Who actually believes Lewis Hamilton's B.S. about how slow his Mercedes is?

Qualifying results for the Spanish Grand Prix:
75.4 Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes
76.0 Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes
76.3 Sebastian Vettel, Ferrari
76.4 Max Verstappen, Red Bull / Honda
76.6 Charles Leclerc, Ferrari
76.7 Pierre Gasly, Red Bull / Honda
76.9 Romain Grosjean, Haas / Ferrari
76.9 Kevin Magnussen, Haas / Ferrari
77.2 Daniil Kvyat, Toro Rosso / Honda
77.3 Lando Norris, McLaren / Renault
77.4 Alexander Albon, Toro Rosso / Honda
77.6 Carlos Sainz, McLaren / Renault
77.3 Daniel Ricciardo, Renault - 3 spot penalty for backing into Kvyat at the last race
77.8 Kimi Raikkonen, Alfa Romeo / Ferrari
77.9 Sergio Perez, Racing Point / Mercedes
78.5 Lance Stroll, Racing Point / Mercedes
80.3 Robert Kubica, Williams / Mercedes (104.3% of Bottas' Q1 time)
78.7 Antonio Giovinazzi, Alfa Romeo / Ferrari - 5 spot penalty for new gearbox
79.1 George Russell, Williams / Mercedes (102.7% of Bottas' Q1 time) - 5 spot penalty for new gearbox
78.4 Nico Hulkenberg, Renault - pit lane start for replacing front wing with an older spec during qualifying

Although the two Williams cars are still dead last in every session on track, George Russell was only 0.786 seconds off of making Q2 - the closest that Williams has been to being out of the cellar all year. This is also the first race of the 2019 season that the woeful FW42 was actually 0.613 seconds faster than the awful FW41 from 2018.

Ferrari just can't help tripping over themselves. Twice in that race there should have been easy calls to let the other car through, both times it took them far too many laps to make that call, destroying the tyres of the car behind.

After five of twenty-one races, here is the average of each team's fastest lap as a percentage of the fastest lap each week:
100.074 Mercedes
100.530 Ferrari
100.894 Red Bull / Honda
101.661 Haas / Ferrari
101.888 McLaren / Renault
101.970 Toro Rosso / Honda
102.069 Alfa Romeo / Ferrari
102.084 Renault
102.198 Racing Point / Mercedes
104.540 Williams / Mercedes
The gap from #1 Mercedes to #2 Ferrari is larger than the gap from #4 Haas to #9 Racing Point. The gap from #9 Racing Point to #10 Williams is larger than the gap from #1 Mercedes to #9 Racing Point.
Zzzzzz.....

And Alonso gets bumped from Indy by the last qualifying run and 0.02 MPH over 4 laps.
Humans sleep soundly in their beds because rough cats stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

Someday, Alonso may regret the trail of burned bridges that he's left behind in his career.

Well, that didn't take long:

McLaren have parted company with the man who was employed to run their Indycar program.
Among the myriad problems that afflicted them was the fallout from a decision early in the programme to build their own steering wheel. These house electronic read-outs and several controls for the car, and most Indycar teams buy them in from British company Cosworth. When McLaren realised they had run out of time to do their own before starting testing, they ordered one from Cosworth, but when it arrived it did not have any gear-change paddles. When McLaren asked why, they were told they had not ordered them.

The Carlin spare car was in a paint shop 30 minutes from the track, more than a month after McLaren complained about the color, and it ultimately cost McLaren almost two full days of track time. The team looked foolish as other teams were able to move into backup cars in mere hours; James Hinchcliffe crashed in Saturday qualifying and was back on track in his spare that afternoon.

If you were afraid that the cost cap in 2021 will stunt your development efforts, wouldn't it make even more sense to throw resources at the 2021 design now, while there are unlimited funds and personnel allowed?

Given how many years Bob Fernley was with Force India and what they achieved during that time, I rather suspect he was the sacrificial goat for McLaren's Indy fiasco.
