Mate of course , Merc has found *IT*
As you know *IT* gives you a 20 km/h higher topspeed !

On the other hand : Ferrari found last year also something like a *IT*

RB will be trying out 'many' new parts for Silverstone to try and lessen the gap between themselves and the black cars.

I must admit it gives me great pleasure seeing a worried Wolff and we just need Hamilton getting confused by his steering wheel red dots at the starting gate

If he doesn't get his full 20km/h extra then he'll get fidgety being the perfectionist he is.,(and of course worrying the RB 16 will cut the air cleaner than theirs). The W11's are suited for the long curves of Silverstone but we're in for a heatwave for the weekend being 30C on Saturday.

Why rain? So Ham can gap everyone by over a second in qualifying again?

Weather prognosis can change, currently going to rain on Monday but I'm banking that the 16's aero mods will bring it level more with it's superior air management.

Ideally we need 38C for race day, the hotter it is the more worry for Merc for it to mess with their jet-mode
Good night!

The '20 Merc has more cooling to fight the lack of power in the heat ..
