Re: 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix Race Thread

https://www.racefans.net/2021/03/28/track-limits-policy-did-not-change-during-race-despite-hamiltons-warning-says-masi/ More on the track limits. Apparently every car but one did the right thing...

Re: 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix Race Thread

is hamilton really this bad at not believing certain rules exist? Not believing in T4 track limits and claiming he's been doing the same all race. If hamilton has a weakness, it probably is related to misunderstanding some of the rules. FIA annouced track limits wouldnt be enforced during the race,...

Odd to pit Bottas...
Obviously a disaster with what happened but would love to know the logic. Trying to push Red Bull into pitting?
I think that was the case otherwise Bottas would have got the undercut.

Re: 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix Race Thread

2 v 1 for Mercedes so lets hope they go aggressive on strategy. I don't believe they have anywhere near the pace to trouble Max. It's interesting now the dust as settled that it's been revealed that the new floor regs have cost the low rake cars 1 second in lap time compared to the high rake cars, ...

Re: 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Race Thread

Is Bottas holding Hamilton up? It's pretty unusual for Bottas to be faster so you'd guess so. If Hamilton was being held up, you would have thought he would drive at least a bit closer rather than 3 - 4 seconds. Surely around 2 seconds would do no harm to his tyres? Mercedes just don't look quick t...
