Watched the first 18 laps now - which was good - and then turned off.

So it turns out that the cars can pass without DRS. And yet the damn system will stay with the new regs in 2021.

The stewards decided against issuing a sporting sanction to the team despite finding that Leclerc’s car contained almost 5kg more fuel than Ferrari declared. The team has been fined $50,000 for the infringement.
Stewards’ verdict on Ferrari

The stewards heard from the team representative, FIA technical delegate and the FIA head of single seater technical matters.

[Technical directive]/014-19 required teams to declare the amount of fuel that they intended to put in the car for the laps to the grid, the formation lap, the race, the in-lap and any fire-ups that would be needed. The Technical Delegate was able to confirm the fuel mass put in the tank by checking in accordance with the procedure specified in TD/014-19.

There was a difference of 4.88kgs between the team’s declaration for car 16 and the technical delegate’s measured fuel mass.

The team’s declaration was therefore inaccurate and constituted a breach of the technical directive. This in turn constitutes an infringement of Article 12.1.1.i of the International Sporting Code.

Accordingly, the stewards determined that the team should be fined €50,000 for its inaccurate declaration.

Considering the amounts of time that cockwomble was lapped in 2013, I'm going to state fake news.

Edit: That comment section. Oh lord. He actually has fans.

Shenanigans! He was at least -2 laps for every race he competed in. Therefore he did not finish every lap of every race.

There were some interesting end of term radio stuff.... loved the bit with Lando and his race engineer on the slow down lap. And the Carlos bit.

That and some of the other funny bits in this: (ignoring the Lewis 'that was for the fans' crap)

(Oh you will have to follow the link in the clip to watch on youtube)



Must admit, having followed Lando with interest from his early feeder days doing Formula Toyota in New Zealand, I sort of went off him a bit, but this year I have reignited my fandom of him. He is (along with the other rookies) a breath of fresh air to the category. Sainz has also been impressive.

Is the season finally over? I caught up at last. Not a great way to finish but at least Ferrari and Max got the better of Mercedes a fair bit of the time this year. It's more disappointing that they couldn't be as consistent or make as few a mistakes as the Silver Arrows.
