Question for everyone If we go ahead and assume Racing Point just copied to fast track their development of this years car. So if we just assume they did not sit and scan and create their own car *Inspired by the W10* but rather they just out right got a copy of all of it from Mercedes.
*QUESTION:* Do you guys think they did all this to save time and be able to focus on the 2021 car? So they can have a smaller team of engineers for this years car?
Basically im not thinking about this season im thinking is this a move to help boost their chances NEXT season.
Will they even develop this car at all?
Or will they just run a W10 assuming its enough to get them in the TOP-5 easily. and just Focus on 2021?
Was this like a "Hey let me copy your homework so i can study for the final exam?" situation?
it's just what FIA arranged to have happen a couple of years ago when they relaxed the Listed Parts list and allowed Haas to use the Ferrari wind tunnel using seconded Ferrari aeros and even supply the aero concept
So i disagree with it, but it's not about Racing Point or any of the teams, it's Liberty and FIA offering F1 for F2 money, to get more teams in.
So now it's just this testing showing up where that was always going to lead. It was okay while Dietrich kept Torro Rosso well behind Red Bull and Haas couldn't do development and Alfa weren't that great, but now Lawrence has invested in what was already a very good team AND they're doing a Haas model on top, with a top tunnel, and they're next door to each other, RP and Merc
