      How can the gear shifts at Monaco be much closer together on a fixed ratio box, a box that was hologomated at the start of the year with the ratios it will use all year. So what you're saying then all be it inadvertently is you cheat when you goto monaco and fit an illegal gearbox and cheat. Nice

      F1 teams are only allowed 5 days of testing a year.

      the FIA mandates that teams are not allowed to collect data for non-official sessions or tests, so media appearances will run WET tires to prevent the telemetry from getting accurate data

      Thatโ€™s a complicated steering wheel even more so when you consider that delivering for Uber eats itโ€™s total overkill. Bottas that move from driving for Uber eats rather than Uber is a good one burgers donโ€™t talk.

      Well, the "extra this and that" makes the car faster, an all be it a very small part of racing, helps them win the competition, Which actually requires the drivers to think about more and less about the corners, which introduces a whole new element to the drivers skills.
