My wife is going to be sad if Ginger Spice gets divorced.


This is the entirety of her interest in Horner.

Even Horner deserves a fair hearing, but if the allegations are substantiated, literally no one will be surprised.

I was listening to the F1 Nation podcast on the way to work this morning, and Lawrence Baretto said that Mercedes had offered Lewis a one-year deal. He wanted three. The one+one was the compromise. Sounds like he jumped before he was pushed.

Lewis also wanted an ambassador role post F1 and Mercedes balked. Ferrari said not a problem.

That’s crazy. If Mika can be an ambassador, surely Lewis has value in that role.

Rumor is that the current chairman of Mercedes Ola Källenius isn't really a big fan of motorsports so he shot down the 2+1 and ambassador role for Lewis's contract. All Toto could offer was the 1+1.

Seems similar to Renault/Alpine contract breakdown with Alonso - arguing over long term vs short term commitments minus the "Ambassador" role which no one should need a team's approval for. Oh right also minus getting it addressed a year in advance rather than mid-season.

"The Times newspaper reported Horner, 50, had been accused of inappropriate behaviour by a female colleague, who complained to the team’s parent company."

That's the most in depth mention I've seen...

Female..........inappropriate. Not good

Finally justice for f--king over Mark Webber.

Apparently, Ferrari’s stock jumped 10% after they signed Lewis, making the company more money than it cost to sign him 😲

And, it seems Horner sent inappropriate photos to a female staffer 😐

Only a matter of time before the actual Horner dick pics make their way around the internet. We’ll finally be able to confirm the source of dat 4-incher energy

What I read was Ferrari released their earnings report the same day the Lewis news broke so the jump in their stock price and the Lewis announcement were just a a coincidence.

And there are so many rumors about what Horner did that I’m not gonna believe anything until the facts are out, then MAYBE I’ll believe it all.

I mean this is the latest rumor, that Jos is behind leaking all of this….

It would be great if the Austrians had a word for “taking pleasure in the misfortune of another”… :happy:
I don't know anything about that, but I was REALLY hoping it was sexual impropriety...
