In 26 new cars are built then the cycle starts again - but with Ford and Newey making the car it should be there or thereabouts!

it doesn't make sense. Danny Ric is hired in the summer and then Sergio does this week in week out after being around level on points.

just doesn't make sense ....

if I were Sergio i'd be watching my steak and my coffee ...

I just think that the evolution of their cars from the start of the season to the level that VER likes leaves the other drivers struggling to be able to handle the car at the limit. None of Maxís teammates have been able to keep up once this point is reached. I think how easy VER makes it look gives a false impression that the car is easy to drive fast. What is happening with PER shows us that it is very much the opposite. Last year after a decent start VER blew him away once the car was set up to his liking. Same thing this year except the car is even more on the edge now to keep its potential advantage over other teams. Now whereas PER just couldnít match pace last year - this year itís even harder to drive 10/10ths and mistakes are being made (tough conditions arenít helping either). I do not think RBR believes RIC is the answer either - he hasnít been competitive for a few years. But I think they have gotten very tired of PERís act and you canít piss off VER like he apparently did somewhere along the way. If you going to have a number 2 keep botching things then it might as well be someone that you like and has a huge following.

The unpredictable wind is/was like a bummer in this 3rd FP session ...

They're not allowed to.
And judging by the results, they keep to that rule

But somehow I think AT is suffering from that rule too much.
I mean, you see both McLaren and AMR building cars that are clearly inspired by what they've seen on the RB cars.
But I'm sure that if AT would do that, all teams would be on their hindlegs saying that data is shared.

At least Checo made it to Q3 for a change
He has the car to win, just as Max...

Nice to see that the McLaren updates also work here.
It looks like they're the team that's gonna rival RB in the 2nd half of the season.
