    Meanwhile, Hamilton scores his 89th victory....

    Russell was both lucky and unlucky, unable to get out of the way of Giovinazzi's debris field.

    Shows the value of Halo (remember Henry Surtees). I mean the wheel stayed tethered but what can you do if the suspension separates with it?

    Another day at the office for Merc, well done Daniel on Fastest Lap!

    Grumpy was doing the shopping run again, Pepe did well grinding out 4th.

    Sounds like backspin fancies his chances.

    Heartily sick of so called celebs sharing their views on current affairs. Stick to acting, singing, sport or whatever you might be good at. Please don’t lecture me on political issues of the day.

    Sir Frank and Claire Williams to leave roles at Williams F1 team

    Famous F1 family to depart the team after this weekend's Italian GP after 43 years at the helm and total of 16 world championships
    To be honest the daughter doesn't have the strength of personality to run an F1 team. Her old man always had a vice like grip on the team and made sure all the money went on the car. He once asked for a chopper from track to airport at 5pm on raceday, and I found him one for five grand and he said "That's too bloody expensive". His driver's fucking watch was worth 20 times that.

    End of an era.

    Funny how they never tried all these tricks when Ferrari were dominating. But they did when it was all Williams.

    Mercedes has already prepared for life with a less powerful power unit at Monza by running a reported six to seven tenths a lap down at the Belgian Grand Prix.
    The Italian Grand Prix marks the end of ‘party mode’ as a new Technical Directive [TD/037-20] comes into effect at the ‘Temple of Speed’.
    The directive limits the usage of engine modes, requiring teams to run the same ICE mode in qualifying and the race.
    That means the full might of the Mercedes engine will not be able to be unleashed, but it appears the dominant Silver Arrows, who cruised to another race win in Belgium, used Spa as somewhat of a dummy run for Monza.
    “Only when Verstappen caught up to one and a half seconds on Valtteri on the 25th lap did we tell our guys [Hamilton and Bottas] that they could forget about tyre management for a few laps and get a little bit of a head start,” Mercedes chief race engineer Andrew Shovlin is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.
    “If you take more today, you will harm yourself tomorrow.
    “We already had the races from Monza in mind and wanted to bring the engines as fresh as possible into the new era. Every hot lap would have cost us more later.”
    The report states that the Mercedes duo were six to seven tenths a lap slower than they could have been during the race and suggests the 0.526s gap between Hamilton and Max Verstappen for pole position could have been larger.

    Last year was all about how hard they were on tyres. Now it’s all about engine modes to preserve power for particular races?
    Does this mean running engines in hot mode at Monza will cause more engine failures?
    Do other teams have preservation modes for their engines?
    Tyres are no longer up to it for coping with engine power?

    Are they just trying to make Mercedes obvious advantage, less boring?

    Sorry, more questions than answers. I just want to enjoy competitive racing, and Mercedes wins of course.

    I think they have enough problems already, without drivers using their sporting success as a political platform.
    Thats not what they are paid for and certainly not what I want to watch.

    Not quite sure what your questions were about.

    My post was about a new limitation being brought in which will probably penalise Mercedes the most. It limits the use of engine modes to eke out more power during qualifying. It has nothing to do with "preserving power" whatever that means.

    The last time they did this was to abolish skirts, when Williams were dominating. And when that didn't work, normally aspirated engines.

    Yet funnily enough they never lifted a finger when Ferrari were winning everything.

    Of course I'm sure having Ferrari's former boss in charge of the FIA has nothing to do with it.

    That's the problem with F1. In the 000's , Ferrari ran away with jt. Now Merc is running away with it

    The new platform in 2022 should tighten the field back up

    The reference to Mercedes saving the use of power modes for Monza was confusing. My fault for not following the link.
    Jean Todt will always favour the red cars. His “success” at Ferrari paved the way for his present position of influence. A position he should have recused himself from due to the obvious conflict of interests.

    Mercedes on usual form although FP3 timings don't show it: Ricciardo's car went tits up in a section of the track where it was dangerous and hard to get at, so the session ended early.

    Just as the Renault boss was shown on TV beaming in the garage, too.

    Quali in 30 minutes.

    Hamilton beats Bottas to pole again, but very close.

    Ferrari? Who are they? Worst showing on home soil since 1984 according to the Beeb.
