    Ferrari give Vettel new chassis for Spanish Grand Prix after 'small fault' found

    “There will be no particular updates on the SF1000, however Sebastian will have a new chassis, because after the Silverstone post-race analysis, we spotted a small fault caused by a heavy impact over a kerb,” said Head of Chassis Engineering Simone Resta. “It would not have had much of an effect on performance, but it was the logical decision to take.”

    Vettel out of Q2 again...

     

    The question I'm asking myself is, does he even try ? Is it his way to get back at Ferrari because they fired him? The bad car is his excuse of course, but I can't help but think that a 4x WDC could do better with inferior machinery.

    OR maybe he is just the lucky recipient of a superior car during his years at Red Bull, like how Alonso did with his 2 WC and Nico Rosberg's.

    Boring race as expected. Shitty track.

    Bottas kinda ruined his race with that bad start. And soft tires was a bad decision in the 2nd pitstop. He couldn't catch Max. Mediums were a better choice it seems.

    Vettel, 38 laps with soft tires. Ferrari strategy heart

    Re: [2020] Formula 1

    I asked my wife to guess who won the GP today. She said "Lewis Hamilton" without hesitation.

    He may have the benefit of a superior car, but still his driving and the dependability of the car are impressive to see.


    Re: [2020] Formula 1

    19.7 seconds ahead of the next car is domination.


    Re: [2020] Formula 1

    Most podium finishes. 
    And yes, I asked my wife the same question. Same response. We train em well.

    No, the party modus is not responsible for the Sunday win. Mercedes is so far away from the rest and HAM is doing a perfect job - he is in flow as he describes it. He didn`t loose time while overcoming the other cars !!!

    of course it is - when you start first and have clean air in front he can map back to a lesser setting and control the race. anybody these days driving closer than 1 seconds behind another car has issues. If you read toto's latest comments they could drive even with that mapping the whole race if they need to - Hamilton will sail easily to his next title.....


    Re: [2020] Formula 1

    That's what I mean. Then they will have a party all the time. Nothing will change, you will see.

    Ya. I believe nothing will change next quali. Mercedes will be 1-2 again.

    You are correct.

    Without party mode the other teams suffers more.

    The Mercedes engines is so strong, the other teams needed party mode on just to get close.

    Take that away they have no chance of coming close, unless of course the other team put party mode into permanent mode, which will lead to reliability taking a hit. Now one team can run at 9/10 all day long while the others have to crank it to 11/10 and hope everything stays together.

    This is a stupid and unneeded rule.

    Re: [2020] Formula 1

    100% agree - sad thing is that next year we still have "more of the same" before hopefully some change is coming. But also there I doubt it.


    Re: [2020] Formula 1

    Do the Mercedes use DAS this year? It’s not being mentioned anymore. I know its legal this year, but has it been useful to them in the races so far?

    Re: [2020] Formula 1

    yes - apparently it helps to get the front tires working quicker on the warm up lap but if it is used in the race I dunno

    AKAIK they only use it in warm up lap or behind a Safety Car.

    All depends on which team can ace the new rules like Mercedes did before.

    This is just part of the F1 racing cycle. Ever time they change stuff one team will get a head start and dominate. Then rules changed and a different team take that spot. 

    I actually wish they open up the engine formula. But use like the Le Mans energy formula or something. That would make for better racing.

    No that's an older model, the 2020 car has slightly better pace.
