After watching over and over again I did say there was not one thing that caused the main pile up but Giovi and Sainz were an indirect cause adding to the mayhem with their blind crazy speed and should receive some sort of penalty for causing an avoidable accident..
Bottas?
It would be good for F1 fans if Grosjean and Bottas had a no holds barred tete a tete but in public perhaps on a news site..Odds on that Bottas wouldn't attend.

Well mate , ask HAM or Toto why HAM's PU is faster than BOT .Same situation .Same story mate !

Regarding MAX's PU : Probably his PU is pushed further to limits , because he's the only one who has the racecraft to put the Mercs in trouble ,of course with higher risk for the PU , which is normal .
Mate .That's what we can see , in the last years .That's no conspiracy , these are facts .

On the other hand, Tanabe said :They saw that all the HONDA-PU's are actually affected , just like MAX's PU .
Albon's PU went twice in anti-stall during the free-practice , while MAX's PU was running outstanding during the free practice and QF.
Tanabe spoke not from 1 PU issue , but from 2 different PU issues ... the issues are big and not fixable by a push on a button !

But hey ! It doesn't matter anymore . As we know It's already too late for MAX with his 3 DNF ..He has nothing to lose anymore in the WDC !
And that he will show as well ...At least if his PU is OK .

All we can hope for mate is : Suspense in the front of the race ,with close overtaking , and hopefully HONDA can make this possible ASAP !
But meanwhile the HONDA PU investigation is still going on ...

With Sochi coming on Sunday week Max will have another chance to burst through at the start to the long charge to turn 2 all being well with the Honda PU.
It's a strange track with quite a few L-shaped bends that could benefit the other one with their trick steering so I would say a good start would be beneficial for him and hopefully Alb will be on the ball too.
I would like to have seen Horner's face on Sunday when Max finished with him telling him what he thought of his failing PU

Yeah my friend . I don't get Horner's statement : He said the Honda PU is fine.
While Tanabe said : There are 2 big issues with the Honda PU's ...

Let us hope for the best at Sochi !

Of course,I hope Horner has learnt some basic rights and wrongs from Max of what can pass off as a decent PU to get him to the end of a race.A fresh PU with reliable ancillaries is not asking a lot from Max!

Sochi is awesome, one of my favorite tracks to drive in Codemasters F1 2020.

That game is fantastic too for any F1 fan. It looks fantastic in full HDR on my ASUS PG35VQ with everything maxed out. They also include older cars, so you can rip up the tracks in the BMW powered Williams cars from the early 2000s.

Mate . F1 is filled with conspiracy and 24/7 spying ...That's why we have 2 Pink Mercs at the track as well !
For more information : Please call Toto !

On the other hand : Last year you told me the same about my conspiracy theories ..
Last year my conspiracy theory was based on the '20 Ferrari Jet-Mode ..
As you know :This year the Ferraris run 20 km/h slower . And LeCrash is weeping like a little girl !

Yeah mate that was my conspiracy theory from last year !

Think Ferrari payed the FIA very well , to still be this year in the F1 !
That's what they call in F1 : "A mutual agreement"

Conspiracy theories ..Give me a break mate !

Cheers !

There was some fire according to Merc but really what was HAM playing at standing on his brakes and the throttle?? Trying to level the brake temps on both sides because one was lower than the other and BOT still let him past just before the first corner,what an obvious charade.

Mate . That didn't looked cool/cold Actually that looked extremely HOT ..
It was about time to leave , it was a matter of seconds ...

Otherwise HAM's A$$ was toasted as well !
HAM has all the luck on his side ,this with the best car of the decade under his A$$ .
Yeah mate , That's our GOAT ...

According the Mercs brake-temp sensors : HAM got 1000C + degrees on his brakes ,not smoke only ,but flames of fire were visible at the startgrid .
The fire brigade was already in a state of alert !

Because of its long straights, fast corners and lack of heavy braking zones, Mugello requires less brake cooling than other tracks, so Merc ran it with "smaller duct openings" than most other circuits , to get a higher topspeed .
