Ferrari wont make any progress until October if at all this year. I think we’ll see Racing Point on the podium.

There will be an enforced police presence to keep determined fans out of the Silverstone motor racing catchment area.All nooks and crannies will be searched and patrolled to make sure it's kept spectator free.

The Aeroscreen is even safer and it looks better as well

I shouldn't think it will be that much but for sure it will offer less wind resistance and more top speed. It may affect the air intake to a certain degree so they could be made to sit higher, just like on the mid 70's cars

Thank God for those heroes selflessly putting their lives on the line to make sure nobody is there to see the race in person. Medals and commendations for all.

So very difficult - hoping you have an incredibly wet winter and snow and there can be enough water to make up for this year's drought!

Could be using the old trick of pumping oil into the intercoolers 'accidentally'; burning oil is more hp.
