Formula 1 Update

As you surely must know, I'm a Ferrari guy.

But you have to tip your hat to McLaren. This is Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton visiting a warehouse full of McLaren F1 cars. Staged, obviously, but still charming. And the way these guys talk about the cars--particularly the sound Hamilton makes while imitating a F1 engine (more like singing than anything else)--well, manomanoman, you just realize that they, as drivers, are operating on a whole different wavelength than you, dear reader, assuming you drive, and me.

Favorite comment? I like it when Button says something along the lines of "look how many of them have ones and twos." F1 cars are numbered to acknowledge their drivers' final standing in the previous season. So the fact that there are a shitload of McLarens sporting "ones and twos" just goes to show you what we, down in Maranello, are up against.

In Rooshia it is cold. In Rooshia we win all Grand Pree. Ferrari will win until the end of the Motherland! Comrade Putin ensures Ferrari victori. The English will not prevail over Mikhail. The KGB ensures it is so.
