I agree. That's why I'd like to see the Miami race moved to Sebring.  :good:

I'd like a return to our first circuit also, but, 'ain't gonna' happen.  :stop:
Like I said, it's not a mandated billiard table.
If we upgraded it to meet the regs, I'd rather see 'em at one of the RA's.....America or Atlanta.....  ;)

Softer springs might be part of the problem. This year's springs are already softer to make up for the loss of the tall sidewall tires. Those taller sidewall provided a major part of the suspension travel in the previous cars. Maybe (just maybe) it might be at least partially a matter of getting the balance of downforce vs. spring rate correct.

In FP2 it still looks like Lewis' teeth were rattling.  I think Merc has the biggest problem with the bouncing.  I doubt they will fix it for this weekend, but they must have something in the works.  The other problem is that it might not be something they can see accurately in the sims or even the wind tunnel, so it could be a difficult fix.  I expect that Merc has one of the most complex floor, and it could have something to do with that.

They were making comments during FP2 that Lewis and a few other drivers looked like heavy metal head bangers.
