Well it certainly doesn't look good, but every national newspaper reporting on it certainly isn't helping.

Nicole problems? Wasn't this what was said to be the reason for his poor 2011 season? Expect him to mindlessly drive into someone (probably Massa) in Germany. :p

I don't get Lewis to be honest. He says he idolizes Ayrton Senna and now he ends up drunk with a bunch of sluts. One second he's talking about consistency and keeping a cool head, the other he's goofing off in a hotel, getting drunk.

Don't forget that's only what the papers claim happened.

Also, doesn't he deserve a night off once in a while like everyone else has? He doesn't have to live like a priest.

I see what you mean, but there are tons of ways to have a night off that aren't as explicit. I only hope he goes back to focusing 100% on racing like his 2007/2008 years, because when he's fully dedicated, he's a tough guy to beat.

If the Sauber drivers perform I wouldn't bet against this. Mercedes have again reverted to being mid-field with a mediocre car and have cost themselves a lot of points with poor reliability. Sixth would be a real embarrassment for them.

He's just a kid, in a man's world.

What would you do if you were in your mid twenties, had all the money you ever needed, possibly the coolest job in the world, and some time to kill?

I know what I'd do, I'd date super attractive american singers, go out for dinner in Mayfair, and then hit the town with my pals. Can't blame him at all, all work and no play makes Lewis another robot racer aka, Paul Di Resta. At least the boy has some character!

Guys, what's with the odd podium interviews since Silverstone? Ok, it's certainly great for the fans who are at the track. But there's still an official press conference afterwards, isn't there? Yet they aired only the podium interviews, which is a shame, since tbh they aren't very informative.

No they just do the podium one now.
The only other interviews are the regular driver media pit ones.

They do a press conference as well.

I think having the previous winners' signatures around the podium is pretty cool, but what are they going to do at places like Korea where there are only two previous winners? :lol:

Exactly, and the broadcasters should air it again as they had before Silverstone.

Just remember the first question of Lauda to Alonso on the German podium: how do you feel as a Spaniard, winning the German GP in an Italian car... :roll:: &doh

Completely redundant.
