Strange , because they are having a huge data storage regarding the settings and mappings from the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya .

Seems like the W12 can run very fast over one lap .
Even BOT can be very fast over one lap , because he took the pole at Portugal .
Same with HAM at Portugal , the moment when he overtook MAX , it was like MAX was standing still !
Over one lap the W12 runs very fast to make the gap . Once the gap is made , the Merc pace goes back to normal .
One thing is for sure : The W12 found new (more) power ! A higher rake and the 16B's rear wing ...
Hopefully Red Bull has a response for the Merc's warp-speed ! Because this race is already crucial for the drivers ranking .

Mate .Thanks for sharing ....
Makes the bulges on the PU covers more to do with that in combination with a longer boost battery charge for a short moment when needed.

That's what I was thinking about the bulge as well . More boost = More generated heat !

Remember last year , the last race in Abu Dhabi ..
Mercedes had to turn it down , because 2 weeks before it blew in Checo's Pink Mercedes.
It was a sign on the wall !!!
More boost and power is more wear ...

It's for sure , Mercedes came up in Portugal with something very special !
At least over one lap ...But that's enough to make the gap and to win the race !

#WarpSpeed !!!

Something they had on a dusty shelf already built from years back ready when needed.
Any chance of the Chinese March 5B rocket falling on both the Mercs while they are parked up my friend

0.168 separates Hammy, Max and Bot, Max had to back of a bit because of Perez yellow flag which hammy didn't and he did Q2 on used tyres which will be disadvantage for him tomorrow.

Checo ran wide with his front left tire on the gravel (half tire was on the gravel)
And of course he went off ...big mistake-own mistake !

As for the Red Bull race strategy , once again the situation looks bad !
Damn Checo !

Yes again Max has to fight two MIB's with one hand for EACH !
Checo should at least be hanging on within tolerance for a higher place instead of kid mistakes of his own making.

Just in that according to Pirelli, Max has the best strategy of winning today even with Checo starting from 7th.

Coming from Pirelli it goes to show that it's not only tyres that count.
On another note former champion Jenson Button has said that Max has more talent on the track than hammy with the equipment used.

Without the BR-01, Jenson Button would be a footnote in F1 history. A single win prior to Brawn GP. Luckiest champion ever.

I'm continually amazed that Max is the most talked-up, no-results, always-offered-excuses-for driver currently in F1.

He doesn't get the poles he's supposed to get.
He doesn't win the races he's supposed to win.

More excuses are offered for his lack of performance results each week yet people say he has more talent and is a better driver than 7-Time FIA Formula One Champion, Sir Lewis Hamilton. It's almost like a collective hysteria has befallen people who believe this in light of ACTUAL EVIDENCE that it isn't true.

LOL!

Ross Brawn, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and many others agree with me. There are over 20 WDC/WCCs between them.

I'll go with them.

Your driver is the most over-hyped, under-delivering driver in the history of F1 and now that he has a car that is faster, he isn't getting the job done.

Now that Sir Lewis has had a very long time to study his driving by sitting behind him for most of the race, VER will be in worse shape than before against Sir Lewis.

The dismantling continues in just under 2 weeks. Monaco is a track that favors the short wheelbase, high rake design that Red Bull has. The problem is that Max is driving the car.

I can't wait until the race!!

No one can challenge hammy except Max and if anyone is over hyping him it's the media, it's their job he he.,oh well every bit helps no?
When Checo gets it together, quickly and comes up the order to back Max then hammy will be under pressure and we all saw what happens when he was squeezed at the start at Imola,a situation he could never win and yet he still pushed

FTFY.

And the job of the media is to report the news factually...but they aren't the news, they are commentators. Their goal is to bring more eyeballs to bear for ad revenue.

And the problem with this is their false narrative creates discord and rancor among the fans. It's vexing in the extreme and a complete disservice.

That's nothing but the FIA helping with their illegal car. First traction control through torque maps and now bendy wings. Both of which they have experience with from the EBD days.

They are opening their old play book with the help of the RBFIA.
