Really speaks to how little F1 means to the Chinese if they have never seen a woman sprayed with champagne at a motorsport event. Funny that China is championing women's rights... :lol3

Nico's argument that LH should help his race is inane. Didn't expect him to pussy out so soon. Cracks already well established in NR before we even hit stride into the new season.

Always wanted a 640 paintshaker but opted for the Husky 630; better suspension, not a paintshaker - no numb fingers..., good for long runs... If I want ADV range plenty of aftermarket tanks for cheap.
