Don't want to know what the guy from the steering column mod. felt at the moment Senna crashed and died ..
WOW !

And the Million Dollar question !
Very likely a rushed job with Senna deciding on the spur of the moment in his mind and that mixed with a cocktail of dangerously low suspension,raised seat and other erratic changes should have made the FIA step in to stop it but it was still early days in safety measures brought in by them.
Damon Hill in the other Williams decided after a lot of thought to race with hesitancy and understandably finished well down to winner Schumacher.

“We wholly reject the allegation in the statement and associated media coverage, which wrongly impinges on the integrity and compliance of our team principal,” Mercedes said.

"Formula One said it has rules and procedures in place to prevent improper information sharing, and it believes the allegations are wrong."

One organization making stuff up and hoping it sticks. Sounds par for the course with the media these days. They have it tough, but this sort of stuff is just wrong.

Will be interesting to see if BuissnessF1 survives the incoming lawsuit.

Thanks for sharing this and having to get adjusted to it coming from Baku this time.
Max must be getting used to it by now and will be interesting how the FIA President will conduct himself at the presentation.

It's about an alleged conflict of interest so not a direct accusation by the mag, hardly grounds for a calumny.

Hopefully the FIA president 'Mohammed Ben Sulayem will be sober tomorrow !

Last year he hosted a drunken clown show of his own like a FKN idiot..
And if he wasn't drunk last year , then I fear the worst for tomorrow !

That's what F1 is "investigating", but not what was said by the news article... They said that Toto came to a meeting with classified information. If he didn't, that's abslolutely slander. Given that every team denied it, the mag is left hung out to dry. You can't just make stuff up and publish it.

I heard that the W15 is Wolff's last chance saloon to win a race or two or he could be out even in the first half period of the coming year.

Some simple race facts :

In the races the average gap from LEW to MAX was +/- 15-20sec. !

I can't wait to see how the Merc W15 can close a 20 sec. gap ...

As long MAX will race at the Red Bull Team, LEW will never win a race again !

On the other hand : The 2024/RB20 won't be a joke ...'
The RB20 will split the wind like a sniper bullet with less of drag and even more downforce .

I'm so sorry for the Mercedes and LEW fans !
The pain must be terrible #ButtHurt !

So I opened a new topic for all to post and discuss everything in the transition period between the 2023 season and the next 2024 season, so the winter development period with all its gossip and speculations...
And boy there have been some the last few days....

New topic:
F1 2024: winter transition, development and pre season events:
