  • Now either he's got his Mondays mixed up and is playing a late April Fools, - he's mistaken their cocktail bar for the fuel dump in Bahrain's twilight, - or them Red Devils and their supplier Shell have found a new go faster ingredient.

    You choose your own answer:-

    Of course Horner could just have had one too many juices himself.  :tease:

  • Oddly, before the comment about Grapefruit Juice, I was imagining a Ferrari smelling of Piña Colada, it would fit in with Vettel's tash  :D

  • Maybe he can give us a rundown on each team’s fuel aromas.

    Mercedes smells like Bratwurst.  Racing Point smells like Maple Syrup.  Renault smells like baguette.

  • Normally when someone is spouting crazy ideas we'll say "what are they sniffing?"

    Usually it's meant as a rhetorical question without an answer...

  • I wonder if Christian shared this with Geri, early in their relationship .... "Well Geri my Lovely Fluffy Button!! ... it is said that one of the reasons for the ladies being attracted to me, is my talent in sniffing odd chemicals!! .. not so much with Old Spices, but give me an old can of fuel and I'll rock your world!!!!!"

  • Maybe the headline should have been "Horner says Ferrari has Gas & It Stinks."

    Did he check to see if the Ferrari had one of those little, flat Christmas trees hanging from the Halo bar?

  • Yes Dare I do. For the following reasons;

    I support British drivers and teams. Ferrari are neither and haven't had one since Irvine ( I know he is Irish) who I hated too.

    Secondly, being a Hamilton fan, why would I support his rivals??

    Thirdly, they always, always seem to cheat and bend the rules

    Lastly, Schumacher. Need I say more as a British fan??

    Hate is a big word

    Actually it is a small word, in this case used as a verb, with strong meaning.

    It is also a clever word that can act in many different ways.
