Default F1 fans, engines and thunder

Are there F1 fans on the forum F1?
I'm a bit of a Ferrari fan myself, but I'm also shouting out for my fellow countymate, Max Verstappen. Only 17 years old and doing so well already!

Looking forward to sundays race!

Indeed, a few of us are F1 fans. I'm a weekend racer and car nut myself, and have watched every F1 race since I acquired a DVR to record them.

Pulling for Williams this year, McLaren any year. I'm not much for Ferrari arrogance, in racing or road cars, but they're good for the sport.

Yeah, i know about the computer programmer who was drowning in the pool screaming desperately. People were on the shore and looking at him, but nobody intervened, they could not understand what he was saying. He was crying out loud “F1! F1! F1! F1! F1!”

Nah, I'm not a big fan of F1 hybrids. Tend not to breed true ...

I have a marvelous proof of the primality of F1, but the margin of this post is alas to small to contain it.

Say F33 (or is it 34?) All the smaller are proven composite.

Yeah, I know. I said the wrong thing; I knew a correction was coming. But I don't like how I'm always editing what I say, and I didn't know how to make make a more accurate quip that would still be a quip, so I left it alone.

Considering that F5 = 2^32 + 1 is a composite, it *would* be something if we had a proof for its... *primality*

Well, yes, in fact that is what I was thinking that only_human's post is funnier than mine, and I wouldn't really need to post a "correction". Sorry.
And you should not feel bad about editing, I do this with (almost) ALL my posts. I always find something to change after posting..
