F1 puts brakes on rebound problem, ahead of Canadian GP

MONTREAL ( Associated Press) – Lewis Hamilton joked that he felt less than abuse in his spine after the seven-time Formula One champion driver’s car toppled around the Azerbaijan street circuit last week.

It took a full week for his body to recover as his new Mercedes experiences the “porpoizing” effect that plagued several teams after F1 cleared the way for implementing various aerodynamic techniques.

The FIA ​​moved beyond the Canadian Grand Prix with technical guidelines to combat the car boom that has been a by-product of the effects of changes in the ground effect of cars, a move welcomed by Hamilton in the interest of his of health

The British pilot has not seen a doctor for many of his ailments. He has instead turned to his personal physical therapist, Angela Cullen, for his recovery, but he can’t rule out the possibility that he and the other drivers are exposed to potential microscopes every time they’re on the track.

“I’ve definitely had more headaches in recent months, but I haven’t seen a specialist about it, so I’m not taking it too seriously. I’ve only taken pain relievers, so I hope I can.” There will be no injuries,” Hamilton said on Friday.

He rejected the idea that his condition was worse than other pilots because he is 37 years old.

“There is more to recover and I don’t think that day has anything to do with age. I think it’s usually just because the injury can be quite serious,” Hamilton insisted, adding that the issue of rebounding should be dealt with by Formula 1’s governing body for safety reasons.

“Except for the technical issue, I cannot stress enough the importance of health for us. Safety should be paramount.”

But the reaction to the change was different among the 10 teams.

For example, the Ferrari driver, Charles Leclerc, does not think the FIA ​​should intervene. He said that some teams have handled the issue better than others.

“I think it’s the responsibility of the team to offer me a car that’s okay to drive, and I don’t have a particular problem with that,” Leclerc said. “Yeah, it’s different from last year’s car, whether it’s not driveable or more difficult. For our part, we look for solutions to do better.”

Max Verstappen, the current F1 champion, is against a technical guideline for the same reason. Red Bull is not facing the same problems as Mercedes.

Mercedes and the teams most affected by the rebound issue need to raise the height of the cars to address the problem.

“The rebound we have right now isn’t pretty, and I think it’s not perfect, but some teams are handling it better than others.”
