Greetings my UKM5 and MBelgium friends!

It appears the % chance of rain at start of race and end of race is pretty low....what is your "read" on the weather??

Perhaps if MBelgium opens his windows @ home he can listen to the F1 cars!

I see on the coverage they have pulled down the stand we were sitting in and have replaced it with some other structure.

I see it as Dan will get around La Source in third, slipstream Bottas up the Kemmel and overtake him up into Les Combes, elbows out and finish second. Sounds like a plan to me!

Easy!

Max should make The Dutch proud today but Lewis will take it if there are no crashes don't think anyone will dispute that. Max is the most Dutch person I've ever seen, he's nuts.

"Walking through the Spa-Francorchamps paddock, F1 journalists Will Buxton and Lawrence Barretto were talking about the various teams and drivers ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix weekend.

Spotting Verstappen, Buxton decided this would be a good time to talk about the Red Bull driver with Verstappen saying “don’t talk about me”.

Replying that they would talk about him a bit, Verstappen asked: “What do you want to say?”

He answered his own question: “Max is a Dutch ****** and I don’t know what he is doing.”

Yeah my friend .
If no rain , It's all about the first T1 => "La Source"
MAX knows if he wants a close battle with Ham . He will dive into La Source and in front of BOT !
But ...BOT can get Toto's team orders ....And push on his brakes !

Umm that was Verstappen being quoted lol. Verstappen said “Max is a Dutch ****** and I don’t know what he is doing.” He drives for the Netherlands and calls himself Dutch. He's explained this countless times, that he was just born in Belgium but considers himself Dutch and races for the Netherlands. I see this a lot in England with footballers for example Michael Owen born in Wales but played for England. You don't see the welsh still trying to claim him ha.

Max says something like this every time the Belgian media claim him...

He may live in Belgium and travel on a Belgian passport but Max told Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblad last year: ‘I have lived in Belgium my entire life, but I consider myself more Dutch. ‘As a result of my karting activities I spend more time with my father than with my mother. I’m always surrounded by Dutchmen.’



Anyway point is; his sense of humor is so Dutch, i work with 2 Dutch guys and at first you would hate them because of their sense of humor seems so rude but after you get to know them you realize they are being playful. I call one of them Max and the other Verstappen. Both are big fans vs. me being a Hammer fan.

As his father ex-F1 driver Jos is Dutch and has massive fan following from Holland (the orange army)? then it's probably the reason he sort of calls himself Dutch

To be honest he earned it. Remember the days when the Todt/Brawn power duo ruled F1. If your drivers dominate the track you can dominate off-track.
