    It’s really weird seeing a HAAS car driving around with it’s four wheels with body parts. The shape of HAAS we know is with smashed broken body work & broken suspensions & wheels leaning on barriers. I couldn’t name a race where a HAAS drove over a finish line.

    04:10 - "wobbly floor and the sticky uppy bits..." For a tech talk, that doesn't fill me confidence that you know what you're talking about. Or maybe you are just talking down for your intended audience.

    I like this video but I think it would be a lot better if he also explained what specifically the teams are trying to achieve with these changes, for example what aerodynamic effects are at work how exactly the changes will affect this. I think if you already go to this level of detail you should also explain how it works not only that the parts have a different shape. Just a suggestion.
