    That's certainly a dimension to this season I hadn't considered. Last year, teams regularly raced with less than the 100 kg allowance on board. But with more downforce and more resilient tyres, a greater percentage of the race will be run at something close to "maximum attack". Is saving fuel rather than protecting tyres going to become a bigger factor in determining race pace?

    It was a complete fluke. I stumbled upon the video while watching something else, and I thought "hang on a minute - there's something going on here". So I came back to your post, and gradually realised the eerily perfect fit (so eerie that I ended up re-reading your post and re-watching the video several times to check that I wasn't missing something).

    Finally, with quiet satisfaction at my accidental discovery and clever deduction, I reached the inevitable conclusion... "Blimey! DHCanary is Andy Cowell!"

    :cool:
