With LH requiring a new rim the tyre changes would have covered that so nothing would have changed.
I have always found it a bit odd that repairs could be made under a red flag what happened to Park Ferme?

If it was just the rim Andy why has Wolff stated that the car would have been retired until the red flag meant they could repair it? :confused:

They could've just pitted Hammy under safety car and put new wheels on, if that's all it took.

I was just going by what Mercedes said, I wouldn't know but do they tell us everything?

I'm pretty sure, Andy, Australia is also investigating using solar farms in uninhabited areas to power hydrogen production factories.

It seems it's coming!

F1 Drivers / Re: Lando now holds a very special F1 record at McLaren

There is the famous tussle for the 1958 championship Jeri, Stirling Moss was fighting with Mike Hawthorn for the title that year. Interestingly Peter Collins another Brit was a distant 3rd in the championship.

Moss could have won it if he hadn't sportingly intervened, after winning, at the Portuguese GP to stop Hawthorn being given a penalty. The 2nd place Hawthorn kept meant at season end he beat Stirling to the title by 1 point. - Now that's what adds to the legend for Stirling as being the best F1 driver never to win a WDC, amongst other exploits of course.

Has f1 ever had a Brit vs Brit title fight?
(Or two drivers from the same country?)

2010 had Hamilton and Button both in the running, but it wasn't a direct fight with a lot of drivers in the mix until they very end of the season.

I think that cars should be able to repaired, in a 'like for like' format, without penalty.

Otherwise there is a risk of a damaged car restarting with a very real risk of spreading debris, causing another crash due to catastrophic failure, or generally being a hazard due to lower speed than following cars.

Ideally such cars would be black flagged, but the stewards won't always be able to tell which cars are at risk by a visual inspection of a static car.

It also means that teams will take that risk.  Maybe the damaged car can hold onto a points paying position, where's the advantage of dropping to the back?

I just don't see how discouraging repairs during a red flag makes the sport safer.

It would definitely be fun to see them go up against each other in top flight cars. I hope it works out that way.

Because he's Toto Wolff.  ;)
