    Ownership Verified: Another Tesla lurking in the shadows...

    I grew up knowing about schmutz; benefits of grandparents who spoke Yiddish and parents who understood it.

    That was a heck of a race. I'm really looking forward to the season. It's a shame Race Control instructed RB to give the spot back when I've seen people on Twitter showing Hamilton going wide in turn four 29 times during the race... yikes. But I guess they told him to stop and rules take effect...

    You Want to Know the Real Pierre?

    Meanwhile, knowing what we know, his demotion from Red Bull is what kept his seat in F1 while Albon is off to drive DTM. So after that compelling read, perhaps he who laughs last laughs hardest. Also he who finishes first in his Toro Rossa has a trophy and he who keeps crashing his Red Bull doesn't.

    Was it Alpine that said they're doing most of their cooling from the airbox and not so much cooling from the side pods?

    Alright! Testing is over. McLaren looked quick, Ferrari looked less slow, and Bottas admitted that once again Mercedes is sandbagging and playing the "oh, we're not sure we're the ones to beat anymore" card at the same time! How are we feeling about our favorite teams and drivers? Also, Drive...

    Unverified Ownership 2005 Subaru Outback

    Hmmm... looks like it could use an EJ257. That should fix the dent.

    Their tweet made it sound like it's a temporary livery for the winter.

    Hmmm, looks like I can't update my first post anymore. Is there anyway to do that so I can keep the calendar up to date? Seeing as it went all sorts of bonkers today.

    Pre-season testing is currently rumored (reported on my Twitter feed by Luke Smith) to have been moved to Bahrain. Additionally, Lando Norris just announced he tested positive for COVID-19 while on holiday in Abu Dhabi ahead of a "planned training camp," he and McLaren have both announced.

    Sniped! I was looking at my calendar and thought it be nice to have a schedule in the opening post. Thanks for reminding me about the TBC race; I'll put that in the list too.

    Well, hopes can come true. Russell driving for Mercedes this weekend with a 1st timer taking his Williams seat. Meanwhile, Mick has been confirmed for Haas next year, Romain has been released from the hospital, and Haas is giving someone else an F1 debut in Romain's car this weekend. Should be a...

    So much news today, but first, I'm so happy to see that Grosjean is doing well. That Halo is an absolute life saver. So, we have a new driver at Haas, a world champion with COVID, and who is going to take his seat? Vandoorne is the likely choice, but I keep hoping for George Russell, to be honest.

    Unverified Ownership My winter beater!

    Well, it certainly makes me nostalgic for my 5-speed 2.5i hatch. Have fun and try not to slide sideways into any curbs when pretending to be a WRC driver in the snow. ... not that I have any experience in that. Nope. None whatsoever. Okay I totally did that and needed to replace half my rear...

    Well, that was a race now wasn't it? Despite a Hamilton win, I couldn't turn away for a single lap. Wow wow wow. Though I call "crap excuse" on Racing Point's 5-tweet-long explanation for why Lance Stroll had tire issues.

    If I were Haas I’d try to get Perez over Mazepin because of his ability to help the engineers with a car. They’re both pay drivers, essentially.

    George Russell staying at Williams. Alfa Romeo staying with their lineup in 2021. Looks like there are three potentially open seats for four drivers: two at Haas and one at Red Bull with Perez, Hulkenberg, Schumacher, and Mazepin as the front runners.
