So I'm expecting the usual sandbagging from Merc in practice, it never ceases to amaze me how they co-tow then when it matters get that half second or so and their black livery looks decidedly baleful to me.

Come on stewards lets have an analysis on the seized RP brake ducts if they do indeed contravene Appendix 6 of the fIA regulations.

Party modes can't work well on shiny tracks and there's no traction control or not supposed to be

The latest from Red Bull : It was very difficult today !

According MAX and Albon : Today the RB16 behavior was unpredictable , scary !
We have to find out what it is ..A lot of work is waiting for the RB-Team during the night .

The RB "was" always outstanding in the rain ...
Even the Ferrari's handling and balance looked better in the wet .

From what I saw today . RB really disappointed today !

There'll be no whitewash in the Whitehouse!.....well, not exactly.
Ceiling was roller applied satin white paint with small brush to go round the lights etc..
Floor was a non pourous sealer applied again by roller to stop base cement from crumbling when tiles are put on,important and waiting 2-3 hours to dry.
