Maybe more will pop up today on youtube or something.
    I know... I'm quoting my own stupidity. I watched the YouTube version, slowed it down to .25 speed and saw quite some opposite lock on the front wheels as he came around the curve. In the 6-7 second mark you can see it if you pause the video.

    It would be better for us to be a driver mishap than a failure on the car.

    If others do it and dont get penalised, then it is not illegal

    I liked the way Ferrari covered the underneath of Kimi's car while being recovered.

    Yes, very good. I was worried we would see images all over the internet after that... The boys had it covered...

    I liked very much that they got there quickly and covered the underside of the car. I think, with the heat sensors on to top side of the floor, and their eagerness to cover the bottom, there is definitely some trickery going on there. I think the floor Played an especially important role within the SF70H design.

    Maybe this is finally the 'super' floor Rory has been promising us for the past few years.

    Read somewhere that they are running plumbing (for engine heat management) through the floor.

    From the SF70H thread, quoting an Autosport write-up:

    "Ferrari cooling system

    One of the more interesting - but simple - solutions on the Ferrari is this area of the floor with the temperature stickers on it.

    Basically, cooling fluids have to be moved around the car - from the engine to the radiators, for instance, or from from the gearbox to a cooler buried somewhere under the bodywork. It looks like Ferrari has embedded the necessary pipework in the underfloor.

    So instead of normal pipework, through which the internal fluid might pick up heat as it passes around the engine bay, this solution will offer a bit of cooling because of the airflow passing across the floor's upper and lower surfaces. This, in turn, will potentially allow Ferrari to run a smaller cooler."

    I have good feeling about this year's car even when Kimi was not running today, i was still calm. The car look different from all other cars and I think the great work between Simone Resta and David Sanchez on this car shows how intelligent both are. For me, no matter the outcome of the championship this year I will still be happy because of the innovations I am seeing on Ferrari SF70H something that has been missing from Ferrari for few years now.

    I just saw the onboard of Bottas' fastest lap and the Mercedes looks very, very compliant. I counted one correction he had to make over the entire lap.

    I would like to see an onboard from our car to compare because people at the track always reporting Merc and us are very close to each other (planted)

    I guess Vet had a minor incident, S2 took him almost a minute and back in the pit the front tyres show a major flat spot

    Hmmm.......Vettel starts his run on soft tyres, does 5 laps.

    Now comes out with the medium tyres. Is there anything to be concerned about that they're not using the SS AND US tyres ?? * Just saying

    I want to be optimistic and guess that we just don't want to show our strength.


    Disappointing; 2009 to 2016...

    With you SinanOzerS, but we will have to wait until the end of the day to know more, since it is Vettels last day they will have to send him out on SS/US today.

    EDIT: BTW, Vet said that they have very, very much work to do last week. Maybe Vet is completing Rai's program hence the low running yesterday and we start exploring more performance after lunch break? Just a thought.

    read somewhere...

    Ex- Formula 1 driver and a triple-time F1 World Drivers’ Champion Niki Lauda has joined fellow Mercedes stablemate Lewis Hamilton in declaring Ferrari the early favourite for 2017.

    Before Kimi Raikkonen crashed the new red car on Wednesday, Mercedes team chairman and F1 legend Niki Lauda watched it from the side of the track in Barcelona.

    “The Ferrari looks the fastest,” he told Auto Motor und Sport. “It is like on rails.

    “Our Mercedes is a little tighter in the corners. Ferrari is at the top of my list,” Lauda insisted.

    As for Red Bull, Lauda agreed that the energy drink-owned team is yet to truly impress.

    “So far, they are not the big surprise,” said the Austrian.
