Red Pill commented on the post, Honda reveal details of Verstappen's Spa power unit upgrade 4 weeks ago
@bookgrub Nice write up.
With the incredible amounts of energy being produced in a single lap and then it needing transferred in a hurry (to put it mildly) into the battery cell to be stored and then available […]
@bookgrub I’m optimistic in that these rules are an attempt to find out what exactly is the cause, so it can be fixed in future seasons (effectively by making the races an improvised lab environment). Whether by […]
@bookgrub – Spot on. I’d rather have part-worn, mis-matched tyres from companies I’ve never heard of on my car than Pirellis. I can’t understand why they are putting so much time and effort into something that is […]
@bookgrub Well said. These tires are way way too finicky. Never has there been more of a reason for them to make tread wear tires for next year, or Pirelli risks throwing out the window all the hard work the teams […]
Jere commented on the post, McLaren's reduced gap to Mercedes "encouraging" for Seidl 6 months, 2 weeks ago
@bookgrub How is Bahrain less ‘representative’ than most? The track is permanent after all, unlike for example Albert Park, so definitely more representative than that.
@bookgrub I think it was rather Ricciardo not able to cope as well with the loose rear end, which surely is a huge part of stability under braking. I believe he himself said that he was chasing setup fixes while […]

@bookgrub Agree with Broccoliface. Either way, he took other people in his bubble with that too. There is a reason why he tried to hide those photo’s. It’s a sign of someone ignoring the rules. Finding a scapegoat […]
Jere commented on the post, Mercedes have produced 'their most complete car' of V6 hybrid turbo era – Horner 1 year ago
@bookgrub a lot would depend on speed, ride height, and mass of the car. Heavier car would be more impacted by the gravel.

@bookgrub sorry for the tagging failure!
@bookgrub yeah that doesn’t make any sense. The “settings” would be completely incompatible as it’s a completely different engine. I would be very, very surprised if it were indeed the case.

@bookgrub The point you are missing is RP didn’t design the front brake ducts either. The only reason they are allowed to use that design is because it was used in 2019.
So the difficulty comes in “designed the […]
MrBoerns commented on the post, Kubica: Williams compromised by damage and parts shortage 2 years, 7 months ago
@bookgrub The thing is though, it was always obvious even in 2014 that Williams was going that way. They were not a top team coming back to the front, they were a backmarker in spirit, always orienting rearwards […]

@bookgrub – good comment!
@bookgrub: Well stated.
But why stop at special tyres? Why not special cars too? Shorter, lighter, narrower with manual gearboxes and no MGU-Ks!
Monaco is about the bling, the glamour and extravagance – […]

eagerly awaiting a full-blown, competitive, high-engine-stress race to see if the data actually holds up under race condition
@bookgrub – it’s not just a performant engine, is it? :-) RBR need that performant […]
