The F1 Thread…
Good race. Shame for LH and I actually quite like Rosberg. Good to see Bottas fight back and prove Williams have some pace this year.
Moving on slightly – if you close you eyes and just listen to the voices you could be forgiven to think that Arnie has taken over as principal of Mercedes…Posted 3 years ago
Kobyashi lives up to his kamikaze reputaion again.
Kobayashi cleared – systems failure apparently…

One thing I don’t understand:
100kg max fuel limit in the cars
100kg/hr max fuel rate allowed
The races go on for a lot longer than one hour.
The fuel flow rate is the maximum rate that fuel can be put through the engine. To use 100kg in an hour they would have to be at full throttle all the time, which of course they aren’t.
The fuel can flow slower than the 100kg/hour rate, but at no time can it exceed it. Even if they have plenty of fuel left.Posted 3 years ago
Regarding Red Bull – this is a reply from another forum (not my words). Seems like they don’t have a leg to stand on…
Even if RBR appeals, I think point number 9 will destroy anything they can come up with:
9) The FIA technical representative observed thought the telemetry during the race that the fuel flow was too high and contacted the team, giving them the opportunity to follow his previous instruction, and reduce the fuel flow such that it was within the limit, as measured by the homologated sensor – and thus gave the team the opportunity to be within compliance. The team chose not to make this correction.
They ignored FIA more than once and even during the race itself. Even if RBR were within rule-limits, these offences undoubtly will keep the decision of disqualification in place.Posted 3 years ago
