Retiring while he's on top, and this way he gets to spend a bit of time with his young daughter while banking a massive bonus for winning the Chsmpionship. Can hardly blame him.

Didn't see that coming.

Also, Massa comes out of retirement to carry on driving for Williams

Last couple have been monumentally dull. At least there appears to be a modicum of competition this year.... Even if it will mostly be decided in the pit lane.

It does appear that overtaking is going to be an issue. Still, WEC :hyper:

The f1 snoozefest. They need to introduce weapons like in death race 2000. And co drivers. And points for running people over.

Not F1 bit nearly a massive shock in the Le Mans after an LMP2 car came close to winning.... only to be overtaken in the final hour by the remaining LMP1 car that was in last after four hours...

I did my googling anyway... slightly disappointed that it is a slightly different Le Mans car... I had images of a solar powered ford fiesta winning Le Mans.

Blackbat did you watch the finish? How the British Aston Martin team took the GT Pro classification on the vey last lap after hours of incredibly close racing. Was just phenomenal. Literally 24 hours of racing on the line in a few corners.

Haven't seen the end yet, the lower classes are always way more exciting than the main prototype class though. Not least cause they aren't half made up of Toyotas that just break.
