That flat red livery is awful
Agree I want the original shiny Rosso or darker that was used on the previous racers.
Think the best Ferrari pairing were Mansell/Berger (27 and 28) in the F89, the best looking car.

About time that happened,Merc have got away with a lot in the past and it came way too late that they have fallen back all of a sudden as Ferrari did after the ''jet-mode'' saga..before their missing DAS and 10% drop in rear downforce it was allowed to continue for so long because I believe of political pressure on Fia.

For me it's also the V10.
Back in the days I noticed this guy in the Spa covered grand stand right after la Source.
He forgot about earplugs and tried to stuf his ears with napkins.
After the first lap he was laughing, you know this was pretty loud. But after several more laps he turned ashen and suddenly he had to throw up violently.

Such was the roar of the V10s. Sickening loud.

Preferences man. To me the V10 sounds louder, and I know this is an oxymoron, but deeper AND shriller at the top end.

The turbo era has been here for for 8years now that you forget how much the sound is muffled by the turbo, that and not revving to 20k. Thanks for the video reminder.

I've read that too....

Obviously instigated again by Mercedes:
https://racingnews365.com/marko-merc...stop-equipment

With the FIA acting so fast on both this issue and the previous rear wings (changing the rulebook), you can see how far the influence of MERC reaches into an organisation that should be impartial.

Really interesting rule change mid season. Impact seems to be limited to 2 teams.

First the rear wing Wolf complained about which didn't get him anywhere and now seemingly out of the blue comes this p-o-s about garage equipment.
Helmut has added ''Yes Merc is nervous.You can tell by their reaction but we're not stooping to their level''.

Seems every time hammy cries new rules come out of nowhere that try to impact not only on RB but more heavily on the eight other teams.
