    I think they'll do what they did last year and run exhibition seasons.

    It's not like it would be hard to plan out some simple codewords or phrases either. Even just flipping words around: "My tyres are gone, Bono" versus "Bono, my tyres are gone". One is the mindgame the other is telling them the tyres are really going off. They're racing spaceship level cars at...

    2021 FIA Series Race Discussion

    Another good round for me. Managed an okay enough qualifying in clean air for a P4 start, only two tenths down on pole. Start went well and the first lap was no problem, then on the second or third lap someone decides to muscle through into the hairpin and I let them so as to not cause a crash...

    While I agree with your point, this rule doesn't come up a whole lot. In fact prior to this instance with Vettel there were only three fuel related disqualifications over the last 10 years and only one of those were strictly to do with using too much fuel over the race distance, and that was...

    Formula 1 Rolex Magyar Nagydíj 2021

    I didn't say Max rejoined dangerously. I said Sainz did during the Silverstone sprint. I was bringing up a different situation where what FIA says the rules are and how FIA applies the rules is inconsistent, to highlight the pattern of their behavior. Max should have had to give the position...

    FIA also says you can't rejoin the track in a dangerous fashion after going off but Sainz was allowed to drive straight out into the path of Gasly during the Silverstone sprint, so you know, what FIA say and what FIA do ain't exactly similar.

    I haven't heard anything specific but Ricciardo was physically spun around in the T1 carnage. If he escaped without any damages it would've been a miracle.

    Formula 1 Rolex Magyar Nagydíj 2021

    I wasn't implying that. I was implying that there's a lot of pressure at the front of the grid and a lot of friction between the drivers and the teams, and that they all are driving with the elbows all the way out and that is usually a recipe for a messy first lap.

    What are the odds on a lap 1 red flag tomorrow?

    It's not that hard to pick up and like others have said it's actually nice to drive. I'm sure you'll be competitive with just a few practice laps. Each lap is just over a minute anyway so even just a 20 minute practice session gets you a lot of laps :) My one tip is you can cut the final...

    Behind closed doors at RB I'm sure they're busy worshiping at the Altar of Super Max and blowing smoke up his behind about how he's the greatest racer that's ever lived. They've hitched their wagon to the mythos they've built around him, there's no getting off now.

    The thing is that is exactly how Verstappen thinks, which is why we see aggressive driving from him all the time. He thinks it's always the other guy's responsibility to avoid a crash.

    FFB Sensitivity Setting what do you actually feel from the wheel

    The "SEN" or "sensitivity" setting on Fanatec wheels controls the steering wheel lock, or how much rotation you have in the wheel from lock to lock. A higher setting means you have to turn the wheel more than a full circle to get the front wheels from full left to full right (or vice versa), a...

    The only reasonable consequences of a harsher penalty applied would be some combination of: Time added to his British GP result, widening the championship gap by lowering Lewis' result. Grid penalty in Hungary. More points on his license. And this is assuming RB even has a case, which I...

    I don't think Max is behind any of this ********. I think it's very much driven by Horner & Helmut, with Jos backing them up.

    There's the sprint race points throwing a spanner in the works as well. If the margins are small enough to be covered by the sprint points people will endlessly argue that whomever should have been the champ if not for the sprints and that they have no real place in F1.

    Oh absolutely, I agree 100% and I think it's a positive sign that the budget caps are working. They wouldn't get a free pass on the money, they would in my suggestion get a free pass on the grid penalty. Any budgetary concerns would still remain. Also, the rules would have to be written so...

    While Haas were never a rich team and thus would've suffered bad from a crash like this, Red Bull's current problem isn't that they don't have the cash. Their problem is they're capped at $145 million for the season and the development budget for '22 has to come out of that pot as well. If you...
