I really wonder what MK's reaction would be if MAX replaced 7ewis at Mercedes in '22 .
Well here we go => MKSixer ?
Of course , It would be even better if they were teammates in '22 !
That would be really *something !!!

Honestly I would LMFAO !!!

I wouldn't worry too much, the PU cover is so squashed over it both sides so appears small maybe something coming off air inlet. Would love to travel to Brackley and catch a glimpse (007 spy)

Super busy at work today for 12 hours ...Ough !

But I got notifications on my smartphone regarding the Mercs gearbox issues .
And I saw your post regarding the Merc gearbox issue in your Red Bull Powertrains thread ..

So I had to find out what was going on , and saw it .
Think It's the picture of the day ...

Grandma was spying the top secret gearbox from MAX !

Yes my friend, the HAM brigade are keeping quiet as mice
Max stays top and I think he got all his best 'at point' times on the same lap which spells good news, found the optimum set up.

Max must be over the moon with pulling the trigger on that final set up and the AT boys didn't do too badly.
Those dimples on the Merc so far haven't shown their worth, Merc's solution for a g/box gear change problem is simply to replace the whole box heheh no expense spared and it happened even before BOT moved.

Indeed my friend .

Max ran first with a low downforce setup to feel the cars reaction and behavior at the limit and went back in for more downforce .
As you can see the RB16B is very powerful , and a great save by MAX anyway !
The air and track was dirty by a sandstorm , tomorrow another sandstorm will hit the Bahrein track ...
Not much later MAX pulled the trigger with a P1 !

Even a brave Norris couldn't risk more in a McLaren and so far the Mercs look like sleeping ducks..lets hope they remain like that with their dimples in a twist

Do you jokers honestly believe the times are representative? Since when does Testing day 1 mean anything? Max at the top of a chart that means literally nothing for the rest of the season. Congrats. Hold it tight. It might be the only time it happens for the next 12 months.

Jokers ???
Yeah Merc worked really hard during the winter break when last year Merc suddenly showed up with the DAS advantage .
You guys had a big hat on by saying it was an invention ..So it was !

So , as you can see today last winter Red Bull worked really hard as well !
Testing day 1 ?
That's what Max showed today ..And more he will show !

What's wrong with that ?

DAS was an invention. I am not discrediting anyone's hard work or gains over the winter. Im simply saying this season isnt signed/sealed/delivered since Max came in first in testing.

Didnt Merc actually top the first test last year? LOL OK look at day 2

Day 2 from last year, Kimi topped the charts before going on to win or podium in...carry the 1. Zero races.
