Yep, and given that's disturbingly 22 actual years old and really the first season for what we now know as Mercedes* it's worth telling people they actually launched those 2 liveries as separate cars before being told they couldn't do it.

 

Spoiler

* The entry Mercedes runs under goes back further to the late 60s and the Tyrrell team but in reality what was then BAR only bought the entry not any of the team's cars/equipment etc which mostly went to Paul Stoddart future owner of Minardi.

 

Bonus fact : This means the "Minardi 2 seater" that still runs at some Grands Prix is actually a Tyrrell base not a Minardi one.

It's taking the piss. The FIA need to step in as the teams clearly can't self police this.

 

Oddly Ferrari (I know lol!) are the one team to have really nailed of late:

Remember they weird fag adverts the we didn't know of that appeared on the cars back when they went to America and wondering why they changed colours of the cars halfway through the season?

I can barely see it and it's stationary. 

 

That being said, I invariably just see a number 6 on both Mercedes cars. The stupid Petronas symbol (that is in no way a P).

I always see a weird fat hieroglyphic bird.

Is this what's left of the Mercedes team after Red BulL Powertrain Divisions latest hiring drive?

Engine divisions are covered by the budget cap. 

 

 

"We buy our engines from independent company Red Bull Technologies"

"Can we see those accounts?"

"No".

 

Red Bull is a private company, the FIA can see the accounts of the 2 F1 teams but they have no right to see any the full details from the rest of the business.  Especially with 2 team there's a LOT of places Red Bull can overspend.

Is it really worth getting a team sugar daddy if the driver that comes with it keeps crashing and presumably costing a lot of money? I don’t know how much Haas are getting for this trouble.

Perez on pole at Monaco would be so tasty!!


As long as Max isn’t in second place otherwise he’s going to get an unusually long pit stop when he changes tyres.

In order to celebrate emojis on the forum 😉

 

Gentlemen 🎩👱‍♂️👨👨‍🦰👨‍🦳👨‍🦲, a short 📏 view ☀️😎 back to the past. Thirty 3️⃣0️⃣ years ago, Niki Lauda 🇦🇹3️⃣🏆 told 💬 us "take a trained monkey 🍌🐵, place him into the cockpit 🐓💺 and he is able to drive the car 🏎️." Thirty 3️⃣0️⃣ years later, Sebastian 🇩🇪4️⃣🏆 told 💬 us "I had to start 🔑 my car 🏎️ like a computer 💻🎮⌨️, it’s very complicated 😖." And Nico Rosberg 🇩🇪🇫🇮1️⃣🏆 said 💬 that during the race 🏁 – I don’t remember 🤔 what race - he pressed the wrong ❌ button on the wheel 🎡. Question ❓❓ for you both 👬: is Formula One 1️⃣🏆🍾 driving today too complicated 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️ with twenty 2️⃣0️⃣ and more ➕ buttons on the wheel 🎡, are you too much under effort 😓, under pressure 🗜️? What are your wishes 🧞‍♂️🧞‍♀️ for the future concerning the technical programme during the race 🏁? Less ➖ buttons 🔘🔘🔘, more ➕⁉️ Or less  👎 and more 👍 communication 💬 with your engineers 🧰🛠️?
