From what I read Newey is quite accident prone when he's out and about! After several operations of what must have been a bad accident he needs someone to look after him and keep him off bikes and high risk adventures.

yes it is like that.. but that difference cant stop to hear such things like Mercs are 20km/h faster on the straights here..

engine performance, how car uses its rear tires, even throttle map effects the acceleration.. but we re far away from talking such things on this board unfortunately..

Bottas has speed but cannot defend, so put him in rocket mode out front until Hammy get there or Max breaks down.

• I agree completely . But to close the HP-gap the so necessary extra ponies must come from HONDA - ASAP.

• Yeah. Bottas was running with a lower downforce rear wing .
I heard it was still a prototype . Probably it's for to handle the higher Merc topspeed .

• In other words : A test mule won the race in a test flight !

• The Merc rear wings in Turkey .

It has been their policy to NOT PATENT SAFETY INNOVATIONS because they are for the greater good.

Lastly, they are one of the most risk-averse organizations on the planet. They typically don't even introduce updates to their street cars until a minimum of 10 years of experience has been seen with the parts. Think about that for a moment.

Having spent a significant amount of time with the racing team and at the AMG factory, I singularly admire their integrity, dedication to excellence, and push for maximum performance across all parameters.

They get it right most of the time as their current stint in F1 has shown.

Well my friend , then I really wonder why you still drive with your ///M-Bimmers ?
Advice : Sell your Bimmers and buy Merc's ASAP !

And this as well...

BOT is suddenly the best driver ?

This. It can be seen just from this snap and Masi's goof utterance that the gov body are behind Ham all along. Masi the dork could at least have cautioned Ham for his questionable manoeuvre and it's obvious now he should gtf out of F1.

As usual your snaps show the full picture my friend. Bot is still being used as the expendable risk so that it's safe for Ham in the next races.

Interesting Wolf reaction to Bottas podium ceremony. Good to see the real wolf, occasionally.

I must admit, the potential of a WDC Bottas has an appeal. What a terrific send off for 5 years of lap dog commitment.

Imagine the celebration.

Yes, it’s consistent with the temp sensor locations. Note IC location in this simple schematic. Mercs are running a more conventional exhaust layout than depicted.

Engine mode approval process required

F1 insider claims

PU manufacturers control engine modes even during the race.

Mercedes HPP can overrule Mclaren’s, Williams and AM ability to use a particular power mode in the race. Apparently, the switch sequence can be changed for each race for power modes. It’s unclear if unauthorized switch changes can be vetoed remotely.

Likewise RBR and AT need Hondas ok to change engine modes.

Factors of longevity, temps, mileage are considered but ultimately PU manufacturer has final say, so plenty of discretionary room to slow or speed up certain cars.

This could explain Russell’s massive performance improvement in some races, after all he is Merc’s future.

Several years ago this post was 100% accurate. The change occurred with the advent of fixed modes from the Beginning of Quali to Race to end the alleged, "Party Mode", advantage Mercedes had.

The post is correct in that there is an engine manufacturers team assigned to each customer team to monitor the engine, it's utilization, and performance. These teams are in an advisory capacity and while the customer must REQUEST permission for certain things, having the engine manufacturer control what the customer team does with the engine, outside of safety or reliability concerns, is AGAINST the sporting code.

On slowing and speeding up certain cars...this is patently illegal. It has been illegal for quite a while to remotely control the performance of the Power Unit. Further, in the current sporting code, once an engine has been turned down during a race for whatever reason, it cannot be turned back up.

I fully understand why these and other myths are propagated about the PU based on this account which I'm providing from RaceFans about when Lotus ran the Mercedes Power Unit. It's fantastic:

Merc also has a tweaked front wing coming in soon, so that combined with the new higher top speed (even with a larger rear wing than RB) and the fact that the new pirelli rear tire side walls favour the merc might mean trouble for RB.


But I guess we will see, I really don't care lol I just like the engineering side of things. I just wish they were more transparent about what is going on with the pu and where they have improved things.
