    If I was Bottas the last thing i would do is throat punch that tight as german who is named after a dog right in the cocksucker on my way out the door.

      But seriously Toto, when are you going to let Bottas go? It was so much more fun, when you had two strong drivers.

                                              I sometimes think it be one hell of a twist if Vettel leaves Ferrari and join Mercedes. I know... sounds crazy and impossible. But I like to wonder if something like this would ever happen. A Lewis and Vettel team would be a killer combo.
