Data throws cold water on hammyís claim of bendy wing improvement.

Hammy is a fantastic driver, his personality can be cringeworthy at times. He is absolutely masterclass in his ability to use words to inflict damage to opponents and has a relentless appetite to do so (very politician-like).

Vettel and Alonso can get emotional and impulsive which may come off poor at times, but itís raw emotion in the moment that is often short lived. Hammy rarely exhibits raw emotion (even in his radio messages to the team as his crosses the finish line) it is as if he practiced in the mirror each morning. Vettel and Alonso say what they mean and appear comfortable being themselves and are not searching for acceptance. I hope Hammy finds that comfort at some point.

Also clear Hass hates downforce.
Someone placed a video up that actually shows the wing bending. Your assertion is incorrect as is your math.

The delta between VER and HAM on Vmax is only about 4 km/h and even less so for PER.

The Red Bull leaps from the corners with their illegal torque management/traction control. Watch the Spanish GP again. In the last turn, the RB16-B practically leaps from the corner onto the straight and the W12 is only closing about 1/10th of a second.
