Arrow F1: French GP '21

since its designed more like a test track i guess not much fans love this track.. actually i prefer Magny-Cours as the French GP but this is what we ve got.. at least overtaking over here is that hard and the track has so much mercy for mistakes..

the race from '19..



program for the weekend..

HAM was victorious in the last two Paul Ricard GP's (2018, 2019) and the previous winner of the last GP held here was in 1990 when Prost won in the Ferrari.

Hopeful the W12 is on pace to claim its third victory in a row at Paul Ricard.

Accurate statement, that HAM will need a dominant car to resume winning Grands Prix If the playing field is leveled, we will likely see Mad Max claim another victory!

Fernando has zero chance in his Alpine vs Red Bull , Mercedes and Ferrari .
A top-10 would be great for him...

Changing the name from Renault to Alpine seems to have made the car worse,one visible problem is the wide air intake body above the drivers helmet.

More news I've just read is that both failed tyres separated from the inner rim of the wheel because of inner tyre wall failure which they have already said so the tyres were basically bloated but still in one piece .
The standard tyre for Le Castellet will be the yellow marked C3 where at Baku the white marked 'hards' were a problem for AM and RB.
There is a 50% chance of rain for the race at time of reading..

New rules coming in about tyre pressures, random checks on tyres AFTER they have been run.

The wind is good news for RB probably more than Merc and looking forward to how those new engines will perform on that track where Merc has been good in the previous years.
How was work my friend?

How was work my friend?
Work was hot . Actually too hot with some injection molds running on 400C !Today we got 32C , tomorrow even hotter !
Came home and I was very thirsty . Honestly ,I just drank 2 dark Gordon Scotch beers with cheese cubs in celery salt ...
All I can say is wow "Good Lord" and cheers my friend ! LOL ...

Note : Don't be worried my friend ,according my Japanese engineer colleagues the new HONDA-spec '2 PU is outstanding ..

Of course let's keep in mind that Mercedes is never standing still...

Of his limited mistakes, 7ewis usually doesn't make the same one twice.

But let's see what happens.
