Bottas didn't curb-stomp Massa.  Whether that was lack of motivation or a real indication of his talent....let's see.

Lewis has to be the favorite right now, unless some other team comes out with the 2017 equivalent of the double diffuser

The irony of homologation regulations intended to save the sport ending up killing the sport...

Bernie out, Chase Carey in.  We're all boned - people with handlebar mustaches are near-universally shitheads.

Also rumors of Brawn taking over some sort of "top job".

"Managing Director, Motor Sports"

 

I guess old man Bernie's job was split up to multiple people, with RB taking over the motor sports part of the equation, leaving the financial side to Bratches?

The subtleties of facial hair are lost on one who can't grow any :hs:. What would you classify Jamie Hyneman (from Myth busters) as? The walrus?

Brawn wants to setup a new group to figure out overtaking issues as he favors quality of passing rather then quantity and wants to get rid of DRS...

I'm liking the new lay of the land already...He's going to use the 17 season to see how it pans out, with the new aero rules and then formulate a long term solution instead of constantly changing the rules over and over.  In Brawn We Trust!

Cars look the same. Seems like they're just changing out the wings and keeping the body...

Kothaa1.pngI do like the lower rear wing, but yeah, not as crazy-a-departure as I would have liked.
