Re: Was Ferrari infringing on the technical directive before

I get the impression that Ferrari lost something but it wasn't necessarily pure horsepower. They were still fast in the speed traps at Abu Dhabi and vettel had fastest times in sectors 1 and 2 in qualifying. It was the twisty third sector where they were slow both in quali and the race. Looking bac...

No loads, esp the RB that has done it on just about every run. Maybe Hogweed only noticed Ham?
I know I was wondering why he only pointed out Hamilton.

Re: 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix Race Thread

Looking at that Joleon Palmer video, he blames SV for coming across into Leclerc, with SV's rear wheel in line with CL's front wheel. I agree with him here. But then he doesn't blame Albon for coming across into Hamilton, with Albon's rear wheel in line with LH's front wheel in pretty much the same...

I will discuss the incident with you - I was not discussing the incident above, I was discussing the commentating. As I see it, Charles had not given up the fight. After Vettel passed him on the outside of turn 3, and came out ahead on the subsequent straight, Charles had no intention of letting Ve...

Re: 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix Race Thread

Mercedes had a strategy nightmare today. Not sure I’d call it a nightmare. The Bottas strategy was weird. Doing the opposite of verstappen at the first safety car was their best chance of winning at that point and I think Hamilton said the pit stop at the second SC was his call. Not great but not a...

Re: Was Ferrari infringing on the technical directive before

So, why were Mercedes claiming Ferrari had a 0.5 - 0.7 advantage on the start-finish straight alone on Saturday? Red Bull said the same. From the outside. They have had to reduce their downforce levels to give them the straight line speed. They are now slow through the corners again which disappear...
