of course not. Red Bull has an outstanding car that will trash the others in the Spa corners, and now they also have the f-duct to help on the long straights.

You're probably a Mclaren fan that is jealows, get over it, your team's car is almost 2 second slower :p

PS: If only that weather prediction happened tomorrow :(

yes it would be then interesting, cuz the bulls would have to pass him, and its easy to pass when ur car is 0.700 fastest of 3rd place car, it would for sure bring the excitment


I don't think it would be so easy because the RBR cars gain their advantage in S2 when there are mid speed corners. Following a car closely, they will lose the aeordynamical downforce in those corners. The only part where overtaking is more likely possible is at the entry of turn 1 and turn 2. But for that, the cars need a good mechanical grip and a good traction at the exit of the last corner. The entry of the chicane after the turn 5 hairpin could be a good overtaking point at the beginning of the race when Option tyres will worn out.

Will we see RedBull making the same performance as McLaren did in 1998 at Melbourne, when they lapped everyone? Or will we see Alonso making a storming start to win the race? Will we heared a coded message from any team? Will we see people playing in the slide of Hungaroring? Will Petrov finish the race? Will you sleep during the race?
Don't ever think about a safety car, I'm almost sure that there wouldn't be any :p

RB gain in the slow sector, true. They are also the slowest two through the speed trap. Webber was 11mph slower than Sutil in P3. Only one problem here though. Even if IF Alonso somehow gains the lead ahead of them both, all it will take is for the bulls to go an extra lap, two max, and that 1.2 second advantage will get them ahead...... Barring a failure it will take Seb pulling his chop block start and Webbo not backing down for the bulls not to win.
It's just a FORUM!!!

I thought the FIA had already inspected the wings and declared them legal? They are doing it again? And why would they inspect Mclaren's (MW already said they were fastest of the fixed wings, :lol: )

Dun tell me FIA wanna "pass" these wing secrets to other teams to push forward other teams to make it more exciting

MW has also agreed that their wings move but they dont flex beyond the permissible limits. so probably even they are being scrutinized.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

the thing is MW has spent more time complaining about redbull this season . ride height control ... and now this ...

that comment about being the first among the fixed wing cars was just silly ...

what does he mean... Mclaren is down 1.7s and all of it is down to flexible wings ?

Five place grid drop for Kobayashi for not stopping for a weight check, his chances of making the top 10 look slim now :(

RBR has an insane amount of grip, from the onboard shots they are taking so much more apex speed compared to the McLarens, and even the Ferraris.

Yrah, if nothing strange happens, they'll be running away with the victory. If they are just as quick as in the quali, they might lap the entire field. On the other hand, it is Red Bull. In the races they are usually less fast then in quali.

So, McLaren knows they got work to do. Such a wing could prove useful at Spa.
