Re: 2021 Regs

This might be a little off topic. But been curious for a while. How does the cap work?

Who sits there with a calculator adding up all the costs. If they rely on the team self-governing wouldn't they just develop things under a sister company or in a batman basement that nobody knows about.

Its been variables such as driver decisions and other teams (performance, drivers, strategy) which has lead to less domination. Other teams basically nee...

Re: Race Pace Pecking Order...?

Rather than comparing drivers directly, compare drivers to themselves. Look at their race lap times, compare to their qualification time. How consistent are their race lap times. Create some rating/scoring system. Then compare drivers score. Even then its bias of course the guy out in front will hav...

Re: When, and to where, will Ricciardo move? [A: 2019, Renau

They will keep Ricciardo in the main Redbull and just make the car second best so Max handily beats him, raising Max's confidence. Or they won't and Max handily beats him. We will never know either way. But Max beating Ricciardo is the only outcome from the rest of this year.

Re: Who was at fault, Ricciardo or Verstappen? (Baku 2018)

I was under the impression that you get 1 defensive move, and then you are allowed to move back to take your line through the corner. Given that Dan was never alongside in any capacity, going by my understanding (and correct me if i'm wrong) then i'm not really sure what Max has done so wrong in th...

What is the braking zone? Cause both moves were before Max started braking and downshifting, see the onboard. I agree, but the braking was at an angle from right to left, when braking started there was a gap, Ric dove for the gap, but it closed. Because the angle was too sharp and didn't seem to be...
