Nothing would make me happier than McLaren battling for wins. Hope that Merc engine gives them some extra zip

Also, I think we can expect the trailer for Drive to Survive season 3 soon, usually comes mid February and episodes release end of February. I sure can't wait because that was an interesting year for F1

I'm looking forward to 2022. The current formula is tired and stale. I really hope the raise the rev limit more than 3,000 RPM. Get these things back sounding like race cars.

Drive to Survive March 19



Grosjean's crash, Perez's win, Norris' podium, tons of Haas drama, Russell's Mercedes drive

Going to be one hell of a season

Mika Salo accidentally reveals part of Ferrari's 2020 punishment

https://www.reddit.com/r/formula1/co...t_of_ferraris/

Rough translation from a reddit user

Quote:
"They suffered from Ferrari's cheat last year because they had Ferrari motors and could use less gas, so I think Alfa would be pretty good this year when they get their full power."

"So Ferrari's getting out a new engine, right?"

"I dunno if it's a new engine but they're allowed to use it to its full power. Having to use less gas was their punishment for their cheating last year"
Pretty interesting

@btimbit...I dont even know how that would work?? I would assume Haas be under the same penalty then? And I thought the rules was a fixed/max flow rate which was how Ferrari were cheating (expandable piping)??

Time to start digging into this... :-)

Yeah I'm really curious, I wish more info would come out. If it affected Alfa then yeah it must have affected Haas too.

I was gonna try and read into it more later on tonight as well

Interesting implications too, like does this mean maybe Williams didn't really take much of a step forward after all, that they were just competing with handicapped teams?

The silver arrow has been reduced to "maybe a little silver on the back of the shark fin". I'm not sure we need another black car on the grid, will have to see what everyone else does.

Alpines car unveiling video was so bad . Essentially a slideshow. Beauty car though. Not all black. Nice hue of blue on the top.



Now tomorrow we get AM and Williams. I'm really hoping for a solid return of British Racing Green from AM.

Your video isn't working, but here's a pic:

I don't mind it, but nothing special there. Also hoping for British racing green. Williams or HAAS could even end up in BWT pink.

I’m a sucker for red and white, I like the Alfa livery...though it is very similar. Alpine looks nice too.

I too am jonesing for some throwback colours. I want a Williams “Rothmans” blue and white and a bright yellow Renault.

Alpine looks very nice.

As far as throwback goes, McLaren really missed the boat when they had Honda power. Granted the combo was Sam Bennett level garbage, but would have been the best looking car on the grid.
