    Looks so much better IMHO.

    Hamilton was also scheduled for tyre tests, did few laps, but had to stop as he was feeling unwell. He seemed to be feeling so much better this time last year, how unfortunate

    yes, apparently it was a build up of excess bile in his stomach!

    oh, the crushing stress and deep, unbearable depression, to say nothing of the shame, associated with only having won 3 F1 world championships, then missing out on one. life must be barely worth living. No wonder Nicole dumped him - she could plainly see what it was going to come to.

    i suppose this is just typical F1 messing around with the rules from one season to the next, to keep it fresh?
    yes, they do look like what an F1 car should have on each corner. obviously a mere 6G lateral around corners isnt enough!

    I think it's a move in the right direction. Hopefully it and aero changes alter the aero/mechanical grip balance in the favour of mechanical grip to assist in overtaking.
