Because both the new car ran by massa and the old car ran by stroll were @#$%&, not just the new one. Massa was 3 tenths up on stroll when running different packages. When they were on the same updated one, the difference was a tenth. It works.

They require time to understand the changes and make best use of it... spelled differently, they need mileage and data analysis.

Patience.. this are just the first and mostly in the front of the car, for what I read there will be changes to the back of the car to and then you'll be able to properly evaluate the quality of the upgrades.. wait ..

the new updates are working fine!

[www.motorsport.com]

That was exactly what I thought after the first free practice session, after encountering great difficulties in using new tyres. In the end, the telemetry data showed that that the updates were producing on track exactly what we were expecting.

Both cars today had skinny wings on, but Massa had the newer one (Austria) and lance had the older one (Baku).

BTW Mikef1, is there a rumor in the paddock of a new gearbox for Williams in Hungary?

The team I was with knew the Williams gearbox to be a matter of fact. But that it would be a push to get it ready for hungary. I observed that it was odd to see such huge development at the middle of the cat with no real change at the rear and the consensus was felt with people I spoke to. It would appear that this update at Austria may be part of a bigger whole.

If gearbox and rear suspension were identified as the weakest link and could have been fixed (upgraded) as fast as the rumour mill says... then hail the upgrade city.

Let's see if the problem was identified correctly and upgrade gets us somewhere once implemented.
