Doesnt make any sense to me that Lotus would even ask Hulkenberg at all. Why in the world would he want to leave his team to drive for 2 races at Lotus? That just sounds stupid to me.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

I am not sure what the deal was with this offer from Lotus.

On one hand, he gets his foot in the door with the team.
OTOH, if it didn't come with a contract for next year, he could potentially have nowhere to go in 2014.

And I agree without some time behind the wheel there isn't any way he could fill Kimi's shoes in any appreciable way and would probably look bad compared to Grosjean.

Does anyone know for sure that it is Alonso in the other car? I'm pretty sure Alonso wouldn't be overshooting those corners time and time again and losing so much time.

Either way, I'm jealous! biggrin.gif

They were both drifting and screwing around. Pedro was doing it too, listen to the rpm. They killed about 2k worth of tires doing it. I need to do that.

It wasn't a race or time trial, it's the ability to throttle steer the car through the turns. The old game of lead and follow. biggrin.gif

At the 55 second mark you can see a little guy who looks a lot like Alonso in the other car.

That is a pretty good price for the amount of laps. It would be tough to make half of them. Next morning you would feel like you went 3 rounds with Tyson.

Webber's "quote" is the best. That whole article is hilarious….apparently sniffpetrol is to F1 what The Onion is to everything else.

What if Slim doesn't want to sponsor McLaren anymore, isn't Vodafone leaving? who's gonna pay them the big bucks now?

Perhaps Checo will go to another team with Slim's money, maybe be the #1 driver there..

RIP Mom, we always love you 8/18/13

Unfortunately thats the same coverage as always but with more replays.
It says they will live stream practice but it doesnt say which ones. If its just the same one thats on tv then thats useless.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!
