    Good opening day for Ferrari, by all accounts the car looks good on track.

    And McLaren
    Forza Ferrari

    Last year Mercedes never went to the top of the sheet for the first week of testing. And we used Ultrasofts to get to the top, this year is different.

    That 3 - 5 sec improvement is compared to 2015 cars IIRC. Although nothing says it can't be a bigger margin!

    Both Kimi and Seb will be able to speak to press after day 2 of testing, tomorrow. With that, they have got 2 solid days under the belt to comment on.

    Anyone has the article "winners and losers from testing day one" from Autosport. It might be an interesting read.

    So far so good, ladies and gents. It seems wider tyres, among other things, suit our car better

    Ted "crazy head" Kravitz, is a complete jack ass.
    He thinks he knows so much about aerodynamics. Talking about all other teams have a better aerodynamics than Ferrari.
    Does he not realized that adding pieces is not real aerodynamics, aerodynamics basics comes from the actual basic chassis shape. Ask him to take a brick wall and add little carbon pieces and other "bells and whistles" and make it good aerodynamics!!! Then he can ring his own bell and blow his own whistle.

    Wiliams has 2 separate (double) T-Wings and Merc showed shark-fin with hole at the top - are that would be legal things? Sure that Toto would say that it is only for cooling purposes but what if they modificate it and create short passive f-duct?

    PS.Here is an interesting article about shark fins.https://drivetribe.com/p/fFRt-VZaRTG...TQ2CvfJH8gowKA

    Did he say that all others were better?
    Based on what?

    Really great day indeed! I'm well chuffed about it.
    (Mercs still look scary as hell but we look good too!)
    as for McLaren, well I know a lot on here hate the team but I can't help but feel sorry for Alonso, he's simply too good to be spending the last seasons of his career driving such a piece of junk. :(

    The more I read commentary on F1, the more I feel it's just status-quo reporting. They report that Ferrari is under developed, as they've gone into this season with that expectation. The truth is, they don't know. It is frustrating to read that consistently though, when the complexity of our bargeboards/sidepods look to exceed at least SOME of our competitors. And sure, I think it's one thing to say our bargeboard is more basic than Mercedes from a side view, but when looking at the car from the top you can clearly see how intricate and detailed this area is on our car.

    Does that mean it's fast? I dunno! I'm no expert, but people like Ted Kravits don't know any better.

    I've always felt that the criticisms of SkyF1 were unjustified because I always enjoy the coverage from an entertainment perspective - but yesterday I scrolled back through their live feed to look at all the Ferrari pictures. There wasn't any!

    Wait I lied, there was one of an out of focus Ferrari following the Mercedes. I finally agree!

    Now here is an interesting article that I feared we could see coming due to the "design" of these new 2017 cars:

    Drivers heed first warning signs of F1 2017 overtaking fears:

    Mercedes still has huge grip. They get on the power so early, they power through the last part of the chicane. Vettel has a little lift, 0% throttle in the last part of the chicane, but Mercedes can get on the power maybe 30% throttle, then gradually but quickly increase the power to 100% throttle.
    Here is the link to the video. You can see it towards the last 1/2 of the video.

    Hey everyone, can anyone confirm if the new car is fitted with the fric-trick suspension that the merc and rebull has?
    I know ferrari has put in official complaints about it but not sure if that means they won't be fitting out on their car..
    Why try ban something that your intending to use as well?

    Because if they aren't going to develop their own fric system then I just can't see us being able to match it with the merc, isn't it worth around 0.5 second?

    Criticism unjustified? What are you talking about? Since Sky started covering F1 Ferrari haven't won anything. So I think, like everyone else, the have the right to call it as they see it. And if they think Ferrari is underachieving? Well,X guess what, so do Ferrari themselves.
