  4. For Lotus, Charles Pic was the first driver for the test. Lynn and Occon will share the same seat for the second test.

    Yes, the first crash in F1 for him. But the car was not too damaged.
  5. According to Toro Rosso a problem with the front suspension was the cause of the crash after his 3th lap, i think Max just made sure that the suspension really is damaged.:p

    I am the Pastor Maldonado of RaceDepartment.

    Think I saw this vid a couple of months back...
  8. Front suspension problem you say? Mmmm, it sounds familiar to me...
    • Haha Haha x 1
  9. Yes you're right and I remember now. Sorry for my mistake.
  10. I wish I had 1% of Max's talent... He has a bright future in store.
  11. Quite true. We may mock some of the drivers for their silly mistakes but we wouldn't even be able to take turn properly in these cars. These guys ( and kids ) are on a league of their own, plus most of them have been practicing racing since before they could even walk!
  12. I like the way he carried on trying to steer despite having no front wheels

  13. Yeah. But, well, it's the only thing you have to do in that situation. It's really scary being inside that cockpit with nothing to do more than wait for the car to come to a stop (crashing against the wall in most cases) while repeating "nope, nope, nope" (or all kind of swear words you could think of) in your head.
  14. Did he have a special button on this wheels - EJECT WHEELS
