As for the extreme temperatures at the company :
During the heat waves from last year we got also extreme temperatures inside of the company , wich is normal because we run with 60 injection molding machines . Like I said the hotrunners (heating in the front-mold) of these run with temperatures between 335 and 400° Celsius .
And that's really hot . We have a big AC . But there are too much heat sources in the production .
Once the heat during heat waves is too hot (above 35°C) we get every hour extra breaks from 10 min.
We are also daily supplied with ice cream in the freezer (no joke) to get some extra cooling .
Of course we have also several locations with drink water fountains .
Last year we saw in Belgium a few days temps from 44°Celsius (shadow-temp.) Crazy !
While I had to work in PM/Shift

Picture from the AC-Display at the company , last year during the first heat wave in Belgium .
Second heat wave was a lot hotter and showed us almost 50°C on this display !
Glad you spent your time well and celebrated Mothers Day

You are spot-on; as in every sport, the reign of the supreme will be challenged and the de-throning of the supreme is imminent!

And without question, Max is the greatest threat to the current reign!

THIS.IS.CRAZY.
it's so very strange when one of these occurs in an area that is not normally experiencing tornadoes!

It's just what F1 needs to stop the rot,someone who challenges LH on the track together with some 'boxing talk'..you know when the two come face to face before a fight.. something what you sometimes get in NASCAR! Max is the man for that!!!!

Official: "Ferrari confirm Vettel will leave after 2020 season" !

=> https://www.racefans.net/2020/05/12/...r-2020-season/

“My relationship with Scuderia Ferrari will finish at the end of 2020,” said Vettel in a statement issued by the team.

“In order to get the best possible results in this sport, it’s vital for all parties to work in perfect harmony. The team and I have realised that there is no longer a common desire to stay together beyond the end of this season.”

Good morning my friend, hope that tornado has dispersed.
There are changes in every team and unfortunately it was sometimes self inflicted by Seb on himself which has brought on self doubt. Probably a decision he made at home with the family as it should be.

*News just in my friend,95000 ninety five thousand people entered UK during Coronavirus lockdown and now our gov.has hinted taxes will go up to fund their "muppet show' response to this pandemic.
It's just what hardworking people that have been on austerity measures for years were dreading from this laughable 'wrong action from the start' bunch.

My UK M5 friend -
He'll land a ride in the MB when Lewis leaves for The Prancing Horse!

COVID has caused deliveries to be slower than normal - so the grass tractor won't arrive until 27 May....so I'm still using the small power mower to mow 10,000 ft2 in the front and 8,000 ft2 in the back!!!! It's freaking exhausting!

My UK M5 friend -
So very tragic, especially the needless loss of life due to improper action(s) by govt leaders....the US Bozo the Clown has totally hosed the COVID management and continues to do so - no federal govt leadership - it's left up to the states which creates 50 states fighting each other for goods and services - it's tragic.

These are crimes against humanity - and should be treated as such.

Always worth waiting up for my friends even if it is late here.
How long do you think Todt will hang on to keep being FIA chief,I think he should have retired sometime ago, he looks terrible there.
