I tend to visit the official F1 site to confirm any major news stories or announcements. The unofficial sites tend to be very good with gossip and info leading up to big decisions with information on whats supposedly going on in the background. The official F1 sites seems to be a bit more "sanitized" and politically correct regarding coverage of the teams. Anyone else feel the same way or have the same approach when verifying sources/information?
There is also the possibility that they don't need to tell us at all what spec they've installed,only to FIA.

The usual:Vet,Lec and Max at finish stopped early as Kvyats car locked up and caused him to go off.Earlier Kubica had big crash with substantial damage to front and back of the Williams.

i ve never been a fan of Kubica but again in such accident, he has a little control over the steering wheel cause he cant use his right hand properly.. it happened quite a time that he cant be quick enough to react properly because of his arm.. he just waits and becomes a passenger literally.. thats really sad.. this crash could be avoided before it even started though.. it was already too late..

As I've said before going past an aghast Rosberg did it for me and the cake topping was controlling that slide where others would have smashed the car.

Water spray from the kerb or not he was simply too fast into that bend trying to get a good time.He's been warned also about spares shortage from a 'Salvation army' Williams running on a cut to the bone (sorry) budget.

Sorry but that's just a load of rubbish. There have been plenty of drivers this season that haven't been able to react quickly enough in the rain when they lost the car. Sometimes the car just snaps that quickly. A good reference is the German GP and the treacherous conditions they had in the race. If we take your premise, then he should have crashed out of that race as well. Not to mention his race starts in which he regularly advances positions (race starts are probably the only time either Williams is regularly racing wheel to wheel).

A lot of people see the arm and automatically attribute it to any issue he has, regardless of whether it's true. Show me one serious publication with a credible source backing that up and I'll believe you. Otherwise, it's all unfounded speculation, merely an opinion based on no facts.

Albon drove with slicks in the wet . He drove the best time . But as you can see it was a pain in the a$$ .
Interlagos weather forecast is better for today and tomorrow .

sure.. take a look at this video that you probably already seen.. he admits he has limitations.. which is natural.. and its sad thing for a fast driver..



besides.. he was slower than Russel each qualifying, Kubica was behind most of the in races comparing to Russel.. you can see it here with graphs..

https://www.racefans.net/2019/08/12/...it-to-russell/ ..

cant remember such spins or crashes Kubica's this season but there is i ll post it if i remember.. you dont need to agree but if you re saying he doesnt have a limitation, it ll mean he is a slower driver than before beaten by a rookie.. im not sure you re telling something nice about him though..
