Every time Jolyon Palmer doesn't have a drive for next season he finishes in the top six.

So he's going to rack up a nice pot of points in the coming races... and then he'll be scooped up by Williams.

This car is on sale in Sweden. It's a 2006 BMW Sauber driven by Nick Heidfeld. BUY IT. 9 million SEK, that's about 1.1 million dollars.

Probably wouldn't buy it even if I won the EuroMillions jackpot, and seeing as I don't actually play the lottery that makes it doubly unlikely.

In another life, Lewis Hamilton is working at a store selling air conditioning units

Here's an incredible fact for you:

The last season to NOT feature a driver who at one point in their F1 career partnered Michael Schumacher was 1976. In 1977, young gun Riccardo Patrese debuted in Formula 1. In 1993, he drove a Benetton alongside Michael. Since then, a long list of drivers have driven alongside Michael Schumacher. With Massa retiring and Rosberg no longer in F1, no 2018 will have partnered Schumacher in F1. Of course, Vettel has competed with the Michael in Race of Champions so we've got that going for us. Which is nice.

A forty-year span of Schumacher linkage... that is fairly incredible.

Of course, linkage can be traced to Max Verstappen through his dad so if you count next of kin then the era of Schumacher links is not yet over.

Then again, Nico Rosberg may return to F1 in 2019 if some whispers are to be believed, so we shall see.

I hope he doesn't bother, there's plenty of new talent out there scrapping over the few available seats.
