Yeah . I heard about it as well . With DAS the Merc has also more weight in the front of the chassis . Probably the Merc's nose will dive a little more under extreme braking .Personal I think (how I understand DAS) Under extreme conditions it will accelerate the wear of the front tires .

Thats right because of the constant toe in and out.

I'm pretty sure they can't use it constantly .Tires would be shot in no time . They will use DAS only in crucial moments .

Of course that's my technical speculation from DAS ...
Advantage they will have , otherwise Merc wouldn't use it . But they will get a downside as well....
Anyway , within a few days we will see

I'm not sure if you heard the new Honda power source . Well my friend , it sounds very...very powerfull !

So far just the glorious V8 pounding Zandvoort and waiting with baited breath to hear the promising V6 hybrid.Also read that Honda has addressed the slow start problem sometimes encountered by Max at the start.

One hour ago I heard an interview with the "German Angela Merkel" .My friend I'm not sure if you heard that ?
I was like .....What ?!?!
Well..I don't want to spread panic , she actually said probably 60-70% of the Germans will get the corona virus , it's unstoppable and there is no vaccine !
Over here the virus is going fast and as we know also in the rest of the world . That's why I'm pretty sure a lot of races will be canceled ...

Yeah I read it,Merkel is doing a good job in spreading panic and confusion instead of offering sensible advice to the populate.
She would do better in putting pressure on the toilet paper makers to produce more and forcing shops to limiting buyers to one pack of 24.

Over here it's even worse with our Belgian government !
Last week they said corona is actually nothing more than a regular flu , while we saw pictures what was going on in the Italian hospitals ...some look like a horror scene !
They also said to us ...When you feel sick with fever , stay at home and don't call a doctor !
Well...Today our government was singing a drama song . Here they went in alarm-fase 2 !
Public visits are forbidden in hospitals and in rest and nursing homes .
And they talked already from alarm-fase 3 ...

Just plain advice like washing hands, wearing masks if necessary and keeping metres apart from others would be more sensible.

Well...At work I have an Italian worker, his brother works in Italy in the first aid emergencies .
They saw in Italy that washing hands and using disinfection gel didn't worked against the virus .
But a disinfection gel with chlorine did a great job . Sadly everything is already sold out . And where you still find it , the price is raised to x 100 !
Anyway let us hope for the best my friend .

Over here Trump went from "it will be over by April" to "travel suspended from Europe" overnight 😂.
If this virus makes Trump act serious then it's definitely a serious virus!

Oh no,how? All of them.
Yesterday main news on yahoo was an apparently drunk Bruxelles train commuter spreading his saliva on a hold rail! He was caught,arrested and I'm sure charged with endangering lives.

That's because corona is extremely contagious !
Today at the company I/we got new regulations :

1- If you have to speak with other people keep always a distance from at least 3 meters
2- Use the alcohol gel as much as posible and don't shake hands .
3- All the towels are removed and replaced by paper
4- When you have eaten in the cafeteria , clean your table and chair with the disinfectant
5- Clean your computer and smartphone and all the touch screens with the disinfectant when you finish your work
6- If you feel sick ,report it to your boss ASAP (actually I'm the boss) and leave the company ASAP
7- Drive directly to your home ,avoid contact with other people and report back to the company

Our doctors refuse to receive us . We have to call first and describe our complaints first .
Well my friend...I've never seen such a measures in my life !

The elderly care center in Kirkland (about 25 miles from us) was the epicenter of the US COVID-19 outbreak and 20+ patients have died; scores of other patients and employees test positive; there are 10 (yes 10) other elderly care centers in the greater Seattle area that have MULTIPLE cases that have tested positive....

About a week ago, my wife and I have voluntarily self-quarantined at home.
