Naturally its understandable you support your own team like any other fan would but the steering wheel in question and Bottas's reaction to it is certainly not normal as regards a pertinent explanation.

he was locked what time red lights ll go off and his steering wheel lights went off as he changed the steering wheel earlier because of same problem..

and the more important part..
deciding when to start the race and all lights of sequence is all manual.. so any conspiracy theory that telling Merc's know when the race will start is all empty.. im posting an example below..

"F1's race start sequence is controlled by permanent starter Christian Bryll, who took over that role at the Bahrain GP when the duties of former F1 race director Charlie Whiting were split between Masi and himself.

But Bryll has no restriction on the timing of when he decides the lights go off, as F1's regulations over the start procedure are open-ended on this front.

Article 36.9 of F1's sporting regulations states: "Once all the cars have come to a halt, the five second-light will appear followed by the four, three, two and one second lights."


https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/14...fia-tolerances ..

each race, lights go off differently and the whole point of this to keep starts all organic on drivers reaction times its like this for many years.. i dont think there is another way to state that "automated lights on dash thing" is just funny my friend unless Merc' is in the brain of who pushes a button to let all lights off.. and if Merc' is in the mind of that person a Nobel Prize should be on the way for achieving crazy psychic powers..

even 0.1-0.2 earlier is legal my friend.. just like Bottas' start last year cant remember which race that was.. i remember vividly some great starts from Hakkinen as well.. probably you remember also those..

all teams are/were free to develop new things my friends especially if you think the financial possibilities of Ferrari and Renault its more like a shame for them for not improving their cars.. when you go deep into checking lap times Ferrari is slower even last year's Merc.. wow..

Yesterday I heard : "To keep everything reliable" the Merc PU is running only on 80 % of their full potential.

This means this season is now already over ! Yeah , by the new ( suspicious ) things ....

"HAM vs BOT" = "Silverstone" 1 & 2

Mate . That's really exciting !

I think we all already knew Merc was a lock this year and next, if you exclude them though, this year has already been exciting as heck!
I love watching RP, McLaren, Renault, TR, and Ferrari all fighting.

Of course mate . But what we/I want to see is a close battle for the podium with a gap of a few seconds .
By this I mean , not always the 2 same cars who can lap the rest of the field in every single race .

Yeah mate . The battle for the podium comes secondary .

VET (if he didn't) should have received massive points penalties against his FIA F1 Superlicense for the idiocy of RAMMING VER from behind....this was not a racing incident....it was a public assault.

I'll go with that and dope VET single handedly ruined any challenge that Max may have put up to challenge the Mercs. It's all very well accepting responsibility and saying sorry but none of the top drivers should be doing those boy racer errors.

I think that's what all fans would want but all I see is an express elevator to another season of a one team domination...going down.

Other teams just need to step it up and challenge the Mercs.

Spend less time complaining about being slow and do something about it.

Well mate that's what RB-Honda actually did in the last 8 months (24/7) and during the winter stop in Japan !

The million dollar question is : What Merc did to make their PU so powerful while they were in full lockdown ?

Challenge ? Tell me how ? When you know that the Mercs are 15-17 km/h faster on the straights , even without the Mercs Party-Mode !

I'm not complaining . I'm just wondering ...

Maybe RB shouldnt have gone with an engine supplier who couldnt get it right for 3 years.

Some nifty by-pass somewhere, when you take those PU covers off it's like a mechanics nightmare.

They did their work in the off season and once they stopped developing last year's motor.

Honda had a location advantage during lockdown so they had even more time to R&D.
