Re: Albon. It feels a bit like groundhog day. He struggles in qualifying then makes strong progress up the field in the race. If only he can get a few places up he'll have much stronger results. He still won't be the "Bottas Blocker" that Max needs but will definitely help with the points.
It could have been debris or a sharp kerb, but it probably also needed the additional factor of a very worn tire. The LF tire takes a lot of abuse at Silverstone, so it would be vulnerable late in the stint.
A Red Bull engineer said that they need to give him a more predictable car. It may be that the cars behavior at the limit (as in quali) exacerbates a limitation for him or makes it hard for him to work the car in a way that he typically uses to extract lap time. Or he could just not be quite up to it.Re: Albon. It feels a bit like groundhog day. He struggles in qualifying then makes strong progress up the field in the race.

Probably to match him up with Hamilton. Basically as long as Lewis is there, Bottas will be there.Agree. The team lets their drivers race and it's clear Hamilton is simply better than him. No bs insulting number 2 shenanigans. I don't get why they put him on year to year contracts though unless they really believe a little uncertainty motivates him.
That's the crazy part, they only got the penalty since they didn't use the rear brake ducts in 2019, but based the 2020 version on the 2019 Merc drawings. In the front, they used the Mercedes one in 2019 and updated that for 2020, making them legal. The other aspect that doesn't make sense is that the protest focused on the brake ducts and what constitutes a team "designing" their own parts but now the FIA is saying that they will "prevent teams from using extensive photos to copy whole portions of other cars in the way that Racing Point has done." Quoting Nikolas Tombazis there. They seem like two entirely different actions and they are being conflated.The Racing Point ruling is such a wishy-washy attempt to have it both ways. If RP learned of the design of the rear brake ducts in a legal way, it's ludicrous to penalize them for acting on that knowledge. But if that's what you're going to decide, then you can't let them continue with the brake ducts this weekend. Of course, the FIA are letting RP continue to use the ducts because they know that any revised part would build on the knowledge they have because RP can't forget what they know.
