Bottas: "Annoying" clutch behaviour cost me Barcelona win
"On the first lap I felt a vibration in the clutch and that's why the initial getaway was really poor," said Bottas.
"It was kind of biting and releasing, really quick frequency.
"It's really annoying. A lot of hard work this weekend went down with that.
"Obviously I'm not blaming any individual in the team and as we are a strong team we are going to investigate why that happened.
A. At least they didn't glue his pedal to the floor B. Can't wait for further epic Mercedes drivers battles. C. Sounds like famous Hamilton's mind games mentioned above didn't work in Q (0,6s) but enchanted his clutch
Norris takes out Stroll in another move that was worse than Kvyat's (drive-through) but since he's an X from team Y stewards put their heads in their usual places and babble about predominantly as if not disappearing was enough of an invovlement. Enough of this farce.
BTW People whinging about Ferrari don't understand simple facts repeated for a decade. A. Just like McL, RB and many other teams they don't have to achieve anything to justify their involvement in F1. B. It's not a sport but cheap marketing exercise where you end up with the right nationality new Z and ancient fan favourite and lose everything year after year with no consequences. Or with Gasly, Hartley, Albon etc. Imagine Nba's GM making decisions like that and keeping the job.
BTW 2. What exactly do we know about Leclerc's pace, tyre management, craft, stregths, weaknesses etc.? Complaining about "set up" in !&%$... Barcelona, the track they know inside out is the new addition.
