I'm afraid to click on that link at work if the guy is a gropper.

What is a "gropper"?

Is it mis-spelled?

Inquiring minds want to know . . .   :lol: :huh:

Of course it is mis-spelled I posted it.   Gropper - he grabbed a young lady by her breast in the back seat of a car and posted it on his social media.

i think Albon's seat is safe.  He tied for 5th in the driver standings and will only get better.  I think Red Bull understands that and with them taking second in the constructors, he delivered what they needed to beat Ferrari. 
I will be totally shocked if he does not drive for Red Bull next year. 


Be totally shocked!!!!

Perez / Verstapen duo at Red Bull should be amazing!!

WOW
OK I am shocked, but after this season Perez really showed what he could do in a quality car.
Congrats to him.
Bummer for Albon, but I am sure he is making 7digits worth of moola as a reserve test driver, so he can cry himself to sleep on a mattress of $100 bills.

It sure did.
Red Bull also needed a second driver as aggressive as Verstappen, and with Perez they can take the fight to MB.
I am looking forward to this combination.

There is one twist to Perez going to RED Bull and that is he will not be under the direction of Marko, thus bringing the fight to Ves on the race track.

There is also a lot of information on F1 app. It should be a great weekend to see how everyone checks out. The testing information was pretty good reading, let's see if the teams have fix the issues they encountered during that time.

Haven't watched yet.  Might have to binge it.  I'm ready for another season of fun.  I don't have any favorites this year, I just hope there is chaos near the top to keep different teams in the hunt.  I'd love an accidental "B" team to win again.  Some fluke that gets a podium for HAAS would really be great.  Its been a lot of fun watching all these 13 and 14 seeds in the NCAAM Basketball moving on, now I want some of that in F1.

Thats the next episode I have to watch. 
That's a crazy long time.  On top of that, looking how he went through the barrier is just amazing that he survived.  Without the halo, he would not be here.
Great season and the timing couldn't be better to catch up and be ready for this weekend.

Practices are shortened by 30 minutes, new livery is interesting.  Cars appear to be closer in timed laps.

I caught some of it, but the real first test is tomorrow in Qualifying.

I finished watching Drive to Survive so I can't wait to watch this weekend.
