Whoever at Ferrari made the decision to cheat/push the limit on the engine should be sacked. All of their problems stem from their reliance on the power that is no longer available to them. I get the sense that the Mercedes would still be a good car with Renault or Honda levels of power. Ferrari, on the other hand, are shown up by their customers, one of which isn't even a real team.

I look forward to Ferrari finding a new way to cheat...
ANDIAMO!!!

https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.vettel-purchases-mansells-iconic-championship-winning-williams.Ds1acKQ2f6BtqhrGp34EZ.html

Sebastian Vettel loves his Formula 1 history, so perhaps it should be of no surprise that the German has chosen to spend some of his salary on a Williams FW14B, the machine that Nigel Mansell used to win the 1992 F1 world title…
Mansell enjoyed supreme success in that car, winning nine out of 16 Grands Prix during that campaign to win the drivers’ title, while Williams triumphed in the constructors’ championship, too.
Regarded as one of the most sophisticated F1 cars in history, it was penned by design guru Adrian Newey, who also designed Vettel's four title-winning cars. It featured active suspension, a semi-automatic gearbox, traction control and a class-leading Renault engine, and proved to be the dominant machine during the 1992 campaign, giving Mansell his only world title triumph.
Vettel now owns a FW14B, the price he paid unknown, with the famous red 5 on its nose. This is a number Vettel is known to have an affinity with, and was the one he chose to race with when drivers could choose their own digits.

It is understood his private collection of cars includes at least one of his four title-winning Red Bulls. He is also believed to have bought a Ferrari F40 previously owned by opera singer Luciano Pavarotti, alongside a collection of motorbikes.

Christian Horner is such an annoying prick. The engine mode ban doesn't seem to have worked out for them, so I guess that's why he's saying that Merc is favoring Lewis over Valtteri.

Given how well Sainz went in quali, I have to assume that a safe is going to fall from the sky and land in front of his car just as the lights go out.

Mercedes basically just said fuck your quali mode ban and fuck your tows. Q3 was great with 5 min left Mercedes came out and caught everyone by surprise so they all rushed out hoping to get a tow. Even without a tow, Bottas was like .5 seconds faster.

I was hoping that Renault had actually made a breakthrough so that Danny Ric could get his podium, but I guess we'll have to wait for Mugello and Bahrain II.

Horner has always been a sh*t stirrer.

F1 is so boring. It’s just a procession.

Incredible result for Gasly and Sainz. Stroll fumbled away the win, but no great surprise there.

Bottas, tho... Jeez. Merc once again showed their tendency to make tactical mistakes when pushed by time constraints.

Mercedes was asleep at the wheel on the first SC. Ferrari once again embarrasses themselves as expected. They need to hire the Alpha Tauri team principal.

Stroll shitting away the win as expected. No surprise there.

That restart from Stroll was so bad... so bad.

Kind of glad Stroll didn't win though.
I'm glad I wasn't the only one actively rooting against Stroll to win. He's currently 4th in the drivers standings. WTF!!??
