I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see if the MB updates would’ve closed some of the gap or not with RB. Qualifying pace looked good but obviously the sprint didn’t as Max checked out. Would’ve liked to see it over the entire race. We’ll hopefully find out in Hungary.
Honestly think the race was going to be a repeat of the sprint race after that corner. Lewis wasn't complaining over radio in sprint race for nothing, asking for more power. He couldn't catch Max. I don't think Max was driving 10/10th's either in the sprint race. It was do or die to get around Max in the first couple laps.

Ok sounds good. But the Go/No Go decision can't be taken a week or so before the actual event, It's getting real tight I'm afraid - I got lots of experience with planning and execution of large scale public infrastructure projects.

Well said EdM5 -
Planning, permits, funding, security, insurance, vendors, police, crowd control, etc, etc requires much time and planning....you can't turn a super-tanker in the ocean in a short amount of time....

Carry on.
Interesting post . But your story won't work in the middle of a dog fight for the title of the World Championship .
In this season some things are changed , for the first time MAX drives also in a fast car , and it Isn't a Mercedes .
In this season HAM was beaten by MAX , like he was never beaten before !
MAX got already 2 DNF . And who's still the leader in the WDC ?

Carry on .

Positive .

If HAM didn't crashed MAX out . MAX won Silverstone as well .

MAX lifted it already in half of the sprint race ...
HAM knew it and felt it there , because MAX ran like a bulllet !

That was actually the meaning of my words ..
For the moment the biggest concern lays there in Japan ...
MAX's HONDA Spec-2 PU !

At first I heard positive signs from Japan , today I heard bad signs .
A F1 PU has 6 big parts . One of them is in bad shape ...

I would refuse to get the responsibility to say the "YES" word regarding the HONDA PU.

BOT burned his F@cking brake pads to let 'your Hammy by. That was actually BOT's F1 career at Mercedes !

Max has a new distinction:

He is the only driver to score championship points, in the history of the FIA Formula One World Championship, without completing a single lap in the Grand Prix.

Yay Max.

That's for sure : Because MAX won the first sprint race in the F1 history .

MAX sprint race was P1 and he scored 3 driver points .

I really wonder , what's wrong or funny about that ?

Yes, true, but still finishes ahead of your hero MAX in the standings lol

“Hello, my name is Valtteri, I drive a F1 car with one foot on the brake and I still finish ahead of Max!”

One things for sure my friend is that Max (as per norm) needs back up badly.
According to analyst van der Garde the decision has already been made who will be in second seat at Merc and he doubts it's Russell because of Wolfs pandering to Dramilton.
If Checo continues as a Kimi then I can see unhappy Leclerc or even Russell (if not restricted by merc agreement) coming to RB.

Seb is one amazing man and no wonder he's Britain's favoured driver unofficially according to a poll. I remember he was at a petrol station in NW London a few years back doing a Shell promotion telling customers at the pay till that there's no charge for their fuel after they filled up.
My only bug bear with him is he's becoming a tree hugger with his 'cleaner environment' comments.

How can he ask for more power? the ecu mode is set for a race non adjustable from the pits.

The battery mode (which is not in parc ferme) changes not the ICE.

Indeed my friend . I heard the onboard radio ,100% sure that HAM was asking for more power .
I think that's just part of the #Wollf'sBlitzkrieg !

I can post the sign of the 'BlitzKrieg , but as you know that won't be good ....

Well , there it is ! "Mercs-Hybrid-Top-Secret" in a decade of Mercedes dominance...
Just run 30 sec. in Warp-Speed to make the gap ....and pull the other cars out of sight !

P1 -Mercedes
P2 -Mercedes

And after 4-5 laps in every race , the race was already over for the rest of the field !

But hey ! It was never the car ...
