Welcome back to Formula Oppo! I hope you had a good mandatory 3 week vacation and are ready for some more excitement at the speed of spa!

Previous to the break, this happened. Lewis surged ahead to first place and never looked back. The Australian drank his second place champagne from his shoe while chanting, “AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE! OY! OY! OY!!!” With the Wee Baby Max Verstappen finding life was good in front of Rosberg when he could turn the wheel. Everyone else got to taste the disappointment of half of the season gone and not being possibly able to compete for the top step.

This week we head to the historical hot baths of French Germany. The action looks to be promising and the last of the true 2016 developments will be brought into action. Yes, maybe now will be the time to make F1 fun again. Fun...
