Rethinking my original feelings on this, I think the situation would have been best handled if the Stewards had just agreed the incident wasn't serious enough for them to intervene and therefore...

All I can find is confirmation that Stroll's spec 2 engine did suffer an internal failure. The lack of pace by Hamilton during the race is being explained as a cooling issue that the team resolved...

If Hamilton had run Vettel off track then I could understand Marko's thirst for wheel banging. But he didn't. Vettel ran off course and many people can't accept what happened as a result of his...

Thanks for this. Unfortunately I don't have the combinations of access required so I haven't been able to watch the video. I will try and find it another way. I am hoping they deal with the fact...

Engines that Mercedes ran in Montreal

Lewis was supposed to have the new spec engine in Montreal. They indicated he qualified using it but there was an overnight engine removal due to a hydraulic leak. Does anyone know if the new spec...

It was a controversial decision for sure but I suspect it will withstand the scrutiny of an appeal. Vettel has to convince others that he was still in control when he reentered the track and was...

If the appeal by the FIA involves data from both teams, it will be hard to defend Vettel's actions if he didn't let up on the throttle. He was a bit reckless IMO. Had it taken just a half second...

Dude, for all you know the next owner might "pole" the car in 6 months and never get to the nasty part of the cheap. I say fix it on the cheap. Sell it. Move on. Good luck with the new assignment.

None of the 7 W124s I've had over the last 20 years have operated as the manual indicates. Is it a case of all of them having bad pods? Or is it a case of the same engineers who said the battery...

If the engine suddenly shuts off but easily restarts I would strongly suspect the relay. But you can verify this by listening for the fuel pumps to be running once the car stalls. Leave the key in...
