Personal preference of course. Very nice and straightforward. Business-like and professional yet without any 'we found improvements' and such. Maybe its because we have hit rock bottom, with nowhere else to go but up. Maybe it's because I have given up, especially since there's no test before the next race. But personally my expectations for this race is zero and the HF1 statement does not serve to embarass HF1 (in my eyes) should they live up to my expectations :P. But if suddenly they end up in mid-pack, I might even be tempted to celebrate ! LOL !

Hmmm..... you think HF1 read this forum and decided to go safe with this release ? Hahahaha.... just joking. Fat chance of course.

The problem with trying to test for next year that the rules are very different for next year and so they can't possibly test next year's car in the remaining races for this year. Though I think the thought might have crossed HF1's mind ? heheheheheh

Is that the meaning of 'emo' ? Not a lot different from 'ignorant is bliss' isn't it ? LOL, just joking.

Actually it might shock a lot of you guys but I actually think Honda -can- do well here at Monza. My logic is simple (and a lot naive too I bet). We know Honda's aero sucks, in the sense that they just can't get a good aero package that has high-enough downforce. Now Monza is a low-downforce circuit, 30% reduction as Honda puts it. This means that every team will need to downgrade their aero to get less downforce. This can mean that Honda needs to downgrade less and now be at equal level to the rest of the teams. I.e. if Honda's aero package is rated 8, top teams like McLaren and Ferrari may be rated at 10. So every race Honda suffers from aero. But now at Monza, ALL have to downgrade to a level 7. So Honda no longer suffers from an aero handicap. Of course the other dependency is that braking stability and car driveability is all important at Monza too and I can only hope that in these areas, we don't suck as bad as our aero !! :P
