Wolff tied in to Mercedes for another three years ?

Sorry if this is being discussed elsewhere, but ; https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/55362926 When originally posted the main thrust of the article was that Toto Wolff was committing to three more years with Mercedes F1 - it has been slightly re-written since.

Re: 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Race Thread

.

A very generous Hamilton interview with tributes to various people and with him being very positive about having a genuine two team battle next year.

Looking forward to the off-season to get his body back to where it should be.

Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

.

Oh look !

Every time that Hamilton starts in P1 and just chugs around in the lead, most people here say "oh he just led, NOT the driver of the day" - but as soon as Verstappen does it people think it qualifies as driver of the day.

Hypocrisy.

At least two people saying how good the race was, when in actual fact it was a farce.

The comedy set the stage for some good racing, but don't forget this was essentially a "novelty race".

At 39, and 311 starts, how did Alonso get a "young driver test".

Seemingly it was Todt's own decision, and it has upset a lot of teams in the pit lane.

No, you can see that some of the tyre is outside the white line. That means that part of the car is over the line.

Your use of the word "overlap" implies the same.
