    It doesn't really look like that in actual gameplay. Don't get me wrong, it's a sweet game and it's graphics are great but that's misleading. Also, F1 racing is about 0.5% of the actual game. There's a couple F1 cars but as it's always been GT7 is a sim racing game all about real GT cars.

    Translation:
    Yes, Mercedes will have ultra small bellies. It will have a frightening efficiency over the bottom, especially towards the slipstream/ rear/beam wing. On the other hand, the need to always have high enough incidences to generate load in the slow and under braking. The clue was the rear wing.

    I had wondered why they had more wing than anyone in Barcelona, with a +load config even with DRS open. It's something risky that could throw havoc, on others or on themselves, it could open a new door for the study of these F1, or be set aside.

    Even RedBull for example partially surprised with under-square by moving the efficiency line above the floor to look for more load with the wings but to a different extent. The 2022 cars have been heavily regulated and yet we are seeing even opposite paths.

    I am of the opinion that those who had less time made clear decisions (starting from the extreme) betting on a risk that is considered calculated by the great simulation skills. So the best technicians have married different concepts and this is the great news

    Basically Ferrari and merc have taken completely different approaches to side pod development. One will be right one will be wrong.

    given merc track record most people think it’ll be them

    I can’t see how Haas doesn’t suck so bad this year, not that there’s anything groundbreaking being said there.

    When they had a good engine and experienced drivers they probably had the best Class B car a few years back. (Admittedly when the rest of the class b cars were a mess - they've raised their level of competition significantly since)

    This year will be telling if they are a viable organization long term. They have been focused on this car since 2020 and Ferrari seem to be competitive on the power unit side.

    I haven't heard a single person defend the Ferrari approach. Even after the first testing session. Gary basically said he still didn't think the Ferrari made any sense.

    I don't know if either approach will be right or wrong. They both could work. I think the biggest upgrade for Ferrari isn't the bodywork, its the engine is now elite and could be on par of not better than RB and Mercedes. This weeks testing will be fun because it's going to be more about the engine

    Kevin was replaced by Mick. By all reports Ferrari is thrilled with Mick. I don't think he has anything to worry about.

    I'm curious if Haas did any digging on Oscar Piastri. He seems like the next mega young gun and Alpine Academy product.

    I guess Mags gives you a one year solid driver and the ability to reset and find a long term solution. With Piastri and Mick you would've had two young promising drivers who if they lived up to potential were out the door the moment a seat was open.

    Probably going to see Haas find another uber billionaire to finance the team and put a driver in that seat next year.

    Race is saying Gene is fully capable of funding the team himself but wasn't willing to do so until the cost controls were in place.

    Drop Kmag in 2020 to bring in Nikita and his money for 21’, not develop the car, spend it all on the 22’ car, fire Nikita and bring Kevin back before the 22’ season starts

    Scott Mitchell and Ed Straw sounded rather optimistic about the Haas car being pretty good and specific tracks. Said this new spec of car plays to KMags strength as well, does well with lots of understeer.

    That's interesting. I've read one of the main reasons RB has had a hard time finding a #2 behind Max while he's been there has been because Max is fast when cars are set up with a heavy bias toward oversteer.

    The thought is that like a lot of the young drivers, Max grew up in almost exclusively karting which has tons of oversteer because of a solid rear axle.

    So why wouldn't they get another young driver with that background. Albon was a karting guy I thought
