He may have over-revved the engine when a gear didn't catch and stopped.

Was that oil or coolant? On one of Shell's YouTube videos they showed the Ferrari F1 oil and it was yellow not red.
Anyway, a lot of cars rode that curb with no damage but his luck is pretty shitty nowadays.

Ferrari appealing the Racing Point ruling is the lowest they can go. They either just realized that Racing Point is going to beat them in the manufacturer championship. Or, hear me out, they want to sabotage Seb's car for next season.

from McLaren dont remember who said during FP2 that we inspect the champ winning car and try to implement on our car as well.. so with this in mind.. brake duct copying is illegal ok.. when you compare Ferrari and Haas brake ducts they re 95% the same.. when you compare Red Bull and Alpha Tauri its 95% is the same.. Racing Point is 99% is the same.. i guess that makes the whole problem.. like that saying how different does difference have to be.. yes Racing Point's car heavily inspired by Merc's car its obvious.. but want to ask really.. teams can order the PU, suspension, brake systems, uprights, pads etc. from another team but not brake ducts.. is this solution for "saving the sport".. i dont think so.. in the end its a rule ok but how on earth Racing Point can design another brake duct in few days manufacture it and put on the car in this short period of time.. its not realistic..

and now i guess things will get deeper with this Racing Point issue lawyers will be around and they ll bring the blueprints of their designs overlap them and it wont be the same 100% with Merc.. so it wont be a copy, heavily inspired design or some other fancy wording of law.. or Racing Point will be disqualified completely.. Renault was waiting to make an attack until Racing Points finish in front them and they did in Austria.. at least RP cars suck on Sundays that these controversies came a bit later..

The RP thing is stupid. They didn’t show up and suddenly have the same pace as Merc. Almost all the teams are slower than they were last year. That’s pathetic.

yes thats the thing im trying to tell here for some time..
all the teams except Merc' are got even slower than last year.. Merc' made step forward like 0.6-0.7 seconds avg this year but instead of getting faster other teams lost their previous years pace and now we have a clear dominance..

mate things are not just Merc's party mode.. another example from Hungary qualifying.. we already know that last weekend all the teams were slower than last year except Merc' lets take a look the previous track..

Max got the pole with 1:14.572 in Hungary 2019..
same driver Max did 1:14.849 in Hungary 2020..

you can check it yourself if you want here.. im sorry but F1 i know goes forward not backwards.. if other teams are going backwards and Merc moves forwards its not their fault.. its solely on other teams super improvements in this 1 year...
or maybe Merc' should say sorry for being good..
