It's ironic that Prost was sacked by Ferrari that same year after that pic was taken.

sadly nobody is surprised. I liked Riccardo with Redbull but it was clear they shafted him so he bounced.

Unfortunately I can’t make the trip to Austin so I have 2x 3 day GA tickets and parking pass for sale. $700 for the lot. Ready for transfer via Ticketmaster if anyone here is interested.

Ah yeah forecasted temps just keep climbing. Mid 90s for Fri & Sat but then a cold front comes through for the race knocking it down to 90 on Sunday. The way this has trended out to be calling for over 100 again by the weekend

Something that Wolff himself wants to forget trying to beat a womans record lap of the 'Ring.

No more Mr Niceguy.
N Rosberg has given advice to Russell about how to handle Hamilton especially after LEW had to admit fault for the Qatar first lap clash that sidelined Hamilton.
Nico added that it was so rare for LEW to admit being at fault and will we now see a colder relationship with those two drivers..
Nico also suggests that without Wolff present the team can 'go to pieces' but I feel with or without him present these things may happen more with RUS not wanting to be the fall guy anymore which is now being put out in the tone of his radio speak.
I think Wolff has a huge headache already brewing with a Senna/Prost type situation that has probably already started whatever Wolff's influence.

Tire blowout at top speed and he's lucky to get out of that but had nerve reactions and a blackout later. He did that of his own accord, why TF was he even allowed to try it ..

It's peculiar why no Porsche & Wolff footage shows the camera images of Wolff's POV recorded at the critical moment that he lost control over the vehicle. The footage switches to Wolff onboard right before he spun off track.

Wolff did the Foxhole flatout. Either he pushed the car's balance over the tipping point and crashed without tire blowout or he misjudged the severe compression capable of puncturing his right rear tire at top speed. Being madly determined to clock a sub 7 minutes time, could have claimed his life. In both scenarios: pilot hubris.

The Foxhole (Fuchsröhre) has a bad reputation for pilot error accidents. Push over the limit in that dauntingly treacherous section and you'll become a passenger of your car.

^ It's funny as I was thinking about that very multi car pile up in the first vid before I even clicked on it.

So the gossip about a potential powerstruggle in RBR continues.
This is from the most gossipy youtubechannel, but it's a very long video:



Maybe there is some truth about it?
It comes from a f1 insider reporter.
I can imagine if Marko's position is in danger, Max will defend Marko and not Horner.
In most mediaexposure what I saw from Max over the years, I think he is very close with Marko and less with Horner.
And Max usually follows his feelings (he doesn't car about money, politics etc; he just wants to race and have a good time); when he talks about Marko, it's always with a joke and a smile.
His manager might advise him to do otherwise though.
But all this is very speculative.
Still very entertaining

Incredible that both Liberty and the FIA tolerate an 80yr old bigot. Liberty says they're all about inclusivity but here's an instance where someone that hangs around RBR (RedBull insists he's not ~their~ employee) has slighted not only the people of Mexico but also the entire continent of South America.
Get him gone.
On a better note...

Let's hope you're right. Of course if there was a struggle for power, they would never officially say that in the media
