    It's probably already broken, which is why they're letting him near it...

    I was, actually. But that was a looong time ago now - there's plenty I could do in 2008 that i'd struggle with now, it's the same for ol' Felipe.

    Felipe's head was a different shape in those days.

    On a less ghoulish note, he Williams is looking really good and given the chance I expect to see Felipe at least on the podium a couple of times this year. The odds of a win depend on Mercedes metronome like reliability and how chaotic Red Bull and Ferrari are this season. I don't see it happening really.

    As long as he blast Stroll into the weeds.

    Having a bit of suspension bounced off your head will do that to you... Massa was never quite the same driver after that...

    However if the Williams is competitive, we may see a '**** it, i've nothing to lose...' charge from Massa.

    "It's no deck chair, but it'll do..."

    I love Fernando, I'm so glad he got through his diva phase.

    Probably still set a faster lap than Stroll.
    Speaking of disaster who do you think will be first to crash out this year attempting to overtake? I'm willing to exclude first corner chaos in Australia from that.
    My money is on Verstappen or Kyvatt getting it horribly wrong

    I'll be the first to play the game...

    First...

    ...Crash - Stroll
    ...Engine blowup - McHonda/Alonso
    ...Radio Meltdown - Alonso or Vettel
    ...Botched pit-stop - Ferrari
    ...to get engine penalties - McHonda
    ...to hint/admit 2017 is a write-off - Renault or Williams
    ...to bitch about Verstappen's driving - Kimi

    First...

    ...Crash - Stroll (Damage beyond repair by Qualifying)
    ...Crash during a race - Kyvatt
    ...Engine blowup - McLaren (at the current rate they won't make it through Friday practice)
    ...Radio Meltdown - Vettel
    ...Botched pit-stop - Mercades
    ...to get engine penalties - McLaren
    ...to hint/admit 2017 is a write-off - McLaren/Force India
    ...to bitch about Verstappen's driving - Riccardo tho it will be in a very jolly passive way

    Based on previous years will Alonso make it through the first race weekend uninjured?

    Mclaren have already beaten them both to it.

    First to retire/get sacked: Alonso or Kvyatt by the sixth round.

    McHonda don't count... They wrote off 2017 in 2015
