@falken : does not know how to read
However the sport’s official tyre supplier stated the teams responsible for both cars had complied with the rules and the starting minimum tyre pressures.
Indeed Bio. The careful and precise wording does point quite clearly to what is going on.
At the same time, the way both these teams and Pirelli explicitly confirm which guidelines they DID follow to the letter in combination with the new guidelines on what will be checked when and how for the future […]
Quite true yeah @randommallard!
I agree with the first part of that @paeschli – it’s nice to get some of that info out to be astonished about the drive of these teams to find every little bit of pace they can. And it is exactly what they should […]
Back when we couldn’t measure stuff as precisely, nor predict behaviour, nor did we have tools to pressurize or warm tyres with the precision we can do now.
Nor did we have the safety awareness we have achieved […]
I am actually quite sure that is already monitored after the last time we had teams trying to underpressure the tyres a couple of years back, yeah @davidhunter13 – remember teams record all that info from tyre […]
sorry, misspelled at first @randommallard
– also, since teams now are to be held responsible for keeping tyre at the right level at all times that would mean that Pirelli/the FIA would be able to get access to […]
We will possibly see more cars there now even earlier then, right @eurobrun, @randomallard
Indeed. Wasn’t that also something that was supposed to happen for next year together with the change to the larger rims @markzastrow? Shame it did not make it out of the rounds.
We can’t include American basketball because the league just throws out the rule book and doesn’t enforce any rules except what shoes the players can wear. I take it the mandated shoes is because of them being pro […]

Red Bull is the best car
according to Helmut Marko
Not a very reliable source of information given that he predicted that Red Bull would be ahead of Mercedes for 2019. Marko always hypes up […]

Very good point actually Chris. It might mean that keeping the Scuderia in the sport (since it more or less pays for itself with their chunk of the revenue and the cost cap) while they put the left over resource […]
Ah, right, I was wondering about that one @randommallard, thanks for making that clear.
I do think that they have a point when they mention the sheer amount of debris on track during the whole weekend. We had […]
Well @jureo. As much as I like reading Dr. Marko trying to upset his competition (both Mercedes/Wolff and Bottas) and Russel by poking a bit (or the opposite when Wolf throws alike at Red Bull a few days back), I […]
Robert, as a tyre supplier, Pirelli is also responsible (and liable) for delivering a safe product. The saga where teams were fitting cross threaded tyres and very low pressures in pursuit of performance showed […]
Nice read, thanks for the article. Good to read some first hand content from Indycar. Yeah, Ericsson never really felt like he was a deserving F1 driver to me – I guess the teams he drove with were happy to have […]
Thank you for having a look at how O’Ward came to where he is now. I do hope we see him building further on that, be it in Indycar, or (and?) in F1 in the future.
It also reflects on the comment from Vettel […]
At Nurburgring 2005, Raikkonen’s flat spotted tyre caused his suspension to rip off. Schumacher drove his intermediate tyres through bone dry conditions at Hungary 2006 until his suspension gave way. Hamilton w […]
