  1. Ricciardo is awesome but, the shoe drinking was absolutely gross!

    1. He’s Australian. Don’t they do some of the weirdest things? :-)

    2. Imagine the sweat in that shoe after racing 1 hour and a half

  2. Lewis sure locks up a lot doesn’t he?

  3. MAG was sold by the pitcrew with a stupid 2 stop strategi – even a child could see this was a big mistake.. but helped SAI, KVY and MAS, they looked like big stars overtaking him…give MAG a decent car and strategi so he can perform..
