    New engine for Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez in Baku. Same spec, their first change of the season.

    Pérez already switched the turbo and MGU-H earlier. Verstappen still nothing, except replacement exhaust at the end of April.

    Budget cap ?
    Wonder if some teams would prefer to have a financial penalty and put some more upgrades on their car to have the edge?

    "Winning the title is not our aim".

    What the **** are you here for then? What kind of attitude is that?

    If he thinks this is motivational to the team, he's wrong.
    If he thinks this is motivational to the sponsors, he's dead wrong.
    If he thinks this would fool Red Bull to work less hard, I've got a bridge to sell him.
    If he thinks this would give the Tifosi peace of mind, he should revoke his Italian citizenship.

    So, pay a fine to be allowed to spend more ?

    That would make a mockery of the principle of the budget cap !! and encourage the rich teams to ignore it.

    The only penalty that would be meaningful is a deduction of points.

    I can't even understand why it's not already applied for going over the engine allocation.

    This is the new mirror stay extension on the MercedesAMGF1. The extension is a new part of the assembly that has run on the car since Bahrein winter test. The extension is there to optimise the flow on the rear bodywork.

    The sidepod inlet on the Alpine has been extended forwards compared to previous design, in a similar way to Aston Martin and AlphaTauri. The new design aims to optimise drag reduction and slightly improve the front wheel wake control.

    Absolutely agree.
    This will decide the championship outcome.

    For me this is a smart move by Binotto,
    Pressure in Italy is already immense this year on Ferrari believe me!
    He knows the team should work with calm to deliver.
    Off course he wants to win both titles this year.
    No doubt about this.

    It's Binotto playing mind games ...

    But is that necessary ?

    pressure is always insane by Italian media. The statement is stupid IMO. So if they lose the title this year, binotto can say "mission accomplished"?

    He has been pretty good to protect the team the last two years, isn’t it ?
    With insights it was a very difficult task.
    I give him credits for what he has accomplished since 2019.
