Re: Honda - Heh Heh

Red Bull is winning despite of Honda, not because of Honda. With a Ferrari or Mercedes engine, Verstappen would be in a real fight for the wdc ... Not 100% sure. Honda has reportedly a very tight packaging, suits the Newey design of size zero cars, it was one of the things I remember being mentione...

Re: Should Verstappen get a penalty for his overtake on LeCl

And yet more precedent for crowding another driver off the course, Rosberg vs Verstappen at Germany 2016.

Re: Canada 2019: Vettel Penalty Uberthread (merged)

For me that's why I disagree with the penalty. I understand Vettel came back on dangerous but if its a penalty in Canada then it should be a penalty everywhere. I know there is different degrees and danger but dangerous is dangerous no?

Re: 90 days for Honda to show McLaren they can be competitiv

I read it as they are not 100% confident that it will work so don't want to introduce take the penalty and have it fail. I can understand that but still don't see why they don't just take the penalty and use the race data to help them understand it more.

Lewis blocked Ricc in the pit lane which got the penalty. As DC said everything Lewis did before the pit lane was fine as that is still the race track. Regardless of any advantage got or not got what Lewis did was dangerous.
