FP3



Williams, the agony continues: there are no spare parts, the pilots run with very worn parts.

Ham V is ''invictus' here in FP1 and 2 since 2016, amazing this stat. .He's is on the clock, Féfé is already far away..

Kubi hit hardly the wall in pit entrance, losses parts ...oh

FP : Ham V 3/3. I hadn't paused on Merco but I don't see how Ham can miss pole. 1 RBR is behind 1 STR, Kvyat has gained experience in the Féfé simulator and the Haas very pretty

And they cant go ‘all out’ so the slowest car is even slower...

Really Claire should step down and find somebody that knows what theyre doing.

Wonder if Ron Dennis is available?

The only viable solution for Williams, whether they like it or not, is to turn the family page and open up more to investors, as Peter Sauber did to leave with fresh ideas.

Lowe: If Merco let him go so easily against Allison's arrival, it's because there's a reason...

No, unfortunately, Ron is out of F1 now.

is it just me, or do the front wings look lower (closer to the ground) this year?

I didn't dare to say it but it also seemed to me on some cars, I thought it was my view...lol

The teams have probably found tricks for deformation and initial shape recovery

I found that, only for the front wing, you have rule of 111 pages. I think the ''lower'' is an effect of the new rule aero 2019. Measurements are in metric, mm.

Ferrari's is more tapered at ends, but MB is more straight across, but over all they all look lower to ground.

I didnt see it in any of the rule sets but it definitely looks like the main plane is lower (Im not talking about the winglets on top of the main plane).

so..

this might be good....

if the wing is in fact lower, then it will be lss dependant on the quality of the airflow. Meaning it will produce more similar downforce in clean air as in dirty air.

Theoretically...

so, maybe cars will be able to follow closer??...??...


hoping

Lewis will be hard to beat but I can't recall the last time a driver was fastest in all 3 sessions and grabbed the pole. I doubt Haas can actually challenge Red Bull. RB will most likely be close to the top.

McLaren Racing and The Coca-Cola Company announce a 2019 Formula 1 partnership, following a successful 2018 pilot which saw the iconic Coca-Cola brand carried on a Formula 1 car for the first time. ��

Q1

Ham V, 7 poles, 5 in a row. V4 3 poles. Track record Ham V 2018 1 21 164

.Cans of Austria hypercaloric drink are an interrogation because in the Barcelona tests, they didn't show anything. The Honda PU seems brutal, little drivability. I don't hear Dr ''Markus''...

Puncture for Kubi, a kiss with the wall, 2nd time. Track goes faster and faster



1seconde only between P1 and P18, wow

Q2

Complicated for V4 against Leclerc...



....track record for Ham V 1 21 014 Ricci Hulk eliminated by Perez and Lando wowo wow


Big off track of V4, big nervosity, pressure for him, damaged floor ?

Q3

New track record Ham V, 1 20 486, 84th pole, 8 poles here, 6 in a row. O,7 sec gap for Féfé and Maxoo between the red wow.
Now, Merco has to explain how they went from a 0.5 sec delay to a 1.2 sec advantage...these guys lie as they breathe lol



RBR ruined Gasly's Q, it's unbelievable, why they didn't take him out when the track was getting better and better. Gasly, big mistake of Can Tech Marketing GMBH of Austra, no 2nd run for Gasly, unintelligible , in favour of the chouchou Maxoo ? Ricci have to laugh ; the only thing I could understand is that they had to economize on Gasly's tyres...I expect the tyre's board gor the race to judge really but I think all the team is around Maxoo.

An amazing surprise from Norris but Carlito was obstructed by the one-armed pilot who sent his used FW42 twice into the wall ; Robert, I like you but you have to leave.
Renault ? What can I say? It's time to fire Bitboule (in french : c*ck ball) They have to fire the staff of losers at Renault: Bitboule, Nick Chester, Rémi Taffin. Electrical issue for Hulk at the end of 2nd stint, Ricci , bad S1.



I hope Maxoo doesn't have the ''good idea'' to rip open V4 and Bobo's car.

Wow

we might be braced fo another season of Merco domination.

However, I believe Ferrari will be much closer in the race.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.
2021 can't get here soon enough.

Will Kubica last through the season?

Me thinks not.

At what point will Ocon take over? Hungary?


Valtteri back to Williams in 2020
