Good grief - I have just discovered that I won last season !!

My bad for not having looked after the final race of the season, but I hadn't realised that I stood a chance. Belated thank you to those who congratulated me, and my sincere apologies for not replying to you at the time and thanking Mike for his kind dedication in running this thread for us (and to my parents etc. etc. ...)

Have to confess that it was a real fluke - I defer to most of you in my knowledge of the sport, although I did actually go to my second Grand Prix last season (took my teenage sons to Spa, and they loved it - in fact my eldest subsequently did his EPQ at school in a Formula 1 safety-related subject).

Still, "Reigning Champion" has a nice ring to it, even though it will be a very brief tenure ...

From the BBC:
Red Bull have lodged an official protest against a controversial and revolutionary steering system on Mercedes' 2020 Formula 1 car. Red Bull allege that the so-called dual-axis steering system breaks the rules on two counts. These are that it constitutes a moveable aerodynamic device and that it is an adjustment to the suspension while the car is in motion.
DAS alters the 'toe' of the front wheels by moving the steering wheel. The 'toe' is the angle of the front wheels in relation to the longitudinal axis of the car. F1 cars operate with a degree of 'toe-out' - which effectively means that the front part of the tyres are turned outwards by a few millimetres. This is beneficial when the driver turns in to the corner as it gives them more grip and stability but causes a degree of 'scrub' on the straights, where the tyre is dragged across the track at an angle, which causes its temperature to rise.
In the Mercedes system, the driver can pull on the steering wheel to straighten the front wheels as he comes on to a straight and then push back on it to revert to the 'toe-out' position as he enters a corner. The potential advantage is two-fold: it changes the amount of tyre 'scrub' on the straights, allowing the team to adjust the temperature of the tyres; and it could reduce drag to increase straight-line speed.

The system has been banned by a change of rules for 2021, but governing body the FIA has already said it considers DAS to be legal under the current rules. The success of the protest, lodged with the stewards at the delayed season-opening race in Austria this weekend, will be determined by whether officials agree with the FIA's assessment of the system. It has been declared legal on the basis that it complies with a rule that states: "The front wheels are adjusted solely by the steering and under the full control of the driver."

But Red Bull have lodged their protest on different grounds, namely articles 3.8 and 10.2.3 of the technical regulations. Article 3.8 says that any part of the car that influences its aerodynamic performance "must be rigidly secured to the entirely sprung part of the car" and "must remain immobile" in that relationship. Red Bull contend that the change in the angle of the front wheels gives Mercedes an aerodynamic advantage by reducing drag on the straights. And article 10.2.3 says "no adjustment may be made to any suspension system while the car is in motion". The success of that part of the protest will depend on whether stewards consider DAS to be part of the suspension system or, as Mercedes will contend, the steering.

It has been claimed that Mercedes are using the system only on the drivers' first laps out of the pits, which suggests that it is being used to generate tyre temperature for the start of qualifying laps. But Mercedes deny that out laps are the only time it is used.
