If anything, this just further solidifies the fact that Mercedes is ahead of everyone else. I look at "Party Mode" as something Mercedes can do while other teams can't because those other teams potentially lack the reliability to run this during qualifying while preserving their cars for race day. F1 can remove or ban this qualifying mapping but Mercedes is so advanced and ahead, I'm sure they'll come up with something else.

Your statement is already confirmed by Toto Wolff

Toto Wolf after qualifying: "Definitely Max needs to be seen as the favourite, based on yesterday’s long runs."

i didnt even make a phrase on blown diffuser off throttle but you can correct me np..

Your exact words "pushing throttle more for back end grip". This driving style wasn't happening in the 2010s.

Whatever man. Funny/sad thing is what I said to my wife when she said she wants to go out to brunch tomorrow morning. I said no there's a race but Ferrari will probably crash or Vettel will spin so maybe we can go.

Such an incredible tribute and massive reminder of the unbelievable safety tht is inherent in motorsport today....this was unsurvivable not that long ago.

Mate . Are you sure you can you read ?

The title of the article : "Verstappen over schrappen 'party mode': "Misschien wel goed"
In English => "Verstappen about the ban of the party mode" Actually (perhaps) it is good"

Further below in the article : Het schrappen van 'party modes' is in potentie een flinke tegenvaller voor de Mercedes-aangedreven teams en daarmee een "enorme meevaller" voor de rest van het veld, waaronder Max Verstappen.
In English => "The scrapping of 'party modes' is potentially a big setback for the Mercedes-powered teams and a "huge windfall" for the rest of the field , including Max Verstappen .

BTW : "Goed" = "Good"
