The 2019 French Grand Prix is not one that will go down in the history books as a great race. Between the first half-lap and the final half-lap it was, to say the least, a bit of a non-event on a track that's about as interesting as driving across the Sahara Desert.
Mercedes locked out the front row for the sixth time this season and made it half-a-dozen one-two finishes. And I'm beginning to think that run of success owes something to a new tool it's given its drivers.
There was lots of talk during the Paul Ricard weekend about how Ferrari had discovered that its correlation between windtunnel/CFD and the track was not as expected. Team principal Mattia Binotto denied this - of course he would - but to have confidence in its development direction, any such problem would need to be addressed.
