    The FIA is going to ban engine qualifying modes from 2021 https://www.racefans.net/2020/08/12/fia-plans-ban-on-qualifying-mode-engine-settings-in-2021/

    True but if Mercedes were being petty Renault are the only engine supplier those teams could use, although a McLaren Ferrari would be fun interesting.

    Mercedes must have sent them a picture of a Renault engine.
  4. I thought both teams looked tired and another game in quick succession in this heat means it's going to played at walking pace.
  5. Wolves are a definite threat to to the top 4 next season without the distraction of European football and Nuno's preferring not to do much squad rotation. The United Sevilla game is going to be unwatchably bad.

    Barcelona is always utter tedium. Unless Pirelli up the tyre pressures again this week the only way the race will be vaguely interesting is if Bottas outqualifies Hamilton or Albon actually shows up gets vaguely near Max on the grid.

    They thought he could drive through the graining and the tyres would come back to him. Mercedes changed the balance of the car to lessen the load on the front left that failed last week and all the new setup ended up doing was cooking the rear tyres. As for going to the end they were praying for a safety car and as soon as Max increased his pace to make that unviable they pitted Hamilton.

    Bottas also tried the same tactic last weekend and Hamilton made the point that Bottas was pushing him all the way it’s just that this year the chasing car had tyre issues before the lead car. Hamilton gets his achievements takes down because he’s in the best car but you only have to look at Alonso’s career to see what happens when a driver is bad for team morale no one will touch them no matter how good they are. Ferrari have broken Vettel, next year whether he has a drive or not cannot come quick enough for him.

    He'll definitely win at least one and I personally think he's been made to look a lot more impressive by being paired with hopeless teammates who cannot get anywhere near him since Danny Ric saw which way the wind was blowing and moved to Renault. The real fun is going to start when he's actually fighting for a title, he's been in the sport for nearly 6 years and never really had anything to lose. Even his braindead clash with Ocon in Brazil only cost him a win, he's never fought with a championship at stake and when he does have something to risk I expect he'll go full entitled asshole. If he does move to Mercedes I cannot see him and Jos doing much for team morale there either especially if they at least maintain the pretense of not having a number one driver. I did laugh at his comment about his engineer having a drink after he made the same comment last week because it was the most unsubtle way of showing how likeable he is. It does make me laugh that people think this performance means he's now the fastest driver on the grid or that Hamilton is lucky because he has the fastest car when Alonso is a cautionary tale of how you can be fast but if you're a pain in the ass to work with no one is going to touch you. Hamilton not rushing to pass Leclerc because he was playing percentages isn't a sign that he's lost his fight, just that with a 30 point lead why take any risks.

    I hope they topped up the fuel in the safety car this morning, it feels like it's been out every 5 laps today.

    Vettel wouldn't be the first driver they've paid to sit out the season.

    Max love in on Sky incoming. Bottas race pace was rubbish, left for dead by Max on the same pit strategy. Hamilton has got second on merit.

    All Hamilton needs to do this season is beat Bottas. Mission accomplished.

    Mercedes are going to let Hamilton score no points this week.

    Max could win this. Bottas tyre management isn’t great and Hamilton is going to stuck behind him for the whole race.

    Mercedes are clearly driving to a set delta for tyre life.
  17. I haven't had it in Sword/Shield but the old games displayed PKRS in purple text on the Summary screen when a Pokemon has it. Once the Pokemon recovers from Pokerus there will be a permanent purple star on the summary page to show they've had it and they cannot get it again.

    I think Bottas will win tomorrow. Pole has won the last seven races and Hamilton doesn’t need to do anything stupid although if they are level like last week I don’t think Hamilton will lift like in the first corner like Bottas did.

    What a lap from Bottas.

    Hulk is embarrassing Stroll, half a second faster in the first run.
  22. Whoever takes over will be hamstrung by Ronaldo being a passenger when the team is defending and will also put every free kick in a threatening position into the stands.
  23. Real Madrid playing like they want to be knocked out. Another gift from Varane.
