This isn't a pantomime, so I'm not going to go back and forth with you ad infinitum "yes you did, no I didn't".
Thief? Quite apt:
Not only have you plagiarised someone else's hard work, when called out, you've doubled-down and lied about it instead of owning up to it.
This is a technical forum where people come to learn, share and discuss ideas. If we are lucky enough an expert will drop by to share their knowledge. The least you can do is credit those who work hard to communicate this information to us, as a result they get to earn a living and we get to learn more about a shared passion.
Since you mention "plagiarize" you should also be careful of "defamation" and "libel". The talk about Red Bull's balance issues have existed since the RB16 of last year, well ahead of the 2021 Season Istanbul race and the balance issues of the 2021 RB16b were well known. You just seem to have assumed that because someone "reputable" has recently written about it that a member here "plagiarized" his work. That would be jumping to conclusions. Godlameroso is talking about tow and squat - those weren't mentioned in the article you quoted.
Just as a completely friendly FYI, libel (which falls under the umbrella of defamation) isn’t really relevant to anything that’s happening here haha.
Of the several elements required to successfully litigate a libel claim, there must be actual, quantifiable damages (usually measured as monetary losses suffered as a result of false accusations). Also, at least in the U.S., there is considerable deference given to people’s opinions. Otherwise, there would be countless libel lawsuits initiated by restaurants attempting to sue people for bad reviews on Yelp and Google!
Anyway . . .
What I want to know is, why did the RB not experience any of the balance/understeer issues they experienced in Hungary and Turkey, prior to Silverstone (when the new rear tire construction was introduced), with respect to the 2021 season specifically? Are there articles discussing this issue prior to Hungary?
“Balance” is a broad stroke word, but it seems the issues in Hungary and Turkey were understeer-oriented.
A large swath of races passed in the early part of the season where this wasn’t an issue, across a wide variety of circuits. And since Silverstone, the issue popped up 2x in relatively rapid succession at fairly different circuit types.
For 2021 you'd have to compare the rear wings the team used for each track, is there a correlation between the rear wing that's been utilised and the imbalance issues?
In Hungary this year they maxed out the front wing to balance the car and dial out the understeer, didn't work. Same rear wing used at Turkey? Dunno.
Also 3 further variables come into play since the start of the season:
1. Flexi rear wing Technical Directive 018-21 effective French GP
2. Tyre pressure/temperature/air humidity Technical Directive 003 effective French GP
3. Stiffer tyre construction effective Silverstone
