    This should make Sven forget about Bryce crashing his car. At least he didn't drive his car into the Pacific.

    My guess is Yazeed got trapped on the flat by that berm and tried to make a run for it through the surf.

    Cooling is an issue, vapor lock seems to be the real struggle.

    I think I read somewhere a closed system is what is causing the issues, but I could be mistaken. That and fuel quality.

    In Mexico city 2 weeks ago I could immediately feel the altitude. I can only imagine doubling that. 7600 ft is 0.75 atmospheres, 14000 is .59 atmospheres...A lot less O2 at that level.

    For all you kids following along a check book is like an analog debit card from the olden days...

    F1 has been pretty bad about a few of the big spenders dominating and the governance structure largely supporting that. With new owners of the commercial rights (something like a promoter) they're looking to change that. What makes it worse in F1 is the purse structure is such that a few of the top teams get a much bigger chunk of the money regardless of how well they do.

    To be honest, I haven't watched in quite some time. I sometimes watch the really old stuff on Youtube though. Those boys from the old times were legends and totally fearless!

    I agree. Btw, I’m setting up a free fantasy f1 league for RDC. I’ll post about it in pavement later.

    Daniel Elena reported fracture of the coccyx, that's why Loeb had to quit the race...

    How did he break his tailbone??? The news I've seen so far seems to indicate that he jut hurt trying to get the car unstuck... Did he get hit or run over when trying to get the car unstuck????

    I was under the impression it was from going splat into the crater while in the car - could be wrong though?

    They said his sternum and he is favoring his chest in one of the videos.. but it does make sense about anything over 30km I guess.
