    I hate this type of video. His "race winning" setup was surviving the first lap (without car damage) and having clean pitstops. If Mercs hadn't f'ed up, he's 3rd, if Verstappen hadn't been taken out, he's 4th. Don't pretend this was a win on merit (not a dig at Perez, just a literal analysis of Racing Point's car - we all saw Russell jumping in and going for a win so the car is everything, talent is secondary). It was a great recovery drive that should have resulted in a strong points hall, we all agree. But it cheapens anything you say hereafter when you try to argue anything different to that. Likewise with the Alfa/Gasley Monza victory - hardly anything to do with the car and more about other team's monumental f' ups.

    Voltage limitation, rigid constrution and multiple layers of insulation protection barries is what they need to prevent shocks, even with a light it dosen't mean anything becasue guys sometimes may not notice it or it suddenly becomes live.
