He wanted to get away from Max, lest he end up sucking hind tit like Webber did when Vettel was still there. And he was lured by the idea of a factory team.

I suspect he is probably hating life right now, but not much to be done about it. I don't see any opportunities for him with any of three top teams, sadly.

The "bigger" cars offer more protection against impacts don't they? My issues are the front wing and the rake of the cars. The organization needs to stop catering to the teams and just issue new regulations and leave it. If you don't like it (and some won't) then leave the sport! They threaten to all of the time, but think of all of the unemployed people they will create because of not liking authority.

When it comes to safety bigger cars have an advantage when encountering smaller cars but if the cars are of equal size then there is no advantage. The real advantage of a bigger car is bigger crumple zones, not sure that really applies to modern F1 cars as carbon fiber doesn't absorb much energy when it disintegrates.

I see the larger sizes really attributable to the enhanced aerodynamics, a longer car makes some of the aerodynamic tricks work more effeciently.

Everyone hopes that is true, but I have a hard time believing it. Sadly.

That is much better. The wheel tire/combo sizing is a nice improvement. Looks like also cleaned up side pods/barge boards.

I think the new car looks better. It looks cleaner without all of the appendages. Still have to wait till October to see what the final design will look like.

Fighting to regain his health means what? He might be able to feed himself in a couple of years?

Feed himself? Do we have any evidence that he’s actually conscious? Other than a press release by self-interested parties that is, which isn’t evidence of anything.

Given his purported injuries, that press release is BS, the human body cannot “fight” that kind of damage.

Agreed. I'm confused why they are describing KERS as "innovative" though, pretending it's new? F1 has had it since 2009!

Indeed. I mistook it for a news article by a serious journalist.

Something is wrong when Gasly is first and Vettel is 13th in P2. Giovinazzi and Kvyat burned through a lot of intermediates. Are intermediate tires limited to a specific quantity for the weekend like slicks are?
