Lewis Hamilton on Friday welcomed the FIA’s efforts to overcome “porpoising” on health and safety areas and said any action taken was unlikely to affect the grid for the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday. Seven-time commentators are behind the world champion and current director Max Verstappen said he opposes the introduction of any mid-season rules changes. The President of the International Motoring Federation (FIA) said on Thursday that he will take steps to hit the phenomenon that has left many drivers suffering severe back pain during this time.
Mercedes Hamilton says it suffered up to 6G in vertical forces in its car during last Sunday’s race in Azerbaijan, making it difficult to race and it was difficult to get out of the car then .
The FIA plans to closely monitor vertical impacts during Friday training sessions before introducing new safety rules on vehicle planning.
Hamilton said he was pleased to see the FIA taking action to protect drivers as a matter of course.
“It’s always interesting to see people’s views and opinions in different light,” he told reporters.
“I think safety is the most important thing. And I think at least one driver in every group has talked about it.”
It incorporates Mercedes trying many tests to solve their work problems.
“You will see today, for example, something terrible,” he explained.
“If it doesn’t work, of course it’s very slow because it’s less power-down.
“But that’s my role and I take that responsibility seriously – and while, yes, not good on some weekends, it always sets us back because we missed a moment or two, that’s fine, because eventually we will arrive there and I I am proud to be a part of that process.
“I would like to think I am the best team-mate I have ever been – to George, but to all the engineers and everyone working in the industry.”
George Russell’s colleague said he thought “the vertical loads far beyond what you expected were safe to deal with.”
Aston Martin’s local Lance Stroll said: “It’s very bad and both porpoising and hard are things the FIA needs to address because it is not sustainable.”
Four-time champion Sebastian Vettel, his teammate, said: “It is not possible for us drivers to be injured, short or long, or possibly for the rest of our lives.
“Every sport to the extent unhealthy, but it can’t continue for another four or five years as this is good that the FIA is looking into it.”
