Don't know how the race organisers are going to make a buck with no fans present.

Pic is prior to the halo device being mandated by the FIA in 2018....that's why HAM looks like he is totally unprotected (plus, he's probably taken off his belts to raise himself up to be seen on the victory lap)

Well spotted Racerbruce! and you are right about the belts being loosened, you can't move a cm with them on securely.

Mine's fine Racerbruce just sorting out an oil and filter change to do at home as the dealers are either shut or some have a big waiting list for service and today is exactly one year to the day when it was done last.
Trying to get the correct filter removal wrench then I'll start it with the help of my son. Just completing the leather treatment on the CLK with that conditioner we talked about.
Getting nearer to your lawn tractor...

Well done on the oil change! The Red Roadster was due for it's annual oil change at the end of March....I cancelled it due to COVID; i'm only driving 1,200 miles annually, but want to have my tech at eastside bavarian perform the oil change (and new battery replacement and m mobility kit aerosol can); last year's oil change he added a special dye to trace a very small oil leak and want to have them get their special light and see if they can ID the leak.

still waiting on the lawn tractor to arrive; COVID has crashed out most everything, including something like this!
