The one thing RB can give Merc a sock in the eye with my friend.
...and let's keep an eye still on the start for any more unusual fast starts that are out of the ordinary, whatever it is can be slipped in when not expected,Wolff is wry ol' person.

RP punished.

Racing Point have been fined 400,000 euros and docked 7.5 constructors points from both its cars in the Styrian gp when it was found their brake ducts were too similar to the Merc ones.The fine is chicken feed to them of course but a warning that at least FIA is alert to things that are not right.

yeah Racing Points is fined.. rule says you can take suspensions from other team but not the brake ducts.. brake discs, uprights, pads can be same but not the duct its ridiculous but rules are rules.. they should ve done it like HAAS did.. HAAS copied Ferrari with minor changes.. like Red Bull - Alpha Tauri as well.. like the guy in the video says how different is different have to be..

Indeed my friend

Strange fact is regarding the Ferrari Jet-Mode from last year ...
*Ferrari was never fined by the FIA* !
While it was obvious that they cheated . They were faster than the Mercs !

*Ferrari "falsified" the entire WC ranking from last year* !

Yeah ..."Jean Todt" , you should open your *F eyes !

after FP1 its obvious that tires are too soft for the cars.. McLarens had quite a lot of wear and vibration on back tires, Merc's front left, Alpha Tauri back as well.. more than 60% it ll be raining on Sunday morning and drying out until the race but i guess this weekend we can see hard tires on Q2..

Last weekends Kvyat's blow out was down to a mechanical fault on the AlphaTauri piercing a rear tyre and not a rubber wear problem according to Pirelli.

Merc not hanging around this time as Bottas gets tops in FP1 1/10th ahead of you-know-who.
Max 7/10's down on Bottas in 3rd and nearly had a collision with yes, you-guessed-who..Lecrash.
All drivers on C4 softs.

That was crazy. I wonder if the pit wall warned Leclerc about cars around him.

Looks like they were both surprised,Lec closing at great speed and Max's team failing to warn him of Lec approaching when turning in.

Hulk pits with a loose seat, reminds me of our CLK's passengers seat frame which has an irksome bolt that loosens from time to time.
