If merc get on pole here which it looks almost certain they will they will be impossible to pass if they tyres go off. We could end up with some massive car trains

And that's why I'm not a big fan of Monaco; it's too narrow for F1 racing, especially with those hairpins.

Mercedes in secret Pirelli Formula 1 tyre test row

Mercedes is at the centre of a growing controversy ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix after it emerged the team had conducted a private 1000 kilometre tyre test at Barcelona after the last race.

The Brackley-based outfit has struggled to work out why its race form is no match for its qualifying efforts this season, having now secured four consecutive pole positions but struggled with tyre wear in the races.

AUTOSPORT can reveal that rival outfits have been left deeply unhappy that Mercedes was given a golden chance to boost its understanding of the issue with a private test at Barcelona last week. Due to weather interruptions, it extended over three days.

Although in-season testing is banned, it is understood that Mercedes was requested by Pirelli to help work through the issues that the Italian tyre manufacturer has experienced in the last few races.

According to sources at Mercedes, the test was allowed because Pirelli can call upon one outfit for a private test to help it with products if circumstances dictate.

Mercedes is adamant that its running at Barcelona was totally within the regulations, but high-level sources have revealed that other teams are not convinced and the matter has now been taken up with the FIA.

Team principal Ross Brawn said that his outfit had worked tirelessly on the tyre issue since Barcelona - but did not make reference to the test when asked about what the team had done since the Spanish GP.

"I think when we got back from Barcelona we had some pretty long and deep meetings and decided a course of action," he explained.

"There were a lot of things going on already, so I don't want to create the impression that we got back and all of a sudden we started work. There was a lot of work going on already.

"I think some of the work was refocused in areas that we thought were maybe more relevant and in the last couple of weeks, Bob [bell] has been directing all the engineering team to make sure that they focus on the areas that we felt were most important.

"We have come here with changes, and it is almost impossible at Monaco to judge those changes but we believe that they are relevant and give another snap shot of that at Montreal.

"But it won't be until we get to Silverstone that I think we can judge where we stand and there are more changes that we are trying - and trying to establish those changes in the best possible way with the limitations of going to races."

I'm amazed that's allowed. That potentially gives the chosen team an unfair advantage. (And if Ferrari was the chosen team, you'd be seeing even more "FIA = Ferrari International Assistance" posts.)

RTL haven't mentioned the controversy at all yet. Despite (or because?) having Niki Lauda as expert.

Just now they asked Lauda. His answer: Pirelli asked Mercedes and other teams if they want to run the 1000 km test after the Spanish GP. Mercedes GP asked the FIA if it's legal and got a written confirmation that yes, the test is legal.

Can someone please explain how Hamilton is 4th? I thought you weren't allowed to overtake under the safety car. So if he pitted, isn't he allowed to take back 2nd place?

And we have a red flag thanks to Pastor Maldonado.

It's always Maldonado's fault. He hit Chilton.

If you pit while the safety car's out, you can be overtaken without any repercussions.

And just heard from Martin Whitmarsh that the FIA have told Alonso when the race restarts, he has to give his position back to Perez.

Race will be resumed at 15:35 local time (10 minutes).

This has to be the most boring race I've seen in a while... the safety car driver looks set to win the race.

      Now that we're getting Windows 11 and things are starting to change up more than the past few years with Windows 10, I un-pinned the old Windows 10 thread and started this one.
       
      With the leaked build and the event coming on the 24th things are getting interesting once more.

      Electronic Arts officially confirms Codemasters acquisition
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Codemasters, the British video games company known for its wide range of racing titles, is now a part of Electronic Arts. The acquisition has been in the works for some time now, and today, EA officially confirmed the move on a blog post that welcomed the racing giant into the fold.

      The acquisition has been an interesting journey to keep an eye on. Take-Two Interactive was originally in talks to purchase Codemasters with a deal that involved almost a billion dollars. However, EA threw a wrench into the takeover talks by making a "knockout bid" worth $1.2 billion, which Codemasters went on to accept in December.

      "This is the beginning of an exciting new era for racing games and content as we bring together the talented teams at Electronic Arts and Codemasters," said Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson in a statement. "Racing fandom continues to grow worldwide, and the franchises in our combined portfolio will enable us to create innovative new experiences and bring more players into the excitement of cars and motorsport. Our teams will be a global powerhouse in racing entertainment, with amazing games for players on every platform, and we can’t wait to get started."

      EA's racing portfolio already includes popular franchises like Need for Speed and Burnout. Now with Codemasters on its side, that list is increasing to include Dirt, GRID, Formula 1, and Project CARS, among other series that expand the publisher's scope beyond just arcade racers while also enabling it to have multiple racing game launches a year.
