Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen take a trip down memory lane, bet regret is strong in Singapore and Sky Sports F1’s David Croft provides one of the best commentary lines of the season. Yes, really.
Sponsor adverts involving drivers can often lead to our toes curling due to the high amount of cringe levels, but there was no danger of that happening when this particular video was released ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix race weekend.

It’s very difficult not to laugh when Ricciardo is around. Putting him next to Lando Norris in the press conference (again) was only going to end one way.

The dangers of betting
Getting laughs for very different reasons are those who put themselves forward for ridicule with bets and dares. Pain manifested itself in two distinct ways in Singapore…

It appears the Reddit user in question is going to stick to their promise.

We will overlook the fact the bread is in fact sliced and could have easily been made to look as if it had been eaten. We will give them the benefit of the doubt and hope they had a very full stomach.
Feel Good Inc
Now to the headline matter in hand and it warmed our hearts to see two multiple World Champions have so much respect for each other. Could be different if the title was on the line of course, but at least we get moments like this.
On reverse grid races…

Another wholesome Lewis Hamilton moment came after he accidentally broke a fan’s phone in the paddock area on his way to the garage.
Usually phones lose value when they break or smash. Not when Hamilton signs it though…
Any other business
Got seven minutes to spare? The correct answer is yes because this lap-by-lap comparison with former team-mates Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo is TV gold.
Valtteri Bottas’ weekend was one to forget for him. He couldn’t even have his usual cup of coffee in peace…

It is also nice to see Rich Energy are taking the break-up with Haas well.

And it’s good to see that ‘silly season’ is still alive and kicking…
Haas retained Grosjean as they where told by Ferrari to back off Hulk
Ferrari have a performance clause in their contract with Vettel that allows them to terminate at the end of the season.
Ricciardo is first choice to partner Leclerc with Hulk second

Now that is a stretch.
Over to you Crofty…
"Nico Hulkenberg's girlfriend is here, and she's here to help her man get on top of Daniel Ricciardo"
That may be the best Crofty quote ever.
