    Columbians fuck donkeys. Apparently, Venezooaliens stopped fucking goats to steal them & eat them instead:

    http://www.weaselzippers.us/269858-how-bad-is-it-in-venezuela-soldiers-are-stealing-goats-to-eat/

    Over the weekend, six members of the Venezuelan military were detained by local authorities for stealing goats, the Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional reported Sunday. It said the soldiers confessed to stealing the goats and said they did it to feed themselves, since they had no food left in their barracks.

    When i said "enjoy goats" is that they prefer women over goats, unlike the towelheads!

    Force India took fourth and fifth places today. Is that the highest they've ever been in a race?

    I think doghouse was hoping the finish order would be Raikkonen, Vettel, Bottas and/or Ricciardo

    I know. Just pointing out that it was unrealistic. Every other team (especially Mercedes) would have done the same, BTW.

    "The controversial incident between Hamilton and Vettel happened as they prepared for the re-start after the second safety car period. Vettel ran into the back of Hamilton as he accelerated out of Turn 15, the penultimate corner, damaging his front wing. The German then pulled alongside Hamilton's Mercedes and drove into it, banging wheels. Vettel told his team over the radio that he believed Hamilton had deliberately slowed, saying: 'He brake-tested me. What the hell is going on?' Hamilton told his Mercedes engineers: 'Vettel literally just came alongside me and hit me.'"

    Love it.. Hamilton playing the innocent here.

    Lance Stroll is Canadian. Haven't seen a Canadian get on the podium in ages. That should make the Montreal race interesting.

    "After the race, Hamilton was asked why he was so strong at Silverstone. 'Because I own it,' he replied, before breaking out into laughter.

    Keen to expand his ever-growing statistical achievements, he took his 67th pole position - only one short of Michael Schumacher's all-time record - and equalled legends Jim Clark and Alain Prost's tally of five British Grand Prix victories."

    Cheeky response. He's better than Schumacher?

    Anyone else see Kubica trying to make a comeback? Always liked him but I didn't know his career ended so early.

    Lewis Hamilton: Why the all-time F1 great shines above the numbers

    All-time great? What?!

    "The race that finally clinched it was a bit messy, through no fault of his own, but the season in which Lewis Hamilton won his fourth world title has underlined his status as one of Formula 1's all-time greats."

    ...oh...oooooone of the all time greats.

    He says he can get in and out of an F1 car and drive with it. I read an article he was driving test models for some team.
