Maybe you should look up the rules in this regard.

These things are what separates great teams from the good teams regardless of sport. Those who disagree are usually fans of teams where the strategy worked against them.

This is nothing new. Throughout the HAM era, Mercedes have constantly implemented strategies that have got the better of Red Bull. Add this to that list.

I wonder if that strange spin from PER in the silverstone sprint race is also the result of this.
That spin was pretty strange. Of course it was coming out of the corner on throttle but nothing crazy.
I know they were also changing diff settings, but these guys are pro's (both the engineers and the driver), so you'd think that what they're doing is resulting in behaviour that they expect.

Lol so do you want a minimum speed in the pit lane now?

Another illustration of what happened and that HAM didnít do anything that wasnít done before. Heís far from my favorite driver. Iím actually rooting for VER to win the championship. But we have to be fair and just admit that RBR fucked up by sending him behind the Mercís.

Agreed. They just got it wrong today.

Interesting Quali. Seems like some panties already in a bunch.

Let's see what happens tomorrow, hopefully some good racing.

Yes they only like to twist parts of the story to fit their half truths.

Max probably wanted a tow, I don't see any complaining about that, but I guess it didn't work out for them so they have to find another excuse to cry about.

Oh yes, now it's the tires. Boo hoo.

Perez should accidently park his car in Mercs pit box during the race tomorrow. Up the ante a little more.

That's why the Red Bull was already slower at Silverstone..
The new rear stiffer Pirelli's work better with low rake cars ,like the Mercedes.

The article in Dutch on this page => https://www.gptoday.net/nl/nieuws/f1...e-achterbanden

I heard that MAX and Checo complained about the balance of the car ..
MAX said later : The car feels un predictable !
Tyres now constructed with Mercs low rake in mind so even pirelli are bowing down to them as well as Mercafia.
Haas and Ferrari flying off the track because of this, the only thing missing now is Masi standing in front of RB pit with a crown on his head saying I will hold you up whenever I feel like it.

Agree it's a question of timing but there's now another bug in the ointment in that it's been discovered that the stiffer rear tyres suit the low slung Merc more (with RB having understeer that can't be dialled out with these tyres) so I think RB's strategy options and others teams' also with the high rake has been reduced.

mate even if its true, that RB affected by this.. what was the reason for stiffer rear tires? ironically because of Max's puncture in Baku.. so this change is for RB to avoid such incidents.. let them be safe..

besides.. floor rule for this year directly hit Merc'.. RB benefited from it anyway..

RB created the whistling situation? No you did hammy by ramming Max off the track and showing what a dirty cheat you are.

Silverstone 2020 ...
The Mercedes tyres got extreme blistering and blew during the Silverstone GP !
According tyre engineers the reason why the Mercedes tyres blew :
Was "DAS" and heat !

Pirelli engineered quickly new tyres with more rubber ...
By this : Mercedes could run with DAS for the rest of the season .

"Made by Pirelli for Mercedes"

Yeah, nothing to do with the long stints they did.

What of Sainz's blowout in Silverstone then?

Perhaps RBR will use a body-double similar to actors in a movie to complete the formation lap to prevent VER from shunting into the Armco....and then drop a Cone of Silence cover over the car and put VER in....

On third and final engine but same spec as the race winning one. Later on another new PU can be fitted at a suitable track where overtaking is less arduous with the 3 place grid drop.
