@alec-glen Fair and accurate comment, imho.

@alec-glen I’m sure I read somewhere that Toto Wolff had indicated that their quali-mode equates to 25 laps of engine life—meaning they’d be able to run higher performance during the race.

@alec-glen Yeah that trading off reliability for performance comment is pretty strange. There are a tonne of things on the car that trade reliability for performance – everything from engine to suspension, aero […]
Let me borrow your tinfoil hat for a second :)
Some of the Mercedes guys that are unhappy with Toto’s management style could have noticed Racing Point guys with their 3D camera inside Mercedes wind […]
@alec-glen Rake is only one concept and I think Mercedes has used high rakentoo. I’d be surprised if nobody has copied anything from the hybrid Mercedes and have only focused on RBR cars and philosophy.
I d […]
@alec-glen You mean any other bloodthirsty nobel peace prize winner? I need to do more research.

My biggest gripe however is the timing of it, F1 is the only major sport that introduces rule changes mid season, it’s bonkers.

I agree its bonkers, but its part of the sport, and has been for a v […]
@alec-glen F1 is the pinnacle of motorsport, but not in everything. It must be frustrating for young drivers to go up the ranks of the junior series, only to find out that it’s not always that much fun driving an […]
Ugh @alec-glen – I guess that does help explain why they kept their downwards path going so solidly for so long (since 2005, or even 1999?).
I fear Jon Bee below is quite right about where the core of the issue […]
And in addition @alec-glen, I recently heard Nico Rosberg (I think in his youtube podcast that talks with Toto, but not sure) recount a time when he said the atmosphere at Williams was quite brutal, with him being […]
@alec-glen Makes sense they are for now though. Renault have had many power unit issues already even in only three races. While Honda, so far, have been quite reliable.
Wonder what will happen if Honda doesn’t […]

@alec-glen wrong. Watch Valencia, Singapore, Abu Dhabi, And you’ll see that the Williams and Maldonado had great pace on those particular days. It was inconsistent, yes, but not lucky.
