If LEC bumped VER, he would have been given a minimum 5-10 second penalty.

"Let them race." what a crock of bias ****.

Yep. They had to inject something. Especially with Max being in front of all the Dutch folk

It really is funny how 15 years ago Ferrari was benefitting from all of the rules/penalties (sans for the 2005 tire switch) and now they just can't seem to catch a break. FIArrari was real...but perhaps the guys in charge were just better connected than the heads of the other teams. After all, Ross Brawn is the technical head of F1 now and Jean Todt is FIA president...

I never really got into f1 until the VET redbull days, but I do recall Ferrari dominating f1 back then. Nowadays it almost seems like Ferrari is in a partial rebuilding stage with the addition of LEC and a new team principal.

I just find it frustrating how the last two race winners have been decided by the FIA. I understand there are rules in place to keep drivers safe, but it only seems to apply to certain drivers. LEC had such a good pace the entire race too. The only good thing about that race is how well the Honda PU performed.

Max was running the engine in qualy mode for the last 10+ laps since they have plans to take extra engines and penalties later in the season. Nice way to steal your home race.

Marko was talking about how they feel Honda could ask more from their engine & take additional risk seeing as how reliable their power unit has been thus far too

Are those in the Camaro/Vette?
I think the Camaro SS has the 8-speed and ZL1 has the 10?

Yeah, we have a ZL1 with the 10 and then for the 8L90, the boss is in the process of building some street rod to stick it in. I can't even tell what it TBH.
