@emu55 The teams probably did do something. But it is a question of whether what they did was illegal, and it probably wasn’t under the regulations in place at the time. So end of case (probably).
@emu55 – Red Bull and Aston martin weren’t found to have done anything against the rules as they were written. The rules have now been updated the so the teams need to ensure they follow them as they are written […]
@emu55 The racing would be far worse with refueling just as it was the last time when on-track overtaking dropped massively in 1994 & stayed low until refueling was banned in 2010 when the amount of overtaking […]
@emu55 No it wouldn’t – refuelling stints in the past can and have been longer than 31 laps. Tyre technology and refuelling are independent of one another.
@emu55 I’m not in favor of in-race refuelling. Detrimental to on-track overtaking, limited strategic options, etc.
@emu55 I don’t understand what is so attractive about refuelling. I’m a new fan (since 2017) and rewatching older races it just gets unnecessarily confusing and dangerous. Like you would get to see someone […]
Full credit to him for his incredible overtaking performance on Sunday, but that last restart was arguably more an example of his aggressive style putting heat into the tyres and turning them on […]
Steve commented on the post, The red flag rule change which may prevent teams "bickering" after Azerbaijan 1 week ago
@emu55 “Could” but shouldn’t. There was no reason to not red flag the race as soon as Verstappen crashed (and Stroll for that matter).
@emu55 That is what most people thought the red flag was for. But Masi has since said that it was so they could finish under green. In my opinion the race should have been red flagged after both incidents, and do […]
Verstappen is currently trailing Hamilton by 14 points @emu55. Which is a slightly more understandable gap.

I do have to say that I have trouble following who’s who at times with indycar @emu55 so I don’t quite agree there, but I will also admit that I don’t really have a good way to view, and that often the races are a […]

@emu55 More precisely, the car’s performance and how Verstappen handled the car.
@emu55 Which incidentally would likely have prevented Russell from getting on the grid at all, because Perez would have been in that seat…
Jere commented on the post, Single 90-minute practice session confirmed for F1's return to Imola 10 months, 2 weeks ago
@emu55 Yes, a circuit that has been in F1 recently would be a better option for this experiment, but Imola is at least a better option for this purpose than, for example, Portimao or Mugello in comparison.

@emu55 Only two drivers did that when they shouldn’t have and those were Bottas and Leclerc both between the Red Bull Ring-events, and the former also between Red Bull Ring 2 and Hungary. Norris also took extra […]

@emu55 I assume Liberty have waived any circuit fees for hosting the grand prix. I’m not sure if they are actually paying the circuits in turn.

Yet from what I saw of it @emu55, and of what this very article describes, the actual choice of sim/game was not the biggest difference or issue – it was that IndyCar decided to go for it, while F1 wasn’t sure […]
