We start with a review/overview of the changes to the 2016 grid from cars to drivers to the power units behind them. A refresher for those familiar, and a primer for those who aren't.
Getting closer to 2016 testing and Australia, more and more details are beginning to emerge on the changes to the "power units" for this season. Are Mercedes REALLY afraid of Ferrari? Have Honda actually unlocked 223bhp? Are they still size-zero? What kind of reliability upgrades have Renault managed to homologate this year?
And TOKENS HAVE BEEN ABOLISHED for 2017!
So Lewis Hamilton, since 2008, has been fighting, has sued, and has won a case brought against the Government of his home country of Grenada by his own company Time Burke Holdings over the ownership of a prime piece of land on the Grand Anse Beach, one of the best in the world. Doesn't wrap up with the happy ending that you might expect from such a 'fun' guy...
Way too much to summarize in a paragraph, unfortunately, but a very interesting story which sheds a different colour of light on Formula 1's current World Driver's Champion.
Couple of strange side stories. WHY did Lewis Hamilton learn to ride a unicycle? How much neck exercise is required to drive a Formula 1 car? (A lot)(enough to crack walnuts with your neck - actually). Jay-z smiles more than Lewis. And a thermal-imaged video of the Red Bull F1/Rugby scrum from last week.
