      He need to step aside and let a younger driver have a crack at it. He has become insufferable imho. Fred Alonso has totally outclassed him in every way..

    4. I dunno button had a good drive in Austria.

    5. I believe this foreign object may have entered while he was doing something other than driving. Because if it entered while driving, what’s the point of having a visor?
