    F1 - multiple twists and turns, narrow space to move

    Nascar - oval track, all you need to do is know how to turn left

    F1 drivers handle 5 g vs. Nascar drivers with 2 g's.
    Pitstops are an average of 3 seconds versus Nascar with 11 seconds.
    The start is from a dead stop, versus Nascar with a rolling start.
    They race in 19 different countries, vs Nascar, only in one.
    Of course the obvious left turns, in formula 1 there's also a right turn. Much more drastic precision is needed. Can't just bump into someone to solve the puzzle.

    Nascar = Boxing
    F1 = MMA

    I just noticed too, I would have assumed he and Song would have been taken off of the naughty step at the same time.

    Nah, just two groupies who want to hang out with me at the same time but I won’t let it happen because they’ll cause all chicks to run the other way (as we’ve seen @IschKabibble@IschKabibble ).......

    I know it's not JUST the team and all the background infrastructure has to happen behind the scenes, but you get my point.

    Daniel Riciardo having a massive argument with Christian Horner about the crap Renault engine that RedBull have then fucking off to Renault was a bit of a WTF. I like it though, I've really always loved Daniel, he's a really good solid guy a'la Button.

    I wonder how he'll deal with Niko as a team mate.

    That was a real WTF moment for me, but i do understand.
    If you go back to Alonso's run at Renault, you can see that they are very capable of making a winning car.
    They just need time, at first they didn't want to put in that kind of money, but they probably opened up there checkbooks now to try and go for the gold.
    It's rumored that Danny Ric is getting 20million a year renault without bonusses.

    Nico is very strong driver i too am curious how this is gonna go between them,

    He’s come up through the ranks and is a deserved 20 million a year driver if your rumours are true. I know, 20 million is spastic but in this sport, if anyone is earning that sort of money, he should be.

    And oh, Fernando with us. His second go with McLaren hasn’t quite worked for him or us.

    Your thoughts?

    I don't think for a sec he meant it but it still happened. It wasn't Lewis's fault. It could have been considered a driving error but fuck that..
    Him changing the positions and storming off made me hold my head in sheer embarrassment.

    Shit happens. If I fuck up unintentionally within my job, so be it. Whether it my intention or not.
