MIAMI, Florida – After news broke that Manny Machado inked a $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres to play baseball for the next ten years, race car drivers took to Twitter like a storm to remind folks that drivers are athletes too.  “Baseball players just stand there for 3 hours every day,” tweeted Audi driver Thom Jonsson, “Have you looked at CC Sabathia or Bartolo Colon?!”

In a multi-tweet rant, Jonsson went on to remind everyone that when drivers are not traveling the world and driving million dollar exotic race cars, they were constantly training to exhaustion in Monaco by riding bikes along the beautiful Mediterranean Sea or through the gorgeous mountains that overlook the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.
