Advice : You should try it my friend . But don't do it when It's wet !
With the tendency for it to rain at the SF I'd have to choose my visit time verrry carefully to avoid a wet track

In my ///M I really can feel the downforce coming in , but on top of Eau Rouge I feel less of downforce. And It's just right there on top where most losing it and crash !
In the wet ? It's like hell !

I'm not chicken behind my steering wheel ,but if you push it flat-out. 'Huge B@lls are required !

Take a look at Eau Rouge !


Max & RIC don't "Dab" very well

Cam can teach them

I've just read that the Dutch GP probably tomorrow gets an official go from the government, but probably with only 66% audience due to the COVID rules.
So probably around 60K supporters.

1% of 90k is 900 people.

Let's say only half that.
0.5%

You are okay with 450 people dying because of a sporting event?

0.25% is still 250 people.

O.1% is still 90 people.

You post an article about some random Dutch reporters opinion as if its Gospel...other than yourself & Belgie, WHO FUKING CARES???

Every F1 thread that's started on BP just gets filed with this RedBullshit. I can't even bring myself to find it amusing anymore

All conspiracies point to Mercedes, especially against RedBull; yet here they are. I certainly don't get it.
