    TW on F1?

    The torrential downpours in Texas this weekend pushed saturday's qualifying to this morning. The still less-than-spectacular conditions led to the cars going out on full wets. Carlos Sainz however decided he'd rather trade his Formula 1 car for a more trusty steed.



    After his aquaplane crash in Q1, he got a ride with one of the marshalls back to the pits on only the best ride in Texas.

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    I love it!!!! Carlos Sainz on a TW200.
    I had to clap my hands. As much as I was pleased to see the video.
    (I am really tired. I had to use google for the translation.)

    -->> I had to post this video on my Facebook site and some Facebook TW groups.

    I suspect one of your friends doesn't like the TW as much as you.
