Those results look familiar...

I like that the Mercedes Factory Team has chosen to violate the standard convention of "the star and the wing man". It got boring when Schumaker was winning every race for a few years, when Button was winning every race for a few years, when Hill was winning every race for a few years. It's not and Ham and Nico don't like each other. It's that they are both alpha dogs who want to win, the both have a green light to go out and try to win every race, short of running one another off the track, so the competition between them ensures that the team is going to come out on top.

Porsche has won back-to-back 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Toyota was in the lead with one lap to go. Here's what happened.

Great race, Brdmom!

Apparently, Ferrari hasn't been sitting on its hands this off season. Great win to start the season.

Thought it was hilarious watching Toto Wolff banging his fist on the desk after Seb took the lead, and Lewis couldn't get around Max.

Lewis mentioned during the days before the race, with the changes to the cars, it was going to be harder to pass. Guess he was right.
