If this is true then maybe Max will get to ruffle some feathers at the front hehe watch out Vettel hehe

I don't want to be a party pooper, but let's see when all the "hype talk" stops and the action on track starts.  From early reports I've caught around the Motorsport web in the last couple of weeks, Honda's early prep has been far from smooth, so let's see how it all comes together during pre season testing.

Best Regards,
Cal :)

Itís a Honda, so party mode could also be a detonation button.

I do not believe anything Marko says plus, based on recent history, Honda's party mode will probably end with bangs and fireworks  :D

Damn, Scott beat me by about 15seconds! About the distance Mercedes will be ahead of RBR after one lap  :D

I agree Dare, I have lost any interest in Red Bull now Danny Ricciardo has gone so I hope they have a terrible, McLaren/Williams like season with engine failures aplenty.  We already know at least one driver will have multiple incidents during races though! 

It would be kind of amusing to see a Danny Ricciardo photoshop of him going 'chuck another shrimp on the barbie' whilst standing next to a smoking Red Bull Honda next year (Apologies for the stereotyping!)

I kinda like that Red Bull keep Merc & Ferrari honest, and often bring new ideas to the grid.
I also like the possibility now that they will mix up quali more. 
I just don't want them to have the best chassis and engine.  :nono:

Thankfully the noises from other parties suggest that Honda may well manage a party mode but are unlikely to able to run long on full beans in the races.
Something about unsolved vibrations from ICE at higher revs,
apparently.  :D

I've done some digging and now know what RBR/Honda's party move involves.

Max and Pierre can press the "Party Mode" button ĺ way through a race, where a crackly pre-recording of Spanish Dance Music and a selection of Fernando's GP2 lyrics accompany the performance.  It's good for morale!!  :D

.. and if things go terribly wrong, I'm sure something along the lines of Luke's suggestion, with maybe "Smoke on the Water" comes over the radio at venues like Monaco!!  :D :D

Personally, if I can witness one single race this season, where Danny Ric passes a "smoking Max" ... my season is a happy one!!


Best Regards,
Cal :)

I have no love for RBR at all but a part of me hopes that you are all wrong and the "party button" does work. My ONLY reason for hoping this is.....
If RBR do so badly and Horner needs a few extra quid I am very scared he will send his wife out singing again. No one needs to suffer that again  :o :nono: :nono:

Right now, it's just a bad dream, but it could turn into a nightmare if a Spice Girls reunion alters a race start time, to coincide with the start of a concert!!  ;) :nono:
