    How can points be awarded in free practice, ridiculous. I don't like sprint races either, but F1 is heading towards becoming a complete circus with penalties and ever more regulations. It's supposed to be racing, not a strategy contest.

    AMuS

    Since the beginning of the season, the RB18 is said to have lost about 20kg. That is six to seven tenths. In the paddock they say that Red Bull is only 2-5 kg over the minimum weight now. The RB18 weight is closer to the F1-75 now, so Ferrari's weight advantage is gone.

    Red Bull was considering the option of a lightweight chassis, but this is said to not come anymore. It will come in 2023. Perhaps Red Bull is also refraining from the option because the competition was alarmed by it [budget cap].

    Over the last few months, the Red Bull engineers have specifically developed their car to increase the working window instead of simply looking for more downforce. A lot of work was done on the baffles on the front floor. Downforce is now more consistent in the corners.

    Red Bull will only have an upgrade in Singapore & it won’t be as big as the engineers hoped for some weeks ago. The budget cap and the technical rules restrict them.

    But the RB18 is so good, it doesn‘t really need any bigger upgrades.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    While Domenicalli is considering those changes, why not these as well.....

    - extra point for fastest pit stop.
    - cars doing 1 stop race get awarded extra points (at least 5 to make it worthwhile).
    - race winners have to start next race at the back with hard tires
    - throw in random safety cars 2-3 times a race - can use AI to determine best times
    - last 3 teams in points can run 3 cars for next season.

    Just to spice up the show a bit.

    Let's be real for once f1 is a farce, realisticly year in year out its a 3 horse race , now thats not much fun nor is it productive for f1.Fi needs to introduce a raft of changes for points being allocated eg pole position should score amongst starting grid with handicaps etc etc, if changes are not made and the same continues with no added incentives for fringe teams then f1 will slowly start to die and teams will pull out regardless of budget caps because the caps will make no difference.The ceo of f1 has some heavy lifting to do and to revolutionise f1.He is not just there to drink moet chandon at the end of every f1 race, my suggestion is get cracking .

    To be honest I see it way more simple than all this.
    Just think. Why not they get rid of all gimmicks ending with RS (DRS, KERS, ERS, .....), put normal aspirated engine, as it is meant to be for racing, and... behold... RACE!!!

    I totally agree with you Stefa, but that would go against the “green crap “ F1 want to go towards...if you ask me, that is a crock of $h I t...F1 was never supposed to be about save this, save that, green this green that....it’s supposed to be about flat out racing with no engine saving, tire nursing, fuel saving.....etc

    For crying out loud, F1 WAS and IS supposed to be the PINNACLE OF MOTORSPORT RACING.....

    To me this F1 show started to DIE slowly ever since the refueling was banned as well as the V8’s were retired in place of these crappy 1.6L V6’s

    And it’s gonna get worse and worse thanks to Liberty Media.....Boy do I miss Bernie when he was running the show

    At least I’m old enough to know what F1 WAS REALLY LIKE IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS

    F1 is the pinnacle of motorsports, not a charity event for woketards. If we wanted to watch that crap, we would watch FormulaE.

    F1 needs to put down the soy latter and eat a rare steak.

    The reason we are witnessing this "vacuum-cleaner" or "green" era of F1 is due to these manufacturers pushing it to the FIA whom is also agreeing with these green platforms. These manufacturers are also sponsored by big oil companies whom are also trying to be carbon neutral.

    Heck, Vettel criticized the FIA for "giving in" to the fly-over at Monza by the Italian aerobatic team because of not being green. What Vettel didn't realize was that the planes were using 25% biofuels as their gas. Now Vettel has to apologize to the President of Italy, whom was there, for making his statement. Activists in F1 are such a nuasance but more so Vettel is a hypocrite due to the amount of planes it takes for F1 to fly cross crountry.

    Now, what I propose is that Liberty stand up to these manufacturers and the FIA to come up with a formula where the cars go naturally aspirated and use biofuels as the gas so we have zero carbon emissions......but that won't happen and even IF it did, these manufacturers (Mercedes, Honda, and Renault) would pull out of F1.

    Btw, I think WEC i.e. 24 Hours of LeMans is the pinnacle of motorsport (LMP1 class). 2 electrics motors harvesting and driving the front wheels and an inline 4 driving the rear wheels.....for 24 hours straight....at speeds over 220mph down the Mulsanne.

    Get rid of "Let him pass or lose your seat!" I believe Liberty will make it easier for new drivers to get a F-1 seat regardless of their nationality! All the hatred toward Luis by F-1 fans because he's a British driver is terrible. 103, 7 anyway!

    Montezemolo warns Ferrari: “Politics in Formula 1 is essential to support the team”

    Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, former Ferrari president, stressed that politics is an aspect to be constantly taken into consideration in Formula 1, an aspect which is one of the many ways a team boss has to use to protect his men and their work.

    “In this sport you need passion and dedication. You have to be there every day and every evening. You have to do a lot of politics to support your team, because others do. You have to be strong to resist and preserve your team”, the words of Luca Cordero di Montezemolo interviewed by French sports newspaper L’Equipe.

    A warning from the former Ferrari president to the current people in charge of leading the Maranello team, not to neglect the politics, which often leads to making decisions capable of altering the fate of a season or a regulation cycle.

    Robin Raikkonen won his first Jr Karting race yesterday.

    The Force is strong with that one.

    And then along comes Masi ! Now that was as sure a disgraceful way to alter the faith of a season! Unforgiveable.
