While porpoising or excessive bouncing was a hot topic during the first few races of the current season, it has become less prominent over the last few races. However, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff feels that the issue is far from resolved and he has now given his point of view to Motorsport Link to poll: https://www.youtube.com/post/UgkxCtsxLEMY-pEzKuxpCcLN5X3j2JZHQZUn 0:00 - Toto Wolff Warns Of “Brain Damage” For Drivers 1:11 - Fast Feed I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World: Toto Wolff Warns Of “Brain Damage” For Drivers Wolff started off by responding to suggestions that Mercedes have been involved in lobbying “There’s all this talk of lobbying in either direction, but I think fundamentally, what are we talking about?” He then spoke about the need for action “The FIA has commissioned medical work on the porpoising. The summary of the doctors is that frequency of 1-2Hz, sustained over a few minutes, can lead to brain damage” “We have 6-7Hz over several hours” “So the answer is very easy: the FIA needs to do something about it” Some of his rival team principals like Christian Horner and Mattia Binotto have pointed out that there has been no porpoising recently Wolff signed off by responding to that “The argument is we haven’t had any porpoising and bouncing in the last few races” “But it doesn’t count because Silverstone, Paul Ricard, and Austria aren’t exactly tracks that we bounce at anyway” Fast Feed Red Bull team principal Christian Horner explained that “any partnership would have to fit with the Red Bull philosophy, obviously” [Motorsport Week] “The DNA, the culture of who we are, how we go racing and what we’ve achieved” “It would be absolutely fundamental to any discussion of not changing that, you know. We’re successful for a reason” Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto revealed that they “are working on reliability, [they] are also managing it on Grand Prix weekends” [Motorsport] “There are certain changes for which there aren’t enough days and weeks to make them. So they will be definitively resolved next year” “But that does not mean that they will not already be managed this season” His driver Charles Leclerc stated that “until it’s mathematically over, then I still want to believe in it. This is what gives me the motivation” [BBC] ”I really feel like this first part of the season has been my strongest in F1” “The way I have worked and the way we have worked as a team has been the best I have ever done in F1” Mercedes reserve driver Nyck de Vries elaborated that “obviously everyone shares that dream and goal” [Total Motorsport] “I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to go to F1” For Alex Albon “it’s really exciting to be staying with Williams Racing for 2023” Is porpoising or bouncing still a noteworthy issue?
