwards regarding the W12 PU !
