Congrats to Verstappen...

If you're searching for the most gifted individual in motorsport today, maybe of all time, here he is: Marc Marquez

Nice ones Tarbuster!!! I couldn't find my Long Beach GP stuff, but here's one from long ago; my brother was a pretty famous DJ in Seattle and could get me press passes almost everywhere.
John Watson for the victory!

Not a hater at all!!! Lewis just did one of the most thrilling drives of all time!

But I’m sort of rooting for the Red Horse.

The big bad star needs to have its ass kicked every now and then.

What I would love to see is crashtappen and Brendon Hartley switch rides. Crash has had it to easy.

So, so. Hamilton ignores his pit crew and wins coming from 14th place, Vettel proves yet again that under no pressure he just throws it into the wall.

Sometimes it’s just better to be lucky. Any number of us are a tribute to that.
Lewis is also lucky that he’s damn good.

Mastering the rain in Budapest, Hamilton racks up his 77th pole position.
He says it's the third hardest track to pass at, so let's see if he and Bottas, in second position, can stay out ahead of the prancing horses.

The grid:

Hamilton
Bottas
Räikkönen
Vettel
Sainz (!)
Gasly
Verstappen
Hartley
Magnussen
Grosjean
Alonso
Ricciardo

Hard luck for Bottas. I don't get why they pitted him so early.
Great drive by Ricciardo and Gasly. Kimi must hate being around
his cheerful wife, huh?

Results:
1 Hamilton, 2 Vettel, 3 Räikkönen

Shoot, Verstappen overtook two cars at the start, only to lose his engine soon after. We all wanted to see what he could've done from fifth position.
Ricciardo, with a bad start and from way back in the field, came all the way up to fourth position and got the fastest lap at 1:20.

Bottas, with failing tires, got pinched both by Vettel and Ricciardo.
In the end, not so happy about being Hamilton's wing man, but did a good job of it at any rate.

Ha ha, Reilly, I was thinking the same thing about Räikkönen, The Iceman, having his pissy aura broken by his wife!
He's a piece of work: essentially saying, no, my son wasn't happy about third place, rather he's just always happy! Must be so hard on Kimi! Ha ha! WTF ...

At least we don't have to suffer the Hamilton/Rosberg drama any longer.

Amen, Roy! The Lewis-Nico act put the A in awkward, at best.

I’ve known some Finns. Even seen ‘em laugh, in private. 😉
The Swedes love having them for neighbors cause the Finns make
every Swede look like Robin Williams.

I think Yamaha is making bad choices. Allowing an "old" über-primadonna to grow at its core...

Yamaha’s crisis scenario on Saturday – when its MotoGP project leader apologised to his riders – reflects the kind of troubles the team now faces due to choices made after the return of Valentino Rossi. The first conclusion we can draw from Kouji Tsuya’s extraordinary press conference on Saturday at the Red Bull Ring is that the M1 bike is not at the level it is supposed to be.

During his speech, Tsuya-san apologised several times. But, looking at Yamaha’s results in the 11 grands prix run so far this season, the only obvious outlier is the 14th grid position of Rossi – hence there is some confusion as to why Tsuya chose this weekend to give that kind of public statement.

Sad to see Alonso is finally quitting F1. My bet is he will pursue Indy cars for a year or two to see if he can win the 500.

Kimi takes pole at Monza!
Do you think he could crack a smile about it? No. But we can only imagine (if dare to) his tight-ass sphincter relaxed a little bit. Ha ha!

As anticipated by Hamilton at Spa, Ferrari have speed.

Raikkonen's lap of one minute 19.119 seconds meant he averaged 163.793mph. The previous record - 1:19.525 (162.950mph) - was set by Juan Pablo Montoya in a Williams in 2004.

Vettel was not happy, saying "we speak after" as his engineer told him the result. The German declined to elaborate when asked to say what he meant.

I’ll tell ya what he meant -

“I’m a pissy wanker without class.”

Lots of racing intrigue – and racing, at Monza today!
Congrats to Kimi, a class act, for his 100th GP podium, blistered tires and all.

Yes, Lewis: with your fifth Monza win, matching Schumacher, we still believe in you!

HELLA RACE! LEWIS IS DA MAN! But I do feel for Kimi. He’s got class.
Gli tifosi italiani sono il migliori!
