@ F1 owes a lot to @LewisHamilton. 10 years ago felt I was the only F1 fan in the whole of the USA! Now every celeb wants to hang with him!

Ricciardo on the bodged pit stop: "I felt like a spare dick at a wedding." Doesn't want to hear excuses. Just wants to get out of here.

On this day in F1
Marc Surer’s F1 career was ended by a dreadful crash in the Hessen Rally on this day 30 years ago. It also claimed the life of his co-driver Michel Wyder who was trapped in the burning car.
Surer was thrown clear when he crashed his Ford RS200. He suffered a pelvis fractures, 11 broken bones in his legs and second-degree burns, particularly to his right wrist. The Arrows driver spent two weeks in a coma and required skin grafts and a total of 41 blood transfusions during his recovery.
