Trump at the Miami GP
« on: April 29, 2024, 06:59:36 PM »
Seems he's trying to use the race as a fund rassing
event. Hopefully he'll be refunded his money. The race is
bad enough without him being there

I couldn't agree with you more on both counts!

I do not care for Trump, nor do I want to see Formula leveraged for political purposes.  (Although I'm okay the the drivers/teams/FIA using their platform for 'awareness' campaigns)

The Miami Car Park Prix is overpriced and phony as a $3 bill - sounds perfect for "The Donald."  ;)

Maybe someone will throw him in the fake lake.

That's no surprise at all. I've lost my respect for
Lando now. I'd pay a dollar to see trump try to
get in a F1 car.

Maybe I was hasty in not giving trump credit. Beating
Max so soundly makes he wonder if the race wasn't fixed

I figured Liberty would find a way to feature him. They started out creating far right cable networks like the old Faith & Values Channel.

I'm surprised your surprised Dare, Lando comes from a wealthy family. Think his Dad made his money pile in finance & investment, probably a right wing voter if not supporter in Britain.

His money got Lando thru lower categories then an F1 start, mind you Lando had to do the talent bit, but like most in f1 now it's immersion in racing since knee high to a grass hopper that helps.

I doubt Lando had any say in the matter. I'm sure that Liberty  made a point of having "The Biggest Loser" next to whoever won the race. Just like they used to make sure Putin got maximum exposure at the old Sochi circuit.

I guess trump can add this F1 win to all his Club Golf Championships he's won.
