  1. An open question:

    How simple do you think it is for an F! team to cheat by secretly testing their car?

    1. @sonnycrockett More or less impossible to test secretly given how many people running a single F1 car requires. There’s also the transportation from a factory to a track, etc., so the FIA would quickly become aware of a secret testing attempt. Therefore, not so simple, I reckon.

      1. I think the way that Pirelli allocates and tracks every set of tyres is another safeguard (or barrier, depending on how you look at it).

  2. Am I mistaken or is it Takuma Sato rather than Graham Rahal in the black RLL?
