    I keep on hoping his next race will the start of his comeback again this year,only to be proved 'wrong wrong wrong'.

    C'mon Kimi show us what you can do!

    P.S do NOT under any circumstances move over to let Vettel through :)

    New MGU-H for Ricciardo after his failure in qualifying - 10-place grid penalty. Doesn't affect his 19th position on the grid.

    The one that'll let his teammate through, hopefully. Vettel needs all the points.

    Ricciardo predictably gets new engine ahead of the race, will still start last of course.

    The Harrelson brothers taking a photo opp with MA, Kimi and Vettel this morning. Notice no 70yr anniv. logo on their shirts???

    "Breaking News" a 'spy-shot' shows Mercedes have added new feature to Hamilton's W08 at the British GP with Vettel starting right behind him. (I thouht this was funny and I hope not
    to stir the Baku incident).

    His usual "Happy go lucky - Water off a ducks back" persona appears to be waning quite a bit this season, with certain questions and statements resulting in him coming out with some very aggressive statements.

    Looking at his comments about Grosjean (https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/grosjean-moaning-wolff-hamilton-british-gp-931071/ ), you can't help feeling that his opinions would have been a tad different if Grosjean had held up Hamilton. In fact, I'd pretty much guarantee that he would have been straight to the stewards, moaning and demanding that Grosjean should get a grid penalty!


    It will be interesting to see what happens in the race if Hamilton needs to lap Grosjean now. My monies on Hamilton having to wait and wait and wait for blue flag after blue flag, whilst Kimi and Seb will be let through immediately!

    As the old saying goes: "What goes around, comes around!" ;)

    The UK's Channel 4 coverage is getting annoying! - They seem to think that everyone in the UK is a Lewis Hamilton fan! :mad:

    Listening to the presenters, apparently Hamilton has won the race already! :rolleyes:

    "Come on Kimi........Come on Seb.......... Ruin Hamilton's day!"

    It's incredibly annoying, sky does it also to some degree.

    My friend had their RV parked next to Crofty last night, I'm told it was very entertaining :)
