Mario got a bit rounder, softer around his face since he isn't racing anymore...

...around his bodily equator, too! lol!

"McLaren-Honda Andretti"

No. Just no. It's still a freaking Dallara.


Alonso roadkilling those birds though.


EDIT: Also disliked how they went how JR won two of it's three victories with McLaren.

I only care about the third in '80 though :langue:

I can't stand the play by play guys they have today. Little or no historical knowledge.

He did 12 lap stints where he got progressively faster.
He was mainly just trying to get comfortable.

I've heard something like he wasn't allowed to go faster than 220 mph in the rookie orientation(thus 219 laps)? He was up into 221 mph later on though.

Johnny Rutherford also said that 1973 qualifying was the first time he had been flat-out for the whole lap.
