Yeah, I'd say Ric's seat is the most at risk. Honda wants Yuki in a car and Ric was arguably running worse than Yuki in the few races he participated in. The argument was that he needed time to adjust, but Lawson has been showing them both up with less time to adjust.

Ric would do better in the RB, but I really don't foresee Horner putting him as Max's partner, the two did not get along - main reason Ric left RB in the first place was Max.

I enjoyed the banter when Ric was in the mix, but I prefer to see Lawson in his seat for the sake of racing... Ric to Williams... lol. I'd say Ric should just become a commentator but he did terribly that one race with Will Arnett - I could only handle like 3 minutes of it before I had to change back to the F1tv broadcast.

Hopefully , but I don't think so by the new FIA TD018 regulations .
I'm pretty sure Wolff screwed MAX and the Red Bull Team (won't be the first time)!

But I have a wish : I want to see the 2 Ferraris on the podium !
Whatever happens , MAX will be fine . He's already the 2023 World Champion .
Love to see him fight in a bad car as well , and just like with Charlie I really like to hear their rage ..
If Charlie can beat the Merc's , then my weekend can't go wrong !

The Internet and rumours ! Ohhh Boy

Ferrari engineers said that Red Bull will run into trouble at Suzuka just like in Singapore.
Horner denies it , but they said It's by the new FIA regulations (TD018)!
Further they said , the magic aero clockwork from the RB19 is completely disturbed.

I say : We'll see it soon enough at Suzuka ...
Mafia talk from them, they know nothing about RB

I don't get where the TD affecting the RB came from lol

Even Newey denied it was that.

Ferrari engineers, you mean the same one that had the car blow up for half the season last year? Or made the Ferrari drive like crap for the first half of 2023

Charles engine almost blew up during Singapore, I wouldn't trust Ferrari engineers!

RB will be fine, it's just track specific, singapore was all slow corners which the RB is slow in, but Japan is all Med-high speed corners which the RB will demolish the competition

Well , I heard RB had to remove the middle part of the floor (the wooden middle part)
The new FIA regulation (TD018)! means that the wings are too flexible ..
But they also looked at and under the floor , and inside rumours said the RB19 floor was too flexible and that RB had to ran at Singapore with a stiffer floor.
Then the issue was to make the aero package work like it worked before and that didn't worked like before . That's why they got in trouble to find the right balance setup package at Singapore .
Sim runs didn't made it work on Vriday night .
In the last hours RB dropped the suspension to make it work , but that failed too .
The issue of the lower setup was that they couldn't run fast enough over the curbs in QF because the car was bottoming out over the curbs ,very shortly followed by brake and balance issues .
In the last 20 laps of the race it was going better , because the car was lighter and was bottoming lesser.
That's why the RB19 was 1.5 sec. slower in QF ,it was since 2016 that both RB cars didn't qualified for QF3 !


And that's why the RB19 was extremely slow in the turns , MAX couldn't fight the turns like he's used to do ...
Singapore wasn't track specific ! The Monaco street track with ultra slow turns ? Who won there ?

Newey needs a miracle to make the balance package work again in just one week .
In the land of the rising sun. HONDA's home race !

I think you've been reading too much conspiracy theories

Nothing was changed on the RB, it's the same car.

You'll see next weekend when they resume norm service.

So much rumors lol

When Horner and even Newey says nothing was changed, I don't know why you would trust anyone else

Can be , or can't be conspiracy theories .
Do you really think that Horner and Newey would say we won the last 14 races and 10 races in a row because our car ran in a gray area ?
No . They never would say it and actually they can't say it because at that moment the RB19 was running according to all the FIA regulations and according spec.
But the FIA regulations are suddenly changed now...

The Mercedes Party-Mode , Mercedes Rocket PU , wheel cooling system ,cheating air intake sensors and DAS are gone too because the FIA regulations changed .
Wolff never said : Now we run with DAS or we had to remove DAS , because the FIA screwed us .
Same situation is going on in the Red Bull Team . It was just a matter of time .
But as I said , we'll see it soon enough this weekend in Japan .

Hopefully I'm wrong and the rumors too

Interesting fact I saw:
On lap 48, Verstappen was 41.4 seconds behind the leaders. 15 laps later he cut that down to 21.4 seconds.

Wonder what would have happened if RB didn't blow it in qualifying. Or if there was no safety car.
