Going with softer tyres but mandating higher pressures.

Interesting, the Renault protest about tracing points brake ducts being carbon copies (sorry) of the Mercedes listed parts they purchased last year was upheld. They got a very small fine and deducted (sorry, again) 15 points.

Interesting to see Williams, a Mercedes customer team, and McLaren, a future customer, jump on the bandwagon protesting Tracing Points duct deduction point penalty. The next meeting is going to be tense.

Stroll will be so angry at daddy for letting Hulk drive the other car. Is his father trying to ruin his life? It's unfair!

Yeah.. Good for peoples jobs at least, so that is good news.

I have to wonder how long it will be before they sell the name space on the car and "rebrand" for some big bucks. That would be shame really.

Any idea if they have to retain the name in order to keep their history bonus?

Not much out there about this. Seems James Matthews who is an ex racing driver and hedge fund manager married to Pippa Middleton has a part in it. The Williams family will no longer have a shareholding and is seems got £112 million out of the deal.

Who will be running the team day-to-day? It's a great brand and one of the most storied teams in F1, in George Russell they seem to have a future star. Given the budget caps coming into place they may turn a few quid if they can move up the pack.

Interesting that the engine modes will be curtailed. It may actually benefit Mercedes who seem to have a very reliable engine so likely have more overhead to play with than other teams.

I was wondering about that. Will they really leave Claire on the Pit Wall? I like her to be honest, but clearly they need someone else calling the shots there.

Ferrari International Assistance fumbling the ball again.

Merc will just run a higher mode all weekend now, whilst others will have to turn theirs down. Ugh.
