That Hamilton Guy is from some another planet. For season, i hope to see Kimi winning some races and Valtteri improving his performance so he could continue his career on Mercedes. Hamilton gonna take The championship.
That was so far from being a spectacle. This is f1 now. I'm going to get my fun from touring cars I think. Thankfully Mercedes may have made this interesting for us by making their cars so susceptible to turbulent air.
GG vettel fuck alonso and god dammit let kimi win finally
Kimi is done with wins.
I was at Turns 9 and 10, so here's shots of Dan and Max:
And here are the Dutch fans at Turn 10:
For half of Friday and Sunday, I had the #3 Red Bull Hat on; the other half of Friday and Saturday, the #33. Red Bull Racing shirts every day otherwise; I ordered the black and orange McLaren shirt and grey/orange hat from their online store but it didn't arrive in time. Pity, they did really damned well.
There were some absolute memes at the track though; two guys wearing Kimi hats from his Lotus days, but shirts with the PVDSA logo meaning... post-Kimi Lotus...
Every car looks great. You just ID them now by camera pod over helmet. The McLaren stands out beautifully, and I wasn't a huge fan of the livery in the photos. They sound good too - I'll upload the opening lap at turn 9 just for reference. But at practice a couple of times you'd hear Max in particular (because the boy cannot push, I love it) feathering the throttle to control the car, or the Ferraris hitting the rev limiter and it sounded absolutely filthy. Even the Honda sounded unique and good, despite the performance.
Good potential from Haas, and I mean, Magnussen wasn't being an absolutely shit human being on track so that's great. I was still pleased he retired but gutted for Grosjean and the team.
There were lots of great classic cars on display, but also this - which was cloudmcshort's favourite:
Actually on that first Dutch shot, you can see marshalls on the grass there - Ricciardo stopped there on the driver's parade lap, and had a pneumatic cannon that shot t-shirts into the crowd. People were yelling "over here Dan!" like he could hear. Bless them.
