Its too much of a coincidence for it to be a random personal issue at home to happen on the same weekend 3 years in a row, though obviously apologies to ej if it is just sheer bad luck.
I doubt he’d be avoiding china on moral grounds as that would be hypocritical given that his shirts and analysis he inflicts on us each and every grand prix.
So maybe he cant get a visa due to his crimes against fashion and criminally awful, uninformed anti mclaren punditry…
Anyway, I never thought I’d say this but I hope your back soon EJ, poor old Jake looks lost without you, especially when DC has dissapeared off to the commentary box. Just remember to pack some ‘plain’ shirts and do your research!
