Scott Mansell & Craig Scarborough give us the lowdown on why Lewis' Merc engine was so much faster than the rest in Brazil 21. Oh they definetly agree it was faster than other engines in the race, but no rules where broken - How is this possible?

We all supposed 'Party Modes' had been outlawed, however only the ability to turn up your engine from it's normal max for a selected time is what FIA actually banned.
So if you code your PU to operate at full beans under max acceleration for it's normal running cycle this is not using 'Party Mode' - it's just a Spicy engine.  :swoon:
Merc also able to duck budgetary restraints as an engine manufacturer with extra short life engines.  :crazy:

Begs the question of how many OEM teams might be prepared to take advantage of this short life cycle for engines this season?

Hey maybe the days of single use Quali engines is not over after all.  :DD

This term 'J' (Jounce) dampers get the heave-ho from F1.
Now hands up how many of us really knew these mass damper style things still existed?  ;)

However there still seems to be uncertainty this regulation amendment will put an end to Merc's trick rake/floor stalling device. The jury still seems to be out on whether or not its a mass/inertia damper?
Also since there is little info on this devilish device, is it transferable to the new gen venturi tunnel cars this year anyway?  :DntKnw:

It time for the teams to roll out their 2022 F1 cars. This year will be especially interesting because the new rules package will bring drastically new designs.

First out of the box is Aston Martin. They will roll out the new AMR22 on 10 February.

With the closed season being well closed the main talking point is will LH be on his bike?
I think we'll see him back but no announcement till after the FIA come up with an excuse for the Abu Dhabi fiasco.
What do you think?
Vote now.

Next era of F1 is starting and the cars are changing. This up to date vid talks us thru, with proper explanation, what will be important differences to 2012 cars and what remains the same. They even explain that suspension will not be massively changed by new size wheels.

Aside from the modifications to Eau Rouge and Raidillon, Spa is making a number of other changes to the circuit to get approval from the FIM for the return of the 24 Hour motorcycle race. This includes the return of gravel traps in several corners as well as the enlargement of a number of runoff areas. While gravel traps will be welcomed by many F1 fans, I worry that Spa will be a significantly changed circuit, losing some of what makes it iconic. Past changes to the track have disappointed me.
