  • Hi guys, Matt here. Just wanted to make sure a few parts in the video were clarified here: - DAS changed the ‘camber levels’ not camber itself. More specifically the toe. - Aston Martin have changed their chassis with their development tokens so green Mercedes is a tad unfair 😜 - DAS means Dual Axis Steering System but apparently I just didn’t fancy saying ‘steering’ in the voiceover 🤦🏻‍♂️ Thanks guys & gals and hope you enjoyed the rest of the video!

    • Was wondering how you managed to confuse camber with toe on the Mercedes DAS system. Cannot wait for the season to start and return of internets best reactions with the race run down, always has me laughing 😆. Keep up the excellent content as its got me through the off season for sure.

  • uhh, the main purpose of DAS was to change toe. camber changes very slightly when you change toe, but that's more of a result of moving things on the front end as opposed to any sort of intention. you should have listed that it changed toe instead of camber and then trying to double down on it in the comments.

  • The regulations have changed JUST to stop Mercedes from being too quick and also Racing point. They’re the only teams who have show a sign of being slower than last year and I think the FIA did it aimed Towards Merc and RP just to slow them down. DAS was banned a d the Race has increased which effected Mercedes and RP but no other team.

  • I appreciate this immensely. I don't think giving the teams less information about these cars while making them slower will be beneficial. I think it'll just make a mess with more crashes as drivers push for the limit but it isn't explicitly stated so it'll be a frequently explored area

  • Hemp can be used to create a substance with similar characteristics as carbon fibre, bamboo can be used to create very strong and absorbant, although i doubt the second is useful in f1 lol, fabrics. It can also be used to create light fluid tight containers and tanks, both are also very fire resistant once developed into other phases. I suspect both will be used for race suits and helmets also.

  • Less Practice Time? Safety? Evening the Playing Field? Wouldn't reducing the amount of time the drivers get to practice the track with the car decrease the safety of the racing? The cars change constantly throughout an F1 session, and the drivers are going to try to get 110% out of them regardless of how much practice they get, so I would think that more practice would help the sport be safer, and reducing the amount of practice would hurt that. Also wouldn't more practice help the lesser drivers learn the track better and thus keep up with the better drivers who learn the car and track more quickly during practice? I would think that reducing the amount of practice time would actually give drivers who are quicker to get what they need from practice and advantage. I know the are all very skilled drivers, but they are also all different people who adapt the these things differently. I don't see what advantages there are to reducing the practice time. Could someone who knows F1 better then me please explain this?

  • F1 is supposed to be about technological innovation. Every time a team makes a major development, the idiots at the FIA ban it. What they need to do, is in 2 or 3 years just make the developing team share it with other teams. So many F1 innovations have just been thrown in the dumpster because of the morons at the FIA.
