The F1 Academy motion at Monza final weekend was stuffed with collisions and penalties, and none stranger than the 0.3 seconds that was added to Amna Al Qubaisi’s race time following the end of race three.

It price her third place to Nerea Marti, however Al Qubaisi had really taken third from Marti through the race by way of an off-track second, and a subsequent Security Automobile interval that ran all the way in which to the chequered flag denied Al Qubaisi the prospect to provide again the place.

Watching the Sky and C4 F1 gridwalks… Everybody’s speaking concerning the Brundle-Delevingne snub, and nobody appears to have seen that the “random gentleman” that went unrecognised by @therealdcf1 was, in truth, 3-time GP winner and former DC rival @frentzen_hh #BritishGP #F1

Remark of the day

Mercedes staff principal Toto Wolff has admitted that as they begin work on their automotive for 2024 they’re wanting as soon as once more at Purple Bull’s sidepod design.

By many groups following Purple Bull’s strategy it has turn into a design development, whereas Mercedes went for a ‘zero sidepod’ look with their design that in the end led to an uncompetitive automotive in comparison with the Purple Bull. Regardless of dropping that idea for 2023, they’ve remained off Purple Bull’s tempo and are evaluating methods they’ll return to the entrance of Formulation 1.

In case you have a look at the entrance and rear of the automotive you may simply see the problems its having with extreme drag. It actually does appear to be their exhaust configuration (the product of their zero-sidepod idea?) could be very dangerous for the rear wing. Ferrari and Purple Bull’s conventional tackle the sidepod/exhaust format looks like a no brainer. Extra drag alongside the highest of the chassis, is spoiling the movement of air beneath and over the rear wing, the rear wing is just not performing because it ought to, due to this, and thus, they require a bigger rear wing to compensate. This actually seems apparent, may be flawed.
