Good night!
The '20 Merc has more cooling to fight the lack of power in the heat ..

Another F1 blog site has written that 2020 will be a 'golden season for F1' at the same time having removed their public comments set up.

Gotta love Hulkenberg's comment:

"RB the latest" : The RB16 is still struggling with balance issues...

"We need more time to understand the cars unpredictable behavior completely"

"MAX the latest" : I really hope the Mercs are not faster than 0.5 - 1sec. per lap .Perhaps then we can fight during the race for the podium , by saving the tires .

"From me" : I think the "Pink Mercs" will be also really fast at Silverstone , because Silverstone is know as a power track with fast corners ...

Today over here in Belgium the heat feels like the "SAHARA" !
My thermometer on my terrace shows me 52C in the sun ...Crazy !

The RB's unpredictability makes it fast also and makes Max work harder when he reaches the limit with it, those new bits hopefully will tame the car more to give him a more stable platform.
My friend,PLEASE keep out of the sun.

New MGU-K was fitted to HAM car before FP began as they were worried about the reliability of it, it's his second one so no penalty for him.
