  25. Nico is finally understanding how to lead a train of cars around the track.

    It is a recording booth so Lewis can sing and record his music where ever he goes and even it is soundproof so no one would hear him.

  49. Shall I push this button? This is the camera I secretly set up in Lewis’s rest room, I wanted to see if he played F1 video games or had erotic sex.
