    TR all Merc customer teams have said they do not have the engine mode that Merc use in qualifying. I think that's pretty conclusive.

    TR I think I read Williams have only paid for spec 4 version of Mercedes engines and not the latest to keep the costs down for them

    SO I don't think they have the engine with the qualifying boost

    As most teams don’t have a huge money package, and never will until success hits, obviously, success is hugely important. If you have works teams selling last years engines, or B engines to poorer teams, it doesn’t matter how good the team may be, they just won’t get to the top. Close maybe, but the works team with all the badges and whistles and kudos, won’t let them make it. It’s a no brainer. The sport needs independent engine suppliers.

    Which was great in the day's when Cosworth DFV engines were available because apart from a few manufacturer teams , the other teams could only really beat each other if they had a better chassis

    Haas put in a really strong performance until their wheel mishaps today. While I stand by my comment in the PQR thread that I wonder if they can maintain that pace across a season given the need to develop just to stand still in F1, it is great to see more teams in the mix.

    What did disappoint me massively was the attitude to the design of the car from a number of people around the grid this weekend. The accusation seems to be that the car is essentially a 2017 Ferrari. Prost, (as a 'true' Senna fan, a face I'd never get bored of punching) was extremely vocal in saying the FIA needed to look at the situation. Given that when Prost F1 folded in the early 2000's the diminutive Frenchman was very vocal about the lack of support little teams receive, especially from his native country you have to wonder why the change of tune from the Renault man?

    As far as I'm concerned, pass crashed test tick, passed scrutineering tick, two very competent drivers tick. Good luck Team Haas.

    Wheels have been around for thousands of year, screw threads have been around for hundreds at least, how is it they still keep on causing inordinate amounts of trouble?

    Because Vettel needed a safety car to get the win? *puts on tin foil hat*

    And me. More specifically a KMag fan as I love the 'drive it like you stole' it attitude he took on last year. Was looking forward to him and Max going at it as I'm pretty sure Magnusen is the one drive who on the grid who will take no crap from Verstappen.

    Reading this has really got my back up now.

    So much bitterness.

    I hope Haas have a season to dream of and shove it up the noses of everyone with a big stick.

    Force India, McLaren want 'magic' Haas-Ferrari F1 car investigated

    It's an important regulation that needs to be strictly enforced IMO. But issuing public statements like these makes the accusers look pathetic.

    Saying that, I'd like to see Haas call for McLaren to be investigated for bringing the sport into disrepute.

    To be honest, if an alleged 2017 Ferrari clone is quicker than a 2018 Force India Mercedes and McLaren Renault, who are the ones who have designed a crap car?

    Let's go back about 11 years, who were copying ideas from Ferrari through stealing technical information?

    cough... cough... Team Alonso

    I'm very glad Haas has started well the season and I really hope they stay ahead. I have a soft spot for them and I really wish there were more teams like Haas joining F1 these days

    Yes. Actual racing teams. Not someone just here to sell a product.
