"Yes, we've had this issue on the car and I'm disappointed, but on the other hand, there were plenty of positive signs throughout the whole weekend."
"Our qualifying pace and the new package worked as expected, which is not always a given, and everything was working well."
"Then there is our race pace and tyre management. We've been struggling the last three races compared to Red Bull, and in Barcelona it was strong."
"In those situations, it's good to also look at the positives and there are plenty."---Charles Leclerc

Bye to Merc's top speed when they lift the rear to save the PU's from frying and maybe the damage is already done. Maximum wing at Monaco with shallower gearing and less air entry into rads and PU compartment may intensify their predicament with hot temps again.

This is likely inaccurate.

1) Why would they increase rear ride height on a low speed track? There's no logical reason to increase rake at all on a ground effects based car, unless you're doing so to compensate for porpoising due to squatting of the car, and since merc solved their porposing there is no need to do so. Also it is a low speed track it is unlikely they even need to raise ride height to decrease load.

2) Low speed track also means low power demand for alot of the lap so less heat generation, they can also open more cooling slots in the car that they didn't have in barcelona. The w13 has further cooling slots by the team viewer logo that they could open up for additional cooling but chose not to do so in barcelona.

3) Gear ratios are fixed....

But apparently Ferrari vetoed this limit because the Mercs and Honda PU are said to not tolerate the warm fuel as well as the engines from Maranello.

The teams do not agree on when it is illegal to use fuel that is too cool. The rules say: "When the car is in use". So when the car is used. Aston believes this moment with stepping out of the garage. Ferrari sees the fact that the car is being used as soon as the engines are started.

Max’s DRS was a new prototype that weighed less than Checo’s. It failed.

Russell was moving a bit in the braking zone on both Checo and Max. This will likely be less tolerated in the future.
Russell was definitely driving dirty with his moving from the far left to the middle to cut off Max and give him nowhere to make a move. He knew he was getting passed by Max no matter what - he just does not have Max's pace on track.

LEC turbo and MGH-U damaged and not repairable. That's going to be another swap for the next GP.

I'm pretty sure he said ham had the fastest race pace, not the fastest car. I'm also not sure if this speed trap is inaccurate because the delta between Lewis and George is quite large which is a sign of abnormalities.

Here is an image of the mclaren with flow vis on it, it is a really really intriguing image showing some really detailed flow patterns on the body and floor of the car. You can also really notice the flow down washing over the body and then converging in the coke bottle area and going to the rear diffuser it is really facinating. You can also see how the rear suspension arms shape the air flow and direct it up and into a key region between the upper and lower wish bone, very cool. Too bad images like these are hard to come by and some teams like merc use uv flow vis so it is pretty much invisible.

LOL - anything to help Hamilton's gigantic ego.

Probably told him the same when he finished 14th.

Hmm, going into Spanish GP both Ferrari's were on 2nd turbo and MGH-U. Seems like Leclerc will be going to 3rd and final units before penalties.

But the important part is it's no longer costing them performance (well it's still a bit costly in some corners), and the intensity is much less than before. I'm sure it'll get better as they refine the floor some more.

Really? Both ferrari's already were on their 2nd complete PU?
There's still 16 races to go...

Edit: indeed I see. ALO is already on his 4th PU wtf:
https://maxf1.net/en/2022-f1-power-unit-elements-usage/

Max still only 1.

Both alphatauri's also on their 3rd. Are they running a way more aggressive ecu mapping?


I know you can take those penalties whenever it suits you best, but how close the championship is going it's very close for LEC (or VER) to take any penalty.
