    Yes, I'm very happy to still be involved in F1 and talking to all the drivers. FYI, I may be biased but Daniel Ricciardo is the most genuine, down to earth guy in the field, and possibly the best driver of all even at this early stage. His overtaking has been clean and stunning. Webber in my view was two-faced, Lewis Hamilton is a sulky little prick but Jenson Button is very pleasant.
    Hill could be off his game but his win against Schumacher in the wet at Suzuka showed his true ability. Had it not been for Schumacher's dirty tactics, Hill could easily have won three championships.

    Super outfit. Love shepherds check. I swing back and forth with tassel loafers but those look very nice indeed.
    Edit: Yes, a bit longer pants and 2" cuffs would have been perfect.

    Very big F1 fan here as well - good insight! Did you ever meet Nico Rosberg? I'm sort of up for him this year - I was up for Lewis initially but he's proven to be a bit petulant and childish - Nico is just getting on with it. He seems like he's a good laugh too.

    Anyway, back to the clothes. This is me today - fun tie for a Friday.

    This sounds boastful but it was my job. All the team drivers had various meetings with journalists during the race week. I used to have breakfast with Nico every Saturday morning and found him a highly intelligent, very personable and impressive young man. He spoke several languages fluently, told me he dreamt in English and was always reading something very cerebral. Good sense of humour though and used to tell stories of he and his dad, former world champ Keke, racing each other in street cars around the hills above Monaco.

    Get this sports coat yesterday back from the tailor and after shorten the sleeves and letting out 2 cm of cloth at the waist, this is one of my best fitting sports coats.

    Thanks! Also, yeah, the watch is popping out here I think because my arm is bent. Usually the thing is tucked away in the sleeve. I plan on getting a clean watch in the future.

    That's cool! I got to meet Robert Kubica in Montreal after his win there in 2008. He also was a very genuine and intelligent and all around cool guy. He would switch from Polish to English to Italian like it was nothing...

    Been a bit busy these last days - just trawled through a dozen or more pages of this threak. Some awesome fits therein.

    I wore this today. Also some bad shoes which I will most likely have to part with. (Not featured.)

    And here's a little bonus. An overcoat I bought today at a spectacular price, for what remains of the Southern Hemisphere winter.

    Pliny and MF, very nice.

    Elio, I have no idea how many rules you broke, but I think that fit looks superb.

    Nice posts. Don Cologne is becoming one of my favourites with how he wears odd pieces together!

    Thanks, man! I thought I counted 7, but @kulata already found one that I overlooked. Perhaps there are even more?
