  1. I don't think so, unless RB keep pushing the narrative strongly. Hopefully they can move on after a bit of complaining this weekend.
  2. Max has an awful lot to say about it for someone who wanted to stay out of it though: https://www.racefans.net/2021/07/29/verstappen-surprised-stewards-did-not-wholly-blame-hamilton-for-crash/ https://www.racefans.net/2021/07/29/hamilton-waving-a-flag-like-nothing-happened-shows-what-mercedes-are-really-like-verstappen/ Honestly hope this is just thrown out. What a waste of time. Racing incident through and through
  3. Welcome, I look forward to seeing your car. A good choice if I do say so myself
  4. That's hilarious. When the fuel gets too low, all the indicators point at the fuel warning light.
  5. Out of interest does the cost of a lawyer come out of RBR's budget cap?
  6. What I do find a little worrying in my experience is quite a lot of drivers coming in the opposite direction tend to drift towards the Evora. I presume that this is because they are staring and your hands tend to take you where you are looking. It happens quite a bit though and it's quite disconcerting.
  7. I believe 60l is true. I trust you have the long ratio gear box. On a run, I think I can get into the mid 30s, I've seen some on here have returned over 40mpg at times but I'm relatively certain it's impossible with the short ratio box.
  8. What's it like on the road with that negative camber dialed in? Do you find it tugging and wandering a lot?
  9. I agree C8. Racing incident. Both could have avoided, I think it was important for Lewis not to yield here though. As per the end of the video you posted, he has, time and again yielded to Max to avoid accidents as the more mature driver. Unfortunately, you can't do that and fight a World Championship from behind, especially against someone who will just assume you are going to yield. You need to set a marker down and say, if you do that, there will be contact. Hamilton was alongside as they approached the corner. The folks who say it was front to rear wheel contact proves it was Hamilton's fault don't realise that a driver trying to be more sensible and slowing down is the one who will end up looking more at fault. Max obviously saw Hamilton, waited for him to lift (which he did slightly) and then tried to chop across to make him lift more/brake and give himself space, it didn't work. Live by the sword etc..
  10. Hope you've got it in gear! The handbrake gives me the jitters
  11. It's funny, I've had leather dashes on old cars before and never had an issue leaving it out in the sun. This suggests to me that it's the particular leather that they are using that is the problem (or the way they are fitting it). It must be sortable fairly easily by a retrimmer
  12. Sorry, don't know the exact location! Both waved.
  13. All my in-laws are Japanese and so are a lot of my friends. I have that problem all the time but it's accidental.
  14. Can you not get it retrimmed by someone into something less affected by the sun? Better quality leather must be fine as other cars don't have this issue. If I was retrimming the whole dash, I'd just upgrade it at the same time... Although it'll cost a bit more than the current quoted price.
