The decal work alone on this Lego Ferrari F1 car is amazing

Lego master builder Sariel admits to not being much of a Formula 1 fan, but you wouldn’t know it looking at his replica of the Ferrari 248 F1 car that drivers like Michael Schumacher raced back in 2006.

Did Mercedes Violate The Rules On F1 Team Radio Instructions In Canada?

One thing that was made clear when Formula One banned teams from relaying certain kinds of information to their drivers was that comparative information about a teammate was not to be shared. “Lewis, Nico is safe on fuel—safe on fuel—but a little bit more critical on brakes,” seems like it might bend this rule, no? » 6/08/15 9:20am 6/08/15 9:20am

Pastor Maldonado has had an admittedly terrible season thus far, having to retire for five out of six races through little fault of his own. Many remember the garbage days of yore, though, so let’s take a journey back through time to battle evil cyborgs from Cyberdyne watch Maldonado’s most facepalm-worthy hits.
