Anonymous said: I though I was the only one shipping Jenson and Nico. I seriously love you and your tumblr so much!

Dear Anon, we seriously love you too. ;_; We accidentally fell in 2008, and they’ve been our undying OTP since - this is the ship we’re going down with. It means so much that you’re out there (and makes me want to draw them together more too ahahah) - thank you so much for dropping us this note!

given that hamilton has got into a season-long rivalry with every one of his teammates except button you can probably infer what a nice guy button must be

Well, that’s not quite true, it was pretty dicey between them the whole time, even though British media preferred to portray it otherwise. There was the ‘unfollow’ incident, the telemetry tweeting, the ‘I’ll find who’s responsible for the wrong tyre strategy’ moment…okay, well, it was mostly Lewis slowly unraveling over not being able to consistently beat JB as he became increasingly convinced Mclaren were defecting to JB’s corner, hence eventually leaving the team. JB just basically got increasingly dismissive and borderline derisive till he reached the point where he outright stopped answering questions about Lewis. Since Lewis left the team with JB having won the long game (beaten him on points over the course of being teammates) though, I’m sure it’s easy for JB to let bygones be bygones at this point.

(But, yes, as mentioned by others, Heikki was definitely the teammate that Lewis got along with best, likely by virtue of no competition, though it was a little sad when Heikki got to the point near the end of his Mclaren career where he was increasingly outspoken about the team’s preferential treatment, but that’s a given both ways.)

2007, though. 2007.

#i've been in this sport too long #tbh jb is probably the best in the business at insuring his position through force of personality #if you watch the joint interviews for jb and lewis and then nico and lewis #it's jb making the alpha male borderline-homophobic jibes putting lewis on the backfoot in the first #and lewis doing it to nico in the second #formula 1 eh 

"Hamilton: If you sit in their car and drive a race, there is no longer a friend, but only a teammate. And you want to, you must conquer. That’s obvious.
Rosberg: Aha, I’ve just learned something. I always thought there would be something like respect between us. But now I realise that I have to approach the matter differently from now on!"

(very roughly translated from) Die Welt, 8th September 2013

Once upon a time you whispered softly in my ear loving words and fairy tales that I longed to hear

Lewis is right, of course, and I despair that Nico was ever stupid enough to believe you should treat ‘friends’ any differently on track, but it’s fairly interesting to see the long unraveling. Remember when people used to heap on him for being too soft and gutless and never being able to amount to anything? Aww, feels like just last year!

Really quick sketch right after Hungary that I’d missed the window for. There comes a period of time every season where I end up doing nothing but sketches of Princess sporting varying negative emotions, and I rather suspect that period has come upon us this year.
It looks a bit like the lines were colourised after the fact, but that is actually my default sketching colour - that’s how well I’m trained. Q_Q

I don’t get Lewis fans who attribute every little thing (including witnessing someone else get into an accident?!) that happens to Nico to karma. How do they explain the things that happen to Lewis then? Going by that logic he must’ve been kicking a lot of puppies and stabbing a lot of babies over winter break to account for the DNFs…

We’re experiencing technical difficulties so sorry for the somewhat off-model pen-on-pen chiBrit…
Every time it goes wrong for Princess over Singapore GP weekend, I feel personally responsible…but this year even more so ‘cos I was stress-sketching tiny headshots pre-Quali and did this one:

Then post-quali, BBC tweets this:

So sorry for the endless text posts (especially if you’re on mobile…I’M SO SORRY) and lack of chibi lately, you can imagine how it’s been! (Also, RL stuff.) I’ll do my best to shut up now and chibi more. Thanks for putting up with me - and thank you so much, fabianakawazoe and persipanprinzessin , for summarising the video for me!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge for Nico Rosberg

a plus for best wet tshirt yet nom nom nom

MY KNOWLEDGE OF GERMAN IS LIMITED BUT DID HE NOMINATE KEKE AT THE END

I AM EMOTIONALLY COMPROMISED I NEED TO SEE NICO IN CHARGE OF EMPTYING THE BUCKET ON KEKE LIKE N O W OTL

yes he nominated keke (saying that keke will love it), phillip lahm, and his best man from his wedding

AH did he talk about ALS/donating and explain what the men in suits were there for? Inquiring minds who don’t speak German would love to know! (Especially since, without context, this looks like one of those anime scenes where the princess deigns to do this challenge, with her bodyguards tipping the bucket and standing by with a towel. Q_Q)

Pointless sketches of ambiguous Nico, variations on a theme.
Princess, there were some fish you were never meant to fry.[[MORE]]
Boy, it’s going to be interesting, watching this one run! The press kerfuffle at the end was just silly, though - it was quite clear even from what Lewis said (though to be fair, I doubt he interpreted it that way) that what Nico said was that he deliberately didn’t back down. Which is, well, no shit, Sherlock, you crashed. Lewis talks a lot (of course, here he’s justifiably aggrieved with Nico), but one particular point he made, about his disbelief that Nico was still preoccupied with the events of three weeks prior, especially amused me - mate, I think he’s still preoccupied with the events of last Sepang, to be honest…
Our verdict on this one is a bit tricky, actually, because while it’s obvious that racing incident-wise it’s Nico’s fault, and also in the sense that it was stupid not backing down, whatever statement of intent you wanted to make, and thus ruining your own race as well, coming in P2 to Ricciardo is naturally far better than coming in P2 to Lewis - unless Daniel sweeps it all at the end of course, dun dun. So it’s stupid, but how stupid, we can only wait and see. Nico seems to be playing a all-or-nothing game by now - which naturally he has to, because of course he’s not good enough to win the championship on skill alone. That’s the point of giving it everything you’ve got, and why there’s more than one F1 driver at any point of time…
Another thing that amuses me is the number of people in his tag declaring that nobody is giving Nico a hard time for this the way Lewis is given a hard time. You are the bodies, people! Just scroll, you’ve found each other! Although, you know, you could have gone to just about any F1 community on the internet at any time to find loads of people who share and will happily validate your emotions on the matter if Tumblr opinion feels like a problem to you.

A quick one for shits and giggles that Y fixed up back in December. You can see why it’s been hard to find an appropriate time to post this, but the last week of F1 break is the time. Yes. JB sez he could be a vampire, dontcha know.
