While I don't really care which guy won, looking again at the visuals as presented on the web, Vettel just wasn't THAT close to the right side wall by time the car was running straight and he was done correcting the steering, before the car started to move to the right again. Some think he was fairly out of control all the way, drifting toward the wall, but I can't quite see that in the recordings. Only that he did barge one way or the other out onto the track toward the racing line with Hamilton already there.

Whatever. That race is done, the results may get overturned, or not, will be argued forever. Either guy deserved to win, the Stewards, with more data than we can see, decided. Only Vettel knows just what he did. We will never know if Hamilton could have finally passed him and eventually stay ahead to the finish

Life goes on.

I can't judge either way. I'm just dejected we threw away a win. Only hope is the remaining upgrades do something. 2/3 of the season remaining. Didn't Alonso say at this stage and trailing in the points by a big margin, "I will win the championship."? And he came within a point or two after slowly clawing his way out of his hole.

Yeah, I know. Fat chance.

Lol, put fenders and bumpers on the cars, and let them bang away as in NASCAR. And if they hit a wall, so be it, as in NASCAR.

Wednesday Tech Tips!

Mercedes suspension and steering design pushes the nose down in low speed corners, giving them an edge. Some unclothed detail shots of the front hubs and suspension arms in this video.

"What’s going on here is that Mercedes is mounting the steering in its cars differently than expected, using the force of turning the wheel to act like an anti-roll bar, or to force the nose of the car down. It’s something it can pull off with power steering, some very elaborate manufacturing, and some even more creative thought."
