    Nice rug in the pre-podium room. It really ties the room together.

    Perez makes Hόlkenberg look pretty average.
    Oct. 31, 1999 - one of the blackest days in motorsports.

    Baku - a beautiful city.
    The track nice except for that IDIOTIC turn 8.

    Dang I stayed up all night watching La Mans, and fell asleep by lap 3 of this race. Missed the whole thing!
    May the forza be with you

    Anyway , too easy for Nico .
    I wish Lewis would have been right there with him for a battle .

    Sadly , we see the Merc still not so stable in traffic .

    I think this should be the final straw for Mercedes. Letting Lauda make unsettling comments that are unnecessary is surely something for concern. The guy is an idiot at times.

    Surely Lewis not winning is because he are black. There's a whole truckload of dimwits about on twatter claiming that Merc nefariously messed up his car's setup after FP3 and it's all the sun's fault anyway. The fact that he might have effed up with his 'I don't need no stenkin' simulator' and 'track walk is for girls' shtick doesn't quite compute for his fans.

    Maybe you should be confronting those fans on Twitter rather than trying to drag it into here? You won't find that level of stupidity in here.

    Anyway that aside, I think Lewis had a good race despite some difficulties. He drove well and stayed out of trouble and overcame a problem even if it may have righted itself depending on who's talking. I think the race highlighted that the new radio rule does not necessarily improve the racing, as demonstrated by a few drivers.

    The race wasn't quite as exciting as expected but I do like the circuit. Let's dump Monaco and have Baku instead!

    Humm, I get a feeling that Hamilton isn't Lauda's favourite son anymore.
