So I just saw this on Instagram, it is video footage of Lewis when he supposedly touched the redbull. But in reality he didn't touch it at all:

Actually It's just BS from the FIA ...
MAX was completely dehydrated and lost 3 kilograms during the race in Miami .
I'm pretty sure , the FIA couldn't help him with that .
The only thing he could do was drinking ASAP and a lot ...

Yes .Exactly . The dehydration took him down and when he stepped out of the car he was dizzy as well and actually he looked bad.

Tomorrow during the race there will be water enough ...

No it isn't, the weighing is to ensure drivers rehydrate back up to prerace levels. It is also there to keep an eye on which drivers lost the most amount of weight so medical treatment (iv drops) can commence if a driver did lose to much weight.


3kg is a major weight cut while doing a physical activity like driving, but it really isn't much in terms of water weight losses. Most fighters and wrestlers can lose upwards of 10kg while weight cutting, but again this is while not doing anything strenuous. But most drivers also undergo the same amount of weight loss, so it isn't something abnormal.


On a technical side, it is to make sure teams aren't playing tricks with driver weight because there is a minimum weight limit for the driver + seat.

The FIA should check the cars just before the warm-up lap if the drink reservoir is filled .
Some drivers don't fill the reservoir to lose the weight of 1 kilogram ( 1liter )
Like RIC did at Miami ...

Yeah they should absolutely mandate that every single drink bag must be filled up, and it should be a minimum of 1L.

Looks like ferrari has adopted the mercedes floor strake update design, where they make one of the floor strakes a bit taller to control air flow over the top of the floor. Really smart design and I would suspect more teams to adopt this.

Checo tried too hard and went for the pole,his entry speed into Portier was just too fast and misjudging the armco made him a passenger like Senna those years ago in that same place.

As expected Checo has had new g/box fitted together with repairs to rear wing and floor assembly and of course front suspension arms. Sainz has also had a new gearbox and body repairs and there are no grid penalties for them.

Yeah I had a feeling those side ways crashes on the rear axle would damage sainz's gearbox.
