    Heaven forbid that any driver make a friendly, harmless joke. I really think that too many people are way too uptight.
    I thought it was funny, not threatening. I just don’t see the big deal seeing how well the two drivers get along.
    Competitors? Yes. Enemies? No.
    May the better car and driver win.
