For those who are in support of B teams, note the conspicuous absence of Haas and Alfa Romeo.

This is one of the pitfalls of cartelisation.

I don’t think they are running whatever contraption Ferrari are using to get extra power. Though I’m not certain of it.

True but others will of already mapped out their ideas early last season if not before as the PUs are always evolving. Ferrari will of planned their evolvement around something that suddenly disappeared around the time of the US GP 2019. The key question is just how much of that planning then had to be thrown in the bin?

I feel that was the latter, but oh well.

.

How do you know that Mercedes has the aforementioned better PU and suspension?
Do you know what RBR has this year? Source?
.
Look at videos of the handling. Look at the 2019 results in slow corners
Oh, I didn't know that they drove the RB16 in 2019! #-o :lol:
Where did I say that?

Or do you honestly expect massive swings from year to year and Mercedes to suddenly suck in suspension, considering how badass they went on the suspension yet again this year? :roll:

Man, I wish you had corrected me instead. At least I would have been grateful to you. As a technical forum we should aim not just to raise our technical knowledge but speech as well and there is no shame in being respectfully corrected and I feel you did not offer your corrections in an insulting manner.
