    The best "tech trick" Mercedes used at Silverstone, was using the pit maneuver perfectly against the main rival. And... getting away with it.

    Mercedes Tech Trick: Pit maneuver at Copse Corner with full speed.

  • Leonardo Costa

    Well.. I cheer for Max but that was a result of both drivers personality. None of them has historic of giving up but lately Max is being more aggressive then ever and in that case he's jumped radically into the Hamilton's car end left no time for any reaction from Hamilton's part. It's impossible to judge that case from footage because the footage doesn't show all the involved forces over a racing car cornering side by side over 260 km/h. The massive "cut" performed by Max was unfortunately the biggest component that brought the final format and taste to the cake.

    En la cámara onboard de Max Verstappen, se ve más claro que Hamilton lo toca, el piloto de Mercedes tenía que frenar y no lo hizo. Una pena que de esta forma quiera ganar el campeonato del mundo, creo que la FÍA debería seguir investigando la acción

    Where are Red Bull getting their traction from, I've noticed before on the exit of tight slow to us corners how quick the Red Bull puts the power down. For sure the overhead shot of the sprint race start, it stood out a mile, bothe Red Bull Cars left the rest of the grid stood still.

    Funny thing is. Aero is only 1/4 of what makes a car fast. And its the only visible part that you see. Im sure teams bring dozens of updates to the weight distribution, power, and suspension every week.
