Brief Footage of the Drivers’ Circle for Jules Bianchi from the Unilaterals

The local coverage, which borrows from Sky, showed the awkward national anthem, but not this, so we’ve clipped this from the Antena3 stream in case there are others looking for it like us. For unknown reasons, the footage is brief and truncated, but as far as we know, this is all that was shown. Being that it is from an online stream, the quality is low - if we acquire better footage, we will replace this clip.

There is an alternative angle clip from Canal+’s camera, that can be watched on Youtube from this point.

"[Jules] had a lot of friends in the paddock… so I have been spending some time with them, particularly Jean-Eric Vergne. I flew from Japan to Russia with the Toro Rosso driver and I am staying in the same hotel with him. We have spent that time exchanging our different stories of Jules."

Nico Rosberg, breaking my heart. #ForzaJules (via broomstick)

"…While sources initially suggested he was fined, the more plausible theory emanating from Brackley in recent weeks is that Rosberg, in keeping with taking responsibility, offered to pay for the damage [caused at Spa], amounting to a six-figure sum. All Rosberg will reveal is: ‘There were consequences I had to accept, and I did. I don’t want to go into the details. Sometimes isn’t it exciting there’s so many possibilities and theories out there? We need gossip in the sport.’"

From Suzuka Friday. You need gossip alright, you little busy…bee.

In the same article, we’re also told DC loaned him a classic Benz for his wedding…!

If on the off-chance you’d like to reblog the gifs, you can take the commentary below off.

When I heard the news about Seb this morning, the first thought in my head was “So that’s it for JB, then.” I’d been steeling for this since the start of the season, knowing his contract ends this year, and as the races progressed, it seemed an increasingly inevitable conclusion. Part of me, the part that lives for Princess alone, thought, “now that’s karma for you” - the cruel things he’s said! What’s the difference if he was only ever going to be cruel again, best to rip the bandaid off posthaste. But the rest of me…

Nico Rosberg looking hot in a Hugo Boss suit.

HI I see you’ve posted some of the deleted pics from Nico’s Hugo Boss Facebook album! I know there used to be over 20 photos but most of them were suddenly deleted from Facebook, leaving only six, and we didn’t get the rest in time. Might you have the rest of the photos? I’m sorry I’m asking about this out of nowhere, but I’m pretty desperate and would really really love to get my hands on them. Thank you so much!

Hey
paddockprincess
, I am sorry, I selected the ones I liked the best to post on my blog, so those are the only ones I have. Maybe other tumblr users did post them aswell?

Thank you so much for your reply, I totally understand that, and I’m really glad you saved these! Looking around the tag, it looks like only one other person saved a few, and doesn’t have the rest either. I really hope that others will surface - but I’m really grateful for the ones you posted!

There are two other animals I commonly draw Nico as (one is a little bird because he is - hey, he even said if he were an animal he’d be an eagle but let’s be real: he’d be a canary or something; the other one deserves a separate illustrative post, haha…), but of course neko!Nico, especially after Rocky, is a given, and it happens to be neko!Nico I’ve been doodling a lot of over the past couple weeks to take my mind off the pain…so here is a neko!chiBrit doing what cats do best.
…Still not over it. :( We did end up seeing Princess a few times over GP weekend, and we never cease to be amazed by how inhumanly beautiful he is in person - and how sweet. Lemme tell you a thing about Nico: he is the sort of person who walks back from the track, stops for every photo, signs for every fan, RECOGNISES you and THANKS you - and this year, even after a race like THAT. We can assure you that’s not true of that many drivers, particularly the ones he’s contemporaneous with…

It started as a solemn sketch of Nico but I kept stress-adding things in around it. Just that kind of mood since Suzuka. The partner-in-crime and I have talked about little else, but I don’t feel qualified to speak much of it online. I really appreciated Nico speaking of the people closer to Jules than he, who suffer beyond his own feelings - and he probably already has a better average than most. Likewise, I read on it endlessly (and am endlessly angered by the ludicrous misinformation, blind optimism, and cavalier pessimism) but feel for those who feel it so much deeper.
The relevant half of Nico’s column is well worth the read, with thoughtful words about Jules and his friends (rather than autobiographical justifications, or kneejerk accusations). For us, F1 was our respite from the spectre of death in personal life; I think on every loss we’ve seen in the sport for twenty years and pray this is not one.

Nico Rosberg trying hard to not cry… =( - Japanese GP ‘14

Watching him after the race was surreal and heartbreaking, the way he went over to the FIA official for more information on the accident, then went over to Lewis to catch him up on that. There was a point afterwards where he found himself the only person left in the podium room, and he quickly wandered out, as if not wanting to be alone, returning only when others did.

(It feels like we are neighbours in an apartment block, forced out at 2am by the smoke alarm to the sight of an ambulance, secretive. We pad around in our slippers, speaking in half-whispers, fearful, hearts in our throats. Dear God. Praying for the best.)

PADDOCKPRINCESS NEEDS YOUR HELP: There were over 20 photos in Nico’s Hugo Boss Behind the Scenes album on Facebook, but most of them were suddenly deleted, leaving only 1 new photo and the other 5 already available through Mercedes. DOES ANYBODY HAVE THE DELETED PHOTOS (or know someone who might)?

UPDATE: With Octeto’s and rosbergs’ posts, 13 of the 16 deleted photos now exist on the internet again. The thumbnails of the three missing photos can be seen in nicorosbergunofficial’s post here: middle photo of row 2, first photo of row 3, middle photo of row 4. If anybody is in possession of or has seen these photos (or has hi-res versions of the rest), do drop us a note!

This faux Hugo Boss ad is something I threw together very quickly earlier on. The very first time I drew Nico was in a suit for a secret agent AU, so it was hard to resist despite my lack of time. The guy in the background is so mysterious it’s almost like he wasn’t reffed wholesale off the photo in this post aegirs compiled that so handily demonstrates why there must be a perfect alternate dimension where JB and Nico got to be teammates shilling suits.
