I addressed both points, gentlemen. Autosport also agrees.
Sorry to bring up but I think you meant Austria 1 as concerns BOT's power mode, Australia was cancelled at the last moment when McLaren first withdrew.

There are also the many wins from Austria 2 to Spa even for GB 70 (won by Max) where the boost button was definitely plus with HAM and minus with BOT
well can be my friend whats wrong with this if they obsessed with success? same way Red Bull is trying to make Max the youngest champion.. and its for marketing purposes.. cause Red Bull gives you wings..

Quali modes delete in force.

Monza fast approaching so the teams will be more or less using the same aero as at Spa with a few tweaks and of course the all important quali mode delete comes into force so not much rest for the team workers, it means only one mode will be allowed for the race with measures in place to ensure teams stick to it.

4:35 tells why Bottas couldnt use different mode.. Bottas had to catch Lewis without higher mode just like Lewis wasnt using it either..

It's why it is used in other forms of motorsport to keep things on an even keel and I don't see F1 as a special case not to implement it.
