Re: FRIC Ban Weight Issues

Well i find this driver weight issue to be ridiculous, i understand the minimum weight is to be raised another 5Kgs next season, along with the weight saving with the banning of FRIC hopefully such talk will soon be a thing of the past. It won't be a think of the past as the lighter you are the big...

Re: Last race dilemmas..

i was about to say that most teams may need to do various PU changes due to running out of them, but then i had a thought, i think the smart thing to do would be to do the changes the race before, so come the last race they will have fairly new components and not have to take a penalty at that race.

The hard tire would have easily done 27 laps with lighter fuel. They pitted him with 10 laps to go because they did not want to show their hand. Th...
