Haas of the Viking King
K-Mag decided he’d rather duel in the desert Haas than win the IMSA Bo-diddly-Idaho Raceway 6 Hours. An incredible fifth on his comeback.
Ferrari is back!
The Scuderia scores a resounding1-2 in Bahrain. It turns out that if it looks fast, it really is fast.
F1 on the up

Fourteenth and 15th in the opener and even golden boy Lando Norris is warning of “pain” this season…
Dad, where’s my car?
Aston tech head Tom McCullough said the AMR22 it brought to testing was “nothing like” the car back in the windtunnel. Sounds like a truckie’s nightmare – picked up the wrong car?
Drivers are being so shaken to the core by cars bouncing down the straights, it’s surprising Formula 1hasn’t announced a new bobblehead partner yet.
Reverse FIA ferret
FIA (thankfully) compromises on Hamilton gala fine, then produces a report admitting Masi naffed up in Abu Dhabi after all. Funny, we thought it was all the fans’ fault
