Seems to me that he did it for the money. Otherwise, he could have stayed at Red Bull and spent some time on the podium this season.

My wife made us watch most of the episodes today (not kidding, she's even more of an F1 fan than me). So far, so good. Lots of good backstory stuff.

As long as the demand for instructors exceeds the supply, there will be a tendency for people to be accepted as instructors who aren’t qualified. If we’re going to set a standard and make it a high...

Part of me has long dreamed of doing serious rock climbing, but it's easy for me to contemplate falling to my death, so the perceived risk level is just too high for me. When I compare with driving...

It's funny how chance events can change the course of our lives.

I'm still interested in a 991.2 GT3RS at MSRP, but have been told that no more allocations are coming. If I was offered an allocation with ADM, I'd pass.
