I'm pretty sure , "The Dutch Orange Army" Isn't color blind !
Oh indeed adding fuel to the fire is hammy's speciality, I almost know him like the back of my hand. He might as well have dressed all in red to aggravate the RB fans further.

You're totally right : if there is one kind of sport in this world which doesn't float on loads of money, nepotism/favouritsm and (dirty) tricks it's motorsport/F1



I remember Russell driving Lewis' Mercedes and he did not win that GP. Because Lewis is the best!


Anyway I will leave it here. Sorry my bad!

FP1 Max goes second, nothing in it as he came out late and was caught up with a few cars.

Even though this is still P1, it already looks close.
HAM and VER are of course very close but it also looks like Ferrari might be competative

FP2 starts @ 15:00 CET so that's in about two hours....

In the meantime I will annoy you with some Dutch Culture...

Love the Dutch...someone has to.
Worked with a Dutchman for many years, great guy had lots of fun.
He had a sign up above his machine, it read..."If yer not Dutch yer not much"... it was changed frequently by me to words I cannot put in print on this platform.

Anyhow go 7ewis.

I'll add this: One of my favorite Pole laps in F1. Commentary by Martin Brundle. I've actually used his in management presentations to demonstrate mastery in in the face of adversity and a hostile environment and that mistakes made along the way don't necessarily have to lead to negative outcomes.

RUS didn't win that GP because HAM's car broke! Not saying HAM isn't great but that almost never happens to his car.

Lewis has PU failure in FP2 and the Dutch fans showing their class by resoundingly applauding.

I think the Dutchies were copying the UK/English fans @Silverstone who cheered when Lewis kicked Max from the track.
