I had never heard about her before, but holy cow she won the looks lottery. Some company in Belgium/Europe is going to sign her for sure, regardless of the photo.

She's got a lot of options. She could switch her gender identity and change her name to Transaxelle.

Some Germans showed up with their living room.

Massa went upside down.

Kvyat caught fire.

And three different World Champions drove into Kimi, including this sandwich between Vettel and his own teammate, Alonso...
