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 !
I'd say needs more wing and Honda has to boost power a bit.

And (sadly) especially more power (ponies) from that Williams PU...

MAX speaks through his frustrations but most of all by the lack of power .
He already knows how it tomorrow will be ...
He should keep his anger under control . A stupid over-risked move is never far away during the race ...

Like I said last weekend in Austria-2 . He pushed it beyond the limits . Nonetheless the Mercs drove out of his sight.
It's from there , that the rage comes from ...

Or maybe it's for tomorrow during the QA sessions .
As you know : More downforce by the T-Wing reduces the top-speed ...
Think the RB16 is in trouble with the balance , twisty rear-end , the lack of power and top-speed .
Looks not good my friend !

I expect the Pink-Mercs it doing better in the front ....and see them end on the podium .
According "Horner and Toyoharu Tanabe" : HONDA-Japan is working 24/7 to close the gap with the Mercs .

Awesome ! But the clock is ticking ....

All RB and Honda can do is to badger away like Albon said in the drivers meeting, it's a lot of small things rather than just the engine so they should just deal with it and cross off the list when sorted my friend.

Of course my friend . And they do , but it's far and more complicated than we can imagine...
If it was that easy . It was already done . Knowing that Japan worked 24/7 even during the COVID lockdown in the last 6 months .
That's why RB spoke by saying : It had the best preparation of a new season ....Ever !
And that ....Makes the situation even worse !

Perhaps HONDA did what it said . But the Mercs are 7 steps ahead ...

We know that Merc resources are vast and go beyond what the public eye can see, there was even talk of an underground facility some time ago which is hidden from view..
On a separate note I read that Mateschitz,overall owner of RBR as a whole has been firing people for apparently 'politically correct' reasons...
