  1. Movember I guess :)

  2. I dont get this new men fashion of beards … Danny m8 you dont need that even if it looks good on you but fernando you look like you are ready to preach in Santa Ferrarina…

    1. I don’t get why so many men shave… I couldn’t.
      But that ? I couldn’t either !

    2. Sometimes I imagine that teams might ban drivers from growing beards. A beard adds weight to the the driver at a position that is far from the bottom of the car. Car designers develop the cars by saving as much extra weight as possible and by keeping the center of gravity as close as possible to the ground, and then drivers grows heavy and weird beards. I wonder though if designers take such beards into consideration when designing the car.

      1. This is why.. thx m8 for this… RB is well known for its ability in Aero so they found 0.003s from this specific shaving from danny.

        Here is what they use in their simulator

      2. If the driver has a mop of hair they will inevitably have a fraction less padding in their custom helmet. Though I doubt it amounts to more than a few grams difference!

    3. I agree. That is just so wrong.

    4. “Danny m8 you dont need that even if it looks good on you”

      It’s called havin a bit of fun.. jeez.

      You know, when in rome and all that…

    5. @bluechris

    It seems that Daniel has been abducted by a Mexican criminal who then took his place.

    1. Lol….:)

    2. I was thinking a singer in a Barber Shop Quartet.

  4. Here’s Fernando testing a 2015 prototype with a canopy:

    Really good build-up and publicity for this event, so much better than the usual PR releases and pics of yet another track walk.

    1. @bullfrog The joke is on Ferrari, when Alonso reports it handles better than the 2014 car, despite their intention to give him some misinformation to give to a rival in 2015.

  5. Nico Hulkenberg – The Hulk
    Daniel Ricciardo – Wolverine

    1. Don’t forget Iceman.

  6. Did Daniel Ricciardo lose a bet or something?

  7. Ricciardo has gone native. He looks like he is ready to defend the Alamo.

    1. Beast mode – Engaged

  8. I like it!

  9. I would say Ricciardo is optimistic that he will be on podium to receive a Stetson cowboy hat to go with his new facial hair.

  10. Haha love you Dan. That’s how my beard grows naturally, it’s the worst thing.

  11. That’s my “it’s hammer time” banner there that Lewis is autographing. #LewisNation, I’m there in his British flat brim cap. He is so good with the fans that he did a spontaneous autograph session that Thursday.
