Ferrari spent a token for a MGU-K upgrade.
VET gonna get hit with a penalty for taking a new trans.....

Rosberg again is puzzled with the performance advantage that Mercedes, yet again is showing........:rolleyes:
Can we please cut the shyt already? You never hear that from Hamilton. Hmm, i'm su surprised at how we're dominating. again :laugh:

They are expecting a number of records to fall this weekend. Perhaps another one on how HAM's stuff keeps breaking? Lmao

I, for one, would love it if RB takes it to Ferrari this weekend.

Btw, i just delivered some equipment to Fredricksburg, then headed all the way down to Mission. Hot as hell down that way.....:(

Yup, washed the wife's car at 10:00 am this morning and I sweated like a pig in the sun.

Manor starting 12th? I wonder who Wehrlein is racing for next year because it won't be Manor that's for sure.

I only saw the last 5 laps and that was about as good as it got. Loved to last lap charge from HAM and subsequent ROS faux pas. One of the cameras was perfectly placed to show how far he went out of his way to push out HAM! Boy, did that bite him in the ass! I'll say it again, it's that sort of lack of intelligent driving, when it matters the most, that will cost him the championship. HAM is inching closer and closer to his next title.

Rosberg got 2 points on his super license. I guess Merc's story that Nico's braking was failing was a pile of poo. I don't think he'd got the points if telemetry showed he recently had a braking issue develop.

I recall seeing brake dust from his car about a lap before the touch. I believe the brake issue, but also watched the replay in slow motion several times and you can see how even with his brake issues, he never attempts to turn his steering wheel to avoid HAM. In other words, it's painfully obvious how he did not attempt to avoid a crash. In my opinion a justified penalty.
