cool, i eat dinner friday nights with Sir Moss's walk of fame marker stone looking at me from eight feet away ...

Listed below are the drivers who have been honored, the date they were inducted, the location of their marker, the year of dedication, and their sponsor. Look for the names of the drivers to be honored at this year's Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival.

That is some list. I was blessed to see a number of those guys behind the wheel. Yes, even Denis Hulme. He put in a few appearances at Indy.

Let Silly Season begin!

Who’s on the short list to be Vettel’s monkey boy?

That’s what my son says. Kimi would like the car but since it’s a package deal with Vettel, I don’t know if he wants to do that. I think the ride he has is OK, but he needs a better second than Grosjean.

They might move up Vergne or Riccardo. They’ve shown competence, Riccardo maybe more consistently than Vergne. I doubt they move Buemi in; he’s a dick.

But for Kimi, it could come down to a money deal, and Red Bull has it by the bushel basket. They can throw the GNP of Finland at him to get him to sign.

LOL!!! ain't that the truth...

Kimi is a winner and wants to win and he knows he has a better chance with RB than Lotus

i also think he'd give Vettel a real run for his money and treat him just like he's treated Webber

a real Senna vs Prost rivalry that would really set RB and F1 on it's ear

I don’t think switching to RB would improve Kimi’s chance for a championship.

He needs a car to compete with RB, and RB’s current supremacy can’t go on forever.

Maybe his best shot is stay put with Lotus.

true nothing lasts forever but, i still see a lot more money in RB's budget future than Lotus's and Kimi is getting older every year and doesn't have the time left for a wait and see approach... /¢

Only Hamilton under 1:31 in Q1, only Vettel under 1:31 in Q2, all ten under 1:31 in Q3.

Force India and Lotus best factory Ferrari, McLaren? What’s wrong?

Pirelli better get their sh!t together ASAP!

That was simply pathetic. Bummer of a ‘race’.
