there's a 2-minute video on sky: https://www.skysports.com/f1/news/12433 ... p-job-swap

hopefully some onboards will appear eventually. imo it was pretty cool, Vale spinning 3 times and Lewis having an off on the bike, but then both being really quite close on times

Ok, not an exact match, but I couldn't help but think they are erecting a statue of Lewis in Richmond Virginia. :o

I wonder how many hours and laps practice was required to get that time in the game. Of course, having no acceleration on the body means it's physically much easier to hone the time too.
Ingame record is 1.33.1, 1.34.7 is nothing special in this case. It's a game after all.

hmmm, 2.77 instead of 3.0!

1.0, 2.0, 2.77 that sounds like the law of diminishing returns is starting to kick in. :mrgreen:

Botas 2 and his number

Interesting that he feels he needs 0.77 improvement to beat Hamilton, realistic or optimistic?

Lewis is trying to get Mercedes to follow Tesla in using vegan 'leather' in its road cars:
"Mercedes-Benz is a huge organisation, and I have got a phone call with the CEO later today to discuss how we can work on getting rid of all the leather supplied to the cars," Hamilton told Malaysian magazine The Edge, according to Auto Week. "I want to be part of a system that is going to help heal the world and do something positive for the future." (Motor1)

pretty cool afaic. And what a great way for an F1 team to lead its road car division 8)

apart from the animal welfare /humanity aspect, apparently leather production in the UK generated 39,000 tonnes of CO2 in 2017 , on top of the issues with water pollution and the feeding. See? F1 can do green :mrgreen:

Toto:

“When Sir Jim Ratcliffe approached us with the concept of bringing together the three organisations, all with proven track records of excellence and high ambitions for the future, we immediately saw the opportunity to grow and diversify our business – and to learn from some of the most successful teams in world sport. We are very excited about this agreement’s potential in the months and years ahead.”

Pffft! Vegan leather makes as much sense as vegan sausages or vegan bacon. Leather is the tanned hides of animals. If it isn't an animal then it isn't leather.
