Its discrimination I tell you.

What are well built, good looking girls with not many skills going to do for cash now? There are a limited number of footballers and rich blokes that need trophy wives.
Its all right for the clever ones that have skills, they can get a real job.

Not being a Mexican myself this is just an observation from afar, but was that guy dodgy as hell or what???

Former mayor, links to F1, builds that monstrosity Casio that takes over your whole city skyline, then sells his share for how many 100 million $$$$.....???

Corrupt much??

You know it... ;D
That’s why my first thought when I see ‘former politician, turned property developer, come multi millionaire’ is always; CORRUPT!

But, happy to be wrong with this guy.
If he was mega rich and gave away heaps of money to lots of good causes, then perhaps we can forgive him for receiving a few relaxations of planning laws from old mates aye... ;D

Danny boy putting on a masterclass in Monaco.
First in all 3 practice sessions and first in all 3 qualifing sessions.

Once again his teammates ego gets a bruising and walls it trying to catch Dan.

Hopefully Redbull don't screw Dan over like they did in 2016 with their pitwork.

With Max being so far back and this track shocking for overtaking I’m sure the Aussie is there priority. Be good to see him have a win.

I’m sure Max will still come up with a way to take Dan out.

Going to be interesting watching Max starting from the rear at a tight Monaco. Given he lacks 2 things.
Patience and overtaking craft...

No doubt the kid is once in a generation quick, but I think he reads too much into the hype around himself.
He needs a Niki Lauda type as his boss.

Too late for me, so I'll tape it.

X2.

Well done Dan.  Got pretty edgy when his power unit went down on power.

Will Power winning the Indy 500 is huge!  First ever Aussie to win at the Brickyard in 102 years.

Is this what Formula One race cars will look like in 2050?

McLaren have released radical images of how they think the future of the sport will look.

The battery-powered F1 cars will be capable of speeds of nearly 500km/h, with aerodynamic bodywork that changes shape mid-race to give cars even better downforce.

McLaren have conducted extensive research looking at technological, economic, environmental, political, and societal trends while also consulted with fans to ask them what they'd like to see in the future.

The car will be powered by an electric motor and will feature a driver and an Artificial Intelligence co-pilot - just like spaceships in Hollywood movies.

Niki Lauda has sadly passed away following his recent illness. The world will forever be a different place without him in it and we sure will miss seeing him in the paddock and on our F1 screens. What a great man he was and an inspiration to all. RIP Niki

Sad day for f1 it's amazing that he had his last rights read to him after a stack  in 76 at Nürburgring then survived and went on to win the championship the following year.

A man of great courage and  a strong commitment to F1, will be sadly missed by the motor racing fraternity.
