@yco said last month : That he would collect some carbon bits at the Instanbul park circuit .
He said also :I'm hoping to find RB carbon pieces from MAX's car !
If it came from a Ferrari , that would be nice as well....

EDIT : But if the came off from a MERC ? That would be very bad news !

This could give Seb the fillip that he needs knowing he's not there and giving his teammate a hard time for a change.

mate things didnt work out as the way intended to be.. cancelled tickets + no on track duty + increased covid made things impossible for picking up carbon pieces..

This permutations of this race for Lewis...

Race week

ROUND 14: Turkish Grand Prix, Intercity Istanbul Park Circuit
Lewis Hamilton raced at this circuit in seasons 2007-2011
His stats at this track:
- Race win in 2010
- Podium finishes (2)
- Front row starts (2)
- Laps led (30)
- Of the 32 circuits Hamiltonís now raced at in Formula 1, this circuit is one of 3 where he hasnít taken pole position (others: Imola & The Buddh circuit in India)
- No fastest lap
- In the 2006 GP2 Series, Lewis Hamilton racing at this circuit overtook 18 cars on track in 19 laps on his way to a P2 finish
- This was one of Hamiltonís best racing performances taking fastest on the last lap to finish just under 2s off race winner
INSIGHT:
- Lewis Hamilton this weekend could clinch his 7th Formula 1 Championship if he maintains a 78 points lead to Bottas at the end of the race
- A win for Hamilton this weekend would be his 10th win of the season, to then make it 6 different seasons where heís won 10 or more races (A record)
- A win would be his 2nd win at Istanbul Park, and a clean sweep of wins at all the 5 new circuits added to this yearís calendar
- If Hamilton wins the race, heíll then set a new record for the most wins by a driver with the same constructor (73) beating Schumacherís record with Ferrari
- This would also be Mercedesís first win in Turkey, as well their first podium
- Pole position for Hamilton would be his 10th pole position of the season, to then extend the record to 6 seasons where heís taken 10 or more pole positions in each
- A pole position for Lewis would also make this the 30th different circuit where heís taken pole position to extend the record
- Lewis Hamilton could also secure this seasonís DHL Fastest lap Award if he takes fastest lap of the race, or either Valtteri or Max fail to take fastest lap this weekend
- Fastest lap of the race would be his 3rd successive fastest lap in 3 races
- Fastest lap of the race could also give Hamilton the record of fastest laps at the most different circuits (25) beating Schumacherís record
- This weekendís grand prix could be Hamiltonís 15th consecutive grand prix whereís heís qualified in the top 2 (including the 2019 Abu Dhabi GP)
- After breaking Schumacherís record of the most top 10 finishes at the Nurburgring , Lewis Hamilton could extend this record to 230 Top ten finishes by a driver in Formula 1

I think Hamilton has a great shot at pole...not so sure about the race.
That long turn 8 is a bit of a tyre killer and if Mercedes do have a weakness its how they can struggle with tyres at high temps and/or very high lateral loads.
Should be an interesting race...a little rain would also spice things up as well.

I think they will be ok on tire temps based on track layout and the ability to rest the rubber in 3 primary areas but we shall see! It's all conjecture now!!
