boy oh boy the first contact with Vettel was from left rear tire and he was asking if there is damage on the rear since everything started from rear end assuming a hit.. drivers are not watching the race from TV.. and probably asked like 5-6 times before getting an answer from his engineer.. disappointment.. ok..



actually top speed was Merc's weakest point im glad they recovered that.. at least for now.. or they can run W11 with a bit lower downforce than last year.. one way or another we can see if we can have a low downforce track this year..

Dude are you for real??? F1 drivers should be able to feel the tyre compound flexing under their butts. Your Lecrash can't tell if he was hit in the back or not? Either he is so butt-numb from partying in Monte Carlo when he was asked not to leave or you're just scrambling for an excuse here.
This actually reminds me of another accident-prone driver... I forgot how name... It starts with Romain and ends with Grosjean... He's the one that blamed losing control on being hot in the back, right? Lol. Lecrash to Haas confirmed

My friend,just read a front wing end plate was dislodged on Max's at the end and went into the bargeboard area disrupting the aero on the 16 together with missing elements from the rear wing made 'goliath' Bottas catch up and get past him.

That little piece that came off is the major part of the front wrong that creates a vortex that fights the wake from the tyre and energizes air around the barge boards and floor. So what happened to Max's car affected the bargeboards, the floor, and indirectly the rear-wing.

Kudos to you for explaining it so well, even the super human effort of Max couldn't hold back goliath under those circumstances.

My UKM5 and MBelgium friends -
My friends, this certainly accounts for the reason VER went from competitive to back-marker in such a short length of time....RB and VER have a great future and better days ahead!

Well done! You are clearly "in the know" regarding pre-construction tactics....

I don't. But today he was an idiot today and he needs to learn to not drive angry.
Where does the hate come from? Is it his personality? Driving style? Ferrari?

For me, the casual fan, I think he is an exciting young racer for one of the storied constructors in F1. Seems pretty level headed and respectful in interviews too.

Comedy is tragedy plus time and Ferrari's tragedy has been going on since 2008. That's plenty of time for it to become comedic 😔

Maybe Vettel will beat Leclerc to Haas.
A couple of quote from an interview with Steiner yesterday:
Hes a four-time world champion," said Steiner. "Does he want to come to a smaller team? What does he want to do in life? I dont know.

If he wants to do something, for sure, weve got a good relationship".

Horner: Everyone should be "worried" by Racing Point's pace

"Red Bull team boss Christian Horner says all teams should be "worried" by the pace of the Racing Point, after the way the controversial car charged through the field in the Styrian Grand Prix."

2008... Oh no! trailing fuel pipe comes to mind behind Felipe's Ferrari,if he just would have checked that mirror like Schumi always did and got that right then it wouldn't have mattered what Glock did in the Brazilian..

Yes my friend I know , and I saw what was going on ..
MAX damaged his end plate from his front wing by going too crazy over the curbs in lap 50 . He was pushing it really (too) hard in the turns to make the gap with Lewis smaller .
But even before he got the damage , he was losing it from Lewis .
Lewis and Bottas were 13 km/h faster on the straights , that's like winning a sea of time !
Let us not forget : Lewis drove 6 full seconds away from MAX in only 5 laps !

Like I said , the Mercs are a lot faster on the straights ...
Think Red Bull needs the Ferrari Jet-Mode from last year !
Hard to believe what we saw last year : Ferrari was even faster than the Mercs , that's what we saw in Monza and Spa on the straights ...
Lewis said at that moment , this looks like a Jet-Mode .
Yes guys ...The word "Jet-Mode" came from Lewis ..

Won't be easy for Red Bull to close the (huge) gap ....
MAX said : I saw enough ! He is already worried and he's getting impatient already by the lack of power , but the balance of the car is pretty good .

Mate . Are you surprised by this fact ?

I'm not , because the RP20 runs with the '19 Merc engine .
