Re: Why do you support who you support?

I'm a Williams supporter because as kid Nigel Mansell was the driver that I supported back then in the 80s and 90s.

I support Lewis Hamilton because he is from the British Isles, but if there was a Scot in F1 then I would support them first and foremost.

Re: Silly season 2018

What Di Resta has in favour is Mercedes backing also working for Skysports F1 from the PR side might have done him some favours and being also the Williams reserve driver has been a good move for
Di Resta that might help him get the 2nd Williams seat which I think he has a good shout of getting.
