  1. At first glance, in the Webber and Vergne picture it seemed to me that Jean-Eric was shaking his fist at Webber, but it was just his mirror that I saw…

  2. good bless you @keithcollantine priceless pictures. F1 cars look wicked in this circuit

  3. What’s the story with Petrov and the gator?

    I absolutely love it.

  4. Wow, I really love all the Red Bull photos — something about the lighting (or maybe the saturation of the photos themselves) makes the colors on the car unusually striking.

  5. The new McLaren parts now mean that the MP4-27 rivals Anne Hathaway in the looks department.

  6. Is that a giant Motor-Oil bottle on top of one of the buildings in the pits?

    1. Yes, this race in Hockenheim used to be sponsored by Mobil 1 for a long time until 2008.

  7. What’s with Seb changing his helmet? I don’t recall him winning in Great Britain ;)

    1. I found out this:

      Schumacher Spa 2011 Golden Helmet Starts 24th finish in 5th place
      Vettel Hockenheim 2012 Some gold areas. Starts 3rd , finish in 5th place
      Grosjean Monaco 2012 Some gold areas. Starts 5th DNF

      It would fun to find out more about the golden helmet and the 5th place conspiracy ;D
