With regards to the bendy wings or DAS, etc. are they actually illegal? It feels like they’re not prohibited in the rules and teams are just whining bc they didn’t come up with a advantageous design.

It’s super annoying sometimes with the whining and the politics BS permeating through the sport whenever a manufacturer dominates or even gains an advantage somewhere.

This is the way.
Unfortunately thats the nature of public forums. Sometimes you have to sort through the propaganda and BS to find some posts with substance, but they are there. About halfway through IIRC there is some decent and educated conversations with GuidoK and a few others. Just learn which usernames to scroll right past when you're looking for insightful content

Kimi was paired with hammy for today’s press conference.

A fan question was presented.

“If you had 30 secs of the world’s attention, what would you say?”

Commentator asked who wanted to respond first?

Kimi was reluctant and then responded “you [hammy] always have a lot to say about a lot of stuff, so you go.”

Hammy reeled off..equality, vegan, save the earth, stop abuse, mental health.....

Commentator thanked Hammy for his response and put the question back to Kimi.

Kimi said “I guess to have fun...have fun. No matter what you say, some people won’t like it so yeah have fun.”

Hammy for a moment appeared to admire/envy the Kimi’s simplistic approach, or it maybe Kimi’s impeccable wife.

Ferraris are going better than expected for everyone i guess.. there were too many yellow flags during the session that compromised a lot of drivers lap but Leclerc was pretty good in last sector anyway.. not clear yet maybe there ll be a Ferrari on the podium again..

Okay latest news is that Merc are copying RB in the latest wing news, camera footage shows the 12 wing bending back into shape under braking and I can't put the clip on bc last time I did I couldn't get back on that site for a while.

That's my boy, I love Kimi and his wife is smoking hot!!!

Sounds about like his one interview on "Drive to Survive."

Interviewer: 'Kimi, so you don't like interviews.'
Kimi: 'No not really' and walks out

looks like Merc's wont shine in quali at all.. i hope they both ll be in at least on second or 3rd row.. Lewis' race pace is much better than quali.. he can be stronger in the race but Red Bulls are even stronger than Monaco for sure.. Ferraris race pace dont look good but in quali they can surprise..

The whole damn BS started by Hammy's protest ...

I really wonder why the FIA took so suddenly quickly actions ?

1• In 2020 Mercedes ran the whole season with the DAS advantage, despite the protests from the other teams vs DAS ?

2• Why we don't see yellow dots on the Mercedes flexible front wing ?


MAX said : I'll talk on the track !
Horner said : We'll strike back !

In one word : "WARFARE" !!!

GPblog says that the combination of slow corners and high speed straight is causing a balance problem with the LWB w12 and for sure they can be quickest on the straight then at the street bends and Castle area it's like a bus.
