    But I do think Binotto should be more combative when dealing with Mercedes. Mercedes is maybe in trouble, but he should still hype them up and turn all the spotlights on them.
    I'd be surprised if Merc was really in trouble, the usual sandbagging probably, I'll never under-estimate Merc, Red Bull or Mclaren to spring a surprise come Bahrain. Meanwhile, Ferrari are doing pretty well and not shouting too much about it.

    Unlikely, I hope!

    Short of military intervention - a non-starter; far, far too massive a risk of massive escalation! - Puketin, Russia and Russians (those who leave the Sov.. sorry, almost said 'Soviet Union' - Russia.. - for business, cultural events or sport) should face the toughest possible sanctions across the world.

    Sadly, certain countries (cough, cough..) are not as steadfast as others..

    Probs get deleted for being 'political'..

    Great time for Andretti to step in and takeover HAAS due to the Uralkali sponsorship and quite possibly Nikita Mazepin's seat.

    Andretti might not have the funds at this time due to up-and-coming events.

    It would be a "cheaper" way for him to get into F1 rather than starting a new team from scratch.

    Having 2 American teams would be nice!

    Nothing political here.
    But if US companies don't help HAAS, it will be a shame for them...
    In my eyes, it's already but that's another story

    It's too bad that wasn't news. Latifi also received death threats. We all know how big of a story it would be if it was Lewis that got threats.

    Well a few rule changes with Masi's help worked for the last WDC ! He wound up staying @ 7 WDCs. $$$$ from sponsors & attendance for2022!! 23 races !! F-1 I hope will never be boring .

    Not sure what that is.. but the Sky Sports YouTube short video is OK.

    Anyway, I think it looks great.

    As jgonzalesm6 pointed out, 2021 car. Unbelievably detailed report though. Some very interesting take-aways too.

    The louvers on the body work causing a huge disruption of the boundary layer. This supports concerns of what Ferrari's sidepods might be doing, and may prove that Ferrari have a genius solution to work around that on the F1-75

    The exhaust flow has such a big impact on rear wing downforce. Not terribly surprising, but it shows it's quite significant. Gives an idea of just how powerful the exhaust blown diffusers were.

    Telegraaf reports that Max Verstappen and Red Bull agree on a mega contract renewal. Max is set for a four/five year contract deal that would earn him around 50mio per year!

    I still think that driver salary should be part of the budget cap. At least to some degree.

    Indeed.

    Maz.. [cough, cough..] epin!

    BTW, given UKR sit. Neither Mazepin, Uralkali nor any other Russian entity should be anywhere near F1 or any other sport, IMAAHO..

    There would still have to be a figure that hits against the salary cap. Kind of like in big sports, a players salary doesn't always represent the hit on the cap.

    There would have to be a structure in place, otherwise half the grid could be drivers buying their way in.

    The way it is now, teams like Ferrari, Mercedes, Red Bull just saved like 200-300 million dollars with the salary cap, so they can afford to throw all the money they want at drivers, while the small teams will still struggle to keep talent.

    Well, the UK is banning anyone with a Russian license or Belarusian license, to include teams, from racing in the UK.

    The FIA just had a meeting yesterday regarding the Russion-Ukraine issue.

    I like the current pay structure with regards to the drivers--> "the cream rises to the top"....unless your dad is super rich, then you're just taking up space on the F1 grid. i.e. Stroll, Latifi, and Mazepin.

    Most F1 drivers(not all) start on the lower teams....and then prove themselves to the top teams like Schumacher, Alonso and Vettel.

    Why would talent not want to move to top teams? budget cap won't stop that.
