@ChrisMedlandF1 Is there any update on what Williams intends to do?

Williams says it has not yet confirmed what it is doing one way or another. Team has until tomorrow morning to do so. https://t.co/PSsMvpCAv3

Quoted @ChrisMedlandF1

Ferrari has confirmed it is appealing the Racing Point decision regarding the brake ducts, including Sunday's reprimand that was handed out for using them in the latest race #F1

In contrast, McLaren is NOT going ahead with its appeal. Says it respects the decisions of Ferrari and Renault to do so #F1 https://t.co/olmK47RgEW

Because absolutely nobody has asked me, here's a 2020 final championship order guess based on the six days of testing: 1. Mercedes 2. Red Bull 3. Ferrari 4. McLaren 5. Racing Point 6. Renault 7. AlphaTauri 8. Haas 9. Alfa Romeo 10. Williams Whatcha got? #F1 #F1Testing

This was a guess at the final order which might not quite play out, but I’ll admit I didn’t think it would be Alfa Romeo and Haas being the wrong way round that ruined this at this point of the season #F1 https://t.co/pUa5IILE2o

In the car on Friday for FP1 will be our Official Test Driver, @RoyNissany 👌 #SpanishGP 🇪🇸 | #WeAreWilliams 💙 https://t.co/zd2f1rJhFd

2020 Indianapolis 500 here we go! After a brief glitch last year this masterpiece by @JasonFowlerJLF didn’t get any use, so take 2 here we go.
Can’t wait to get going.

Le Mans joins the Indy 500 in going behind closed doors this year. Can someone hurry up and fix everything please?

Hamilton pits. Huge lock-up after the line... Speeding in the pit lane? #F1 #F170

I did ask Michael Masi about this tonight who said there was no issue. The speed limit at the pit entry and in the pit lane is monitored throughout all sessions and even between sessions, and Lewis was not over the limit even though he was locked up #F1 #F170 https://t.co/dSz9q0WSgL

Current status: Finally sent a race report I finished two hours ago but completely forgot to file. That comes after walking around Silverstone with my flies undone for the first two hours of yesterday, and being without my wallet for the full weekend. It has been a long week.

As part of an @F1 feature before the first race, I was asked what I think will be a big surprise in this delayed season. Went for this about Vettel. After this weekend, it feels closer to happening #F1

Lewis Hamilton as XNDA: "I'm about to show you domination ... Got the nana drippin' like a water fountain." Max Verstappen as Max Verstappen: "Mate this is the only chance to be this close to the Mercedes, I'm not just going to sit behind like a Grandma!” #F1 #F170

It turns out Renault DID protest Racing Point again today, but didn't need to after the technical delegate flagged up the brake ducts to the stewards and the reprimand was handed out anyway, so the protest has been withdrawn #F1 #F170

After Vettel and Ricciardo's spins today, it will be a brave driver trying to take a right hander on the inside of Sainz next weekend. Clearly some sort of force field on the go there #F1

Confirmation of a reprimand for Racing Point - as the stewards said it will be every race - for using the same brake ducts. Essentially no penalty. #F1 #F170

Quoted @PHortonF1

Mercedes drivers mentioning that blistering wasn't an issue on Friday - no possible way to come across it on the Hard tyre as they (along with all drivers) only had two sets all weekend, so didn't run them until the race #F170

And this is why less representative practice is a good thing IMO. A dress rehearsal only means teams are even more prepared for what's to come. Not knowing is what creates excitement. (I say representative practice, because you could still find ways of giving value for fans) #F1 https://t.co/zqlH11bLko

Not a great day for Williams, beaten by the Alfas and Grosjean so came home P18 and P19, but worth mentioning a strong drive from Latifi who was on Russell's pace throughout and crossed the line 0.6s behind him. Latifi fifth in terms of fastest lap too, 0.2s off Bottas #F1 #F170

Quoted @RacingPointF1

"We were forced to pit off the prime set. I got a couple of nice big blisters on both rear tyres and the vibration just got so quickly out of hand that within 2 or 3 laps it just skyrocketed. I don't think the tyre would have survived to the end." 🗣️ @HulkHulkenberg #F170 #F1 https://t.co/DU4CUklEIy

This is why Hulkenberg stopped for a set of softs with under 10 laps remaining, dropping him from P5 to P7 👇 #F1 #F170 https://t.co/Sd3loI5nxh

Quoted @ChrisMedlandF1

Technical delegate: "The front and rear brake duct assemblies used by car numbers 27 and 18 of (Racing Point) during the Qualifying sessions and the Race of the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix appear to be the same as the ones used during the Styrian, Hungarian and British GPs." #F1

So now Racing Point is summoned to the stewards for breaching the Sporting Regulations. FIA said in its decision on Friday that every use would be deemed a breach but that a reprimand would be sufficient on each occasion #F1 #F170 https://t.co/x3uqvCb5lM

Quoted @the_carr_fan

@ChrisMedlandF1 Any news on Hamilton speeding

Not even an investigation, so he must have got it slowed enough by the line even if he was still locked up after it. There's a speed gun that would register his speed on entry regardless, so if he didn't trigger it, he was under the speed limit #F1 #F170 https://t.co/JgaSTm2KtN
