    I don't want to put my foot in my mouth, but the team built a very competitive car with the tools that it had, ergo, any updates will also use the same tools that has developed a highly competitive car. So updates should work as intended.
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...

    I don’t get that tho.

    Still go to each of those circuits, still the same money. Just make it a single trip around the globe not a frantic back and forth.

    Start in the Middle East, go to Asia, go to Australia, Europe, North America and South America.

    Makes so much more sense to me.

    am I wrong to see this as an absolute disgusting demeaning reflection of F1 drivers?
    In my opinion, THEY are LEGENDS, risking their lives in their sport... what legend is Tom Brady vs LH???? or miami heat (???) or miami marlins(more????)
    these are American teams / players of note , but LEGENDS????? erm........

    I see no bending of the knee on this unprovoked RACIST murder.

    I 'm just thinking about how our two drivers interpret "A FAIRLY EFFICIENT" car?" Bragging is one thing, fairly efficient is a far cry from bragging. Fairly means almost not.

    It's kinda dumb when these U.S. sports i.e. football, basketball, and baseball require individual athletic abilities while F1 drivers need a fast car PLUS race-craft.

    Now, Tom Brady is the GOAT of a football quaterback given his age and what he has accomplished as a player.....look at his stats and number of super bowl rings. Why the meet with Lewis Hamilton is beyond me. Maybe Lewis needs a "lift-up" from the GOAT of American football but in Lewis's case, that requires a fast car......ummmmm, look at your team-mate Lewis....Russell seems to be doing quite well in an "undriveable" car and is beating Lewis in the points.

    The rest of the meets with basketball and baseball player is simply a PR show.....that's it.....while in town, meet the hometown professional athletics.

    "Legends" are schlock goods to spread and draw in the rubes.
    The drivers know as much as or better than Binotto what to expect
    and just let the boss be the mouthpiece which is a main part of his
    job and that maintains a single "party line". Bragging is declasse
    and usually practiced to deceive for and by lesser lights?

    Lewis has to remove his jewelry when in the car. Lewis has defied the rule these past races and the FIA has made Lewis aware of the rule.

    The FIA is clamping down on this 2005 rule,.

    I would guess no - time and so much more data is on the steering wheel or just a radio ask away.

    I've often noticed drivers putting their watches on after toweling down post-race and
    before getting on the podium - watches are superfluous in modern F1 and worn mostly
    to satisfy sponsors. Sponsor watches are usually large,clunky, inelegant or downright ugly
    (to get noticed?) and I doubt drivers would want to wear them under their already restrictive
    and cumbersome HANS, fireproof undies,balaclavas, helmets, gloves,etc. that are required and NECESSARY.

    Charles' ostentatious Richard Mille watch was stolen in a fan pic op during the lead-up to Imola and I wonder if
    the perp(s) have been caught? A very valuable watch but very "look-at-me" and just for showing off (and
    ripping-off?).

    You need to put Mike Tyson a true american legend in place of Brady. Life on the line in boxing for sure. Imagine Masi reffing a championship title fight and doing a Lewis on Mike!!! TALK ABOUT RISKING YOUR LIFE IN A SPORT! O K , back in the day racing Ayrton was just as dangerous!

    So Ferrari will introduce PU2 for Charles in Miami (no new hybrid system, same spec just a fresh unit).
    It was a planned change.
    PU1 will be used in Monaco again.
    Haas and Alfa Romeo also set to switch to PU2.

    Lewis says that if the FIA clampdown on the jewelry rule, he won't race and Mercedes has a reserve driver for the weekend......#entitledSirLewis.



    edit: Looks like Lewis will comply with the FIA rule about jewelry.

    Nothing to do with entitlement. Wedding rings are allowed. Either the FIA bans all the jewelries or they don't.
