After 5 laps of having it's tyres chewed I suspect an actual train would go round the circuit quicker than the merc.

The Senna Mansell battle (93?) still gives me goosebumps when I watch it, best display of defensive driving I've ever seen, if he can do that I'll be impressed but he'll just be jumped in the pit stops. Alonso is a pretty good bet if he has a decent qualifying.

How anyone can claim Senna's defensive driving in Monaco was the best of all time is beyond me. There is 1 or 1.5 places to pass in Monaco. All he had to do was block that line for 3 laps. Mansell would have to be perfect as well to even make a pass there. Best defensive driving of all time? Not even close, he barely had to do anything.

id say the only hope of a merc win is if they qualify 1-2
and one backs the pack up

oops. he is at it again! lulu got annoyed with photographers and tv crews, and soaked them by doing donuts on a jet ski. merc had to apologise and reimburse something like $150,000 for damaged tv cameras etc.

Lewis was actually on a jet ski filming a piece with Nico for Sky F1. Cameras were not damaged as they had been waterproofed. Nothing to do with him getting annoyed at cameras.

irish. not according to reports on other sites and in newspaper blick. merc are playing it down a bit, so there must be some truth in it! but I would question the figure of 150,000 as it appears to be a bit excessive. probably cloer to 15,000.

polo. just doing my best to report what is appearing on other sites and in the papers. doesn't suit you?... well, don't read it!

back on topic, I see that nico is still faster than lulu, even if it is only practice, and lulu is again suffering from locking front brakes. do you think that he is being sabotaged?
