Last 11 races will be a challenge for the runner-ups to RBR and the 19 has had only one major upgrade as opposed to the others constantly upgrading

Just like last year , MAX will be the 2023 World Champion at Suzuka .
And that's with 6 races to go !

Helmut Marko said today : The 2026 FORD PU runs extremely well .
If they want to keep MAX at Red Bull , the 2026 PU must be competitive !
MAX said : If not , I'm gone ...

So , the 2026 PU will be very competitive

More bad news for the others my friend, wise F1 veteran Marc Surer has said the 19 is just at Checo's level and it's only Max's input that makes the big difference.
It makes sense as even Newey's brilliance can only go so far and leads me to believe that Max could for instance, make a car like the McLaren which is soon to have Honda power, a potential winner.
Of course Max has an already signed contract until '28 and RBR with the '24 car readily built bar testing are streets ahead with Merc struggling being a year behind, Ferrari with the usual 'we have a great car coming even later this year' and AM running out of turbo with Krack being no magician.

If FIA want to reduce the weight of cars with new regs then why don't they do away with hybrids that pile on the weight and return to V8's, hello Sulayem.

Lets spare a thought for down on his luck Pierre Gasly who has shown he is quick but with the vices of the Alpine pushing him into bad situations and even a collision with his teammate which sidelined both of them, will be interesting when a more stable TP joins the team.

Purple...Haze
New owner of HAM's purple Pagani Zonda has probably totalled the car in a tunnel in Wales apparently losing control of it and damage all round with possible frame damage and all the wheels skewif.
These motors don't have traction control or ABS.

Seven years Merc dominated from 2014 to 2020 and hardly a pip squeak from anyone compared with the backlash from Merc,McLaren and now Red Fred on the warpath, pushed into a corner with his teams' poor pace his response is to attack RBR
It's water off a ducks back from Christian to Fred's clucking

Cost more than a few panels and a lick of paint that, the wally gave it too much welly and bounced from kerb to barrier and back again a few times.
