At first I thought it 'was' a ski slope brrr it looks really cold there.
Over here it's warmed up some, we had a smattering of snow one morning which melted away after a few hours but of course the rain is now on it's way

This thread is interesting. It reminds me of when LH and Alonso were team mates. I had a co-worker who was insistent that LH's success was due to Alonso sharing data with LH's side of the garage. Seven world championships later, people are still minimizing, downplaying, discounting what LH brings to the table.
Should Ferrari have dumped Schumi at his prime because the success was down to the car and any other drive would do?
Even if LH is holding out for more money, if not now (when he is in his prime) when?

Damn is going for a ride restricted in Belgium? I take the M4 out almost every day, just to relax a little bit from WFH.
No Corona risk. I mean, I don't stop, only for gas. And I pay for gas outside at the terminal.

Btw, the Ardennes roads are glorious indeed.

We were restricted over here . Even for the road to the company , I had to show papers that my job is essential .
Meanwhile the company had to sign already 3 papers . I've been pulled over by the police and more than once .
Won't take unnecessary risks . At the company I'm already full time at risk ...
We already got several sick people . Quarantine and the whole stuff , ect..
6 people died in my neighbourhood .That's why I'm thinking twice ...

The whole situation isn't looking good . The vaccines will protect us only 2-3 months by the Covid mutations .
Ain't no good !

Ardennes ? That's for sure . Love it . I'm also used to swim in the Lake of Bütgenbach .

I think Daniel being ahead of Verstappen on points until he had 6 DNFs in the last 13 races of the 2018 season would make anyone look for a different team.
