Formula 1's aero flip-flopping is comical says Sebastian Vettel

Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel launched a scathing attack on the Formula 1 hierarchy after hearing that the rule changes for next year will make the cars slower by nearly 1.5 seconds compared to 2018.

Raikkonen conceded the supersoft tyres, which have given teams a headache this weekend, continued to pose a challenge for Ferrari. "I think in the sport and in technology we're developing and moving forwards all the time to pull us back", Hamilton said, as quoted on F1.com.

"I don't know if that's... it's not going to make any difference if you make us three seconds or one-and-a-half second slower, it's not going to make the racing any better".

"Obviously they have been changed a bit, the tyres, for whatever reason".

"I'm a bit disappointed but it could have been worse".

"So, it was definitely important, and I am happy too especially because I had such a busy week coming into this weekend".

Twitter is toying with encrypted direct messaging on the Android app
The encrypted communication would only apply to direct messages, so this doesn't mean users can publish encrypted tweets . Seemingly inspired by an exchange between Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2016.

But the reigning world champion admitted his Azerbaijan GP triumph did not feel as sweet due to the circumstances - Bottas suffered a puncture and Vettel locked up - and Hamilton is determined to win in a different manner on Sunday. We're not engineers, but we know exactly what's going on with the cars during the racing. In agreement with the FIA, a decision was made to reduce the thickness of the tyres for the Spanish, French and British Grands Prix - a decision that appears to be sparking some controversy after the first use of the thinner tread tyres. 2017 onwards, the cars have become much faster and much wider, but this had made the cars hard to overtake on the circuit.

"At the start of the season they were very strong in Australia and then we took over but they were struggling".

"I don't think it's particularly".

"In 2009 we went "let's go less aerodynamics for better racing".

"Well, before they introduced the chicane, I think they were doing high fifteens", replied Vettel. "We should be at least as fast as we are this year but just making racing better". "We really tried to continue to understand and be open-minded, it is easy for us to get stuck in our ways, and we definitely let loose and be open-minded to try to improve which is great". With the laps we put in I thought we would be more like a couple of tenths from pole, not six or seven, as our vehicle didn't feel too bad which is a little frustrating. "The auto was fine and we didn't have much to do".

When asked for his thoughts on the anticipated slower lap times, Hamilton said: "I think in this sport the technology we're developing and moving forward all the time..."
