and a control if other teams aren't doing the same cleverness with getting more fuel trough the fuel flow meter.
Sorry but you are so sure, you know something that you can share with the world or are you trolling now?

Granted, but clarification could have been requested in the off season, rather than try to get other teams reined in for the last race of the season.
And you would justify a team gaining an illegal advantage all because "the season is over might as well let them get away with it" is a position they should be taking? If the FiA find something, then we should know now.

It's been a bad year, hell, It's been a bad decade. 2020 is around the corner and hope springs eternal in winter testing!

I'm rather surprised that Mercedes did not see how much oil their car was burning, that must've shown in the telemetry ...

And yea ... it would be just like Indycar where one SC leads into the next ... some of the races are just a bunch of ads interrupted by a string of SCs, but maybe they want to target that audience ... lol
They did. The word from Mercedes was that it’s consumption went up ‘very sharply’ for about half a lap before the retirement.
Was it still within the 0,6l/100km directive?
The way It was reported it was miles outside norms so I imagine not.

I don't think the directive comes into play if its an actual oil leak.

I wasn’t making that point I was just answering the question.

TBH I agree with you that if we are going to penalise for an internal failure that causes a retirement then it’s time to give up and go home.

:lol: In that case, both Ferrari's were definitely illegal !! on lap 66, they were clearly seen running way too low ride height!

Some one asked if Sainz had passed anyone on his way to P3.

Well... yes, yes, yes, 8 times yes! onboard video here:

His move on Perez was the pass of the day IMO.

Yeah lovely move.

The move on Ricciardo was full of risk, great gutsy move. Round the outside of a car with a broken wing on a super fast corner.

To me those late dives down the inside are a relative new thing. The old guard like Alonso and even the No 1 driver Hamilton would not attempt that, they would just about always decide to try around the outside once Perez had appeared to cover the inside.

Agree, Carlos said after the race for a moment he thought he´d crash with Perez. Pass of the day =D>

And agree with this too, very risky move, but this sort of moves are what makes possible going from p20 to p3
