Formal warning for Wolff and Vasseur for their words at Las Vegas press conference. So a non-story really

What do you think about this two design of posterior wing?
The downforce isn't the same? Indeed the DRS' effeciency of Alonso isn't minor than DRS' efficiency of Stroll?

The car designs are also a factor, Bahrain for example has thrived with.the new turbo hybrids.

As for abu dhabi you have overlooked the redesign of the entry to 5 and the removal of the triple corner at 9 they have made significant changes to improve the racing, the 12-15 is around the hotel that won't change.

If Vagas has shown anything, is that a simple layout is better for the show.

Abu Dhabi would be lot better if the section between turns 12 and 15 were gone.

Since you said “literally every race” I am going to make it easy for you. You just have to post audio fragments Max swearing from the last 10 races each here. Didn’t happen did it.

Press conference is something else than a race. Yelling something at someone during a football match is quite different from the same player making a statement in the post match presser. Let alone the manager.

They got creative. Max got 5 seconds and 2 penalty Points for a round 1 Turn 1 Racing incident.
Guess the Racing Stewards changed the standard. They’re going to penalize round 1 turn 1 incidents…🤔

Toto seems to be going through some sort of meltdown due to the team struggle, at times he is sounding like a child who is trying to defend himself. I am not sure if this image will go well with Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedez Benz or even sponsors.

I think the next season of drive to survive will be painful to watch for Merc.

in case anyone was wondering about it as well: It will be Dennis who drives Verstappen's car in FP1. Hadjar takes Perez'

2nd in the standings going into the last race of the season, Hamilton guaranteed 3rd as the best non RB driver.
Sponsors happy, Daimler AG realistic enough to know they can't win every season. You only need to look at 2010-2013 to realise this, but where's the fun in that when Toto has a foot in mouth moment. And sure, there have been multiple Toto moments.
It could be worse though, Toto could give random Daily Mail interviews about a direct competitors (under contract) driver contract negotiations. As it turned out Vegas wasn't a "black eye" when it produced better racing than the vast majority of races this season.

But where's the fun in that? Rather just keep battering Toto for swearing or saying what he thinks.
And then deploy double standards as to when the F bomb should be criticised.
Heaven forbid anyone say this.
That would be bad. They should be at their best behaviour representing their teams to the highest standard.
It would be outrageous if they didn't, right? :lol:

Russell looked really strong, especially in s3. By far the fastest there.

Good news. The 3rd point won't allow RB to start developing the 2026 car earlier than the others.
