    So far, it looks like a wet weekend....to include race day.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    so apparently Ferrari will bring a new floor here; hopefully will help with the loss of traction in slow corners we've had in recent races but i'm not betting anything on it

    OH, and fiAMG will supposedly tweak the rules a bit they've implemented back at spa for this circuit to prevent further porpoising due to very bumpy surface...anything to help Merc i guess....LOL

    so probably this will hurt us even more???? not so much red fools as they have a pretty good car which has been all season long

    The wind seems to have gone out of our sails now that Max will inevitably be WDC but I am hoping that our drivers will be in a position to challenge reliably and maintain the lead over Merc and the chasing PER/RUS/HAM in the driver standings. The weather may well have its own ideas. Forza Charles and Carlos.

    There is a rumor going around in the paddock that 2 teams breached the budget cap last season. It is said to be Red Bull and Aston Martin. The FIA is supposed to make a statement in due course.

    Its a joke that it takes the FIA 1 year conduct a review of a teams spending. No wonder Red Bull has no concerns to go over the cap this year. By time the FIA figures it out Max will be a two time champion and they will probably just get a fine. Unless the team and driver get championship points deducted, it’s a gamble worth taking to win.

    Apparently Ferrari brought the floor but is opting not to use it. I don’t know why? Maybe the FIA’s sudden change in floor height made the floor not necessary or not legal?

    Hamilton P1 in FP1, Sky must be over the moon!

    Genuine pace? The altered TD helping Merc even more? Or early times and it will be status quo come Q3?

    Some very strong sector 2 and 3 by our drivers. Max's car seems to eat the tyres much more in the last sector

    hard to keep up the enthusiasm when the outcome is known in advance. :(

    I agree! The season feels like when you blow up a balloon without tying the end before you let it go.

    well, roll on 2023; and we need to work hard on teh updates and test a lot of stuff for the remaining races as 2023 will obviously be a evolution of the 2022 car
    i doubt ferrari will change anything drastically on the car for next year as it seems to work OK; it just maybe needs to refine it a bit, make sure that PU is bulletproof and no more reliability gremlins....and for crying out loud revamp the strategy wall as that needs a LOT of improvement

    That's as maybe, but P1/2 in FP2 just about woke me up, the outcome may be pretty predictable but a good show from our boys will cheer us up. here's hoping.

    A good FP2. Honestly hard to get excited as this season has just completely knocked the crap out of me with the way it's gone but hopefully we can restore some pride in the remaining races.

    i hope so too....but honestly, prolly red fools and Max will win ALL the remaining reaces; they are untouchable at the moment, sadly.....unless they have a mechanical failure

    Paddok rumours from a Mercedes engineer's nan report that Red Bull racing are allegedly running a "grey area" biological power unit that runs on hamsters

    The FIA are set to outlaw it in an upcoming meeting of the world Motorsports council

    Max probably didn't have enough fuel if he completed his last lap. So RBR didn't want to risk of a DSQ

    So Charles misses out 70% of the dry session and still puts it on the pole. Amazing talent.
