Lewis Hamilton says porpoising injuries are unacceptable before Canadian GP

The seven-times champion counts it as one of his favourite meetings but this year, while a win appears as far off as ever, Hamilton is at least taking some pleasure from the FIA’s determination to eliminate the porpoising of the cars that has been identified as a potential long-term health risk. That is not surprising given that a driver in a potentially title-winning car would not welcome any variables changing. “Regardless of if it’s going to help us or work against us, these rule changes in the middle of the year I don’t think is correct,” Verstappen said. “I understand the safety part of it but if you raise your car you will have less issues.”. The problem was raised intently at the drivers’ briefing in Baku and Hamilton intimated that Verstappen may have simply been reiterating a Red Bull party line in public. “We have raised the ride height and we still have the bouncing,” Hamilton said.
