And this week we go to Italia
And I had some very exciting days with all the announcements for Kimi, Gasly, Yuki, Bottas, Russell, Albon and Latifi. What's more to come?

Obviously testing the halo. Since they are so far ahead in the championship, they have the time and space to do some testing and modifications to their car. I heard Lewis will in fact have Mercedes side assist with rear traffic alert next time. Max will test the Red Bull Technologies version of emergency city br(e)aking.

Ps Japanese fans are the best fans. They are always happy. They don't care where they finish with honda. They were like the happiest McLaren fans in 2015. I would be if I had Fernando Alonso AND Jenson button in my team. And still be last. With a GP2 engine. But they were happy. That's just amazing. I am a fan of Toyota in the wec and takuma Sato (2-time indy-500 winner Takuma Sato) in indycars. Ioved Audi sport team Joest for their ruthless efficiency and speed, I loved the porsche 919 hybrid for its marvelous v4 engine with mgu-h. But I adored the Toyota team in the wec. They were not always the fastest. And if they were, they still lost le mans. Twice in a row. But they persevered. And I like that. A lot.

Sausages or bananas that deter in the turns/curves are somewhat dangerous ... also give you wings.😄
Super happy to see both get out of the car and walk to the pits.💓

Although the accident could have been catastrophic I would not have penalized Max.
IMHO they are both right and wrong, although these fights are not necessary, virtuosity is in them.

I agree, no penalty is fine. What many people seem to underestimate is that these drivers have to make very important decisions in very short times while in the absolute chaos of an F1 car.
For me, it's not difficult to understand that these things happen. It takes two to tango. In this case, there was no tango. Both could have avoided, but in the sequence leading up to the clash, there have been many errors (slow pit stop from Max, bad strategy from Mercedes, slow stop from Lewis, Max going over the sausage kerbs).

They both came out in the graveltrap without injury. Let's move on. 2 points for Max, 0 points for Lewis. I'm looking forward to Russia. Bottas always goes well there.

Totally agree, it seems incredible the large number of coincidences in times and spaces for both to coincide in one of the most critical points of the Monza circuit.
In Russia there are no gravel traps, watch out for the walls ...
I hope Super Lando and McLaren in Sochi have a good race again.

Read through a lot of this thread and it’s very interesting. I was looking to lower my polo gti 6c 1.8 I already have springs but it’s not sitting quite as low as I’d like. I read the messages about the Cupra rear mounts and would like to know if you had a part number of the specific vehicle the part is from. Also interested to ask if you had used the front top mounts to lower the vehicle I know power flex make -10mm top mounts for the gti 6c just needed an option for the rear. Any help appreciated. Thanks

The part number is 1J0512149 without suffix.
It came on i.e. Audi TT 8N, Ibiza, Arosa
