    Are you sure about that? Bottas pitted a lap before the safety car which means he would have been far enough away for Hamilton to pit.

    I thought Bottas pitted due to the safety car, but I might be wrong.

    If you exclude Bottas' excellent lap, and take Lewis' time as benchmark, Mercedes would have improved by 0.120 (0.754 - 0.634). Ferrari improved by 0.151. Mercedes improved less compared to Ferrari's improvement ("stagnation").
    As willben mentioned you can't do that......besides the fact that everyone else improved and Merc improved by 0.6 (massive in F1).........without doubt even the biggest Ferrari fan would deem this a failure.........they are too busy scratching their heads for them to roll!!

    It is highly modified from the track version. No fancy aero wings, simple front spoiler, no DRS in the rear wing etc. It is part of a promotion for David Coulthard's drive of 2 June. It is modified for maximum performance at the short street circuit where you would never reach top speed.

    Renault also tried the S-H-S tyre strategy and Danny Ric is not amused.

    Brilliantly summed up by @MBrundleF1: "Unsurprisingly people are motivated and excited by people, not clutch algorithms."


    https://www.skysports.com/f1/news/24...future-visions


    And a sign of more same-same:

    And I'm frustrated with Formula 1 and the FIA because the 2021 regulations offer the opportunity for a root and branch change that the sport needs and, from various conversations I had in Spain, I don't sense it's going to happen.


    Teams are involved in the process too, and they shouldn't be because they are competitively hard-wired to think only of their own success, and not the good of the sport.


    I sense significant compromise coming, with little changing in terms overall competitiveness through the field, and nothing to attract new teams and manufacturers which is critical to the health and future of F1, just as it was in the past. We are on a heavily-moated island, drawbridge raised, and more importantly few waiting for the drawbridge to be lowered.

    Later today - the press conference starts in just over an hour - it is announced that the Grand Prix of the Netherlands will certainly be on the Formula 1 calendar up to and including 2022. They have signed a three-year deal with an option for a two-year extension. With that, the Dutch Grand Prix could be on the calendar up to and including 2024.

    I did some searching. It seems as if the RB7 (2011 F1 winners) with V8 Renault will be used in Cape Town on 2 June. Although the chassis has HONDA on it.

    Vettel used the RB7 to claim the 2011 World Drivers' Championship in
    Japan and Red Bull won the World Constructors' Championship the following weekend in South Korea. The car achieved three 1-2 finishes during the season. It is one of the most dominant Formula One cars ever built, winning 12 of the 19 races and claiming all but one pole position in the 2011 season.

    I wonder how Renault feel about this? Honda had nothing to do with that car's dominance, yet to the casual observer it's a Honda powered car...

    A casual observer wouldn't even notice the Honda emblem. In fact, they will tell people they saw an F1 car, never mind which manufacturer.

    And to be honest, I think that right now, Red Bull couldn't give a rat's aR$e what Renault will think or do about it..

    Looking at these times, and then considering the season this far, I can come to no other conclusion that Bottas is sandbagging. Lol. Seb suprisingly high @ # 9. He found some pace? Hehehe.....

    Seb was on a development tyre so his times are not representative.. But, I take your point..

    Also, the Ferrari was just over a second behind Merc, but on a C2 vs a C5 tyre. That again looks pretty good. On paper, and based on testing, the Ferrari seems to be a really good car..

    Liberty Media have reiterated their desire to host a Formula One grand prix on the African continent and revealed that they are looking at Kyalami in South Africa and Marrakesh in Morocco as potential locales.


    South Africa and Morocco have hosted Formula One races in the past. The Morocco Grand Prix filled a slot on the Formula One calendar in 1957 and 1958. The 58 race was one by F1 legend Stirling Moss. Kyalami hosted 20 Grand Prix 1967 and 1993.


    Liberty Media commercial managing director Sean Bratches made the revelations at a Sport Industry Breakfast Club event in the Netherlands.


    Its a marketplace [Africa] in which we would like to race , Bratches said.


    We race on five continents now and the last habitable continent that we dont race in is Africa.


    Weve been having very productive conversations in South Africa and to a lesser extent in Morocco about bringing a grand prix were on it. Its really important to us.


    Bratches said that having the backing of government in Morocco and South Africa would be very important.


    The vast majority of our grands prix are underpinned by government and its because it works. We shine a bright light on these cities, he added.

    Niki Lauda: Austrian F1 legend dies at 70


    BBC reported:

    Three-times Formula One world champion Niki Lauda has died at the age of 70, his family says.

    The Austrian took the title for Ferrari in 1975 and 1977 and for McLaren in 1984.

    A family statement said he died peacefully with them by his side.

    Lauda was badly burned in a crash in the 1976 German Grand Prix, but recovered and returned to racing.
