No. The RB-FIA ignored it. Go and look at the start of the race.

Just like they were ignoring the Bendy Wing until Sir Lewis called it out. Now they are forced to do testing to cover their butts from approving the RBR cheating malfeasance. Next is the illegal traction control...something RBR has experience with from the EBD days.

You're incorrect.



They offered him seats 2 times!! LOL

His father said that racing against not-then Sir Lewis wouldn't be good for his career.

I've seen the start with the RB wheel within the boundaries and behind the allowable white line and I'm sure the wings are in order being ''cleared already''. Just hammy and Wolff panicking when Max is stepping on their lawn

You don't know what you're looking at. The wheel belongs on the yellow line. he is in front of it with no part of the tire touching the line.

There an allowable small gap before a sensor sounds a warning in the stewards room and obviously it didn't but nice try

Neither ol' Phil Massa nor Max have a WDC...but at least Massa was WDC for about 30 seconds. Max hasn't even been the WDC for even that long.

True. RB is fast, the Merc is fast. Merc continues to get faster lap over lap and consistently trapping 10-12 km/h faster on the straight. RB engineers need to find a solution for the speed drag. Despite swapping to the low drag front wing, the speed delta remained. Merc has dialed in a perfect downforce/top speed balance. Seems clear that Honda is lacking pace. Data throws cold water on hammyís claim of bendy wing improvement.

Hammy is a fantastic driver, his personality can be cringeworthy at times. He is absolutely masterclass in his ability to use words to inflict damage to opponents and has a relentless appetite to do so (very politician-like).

Vettel and Alonso can get emotional and impulsive which may come off poor at times, but itís raw emotion in the moment that is often short lived. Hammy rarely exhibits raw emotion (even in his radio messages to the team as his crosses the finish line) it is as if he practiced in the mirror each morning. Vettel and Alonso say what they mean and appear comfortable being themselves and are not searching for acceptance. I hope Hammy finds that comfort at some point.

Also clear Hass hates downforce.

Someone placed a video up that actually shows the wing bending. Your assertion is incorrect as is your math.

The delta between VER and HAM on Vmax is only about 4 km/h and even less so for PER.

The Red Bull leaps from the corners with their illegal torque management/traction control. Watch the Spanish GP again. In the last turn, the RB16-B practically leaps from the corner onto the straight and the W12 is only closing about 1/10th of a second.
