Keep in mind that, given the global reach of F1 and its attendant transportation costs, plus the requirement that all cars use custom in-house designs, $140 meg is chicken feed.
Watching Azerbaijan and what the hell, I thought Mercedes solved the porpoising problem? Why are they still so slow?

I was going to Google the ages of Leclerc Sainz Perez Verstappen Hamilton Russell and see if he is that much older than the rest of them, Russell is faster than Lewis also.

He’s 37 years old, the rest of them are in their 20s I’m betting. No idea if that has anything to do with it but anything is possible.

Everyone seems to be going bouncy bouncy bouncy on those long bumpy straights in windy old Baku. There's been some hand wringing about how they thought they were on top of the porpoising problem but really weren't.

At the rate Haas is destroying race cars, they're gonna hit the budget cap pretty soon.
