Perhaps they can do both and keep the chicane in place for slow lap penalties similar to what they do in MotoGP.
Could be a farewell to Mick too.

Whenever Ferrari make one of these mistakes my first thought is “This strategy decision brought to you by AWS”
Like everyone else I don’t think this reflects well on Max. But for me this is a test of Horner’s leadership. Vettel ignored his orders and now Max. If Horner is any kind of leader he’d sit Max down, explain that […]

Hamilton left a car widths room. In that corner being on the inside and leaving your opponent a car widths room means that the only way your opponent can get through the corner is to lift and pull in behind. […]
Like most, I think Mick is out. He seems to be a driver who gets better as the seasons go on, which means he willing and able to learn. His people should try to get him in to a team where he can stay in the […]
For me the solution is to get rid of parc ferme after qualifying and to give the teams more freedom with tire selection. I’ve said this numerous times, lining cars up fastest to slowest and then now allowing the […]
I wouldn’t be on board with it.
If he has the courage to go to a different team, then all one can say is we’ll see. For me, being great at more than one team is one of the things I expect from an all time great.
I think a lot of people are missing the bigger picture. Once it was established that RBR exceeded the cost cap, the FIA had a choice, make the penalty so severe no team would ever exceed the cap again, or levy a […]
It may be when the cost cap died, as I’d imagine the other big teams are now deciding whether to adhere to it or not.
Teams that make parts 3mm out of compliance aren’t necessarily being intentionally dishonest and yet are penalized harshly just the same. That argument doesn’t work in F1. Or at least it didn’t.
Like many others I find the penalty lenient and pathetic. To try to mitigate the penalty by saying that because RBR didn’t knowingly attempt to violate the rules is disingenuous at best. If a team mistakenly makes […]

it’s pointless (no pun intended) to try to say that a minor infraction could not have had a major impact on the car’s performance. F1 is an intellectual endeavor and as such a small breach in the cost cap could […]
Exactly. He’s making millions per year doing something he loves at one of the best teams in F1. They’d have to drag me away with the proverbial wild horses!
Great for fans, probably sucks for the teams. The teams really need to press to have the calendar put together in a way that minimizes travel time and distance. Coming to the Americas three times makes no sense.

I voted for DeVries, but came close to voting for Mick just for his overtake of Latifi into turn 1. We don’t often get to see a proper tire smoking yet controlled overtaking maneuver anymore.
It’s not hard to understand where the conspiracy theories come from. The actions of AT seemed to be inconsistent with what was later explained. How could the team not know there was a serious problem at the back […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Hamilton to start at back of grid as Mercedes replace damaged Spa engine 5 months ago
Agreed. So many of the current rules, especially those introduced for cost cutting measures can go away and be covered by the cost cap. If you can use 20 engines per year and stay within the cost cap, more power […]
COTD. Thank you for the laugh.
