A funny driver pairing at Williams and good old Nasr heading to Stock Car Brasil – not more than speculation on our part. Hulk accepting French values, with Magnussen Jr taking his hair to Haas; Bottas going against queen Ham at Mercedes; you name it. 2017 starts with a lot of optimism for the sport, the doom and gloom caused by ugly noses and lack of engine noises is probably becoming a thing of the past.
