Lewis Hamilton has conceded to amusement over the reasons outlined for the abolition of Formula 1's 'party mode' that comes into force from this weekend's Italian Grand Prix.
A technical directive has been issued to all teams who are no longer able to increase power throughout qualifying, with the rule now that the output from the power unit must remain constant throughout Saturday and Sunday.
Mercedes has previously made clear that while there may be some effect over one lap, the ban will help them during a race.
Hamilton has been left smiling by the conflicting stories that have emerged as to why the power boost has been outlawed.
"I find it kind of amusing that the FIA said that it was to manage everyone's usage of the engine, or something like that, and then Red Bull came and said 'We were the ones pushing for it', so there are completely different reasons why they did it," chuckled the six-time F1 champion.
Well, the little pansies at red bull have exposed themselves, and got their wishes... All these insecure self centered losers that can't stand the success of Lewis should hang their heads in shame. But that's wishful thinking as such persons don't have any shame.... SMH
Same licks for that reckless cheat called Verstappen
