you mean max crashtappen? haha

he isn't a team driver in anyway shape or form, he was slower than ricardo for the whole race and just used dirty tactics to stop him getting by.

redbull must be rather anoyed give how many times he caused a crash this year. womder if they are regretting resigning him

Blimey, another fortunate race for Lewis (I'm not complaining ).

'Perversely', he's now ahead of Vettel by 4pts!


It was wicked, 'cause I deliberately left watching the last few laps -- i.e. at the point when the pace car went in -- till this morning. It was mad. Lewis obviosuly got the 'double bonus' of Bottas having the puncture, let alone Vettel's overshoot.

Love it lol.


However, Merc have got some serious developing to do... And Lewis needs to up his game a bit, regardless.

I know, but I can't understand why the team didn't intervene and tell him, you're way slower that Daniel, move TF over and let him go race the others.

2019 Changes

These are shown in detail in the video above, but in summary the changes are:

A simplified front wing with standardised endplates, tweaked dimensions and no upper flaps. This will encourage aerodynamicists to direct more of the flow to the underbody (where it is less sensitive to the disturbed wake of the car in front) than the outer body

The deletion of the upper flaps at the outer ends of the wing will make it impossible to create the vortices that are generated by the current, highly complex endplates to enhance the outer-body aerodynamics. This will further encourage the so-called ‘inwash’ aero philosophy of directing airflow to the underbody, rather than the current emphasis on ‘outwash,’ which is highly sensitive to the air from the car ahead and therefore makes it harder for cars to follow one another closely

Tweaks to the front wing’s dimensions and the limiting of under-wing strakes to two each side to further discourage outwash aerodynamics

Winglets mounted on the brake ducts currently play a part in directing the flow to the outer part of the body. These are banned from 2019, as are blown axles, which currently use air directed out of the centre of the wheel at high speed to energise the flow down the outer surfaces of the bodywork further back

Barge boards are lowered by 150mm (to make them less powerful in directing the airflow) and moved forwards by 100mm to make them less sensitive to the airflow being disturbed from the car in front

The rear wing endplates will no longer be permitted to have horizontal gills. These equalize the pressure between the inner and outer faces of the endplate to give a faster flow over the top of the wing for more downforce, but they introduce an extra disturbance to the wake, which worsens the performance of the car behind

The DRS opening will be increased from 65mm to 85mm. Together with an increase in width and height of the wing, this will make the DRS around 25-30% more powerful so as to allow it to be effective on those circuits with too short a straight for the current system. The FIA will also review the length of DRS zones at every circuit in order to maximise the effect of the changes

The increased height of the wing will take the 'rooster tail' wake coming off the back of it higher into the air than currently. More of the energy from that wake will be diffused into the free air around it before it returns to the level where it will be affecting the following car

We'll only find out how effective they are next year

Well, from your summary it seems like an improvement over the (seemingly wilful) turbulence generated by the present setup.
That’s got to be a positive move
Thanks.

Not F1, But Alonso again,
Looks like there is life in the old dog still.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/motorsport/44491054

Fernando Alonso will start his first Le Mans 24 Hours from pole after team-mate Kazuki Nakajima qualified fastest.

The Japanese, an ex-Williams Formula 1 driver, set a lap in final qualifying on Thursday two seconds faster than the best achieved by the sister Toyota.

The Toyotas are effectively in a class of their own at the sportscar race this year and one of their cars will almost certainly win if they prove reliable.

A Le Mans win would give Alonso part two of motorsport's 'triple crown'.

The Spaniard has already won the Monaco Grand Prix twice and, unable to get his hands on a competitive F1 car to add to his tally of 32 victories, has set his sights on winning Le Mans and the Indianapolis 500.

Only fellow two-time F1 world champion Graham Hill has achieved the feat of winning all three classic races in the history of motorsport.

Toyota have never won Le Mans, but are strong favourites this year.

Will McLaren's struggles see Alonso leave F1?
Nakajima's fastest time of three minutes 15.377 seconds around the 8.5-mile Sarthe circuit in the car he shares with Alonso and fellow former F1 driver Sebastien Buemi was exactly two seconds quicker than the team's other car, driven by Briton Mike Conway, Japanese Kamui Kobayashi and Argentine Jose Maria Lopez.

Without realistic competition in the front-running LM P1 category, the team have been forced to deny speculation that they are going into the race with a plan to ensure Alonso wins if at all possible given the publicity the victory would generate.

Alonso is the biggest star in the race but is not the only major ex-F1 name taking part at Le Mans.

Jenson Button, the 2009 world champion, will start seventh for the Russian-backed SMP team in a car he is sharing with ex-F1 driver Vitaly Petrov, who set the car's qualifying time, and Mikhail Aleshin, both Russians.

Button is racing in LM P1 but his car is not a hybrid, unlike the Toyota, and the rules dictate a number of handicaps for the non-hybrid cars compared to the Japanese factory entries.

Colombian Juan Pablo Montoya, a seven-time winner for Williams and McLaren in the 2000s, will line up 24th in his United Autosports car, which is in the lower LM P2 class, for slower cars.

Montoya has a chance to win the triple crown before Alonso, as he has already won Monaco and the Indy 500, but his car would need an unlikely run of luck involving reliability problems for all 10 LM P1 cars and many of the faster LM P2 cars for that to happen.

Scot Paul Di Resta, in the sister United Autosports car, will start 18th in the entry he shares with Briton Phil Hanson and Portuguese Filipe Albuquerque.

The race starts at 14:00 BST on Saturday.

He'd be quick in F1 with a decent car, I reckon he'll go at the end of the year.

Yeah, no other team wants him, says a lot about how people in the know view him.

At least Alonso has won something this year.
