The gorgeous new Racing Point W10
Well, at least people can’t say there are too many pink cars on the grid...
Racing Point: "Can I copy your homework?"
Mercedes: "Yeah, but change it up a bit so they can't tell you copied"
Can’t blame them for trying
Is that rear wing legal? Looks a tad too tall.
Have You guys seen the W11 and the steering wheel/column?
It moves inward and outward (maybe to change the camber of the tyres approaching a corner?):
That's really clever stuff.
It's the toe that's changing, and it's incredible. Lets them have better straight line stability with toe in on the straghts, and toe out for better turn in response in the corners.
I have no idea if this will be legal or not, but there doesn't seem to be anything specifically stopping it. There are rules about no changing the suspension when the car is in motion, but front toe is adjusted every time a steering change is made on any vehicle, so that couldn't apply and toe is more a part of steering setup anyway. There's also a rule about no movable aero on the car other than DRS, which this obviously isn't unless you count wheels as aero devices, which isn't an argument that leads anywhere.
It's claimed to be legal, we'll have to see how it all unfolds though:
It’ll turn out to be exactly like every single time a team finds a loophole in the rulebook to gain an advantage at the top. So Ferrari will DEFINITELY complain, probably Red Bull as well.
It’s a vicious circle, really.
This shows why they are WC.
This is incredible stuff, happy they keep pushing with innovations
There was a rule added in October to the 2021 regs about this, but not to the 2020 regs. Clearly a loophole they couldn't close in time. We'll see how much it's worth soon.
My brother messaged me:
"DAS! THIS IS WHY I LOVE F1!!"
Delighted to see Williams out there and in reasonable form. I think from previous on this thread I can state that we're all routing for them.
I've got nothing against Williams, the heritage of the team is nothing but admirable. The fact that such a privateer team is still on the grid in this day and age just commands respect.
I do think they need to shuffle the cards and get new people on board, however.
The track at Zandvoort is finished, here's Max doing a lap in the RB8 earlier today:
They are still wrapping up some of the track-side things (yes the final corner will still receive proper fences too )
Here's a more aerial view recorded a few days back:
First and and last sector have been overhauled completely with repaved asfalt, the whole middle sector is as good as untouched sans from some adjusted kerbs and a small run-off area in one of the corners.
Yes it's still a very narrow track, I think the only "easy" place to overtake is Turn 1, maybe turn 3 allows for different lines with the wide banking.
Other than that there might be more but it'd be very ballsy we'll see what happens!
Also, Melbourne soon!
So uh... how hard do we think Ferrari cheated and the FIA covered it up?
Already had the whole thing going on at Brazil last year, and for them now to be “seemingly y” slower at wintertesting (yes it’s only testing / might be sandbags etc etc) combined with the rumor they have a new engine built from scratch and now the FIA press release.
All signs are pointing towards it haha.
Ferrari can’t afford to loose face like that and the FIA needs them as they are so part of the sport, and that’s all you can say about it I guess.
They have a veto on the council IIRC so let it go or we'll vote against.
Nothing to see here! Move along.
I guess Bahrain 2020 is going to appear on the Formula1 YouTube channel's "top 5 strangest races" list...
So McLaren have pulled out of the race weekend and now there's a meeting on what to do going forward.
Just a reminder that when it was Ferrari, Brawn said they wouldn't go ahead if one team couldn't race.
I guess it won't be this year
