Max will get a new PU for Spa

Bottas crash damaged the new third PU.

Max will have a grid penalty for Spa if the new PU is used. Mercís benefit of the rules is disconcerting.

Probably put that one in storage for later to even out the wear rate, Spa is an easier overtake.

This could have been a fantastic race from HAM vs MAX .

But BOT had once again , and as usual an idiotic start, that's why the fool ruined the whole race ...
If LANDO didn't hit his brakes , HAM was taken out as well !
Max will overcome..

Yea all those rule changes that were designed to swing the advantage away from Merc were just a ruse to lull RBR into false feeling of security.
Seems the master plan is working out.

Strange rule results.

1. Hammy crashes and destroys Max car and PU

FIA rules: hammy predominately at fault

Merc Impact: 10 sec penalty
RBR Impact: 1.8M cost, new PU, new chassis and no points


2. Bottas crash takes out two RBR

FIA rules: Bottas at fault

Merc impact: 5 grid penalty
RBR Impact: 2 PU damaged, chassis damage and 1 point.
Future impact: grid penalty at Spa for Max.





The rules aren’t working or Merc is working the rules. There should be a standard cost for equipment that comes out of the offending team budget. That would provide additional deterrent.

How many teams could survive in F1 if they were in RBR position. RBR should get the additional 5% cost exemption and merc should be prohibited from the exemption due to the above. That will at least provide some remediation.

POSITIVE !

Both PU's from MAX and Checo are been damaged by the Bottas crash in T1 !
A PU replacement is required for both HONDA PU's !

The Mercedes BlitzKrieg works really well !
If this was part of the Mercedes strategy . I would give BOT a new Mercedes contract ASAP !

Thank you Mercedes !

I thought it was PER that damaged the PU?
So now both cars will need a 4th PU

:edit; never mind.... just saw the update

Did Red Bull have to give the FIA a brown envelope stuffed full of cash to get the red flag so the team could spruce up Verstappen's car?
Thats how it works right?

Both mercs were punished. Ham gt a 10 sec penalty but raced hard to recover last race. Silverstone was both of thier issue. DIVA spices team went of track in turn 1 to defend. Wheel banged in wellington straight. Then DIVA went faster through copse, then qualy as data shows.
Today botas caused a crash and got punished. DIVA spice engines are ok. They are just moaning for now to put pressure on FIA. They want rules changed. DIVA has ovs gone over the cost cap limit.
If this happened between williams and alfa no one would care.
Diva spice team last year got the rules changed knowing thier high rake car would be at a advantage.

Will alex albon be needed to do some filming day work for new evidence
