Christian Horner insinuating that if Racing Point are guilty of breaking the rules for getting parts from Mercedes, then Mercedes would be in breach too.

Definitely gonna be a bit messy.

What I don't like about it is that if they are looking at parts/designed shared before the new rule came in then surely other teams have shared stuff in the past that still looks pretty similar in design?

Exactly. What are they supposed to do? Pretend they have forgotten what was on the documents and blueprints, and deliberately put an inferior part on the car?
Definitely more to this story than we are being told.

Haas is basically an old Ferrari is it not? Are they in play too?

Well they are saying that they didn't design the part themselves, and it is still identical to the previous year's design.

With the Haas, maybe after a couple of seasons they have modified the parts enough that it's changed enough for it to be a 'different' design.

Sounds like it. Hopefully I get my signal back before it rains in Spain. I'm pretty impressed with Radio 5 to be honest.

Good shout on Sky Go, I'll install that if it carries on.

It reminded me of those late 90's - early 2000's races when there was immediate "field spread" and the whole thing was a procession.

The main excitement today for me was losing my Sky signal in terrible weather (and thanks to T4V for reminding me that Sky Go exists!)

Incidentally there was a nasty incident in the F2 yesterday, Seal Gelael hit one of the sausage kerbs and the impact fractured his spine:

Hope he will have a speedy and complete recovery.

I do wish those kerbs would not be used, apart from being a substantial thing to impact there have been far too many times when single seaters have been launched off them. I don't believe there's any footage of what happened in this particular incident but the article says it was a 45G impact.

What are everyones thoughts on Albon and the Red Bull young driver program in general?

As far as I'm aware Albon is the 3rd of the Red Bull young driver program to go against Max and while he's undoubtedly fast the same goes for Gasly and Kyvat they wouldn't be in F1 if they weren't, none of them have matched up to Verstappen. Is that an inherent weakness if you promote from within, if none of the drivers can reliable bring in solid points for the team as a number 2 driver then Red Bull will be at a disadvantage.

I think some like Hulkenburg or Perez if he became available would be of greater benefit to the team and push Max and get more points for the team.
