Max did two things my friend..
Answered the two bearded critics,
Spiced up the Boulevard no end.
Was there a few years ago and it was the best holiday we had.

Race starts on Sunday at 19:10 GMT.It's one of the best tracks for overtaking and the run down the pit straight is an ideal place to jump someone being quite wide.Makes a change from the European doll's house width tracks so for sure no more moans from the bearded two.

Yeah my friend . It's a great track . Over here the race starts one hour later (20:10) because last week we changed to minus 1 hour winter time . Actually it's just Belgian BS .

The same with us, we had an extra hour in bed It may be the last time it happens according to reports.
Fantastic seeing that quick vid of the techs putting together an RB-15.(or an RB7 as the case may be).

I'm looking forward to Crashhappend slamming into yet another driver, and then Belgian and M5 making even more excuses for it and blaming the person who was hit.

Ted Kravitz showing Ricciardo's Texas football helmet during practice 2. Ted asks..."what I don't get is the roman numeral XII on the back". Fellow announcers saying does it mean the 12th district of Texas. LOL.

Big 12 conference...Ted.

Perez is set to start the race from the pit lane. Apparently he failed to stop for the weigh bridge during FP2.

It also seems that a slipstream on the back straight can have a big advantage during qualifying. Will be interesting to see if the teams play any games.

Any lastly, the track is much more bumpy this year than in the past. They have ground down sections of the track to help, but apparently its still quite bad. Hamilton said its a bit dangerous during FP1 and Grosjeans crash in FP2 may have been partly attributed to hitting the bumps. Could make for an interesting race

It was very bumpy! Quite a few are now saying it's dangerous to race there because off the racing line it is treacherous with cars bucking being thrown off line a lot and Grosjean crashed because of that reason. Hamilton had to lie down with a huge headache,so in the race?
FP3 is at 18.00 GMT.

Merc's more likely Ham is looking good on practices especially for race pace.. Red Bulls will on the spot also.. Ferraris dont seem to enjoy the track that much since Vettel spins and Leclerc went off.. and because of those bumps HAAS lost some of its carbonfibre on the straight..

and didnt know that track sunk like 1.5m in last 6-7 years.. thats crazy.. probably new surface will be on for next year..
