Be careful... your brain will rot if you spend too much time looking a Flavio's twitter account. Self absorbed is an understatement.

Those people have never sat at a table together before. This can mean only one thing. Mercedes F1 team will use Renault engines with Alonso and Webber as drivers.

Well it's a good thing I don't follow Flavio's twitter account then isn't it? Those photos were from elsewhere.
Interesting that you know about the content of Flavio's twitter account, and what it does to your brain. Thanks for the heads up.

Google image search. Learn it, love it. Images are clearly initially sourced from Flavio's twitter account (which I looked at for the first and hopefully the last time today which is what generated my comment above). Given the need for the press to generate page views and spin theories, I am sure the photos are everywhere now.

Niki Lauda when asked 'bout Alonso in Flavios presence said "no". "We've already got two drivers". (Slight paraphrasing but what Lauda said was typical Lauda-esque bluntness).

And I don't blame him. Pairing Hambo and Alonso in the same team is a risk that isn't really necessary to take. Bottas is capable of winning and affords some equilibrium to the team. Alonso, in his turn, has been known to give team's upset stomachs.

Briatore is probably trying to stir speculation in Alonso to stir media interest and therefore stir interest with the teams. Or just raise the price Renault would have to pay to rehire him.

Briatore postin' instagram pix of himself with a big supergrin in the Merc camp. Like that's not tryin' to play the media.

Alonso and Bottas would be a good team.

What?

Not sure if directed to me or F1Guy. Either way here is what I am pretty sure are the source of the photos...

As to the stories based upon who Flavio dined with this weekend, I don't put much stock in that. Based upon his social media, I think I am the only person who didn't eat with him. And barely hours have passed and I am looking at Flavio's tweets again!

Actually not an unreasonable hedge to set up in case LH decides to pull a Nico.
