I think you should put the Pirelli sets for 2018, not 2017...
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

Goddamit! I was sure I clicked the right image to link. I'll fix it, it's been a bit challenging finding it. What do you think of the rest of the decorations though?

The high chance or rain and cold weather this weekended should make it interesting.

Fri - 69°/57° 40%

Going for his 5th win in a row, I'd say he's pretty handy round this track.

I think my favorite was 2012, when he ran Vettel down and passed him at the end of the back strait.

It was the first time we saw Hamilton, Vettel, & Alonso on the podium together. It's only happened 3 times total.

I wonder how much more juice Honda will bring to this race?

Have they requested tires this time, or is this what was left over? :lol:

Cold temperatures are something good for Mercedes. Expecting a dominant pole/race victory for Lewis but I hope I am wrong last races are being boring.
