Happy Birthday! However everytime I read or see his name, automatic my mind would read it in a thick Spanish accent like Alonso hehehe

Nice Birthday present for him: let him free, so he could find a new job!

Not the best f1 driver, but this overtake on Bottas resides in the memory even today.

It's good to see him staying alert on a street circuit.

Top class pundit🤔 and you find the one over take he’s done in his short career. There was a reason it was short 😂

Oh hey I didn't Palmer has the same birthdate as mine ! 😮

Pretty good at crashing more like...

Have him in the commentary box instead.

"WHERE IS PALMER?"

Adam Ormondroyd Jolyon > Bottas 😛
