    FIA has now confirmed that there were no flags at the time Hamilton got there (so too close to Bottas for marshals to react), which is why he didn't get penalized.

    Formula 1 rule changes: The Secret Aerodynamicist
    October 30, 2019
    The aim of the new regulations is to make it easier for one car to follow another car without losing performance, and therefore to get closer racing and more overtaking.

    This is where the new regulations come in. In order to try to reduce this problem and allow cars to follow much more closely, F1 has taken a two-fold approach.

    The first step is to tightly restrict what geometry we can design at the front of the car, particularly the front wings and in the areas around the front wheels.

    This will reduce our ability to push the tyre wake away from the car.

    The second is to allow for much more powerful diffusers - the curved part of the rear floor of the car, where the air underneath the car exits - and rear wings.

    This is intended to have the effect of scooping up the wake and throwing it over the top of any following car - creating an 'up-wash', as it is known.

    There is concern from some quarters that this extra up-wash itself will reduce the performance of the following car, particularly the front wing.

    This is one of the concerns the big teams have pointed out to F1 when criticising the rules - that the new cars will be afflicted by a catastrophic lack of front-end grip.

    However, the research conducted by F1's in-house aerodynamic department appears to suggest that this is outweighed by the increase in clean air delivered to the second car.

    There have also been noises from some teams suggesting that the lack of freedom will make the cars look more uniform and reduce the reward for doing a good job of design.

    RBR will for sure keep Albon imho. Kubica is out, Latifi in at Williams. Gasly and Kvyat still at Toro Rosso or Alpha Tauris or whatever it'll be called. Hulkenberg reserve driver Ferrari?

    I'm pretty sure Hülkenberg just said in some interview that he's not interested to be a reserve/test driver for any team, he'd rather leave F1 altogehter

    okay sounds plausible, he can go to wec if he wants to win the wec championship to add to his le mans, then kubica as reserve driver somewhere, he brings a sizeable budget but I doubt he will be able to drive fp1 or something

    Not quite "leave F1 altogether" but not driving next season is an option and definitely not reserve/test driver for anyone

    Sky commentators seemed to be saying this was a confirmation that you can do certain things? Or is that a different ruling?

    You mean you can't? The ruling means you can't do something that influences the fuel flow sensor.

    Anyhow the race was kinda boring imo. Not much happened and no three way close fighting at the front.

    Giovinazzi has been confirmed to drive for Alfa Romeo next season too, so looks like Hülkenberg is out of F1 for next season.

    guess the italians still have some say then, there were speculations that alfa romeo would be toning down their involvement since the car company is not doing well

    hulkenberg is better than stroll, but hulkenberg's father doesn't own a racing team in f1 so thats out. lets face it, it's not likely that hulkenberg will return to f1 if he sits out a year

    Albon confirmed to race for RBR in the 2020 season. Great news, he's been very good.

    Also Toro Rosso (or was it Alpha Tauri next season already?) will continue with Kvyat & Gasly

    "yay"

    lol I am not big fans of either, but sure Red Bull are in a pinch since they are in the business of mainly destroying careers and thus their young drivers programme is barren of talent

    And Ferrari sets the record for most self inflicted failures.

    Well done by Gasly to hang on for 2nd.
