Well said EdM5 -

This is something most of us have always thought but never communicated - well done.

When Nige won the 92 F1 WDC he came to the US to compete in Indy Car in 93; I attended the Portland, Oregon race and his iconic helmet livery (even his transporters had this helmet on the sides); I met him in the pits and was wearing a Williams Constructors t-shirt and a Williams F1 hat....he just looked at me for a moment and smiled and then he signed my hat....I'll never forget meeting him.

Side note; that summer we went to Whistler Ski Resort that is north of Vancouver, British Columbia and while at poolside, I set the hat down on the deck....didn't notice but pool water got my hat wet and the iconic signature was now just a blur....

Nige qualified on pole and Emmo won the race; Nige won the Indy Car Championship in his first yr with Indy Car.

The latest according Helmut Marko : "We haven't turned up the engine yet" Marko told Motorsport-Magazin.

The best from MAX has yet to come !
Food for thought my friend..neither of Max's two wins here came from being on P1.

well done Max for taking the pole.. he was clearly faster and deserved to start the race on pole tomorrow.. :clap

cars were looking like there werent much left to squeeze out from as Merc's side.. tomorrows race can be closer than the quali probably..

well done for Norris as well that he is doing magic comparing what Ricciardo is able to do this weekend..

Alpha Tauris are fast as well that new Honda engine pays its dividends powerwise.. but i hope Tsunoda gets a penalty or something for staying on the very racing like just before braking on a downhill part of the track..

Congrats to VER on P1....HAM off by 2 and 1/4 tenths....race pace will be interesting and we'll see if tire strat and short or long stints on a set of tires plays into tomorrow's win

There are just as much die hard HAM fans here.
They're just a little bit more quiet as of lately.....

I think it's going to be a very close race tomorrow, so I expect lots of breathtaking action
