Arrow F1: Italian GP '20 (Monza & Mugello)

if it wont be postponed this time as well it ll be the first weekend without multiple engine maps.. it ll be interesting to see how it will affect the race pace and overtakes.. but one thing that looks certain that last years glorious Ferrari speed wont be on the track this year..

lets remember last years race.. the battle between Hamilton and Leclerc was awesome..



and here is the program for the weekend..

Jet mode and party mode..jet mode is gone and Merc party mode can still be left on with one setting and no prizes for guessing who will be having the highest tractable power setting out of the two

1:40..



yeah with some help of recent ridiculous currency exchange levels and a bit radical approach.. if you want to watch the race in Istanbul you only just need to pay 4 dollars for watching the race from green areas that has no seat a bit higher for other parts.. 4 dollars will be the price to witness the action live..
like a day of action price.. i guess until then race weekends will only be 2 days actually not 3 like now..

^Yes 3 each day the cost of a ticket for Turkish GP,you would be foolish not to go. The general ticket price for British GP will be 195 next year all being well with the covid.

back in 2011 it was something like that as well my friend because of the general regs of the tickets but since this year is extraordinary at least some good popped out of it.. exchange rate was 1.55 to dollars back then but now its 7.45.. you can guess the drama...
i hope it ll be a great race and F1 can come back to Istanbul in longer wise again..

Seb's final hurrah for SF at Monza

Most people like Seb and wish him a high finishing place at Monza the heart of Ferrari passion and fans will remember him for his humour as he finishes his races for Ferrari. Unfortunately he has been spreading some doom and gloom of what F1 will become in the near future and basically has pessimistic views that rule changes will steer F1 in the wrong direction and into oblivion.Whether he's referring to the hybrid V6...I don't know really what he's driving at and I'm not sure he does himself.
He said once to bring back the V12's which is the only thing that makes sense to me!

Also sad to see the Williams family's last hurrah. More change this year than normal, that's for sure!

he believes that he can be a champion with V12 again for some time already.. realistically it can be nice to have NA engines soundwise but it doesnt mean that Merc' will suck producing them anyway.. and last time V12's were used like what 25 years.. its a long shot..





and Alonso of course as he is so "agreeable"..

there was one more but i couldnt remember which race he sounded like he was about to cry..

I'd just be happy with a return to the V8's,all nice and simple without this hybrid nonsense.

It was just a touch so I don't see any issue..remembering the much heavier previous one and Max's car went faster after the repair!

Lots of cars exceeding track limits and going slow! Russell has said there's going to be a big accident if things continue like this.

i dont know but i guess this party-mode ban will backfire cause Merc's race pace is looking stronger now and they re still faster over one lap.. they re looking strong..

i believe there is a chance that Ferrari's can be lapped on Sunday's race that it wont make anyone happy i guess.. on the straights and at the corners they re clearly struggling as Leclerc repeated few times on the radio.. Vettel spun again and 4 mins later Leclerc had a similar situation at the same corner but he caught it.. it wont be a happy race for Ferrari's..

interestingly Alpha Tauris are looking stronger than ever here even not that behind Red Bull.. and Albon seems doing better this weekend again..
before the session ended Norris put together a neat lap that maybe its a signal that McLarens will be on stage as well this weekend..

forgot the honorable mention from Norris.. this guy is one of the unique characters ever on the F1 grid..

So I understand this same power mode must be used in quali and race as well as practice 1-3?

How can you hate Vettel? He spent Thursday evening taking pictures of the Ferrari team (700 members) and paid 40 for each one to be added to the grandstand. His and Leclerc's pictures are with them. The money he spent goes to the Italian healthcare first responders.

Yes mate . With a higher risk that some things like the PU can blow during the race !

As for MAX. @quote/TheTerminator : *I'll be back* !
