Mexico - race
Myvatn 27 October, 2019 20:00
Good race by Kubica (or poor by Russell?).

Quite close to Haas on pace too.

I guess they now really regret that they didn't figure this tactics out when it would have really made a difference- in German GP!

Regardless of stupid comments that "some" of his fans are writing all over the net, he was having a very good race this time.

His televised overtake on Russell was great. I didn't know he got a puncture, shame but it doesn't matter in the end

Watch Roberts onboard. He was very surprised, that he has to pit. He didn't feel any starnge with the car. You think, that driver dosnt feel puncture?

How many times have you heard from the team this year or previous years "slow puncture -box". Bullsh*** and You know that!

Yep, good racing by him.

Such a shame his clown fanboys cannot cherish that and choose to whine about non-existing conspiracy theories instead.

No idiot, sometimes they don't.

Last time a driver had a tyre failure with slow puncture leading to blow his tyre was Seb in 2017 and here's his comment afterwards : Sebastian Vettel: Well there was no sign of that happening.

Correct. Teams can see the psi seeping before it has a noticeable impact on the tyre performance. It's better to pit them asap then let it deflate and start taking chunks of bodywork. It's not the first time a team has been aware of a puncture before the driver felt it. Fairly sure it happened to Bottas last year.

Either way the pace of our cars was poor and slower that what George had led us to believe.
i would say almost 1 second a lap slower than envisaged.

If this car is getting better it is minimal.

Williams beat Grosjean on merit so it's far from the worst we've seen this season.

Re: Mexico - race
Andrew Hooper 28 October, 2019 09:37
I can not believe that someone would feel that the team would pit him for no reason. How far do these people really want to push their totally idiotic ideas. Not doubt if they didn't pit him and the tyre failed as a result they would still have gotten stuck into the team.

Re: Mexico - race
Andrew Hooper 28 October, 2019 09:49
Now a comment on the race. I really did feel that Kubica had a good race that showed that he can run with his team-mate. Russell felt his passing move was a bit hard but to me it looked OK.

I still can't understand how the feeling in the car could change from Saturday to today. Kubica said it was surprising but no changes would have been made to the car under parc ferme. Is it all down to his use of the soft tyre.

It's quite obvious that Robert got the 'trick tyres' this weekend. He has been complaining that George gets them every race.

The team had heard a rumour that there would be post-race scrutineering, so they had to call Robert in and hurriedly replace them with regulation tyres. And of course he has to pretend to be surprised.

The business about a puncture was just a cover story.

Hello, this is my first post, but im here quite often, reading your opinions and infos winking smiley
Im polish, and obviously Robert fan. I've just read siwy_dymek posts, and couldn't stop myself interfere.

Just so you know, not every Robert fan has such a stupid ideas. It's just that the most idiotic ones are often the loudest. I know that this behaviours are really annoying (i think even more for me), but just keep in mind that not every Robert fan is as deluded. Please dont judge us by such examples.

It's true that we assume Robert doesn't get equal treatment, but we also realise the difficult situation inside Williams, and we understand that it has to be like that - no one is mad about it. We are far from thinking that the team is deliberately disturbing Robert's races - that's insane.

And just so you know, despite all the difficulties, i personally am thankful for the chance that Robert got thanks to Williams, and i can see by lots of Roberts interviews that he is too. We are not as bad as the toxic part of our community is making us look.

I hope that this will ease things out a little.

Cheers smiling smiley

I think after this weekend the equal treatment thing can finally be put to bed as nonsense forever. His qualifying was as per tradition not as good as George's. Stands to reason that's because of his awful and unequal car. But then he is seemingly better in the race. Under park ferme conditions it's quite clear the car he drove in the race is identical to the one he qualified with, but he put in a performance on par with if not better than George. if his car was truly 1s a lap slower, that performance would simply not be possible.
