Hartley unlucky? That's an understatement... Glad he's ok.

The Mclaren last year was as slim as the RBR but you didn't see the benefits of it then :mrgreen:
i saw it early this year

You're not making sense. What does a mclaren rear jack man have to do with Toro Rosso or Honda or with what I said? Respond with a counter argument rather than making a fool of yourself

You want slimmer packaging. We saw what slimmer packaging did to the PU last year. Be careful what you wish for. RBR will push the boundaries next year
Probably, but thats a good thing.
Still a better methodology than saying no to the engine manufacturer when they request more room to increase reliability and performance..
TR granted that and look what we see, a huge improvement. And even after the size increase, McLaren signing Renault, probably because of the equally French Eric Boullier, are lumped with a larger and heavier unit if Adrian Newey's comments are to be believed.

That was some crash, very lucky it didn't dig into the gravel/sand pit

It looked like the top arm twisted out at the top of the wheel hub upright?
Strange!

Even now, where his well being was at risk, through no fault of his own, you still manage to find an opportunity to slate him. This isn't the time sir, we're all human, it could easily have been much worse, and it wasn't his fault.
Q: (Stefano Mancini – La Stampa) Kimi, will you help Vettel to win his championship this year?
Kimi Raikkonen: I can only drive one car, obviously.

Are the upgrades TR is brining working at all? James key is so highly rated but the car isn't looking good in most circuits. I know he has to deal with budget constrains.

Suspension failure, Pu failure, Bent steering...another frustrating non-scoring race coming up.
Never Give up.

if the money is tight, would you develop an already compromised package (renault>honda swap), or would you rather spend all available resources on the honda fully integrated chassis?

I bet this year for them is a write off, where you focus on integration issues, not try to squeeze every last drop of performance this setup can provide

In season dev have always been a killer for this team. Budget is one of the smallest in the paddock. Doesnt help they have split work centre in UK and Italy. Also maybe some crew members are new and learning as they tend to lose experienced members quite quickly.

Dont understand why they didn't just put Gasly out there to trundle around to get some idea on the failure. Now going into quali with no proper running and uncertainty on suspension. Plum last in quali gauranteed, the ferrari engine cars are quick.

Let's hope they are actually allowed to go out for quali in the first place :(

The FIA has already given the "ok" to Brendon to do the Qualifying.
The problem is to rebuild the car, and we do not know if the PU is well.
Gasly I'm sure he'll run
