At first there were as the crowd couldn't see the implications of a 51G impact.

Anyway, afaik there is something wrong with the Lewis' oil/pressure system.

As I said earlier, banked corners and oil tank pickups can cause a few headaches. Vettel and now Hamilton had oil pressure problems - and both use the same engine and oil tank

Ahh okay thanks for putting that on, probably the banked section is a problem for them.

this track reminded me of Tsukuba.. cars looking like they re lapping in a go-kart track.. looks fun though some corners doesnt look like that safe for todays standards but lets hope no crash ll happen.. some run offs look like it can launch cars into the sky.. especially the first banked left one on the first lap.. so easy to slam into the wall there..

looks like Ferraris will be fast on quali.. Mercs are not bad at all as long as PU lets.. this can be a good race..

Per Ted Kravitz, Sir Lewis was running a Spec 1 engine for FP-2. There are no problems with the racing engine!

Well my friend , actually there are problems at Mercedes regarding the cheating with their hidden air cooling system .
I heard It's a mess to find a new location for HAM's air temp. sensors in the plenum.

If it is true ,the whole Mercedes PU needs a new torque and power mapping .

Personally I think It's true , because we all know that Red Bull and Ferrari have reportedly lodged a complaint with the FIA over Mercedes' alleged "trick" to bypass Formula 1 engine regulations.
Mercedes is deceiving with the sensors from the PU's air temp. And this is strictly forbidden by the Formula 1 engine regulations !

One thing is for sure : The cheating Mercedes cooling system adds more power and torque when they pull out of a corner with lower rpm's .
Red Bull and Ferrari have showed the Mercedes telemetry and navigation data to the FIA .

Another thing : The Mercedes air cooling trick or cheating trick was never approved by the FIA !

As I said : Mercedes was already cheating at Silverstone !
If I was the FIA president (Jean-Todt) the Mercedes race results would be questioned ASAP at Silverstone , the Hungaroring and Spa !


The Mercedes flexible front wing is also just a thing ...

So whatever you might add about him I'm fine and it's your (and my) opinion. And they differ.

Because a F1 driver gets lucky, in your opinion, 7 times to win a WDC

That makes sense

Sheesh, go away for a couple days on a golf trip, only to come back to the same:

Merc cheats
F1 is owned by Merc
Lewis is lucky
Max is god

Did I miss something?

I’ve believed for some time the worst thing that has happened to F1 in recent history was Rosberg retiring. Hated to see it happen.

Hate to say it as well, this is likely going to be a very boring race. Not sure where you can pass on this track, qualifying will be everything.
