Off the calendar due to COVID restrictions. Too bad, great track.

The Mercs got a new PU . Probably they just tested today ...

Sandbagging as usual !

Yes 3 engines allowed a season before penalties applied including the one they start on and two of each MGU-K and MGU-H's. RB are not changing any engines for Baku and I think Merc are desperately trying to outdrive the RB advantage with fresh engines to gain on straight what they lose on street section but it's mostly all about the wings where Merc fall down to the intelligently made wing of RB.

ALO looking good in FP2. Maybe he will be back to the form people expect of him in this race.

Perez might actually score closer or even beat Verstappen this race.

Yes, We have people in this board that actually say Verstappen is not talented, as much as you say anyone with a brain knows he is talented. Based on that, you can say we have people in here with no brain. Not trying to flame anyone, just saying.

I just hope we have an exciting race and no more incidents like what happened to Bottas. Not a fan of him but that was heartbreaking to happen to anyone.

This track is a favourite of Checo and he goes well there showing that in FP2 though Max was blocked by Mazepin on a run.

Losing the lead in both drivers and constructors Tots and his peed on crew may or may or may not be lying even more than usual, so their fans will see tomorrow what a truthful straight team the MIB is

But of course Charles drives into the wall. My gut doesn’t have high hopes for him completing the race.

I think they will both finish. My worry is how much they might side backwards.

Interesting, Bono asked hammy to run strat 12 for an additional lap. Hammy said he wouldn’t go faster, unless they needed him to run the lap. It was a peculiar comment but makes more sense if Merc is breaking in a new PU. The engine braking seemed more than normal from the onboard.

Baku tends to bring out a hyper-aggressive Checo “Maldonado”

Ouch. Max did a Leclerc but rather now than in quali and shows that Castle area is tricky, not that much a problem.

"Q1-Currently"
Hammy P1 => MAX P2 ( 0.215 sec )

As I said : Yesterday the Mercs were braking in their new PU !
So , as usual Merc was sandbagging ! That's a fact ...
