I'm thinking about that North Sea wind and the sand blowing in from the beach,Max seemed to handle that well in his test drive of the older RB

Belgian F1 Podium....

Perhaps....

P1: VER
P2: HAM
P3: LEC

P1: RBR's straight line speed dominance could prevail at a track where there are multiple terminal velocity opportunities.

P2: MB's long game as it relates to reliability and race strategy always makes it a threat.

P3: Ferrari's anticipated release of significant power upgrades could place the red car at the sharpest end of the grid.

Whatsayyou??

Meanwhile at HONDA Japan ...
The Japanese HONDA engineers are still looking to repair the PU cracks from MAX's Silverstone PU .

If the PU can be repaired a grid penalty can be avoided ...

In short : The Red Bull PU situation is very dramatic !

Once again ..."Thank you Mercedes" !

Slight crack detected somewhere by an engine mount post, some skilful crack fill and strengthening rewelding required there or already done by Honda Japan techs.

If I was Horner or Helmut..

If MAX gets a grid penalty by a new PU , the best moment to take the grid penalty is at Monza (september-12) during the next sprintrace .

In this case : A sprintrace can be a help...

It's said Horner and Helmut are opposite characters though on this if new PU is needed then they should agree on it.

The Merc's rammed in the last 2 races 3 Red Bull cars and 3 HONDA PU's into the garbage dump !

Stealing victories wasn't enough ...

The damn hypocrites !!! It's a shame for motorsports .
Yeah right ! Then "YOU" know who "YOU" are !!!

Significant power upgrades? I'll believe it when I see it

Thinking I read somewhere Ferrari was waiting till Italy to install upgraded engines but could be wrong

I'm pretty sure Bottas would score more points in a RB car than in a Williams car.....

If they discard Perez it should serve as yet another reason for any respectable racer to decline such an opportunity. Let them pull up another brainwashed little boy, not play with another mans career. No way anyone worth their salt reaches their peak with a new program in half or even a full racing season. If that were the case the drivers would all shift annually.
