I like the 'Food Bank Donation' box there and I'm glad to see RBR are doing their bit for the less well off.
I must make a visit to their place sometime and I'm not a million miles away from Milton Keynes.
Do I have to book in advance or can I just turn up..

You can come in and see the trophies and the car on the wall pretty much anytime. We have security on the gates now who may not let you through in your car unless you are booked in. You can park up and walk through though as most visitors do when they come to visit us.

If it's so wet then it can't really be called racing as in its meaning other than just trying to stay on the track, a tricky one for Domenicalli and Isola

Did RBR not want to risk a crash when Max eventually overtakes Perez on track if normal proceedings are followed - that's a good point. If they let their lead driver pit first, Max pits next lap, charges past Perez later, Perez tries to fight. That is risky business. So just make the plan to swap them in the pits before this happens.
Seen afterwards the undercut was useless , there was one lap where MAX was 3 sec./lap faster than Checo .
Over 3 laps , MAX was 8 sec. faster ! That's why he closed the gap very easily..
Even when MAX had to start at P10 , he won this race anyway ...

Update regarding Ricciardo :

It wasn't a clean fracture (too bad)! so a surgery was required for RIC .
He will be at least 6-7 weeks out .
I wish him a speedy recovery ..=> https://racingnews365.nl/tegenslag-v...nde-twee-races

Max's trophies are better off there secure with the RB guys guarding them, especially in view the attempted theft of trophies from there some time back.
Max's pad in Monaco isn't the best place for them...especially the ceramic ones

Poor Daniel and it's not pleasant when the cast comes off, I know myself when the cast came off my healed left broken wrist years back.

Majority of those trophies were replicas luckily. We got the real ones tucked away safely.

Just as well with what happened before, the thieves ram crashed the front doors at night if my memory serves me well.

Marko is asked if Alex Albon, Williams driver and former teammate of Verstappen, is now ready for a Red Bull seat, he replies: "He was always ready to drive alongside Max. Alex has improved a lot."

As said in the clip it's something that's been done by Max for years and is now second nature to him.
