    So, what are your recent acquisitions?

    I was happy to find a couple bottles of Blanton's yesterday.

    I wouldn't rule out Red Bull trying to poach Ocon. I'm interested to see how things play out with Bottas at the end of the season if he contends for a championship this year. Valtteri's "To whom it may concern" comment could have been directed at doubters in general, but could it have been aimed at Toto and the wingman comment? Bottas is only signed through the season with an option for 2020.

    Bottas had a way better start than Hamilton. Bottas had better pace than Hamilton the entire race. Bottas stayed out for a long time on his softs, and was churning out fastest lap after fastest lap. Hamilton's early pit strategy to cover Vettel probably hindered Hamilton. He lost more pace while running the medium tires, but he wasn't going to catch Bottas anyway. All credit to Bottas, he was a man on a mission. In my opinion, floor damage on Hamilton's car or not, Bottas wasn't going to be beaten by anyone. I know the season is long. Ferrari better find some pace and Gasly's qualifying strategy better improve, or Red Bull and Ferrari are going to be an afterthought for the Constructors Championship.

    I'm hoping that this is the year that Haas starts pushing for podiums. Both Magnuson and Grosjean have shown good speed. Now if the team can figure out how to torque a wheel nut without cross threading it...

    I feel the same. I want to see competition. Yesterday, Bottas was untouchable. Verstappen can keep pace to a degree, but in order to keep pace he is on the edge of control. What Ferrari demonstrated yesterday is that they need to go back to the drawing board. The speed "advantage" they had at Catalunya in testing evaporated quickly in race conditions. Right now I'd rather watch the mid pack. That is where the competition lies currently.

    Exactly right. Binotto apparently forgot when he said that Vettel and Leclerc would be allowed fight each other on the track. How quickly that changed. Ferrari better figure something out pretty quick if they expect to challenge Mercedes and Red Bull.

    What's in your glass today?

    The first 2019 release of Barrel proof is really good if you get the chance to pickup a bottle.

    I watched FP1 and FP2. I think this year is going to be incredibly competitive especially in the mid pack. Was Ferrari sandbagging it? I don't know. After watching the fast laps of Mercedes and Ferrari. The silver arrows were more hooked up. They looked twitchy and fast in the corners. Ferrari wasn't attacking the course like Mercedes. On Vettel's fast lap, he missed apexing corners more than once and definitely didn't take the 11/12 high speed chicane with the aggressiveness of Hamilton or Bottas. I think the car wasn't dialed into the track more than they were sandbagging it. The midfield looks strong. Kimi in the Alpha, Haas, Racing Point, and Toro Rosso have all put up good times. Williams sadly is a train wreck. I'm stoked for FP3 and Qualifying. I think it's going to be a very competitive year.

    4 - 6 months is the estimated time frame. I'll get a CT scan around the 5 month mark. Hopefully everything is fused at that point. Until the fusion process is complete I am unable to partake.

    Hello everyone, I've been lurking the forum for a couple of months. I'm 43 and have enjoyed cigars for many years. That said, I currently am not able to partake in smoking any cigars. Long story short...3 level vertebral fusion, nicotine hinders bone growth...blah, blah, blah. So I guess joining a cigar fellowship while recovering must serve me some sort of masochistic pleasure. Anyway, I look forward to contributing to the forum. There are several topics I've found that are right in line with my interests. Cheers
