This'll be the make it or break it for merc, I hear they were waiting for this race specifically to release their major updates to fix porpoising (because they have prior data from this track to help with correlation on whatever results they get). So if their updates don't work at all they are screwed this season and likely will just scrap any further attemps, if their upgrades work but don't 100% eliminate porpoising but fix it enough to get them back in the fight it will be good news as they have more data to work on correlation and upgrades, if it completely fixes their issues and they get that 1 second a lap improvement the zero pods were supposed to bring then they might have a shot at the titles.

On a side note I thought the ground effects on this rc car was really cool:



- The tunnel itself was probably not designed very well and defintely not in cfd so the results weren't super extraordinary but it was very cool.

To improve I thought this could be done:

1) Model the design so it produces optimal downforce levels with the air flow expected at the speeds the car would drive, not the air flow from the leaf blower which could exceed the speed of the air flow when the car was driving.

2) try to make the tunnel hug the bottom of the car more so there is more volume in the tunnels, this will allow more freedom in design.

3) Make it so the car doesn't bottom out so much that it is riding on the tunnels instead of the tires.

4) Front wing might be too low and reduces air to the tunnel. Intakes to the tunnel could be larger too.

5) diffuser could be even bigger and extend further backwards to faciliate the smoother integration of air to boost the efficency of the tunnel.

Overall really cool car and I would love to have one of these to mess around with, too bad I don't have a vaccum former.

Max has given his backing 100% to Checo as he enters talks for a 2023 contract with RBR. I really can't see anyone else come in at this stage especially as the 18 suits Checo much better than the 16B did but you never know with Marko who is known to see things in the cold light of day though I can't see one reason for him to change out.

More bad news for HAM my friend,Jackie Ickx has spoken out that HAM's time may have come. When someone that has been used to being on top starts to slide then it's impossible to come back and there so far appears to be no magic formula for his Merc with Russel coming out stronger though with more pain punishment to his body for driving that 13 on the jumping limit all the time.
Even with an improved less jumpy car Ickx says it will be hard for HAM to come back with the new generation of sharp shooters as goes in the saying 'once bitten twice shy'.

Nyck de Vries (merc formula E) is going to get some practice time in the Williams in FP1.
Why in the Williams and not in a Merc? (he's already driving for merc, and was last year frequently in the merc paddock).
Is Williams going to ditch Latifi? (last year outclassed by RUS, this year by ALB)
Can they spare all those millions?

This years regulations dictate that teams give other drivers from outside F1 the chance to drive some practice laps in FP1

Strong chance they ditch Latifi, he has to be amongst the slowest on the grid and he has been there quite a while now. Getting some fresh blood into Williams alongside Albon wouldn't be a bad thing lets be honest.
