    Are you sure he does not just run his fingers through his hair after a shower ??

    He might not even own a comb or brush......

    That’s good—means he’s been working hard keeping the team focused on achieving their performance targets :) I hope, ha-ha.

    So Mika Salo is talking about Ferrari's punishment in 2020 for cheating.

    He says: "I dunno if it's a new engine but they're allowed to use it to its full power. Having to use less gas (power?) was their punishment for their cheating last year."

    Interesting to see. But we do not know the substance of the 'secret' deal/settlement. It is speculative but it does make sense.

    That would be quite "irregular", even for FIA standards.

    Changes at Ferrari: "Mattia Binotto will miss several stages this year. Confirmed rumors about the team that will be presented on Friday. Laurent Mekies deputy team principal at the GPs. Inaki Rueda replaces him as Sports Director.

    Isn’t/wasn’t he the “strategy” guy? He really earned his promotion... not! Well, at least—we hope—he won’t be making strategy calls any more.

    Finally, for those who say Ferrari is “too Italian”, that’s three non-Italians in top management roles.

    Sounds a bit of “urban legend”. But if true—doubt it—that’s pretty good news if they can get back to higher power level in addition to any improvements.

    18” tires look good—less like wagon wheels than expected.

    Pity it will all be a moot point considering they'll all be covered by plastic-looking, convex bin lid covers next year :(

    Is that a requirement—WT-? Why?

    Yes, wheels rims are a now a spec part :( and the covers are required - part of the aero regs aimed at reducing the turbulence for following cars.

    So Red Bull has taken Mercedes' idea for the rear suspension/casing. Good news. Now hopefully Honda's new engine is powerful enough and reliable to mount a real challenge and we'll see a different WDC for once.
