chills__Predictions for the Bahrain GP? I literally just work here so idk
LonelyDoes anyone else hat the stupid britbonger journalist guy on drive to survive
soupSo Aston Martin living up to the hype. Wow. Even stroll finishing in top ten with a broken, post op wrist and no training. The car is unbelievable.
officechairMax and Horner are insufferable. Drove me away from even paying attention last season. Looks like this will be the same.
Jemsaside from the clear redbull dominance the rest of the grid is going mad so far
VTshredder69Nice to see Aston Martin stepping it up.
chills__Would love to see Red Bull make some Ferrari type strategy mistakes to spice things up
0sumHow is the FIA this bad, wtf was that decision-making?
BradFiAusNzCoCaIn fairness, I remember thinking in the moment “looks like the rear Jack is touching the car”. Glad they overturned the penalty though. I assume you’re referencing Alonso
officechairThis was with Zhou last year:
”The Stewards reviewed the video evidence and determined that Car 24 came into the pit lane and stopped. But thereafter, it was jacked up by the team. Article 54.4(c) requires that “whilst a car is stationary in the pit lane as a result of a penalty in accordance with Articles 54.3(a)…it may not be worked on until the car has been stationary for the duration of the penalty”. Although the team did not work on the car for 5 seconds after jacking the car up, the jacking up of the car itself would be “working” on the car, which is prohibited by 54.4(c).”
I need to read the actual regulation but it sounds like the jack touching might be okay as long as it didn’t lift the car.
0sumThe fact that there is an already clear precedent makes it even more confusing how they came to the wrong conclusion initially, especially when they had plenty of time to do their homework on it. Pretty incompetent.
0sumI do see the misunderstanding for the FIA, but they should've been able to come to a conclusion faster.
The rear jack did touch the car, but as that has been allowed before it's become de facto part of the rule that the jack touching doesn't constitute "working" on the car.
Guess it did work all out in the end, just a bit of an embarrassment for the stewards.

BradFiAusNzCoCaYeah see that’s what I was thinking. I don’t think they even jacked up the rear, it was just touching (can’t remember at the moment). Since they were so strict with Ocon last race, I was wondering how it would pan out
This video doesn’t seem to show any upward movement, just setting the jack in place.
chills__Pretty funny how the oldest and most experienced driver on the track can make an easy mistake like lining up out of position lol
omgeeitslexiyea checo is amazing but he has his downs and off days whereas with verstappen, he literally has no down days. verstappen is fine but his dad, oh my god does his dad have the most punchable face. his dad is such a ass
Jemsi mean jos verstappen beat his wife so i wouldn’t mind seeing him getting punched
omgeeitslexihe also left max at a gas station
Jemsif you think about it the trauma definitely contributes to him being so good
soupAnyone else thinking stroll is gonna have a banger year? Last lap in qualis he went purple in the first sector, then had to retire, can't remember why. Then comes the race and the guy maybe 5-6 laps in passes Carlos like the Ferrari had its parking brake on. All with a broken hand which still blows me away.
BradFiAusNzCoCaMax blew the lead in a karting race, as well, and Jos didn’t speak to him for a week. The trauma most definitely is part of why he is so good in a very fucked up way
omgeeitslexii hate jos sm. like it seems like jos only cares about max winning. this weekend max went 15 to 2 and jos seemed very mad max didn’t win lol
BradFiAusNzCoCaHe’s a very horrible manipulator. Wonder when max will separate and start therapy
SessionI just see Max and his Dad as pretty typical Dutch.
Once you realize that, the attitudes and comments displayed make a lot more sense.
BTW I feel like max has earned his dominance. He spent years single handedly battling the Merc juggernaut on track.
ajbskiFuckin lame ass thread.
f1 after Kimi left is pointless.
