Nah...none of this matters.

It's pure luck. The cars build themselves. Anyone can drive it. The FIA cheats for them. They started working on the PU just after they invented the automobile. All of their cars are 100kg lighter than the competition. They race on a shorter track than the competition and qualify with a Warp Drive motor.

Of course they always win.

Good post. This is how every company should operate, but too many egotistical maniacs in managing positions.

Toto is definitely the goat of team principals that's for sure.

But with the new budget cap who knows if they can still give bonuses.

Dang the w12 is looking good! I personally like the star livery but the amg one is nice too. But holy cow mercedes is not camera shy at all, getting right into the barge port area that other teams don't want you to see, only thing they're keeping secret is the floor area.

Overall that car is dope!

The rumor is that it's pretty much a sham car and they won't release anything real until testing. Ominous!!

lol! To be fair iirc mercedes did that with the w10 where on testing day they showed up with a nearly different car with all the new parts.

But Same could be said about red bull and their RB16B.

Lol yep, same for every team. We won't know technical details till winter testing where we can start to spot the intricacies of each car. But even then we won't know much until teams start talking about it. For example DAS, people though it was to change toe angle for reduction of undwrsteer, until mercedes came out and said it was for tire temps. So there's more in store to keep us fans excited.

2020 DAS => Approved by the FIA
2021 DAS => Banned by the FIA

In 2020 => Mercedes had huge advantage by DAS .
In 2021 => Mercedes would be cheating with DAS .

Todt and the whole FIA really s@cks !

Yeah I am not a fan of the banning of parts in F1, I just want teams to keep moving forward not backwards.

Mate . I think you got me wrong .
I see it otherwise , Merc got the DAS advantage in 2020 approved by the FIA !
Now suddenly in 2021 DAS is banned by the FIA ...

So , DAS was in 2020 a gift from the FIA for Mercedes ?

This !

Well DAS was part of the steering system and nothing in the regulations prohibited it so it was legal. The. They banned it because they didn't want every other team to have to spend to develop it. Imo I would just rather allow teams to have free reign so long as it's in the regulations no more banning. I wanna see f1 cars corner at 6-7g lol.

It doesn't matter how many times you explain it to him he will still recycle the same BS sooner rather than later.

The DAS was pronounced legal before the start of the season...ANY team could easily have built and installed a similar system well in time for the 2020 season.
The reason they didn't was that the DAS innovation was developed to ameliorate a small problem only Mercedes were having with creating and keeping front tyre temperature.
As other teams didn't have the same problem there was no benefit for them to develop a similar system.

So thats MBelgium done with DAS for a week or so....Whats next to be recycled?
Mercedes is a Spaceship.
Mercedes Sabotaged Russell
The FIA are corruptly helping Mercedes or is it Ferrari.
Bottas is a grandma.
Mercedes tried to hire Binotto for his technical expertise on engine fuel flow.
Hamilton wanted a No Verstappen clause.
Etc etc
There surely is potential for some sort of drinks bingo game based on what gets recycled next?

Or the radio message that will never happen:

Looking forward to Ricciardo in the McLaren. Hopefully they can cause some sort of upset in the first few races before their lack of development tokens hurts them too much.
