FIA only asked teams to upload their maps to server prior quali.. but yes banning different maps is a useless attempt to kill Merc' dominance i agree..

and for Albon sorry i cant agree with you mate.. difference is not setup only.. setup among drivers is already different.. difference is parts and its not fair.. here you re assuming Merc' downgrades Bottas' car without a proof and it doesnt look right for you, Albon races a different car than Max.. its ridiculous and not fair at all..
Yeah . Perhaps Toto can tell us more about it

As for Ferrari : Ferrari is building a complete new PU for in 2021 . That was about time...

thats what they do in semi-pro karting series around the world my friend.. especially in endurance series.. it can be a solution but not sure it d fit into F1's identity and nature.. it was being discussed before among the grid..
and more importantly Merc can work hard and build the car around that ballast and still can take advantage of it..

I can see Wolff having a fit already and it would be a viable solution if all else fails my friend with of course the weight distribution being appropriate for the weight of cars involved.

You're correct! Perhaps their "loaners" could at least get them into Q3!!!!

actually it could be better lap comparing to Lewis' other laps but i guess it ll stay as the fastest for a while.. oh wait probably not.. outer layout of Bahrain will be a really short lap and almost oval.. if it ll be the fastest lap in history there it can stay that forever really.. which is not good..

and anyone annoyed by the outer line of track limits in Parabolica is really wavy?
it eaten a lot of drivers lap time.. line looks like it has been drawn by a kid with same angle you can be in and out of the track its ridiculous.. too much espresso i guess..

Yes my friend . The FIA requested to ban the Party-Mode at Francorchamps .
Toto requested the FIA to wait until in Monza .The FIA said : OK Toto .

This means Merc was not ready for it in Francorchamps ..
So , it took some time and work for the Mercs to get their hidden stuff together, regarding the Party-Mode .
Of course , the million dollar question is : What the stuff actually is ...

One thing is for sure : The Mercs PU is like "The Magic Box Of David Copperfield" !

Mate .No need to refresh my memory . It's all about why they requested to ban the Party-Mode .
The other teams wanted equal machinery and HP and they thought that would be possible if Merc would ban the Party-Mode ..
BUT ?!?! What did we saw ?
With a delay of one week .Merc "IS" again a step ahead , like usual !

Just like us , the other teams saw that the Merc power is still there ! That's the problem mate .
Nothing changed for the Mercs while the Mercs still fool with the other teams ..
HAM : *I never heard of the Party-Mode* !

Mate . My memory works outstanding just like the Party-Mode !
My memory isn't fooling the other teams . But the Mercs Party-Mode does !

OK . Saying that ...My big screen is on , to watch the temple of speed ..
"Merc vs Merc " That's what the Party-Mode must be .....

Side note : The winner has already "the grinch" on his face from before the race...
He already knows he will win the race like usual . Non-stop pushed by the Party-Mode ..
Enjoy the race mate !!!

Greetings my UKM5 and MBelgium friends!
My thoughts on attempting to better equalize the grid times....

We would never consider directing ManU to play a football game with one less player between the white lines.

We would never consider directing the Seattle Seahawks to play a football game with one less player between the white lines.

We would never consider directing Usain Bolt to move his starting blocks back 10 meters.

While the FIA has implemented weight additions to some racing series to attempt to create a more equal performance profile among all teams, I do not believe this promotes rewarding the teams that have collectively maximized vehicle performance.

Teams will always attempt to find a way to exceed the limits of regulations. It is the sanctioning body's responsibility to be smarter than the students and ensure compliance.

I'll never forget when way back in the day, a certain NASCAR team was consistently in the winner's circle....the sanctioning body looked deeper and found the car had illegal roll cage wall thickness of the tubing used to construct it, thus saving weight located at the highest elevation of the car, radically changing the center of gravity (CG) and increasing it's tire adhesion and cornering speeds.

Today's mega-complexities regarding software and the increasingly technical nature of the PU in an F1 machine does create a different cup-of-tea....but the sanctioning body must create an equal playing field.

If the sanctioning body is actually allowing, or favoring certain teams, this is unacceptable, of course. When we see the FIA announce that an "understanding" with Ferrari's engine modes has been reached but it is not made public, this changes everything and needs scrutiny.

The video they just showed on the pre-race show of the 1974 British GP at Brands Hatch and the video of Jochen Rindt's car at Brands Hatch today was really awesome!

My UKM5 friend -
I thought of you and hope that you can view this!
