Racing Point copied it to it's smallest details. Nothing impressive about that job in this regard and a shame the engineers didn't get the opportunity to build a car with their own ideas.Godius wrote: ↑Mon Feb 24, 2020 3:13 pmhttps://twitter.com/tgruener/status/1231927725113430016
This seems promising. I reckon that Ferrari will be ahead in Melbourne but RP leading the midfield firmly seems plausible.
RP have clear set of goals for 2020 – Lead mid-field battle & score few podiums. This design approach will help them achieve; it’s simple as that.
yes they have to do something, now Lawrence has taken it to the next level, but it's not his fault, it's what FIA decided, to get Haas in and help Alfa and Alpha Tauri. So now it's just that Lawrence is doing it well, with 500 staff and a full proper F1 team.zoroastar wrote: ↑Sat Feb 29, 2020 2:48 amand in order for F1 to survive, with legendary teams that do it the right way, like williams, mclaren and even renault, this bs shouldnt happen. if a team cant get by developing a real race car from scratch, they have no business being in the sport. everyone will suffer in the long run because daddy stroll wants to buy his son a mercedes seat.

i'm not saying Checo doesn't have some good qualities but Racefans' analysis puts him pretty level with Hulk:Racer X wrote: ↑Wed Mar 11, 2020 10:29 pmCheco had podiums Hulk did not in more then one car. Also in the same car that Hulk did not. So the way i see it Perez is above Hulk just like Daniel was above Hulk, i think Hulk was overrated i think people took Hulks potential into account when considering how good he was. Where as with Perez they ignored his podiums as not* relevant when considering how good he is. Stroll is in a similar position as a Gentlemen racer where you have to prove your worth with podiums and even then it might not be enough. Was Perez a pay driver... Yes he was but at this point hes been the most successful midfield driver and still people think some one like Hulk was his equal. I expect podiums from Perez and hopefully Stroll as well how many i don't know. Hulk would be lucky to be compared to being as good as Perez. The guy has taken cars with no business being on a podium to many podium finishes. I wish the same luck for Stroll. i hope those boys can stand on a podium together or at least celebrate each others.
Perez clearly raised his game after that. He narrowed the gap to his team mate in qualifying, though Hulkenberg still won that battle decisively by 35-24.
In the races it was a different matter. Having been beaten by his team mate over the course of 2014, Perez was Force India’s highest scorer over the past two seasons.
This isn’t a completely fair reflection on their efforts. Hulkenberg was the first man home more often than not, coming out ahead 23-22. And yet a podium finish still eludes him, while Perez has had one in each of the last three years.
That a fact which must rankle deeply with Hulkenberg. But it’s not something he’s likely to put right any time soon after moving to Renault.
