Also I wouldn't label it the "newey" floor. Sure he's the technical lead, but one man doesn't get the job done. There's a bunch of super talented engineers that our the grunt work in to turn a sketch into reality. They have to turn the sketch into a CFD model, fix any errors with the design so it works better in real life and with the other bits on the car. Then the wind tunel guys have to test it and further refine it. So it's more team work than one person at the top.

It's also super demoralizing for the people who work on the car if you just give one person credit. It's a team game. So I'd call it the RBR floor, just like how no one calls it the Allison dampener or das etc.
The Newey floor (I like to call it that) and new chassis for Max appears to make a big difference, it shows what a brilliant brain can conceive then let the RBR team construct and shoehorn the creation into the car.

Did Newey make/think of it directly? I mean other parts of the engineering team could have been responsible. Doesn't matter it is working which is the good part.

Interesting. It seems to be working which is the important part. I wonder how the race pace is though, COTA seems to be super abrassive so it is hard on tires.

I guess we will see tomorrow - err actually today I just didn't go to sleep yet lol.

Post qualifying, Hammy said it will be a good race into Turn 1. Foreshadowing for a collision? Toto keeps referring to DNFs this week and the last time he repeated the DNF mantra was Silverstone.

I just put down flyer bet for a Bottas WDC.
Wolff says a lot of things as you well know and a lot of it has us reaching for a gag for him as he hardly tells the true story e.g. with updates and if he is referring to any dirty tricks on the track to sideline RBR which would well be in their way of thinking having expunged all other means then it will open up a more the darker side to a desperate team.
What makes sense to me is that Merc would want to open up a gap to Checo all being well at the start but it may not be the case with his improved pace and hopefully Bot will be held starting from 9th.

Of course . The Ferrari PU update seems to work .The update was + 40 ponies .
But ...

As we know , the Ferrari can be really fast ....Over one (1) lap .
Sadly ,as usual during the race it's a mess !

This !

From the startgrid top 4 :
The one who has the best tire management and the best pitstop strategy is in normal circumstances the winner of the race !

The COTA track will chew very quickly through the rubber !

HAM will be inside on front row correct? Pole position is outside heading into turn 1?

Hopefully it's a clean dash toward turn 1 and no one pushes out wide or closes the inside off. I want some good battles these next few races and no DNF's.

Even with BOT's (6th) new Mercedes PU ,I don't see him finish on the podium.

Let's keep in mind : BOT has the 2 McLaren's and the 2 Ferrari's in front of him .

Today Red Bull has (finally) a race strategy with Checo .
Today Mercedes hasn't a race strategy .

HAM ?
Watch out for his dirty (Silverstone) tricks !

*Deliberately going too wide is HAM's trademark !

If ham gets a better start hes going to push max as wide as he can… why wouldn't he. Any racer would. Nothing dirty about that IMO. Max would do the same if he started p2

Of course HAM is well know for his dirty tricks ! But .....
Currently HAM has more to lose ..Remember who's the leader in the WDC !

MAX has enough with 2 victories and 4 podiums in the last 6 races !

RIC is a very fortunate individual. Gets to drive Senna's McLaren and wins bet for Earnhardt's too...Plus he's given out I few tattoos...I'd never bet against him for sure.

We're at 18 which gives great line of sight to t1.

The disadvanage from the Mercedes new rear squat suspension !

After the FP sessions both Merc cars got significant floor damage by the COTA bumpy track !
The floor from both Merc's scraped too much over the track , so the floor had to be repaired and reinforced before the QF began ...

Going to be an interesting race with abrasion being high. Checo is well known to be good at tire management.
