Then going by this (of which there is no real answer) tyre pressures may have to be increased more maybe.

Yeah my friend , but if it happens again ...Then Pirelli is in deep , deep 5H1T !
Who will pay the damaged car ?
Or when a driver is badly wounded by a crash caused by the Pirelli's ?

Be interesting to read the insurance but I think the normal 'all risks' team insurance plays the part as pirelli are not responsible from their side as we can see them distancing from taking liability should the worst happen as ''adverse racing risks'' probably not covered and almost certainly written in the tyre supply contract.

GR to replace VB
LN to replace LH when he eventually retires. Now thats the power team right there.

Lando and George at Merc
Carlos and Charles at Ferrari
Max and Pierre at RBR.

Now we are talking!

No way my friend . "If it happens" The Russell boy can get a Mercedes contract with restrictions ordered by 7Hammy ...

In other words : The Russell boy is only allowed to win a race "IF" 7Hammy gets a DNF !

Ask Bottas ...

That’s not what I gathered. I saw the relationship dynamic become that of mutual respect and competitive nature. That doesn’t translate to hate.

As you said : Marked false or unverified ..

Why wouldn't Mercedes register the (a) clause in the Russell boy's contract ?
As you can see this ....

Russell will have his work cut out for him with hammys ability to pour honey into his teammates ears.

Russell can quickly turn into Bottas v4.

He has been driving like a joke, mid pack in the best all around car on the grid.

Russel should have been in that seat this year. Mercedes would be leading the constructor championship.

^ It's suspected there is a handling deficiency in BOT's car even more so after it was rebuilt and it seems set up info is not being passed on from car 44's engineers.

I doubt it. MB shouldn't undermine RUS like they do BOT. HAM isn't getting any younger and MB needs to find out if RUS can become their next #1.

But HAM is SELFISH and I highly doubt he will help or mentor RUS. Kid is on his own to prove it.

Lastest rumor is HAM's next contract will be a team friendly deal a' la Tom Brady (American Football). Pay cut to help MB but laden with performance incentives.

HAM has plenty of money. He should bet on his personal performance and give MB more financial resources to provide the best car possible. Seems like a win win solution for HAM and MB for more championships.

I’m the opposite of a Ham fan, but anyone that takes a paycut is displaying the ultimate act of humility. Honestly think on it for yourself, did you ever volunteer one? If someone told you that it was mandatory, you’d be on the job boards (I know you’re retired, proverbially using you.) if he in fact does it, everyone that dislikes him for his character (more than can admit with assumed racism…) may want to give him some credit. We shall see.

I don't think it's fair to compare my situation to HAM's...He has earned generational wealth which completely changes the decision making process.

Speaking for myself, should I have his net worth, I'd rather have more championships than money. So, I'd be happy to take a pay cut to benefit the team and get a better car. I also don't think the net result will be a pay cut. Remember it's less guaranteed money but MORE incentive payout.

I'm not trying to discredit HAM. Just the opposite, he is no where near washed up & can afford to bet on himself. In addition, the "Tom Brady" model which I suggested should provide incentive and motivation.

So would I take a flat out pay cut? No

Would I take a pay cut with performance cash incentives to enhance additional championship hopes? YES

In the end I don't think he will make less money. He could possibly make more via a different method.

It's still just a rumor also.

By that logic virtually no one is comparable. Wages will always differ person to person within the same profession. I can’t imagine this is news to you. I also expected that response from you, quite truly. It’s dehumanizing someone to assume their wealth is the sole factor in a wage cut.
