    It's easy to solve the porposing. Just raise the ride hight. But then you lose the downforce, so you're worse off. The solution last time they had ground effect cars, was small openings in the side skirts. Side skirts are not allowed now, so it's way trickier to solve without losing a ton of downforce. The Ferrari is bouncing like a kangaroo in high speeds, but despite this, they are able to go way faster in high speed corners than for example Mercedes.

    Guess you meant valve? Anyway, it's Not allowed to use movable parts in the aerodynamics, apart from the rear wing DRS.

    The pit lane for Miami before the race was absolutely ridiculous
    So many absolute no marks (social media who’s) filling it up
    Brundle was funny though, he had no idea who he was talking to

    Love the tall guy he was talking to and ended up saying "sorry I thought you were someone else. I don't know who you are" :D:D

    Looks like red bull have played this perfectly.
    Barring something fudging up, this should be Verstappen by a long way

    Boring race in Miami. Expected more action from that race track. Perez should be sacked for not being able to pass Sainz, considering he had brand new tires for the last 10 laps! Could have been fun with some rain.

    Agree, it was boring but definitely got the feel that it would have been after watching the dross that was Qualifying. Street circuits are snorefests. The other annoyance was how much Camera time Christian and Geri got, just fudging wrong really.

    Well, there's a snorefest coming up next, that isn't a street circuit. Barcelona is pretty much always one of the dullest races.

    Far too many street races on the calendar now, with another coming next year.

    Another one? I'm no hardcore fan but I seem to remember a few years back when countries wanted to enter F1 it was sort of impossible and felt like it was 'one in, one out' on the calendar. Now they just seem to be expanding like crazy. So many races now

    That'll be the Bernie Ecclestone era vs the Liberty Media era.

    It's not about staging actual races anymore on properly laid out race tracks. It's about hosting 'events' and creating 'fan experiences'. Miami was the classic example. Beautiful people in a beautiful setting - well, the beaufitul settings of the race weekend social events miles from the track in Miami Beach.

    can you pinpoint a race which isnt dull, i can only watch this procession for about 5 mins, or should i be understanding how downforce is affecting the car's ability on chicanes but that sounds like a physics class? am i missing something ?
