    I just read that Vettel lifted the throttle in the 3 sector in the second session, is that true?

    yeah, that was in Barcelona............as far as i know i never heard of him doing here the same, but who knows
    ...the new SF70H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    From his on-board it's quite clear that he's not accelerating that hard after a couple of corners in the last sector.

    But if you watch Bottas's lap it's also evident that he's not really pulling the revs too. Shifting a tad early. So all in all both Mercedes and Ferrari weren't pushing.

    I don't know about you guys but right now I'm really depressed and worried. I'd dearly LOVE our cars to be on the pace of the Mercs, not sure I can bear another season of the Merc strolling away in the distance race after race. 4 years of that garbage is more than I can take.

    I just hope and hope and have all my fingers crossed and am wishing we have a very good race car. Go Seb and Kimi!

    This track has been the one where Merc have on average held the biggest laptime gap over rivals on average since 2014. Ferrari gap to Merc since 2014 is 14 = 1.6secs, 15 = 1.4secs, 16 = 0.9secs. If they can hold to 0.5 or better this year it is a big improvement for the 4th consecutive year in qualifying at this track. The previous post showing ideal lap times was really interesting though, keeps me happy at least until 10 hours time when the truth on quali pace at this track will be out.

    In terms of engine performance, Ferrari appear to have made a big step forward. Sainz Jr and Grosjean put some good laps in too. I just get a positive vibe from Ferrari this year compared to previous years. The car looks great, drivers seem confident... Whether we are quicker than Mercedes remains to be seen but I'm very confident we are a lot closer

    Based on the statements from Vettel, Raikkonen and MA, they all didn't sound positive at all after practice sessions.

    I think for anyone disappointed by our FP1/2 form, remember the following:

    We were P2 and P4 with self proclaimed balance issues.
    In 2016, we were all complaining when we were down in P5/6 when we had balance issues.

    Clearly we've improved. Just because we aren't dominating Mercedes doesn't mean we haven't done an amazing job. Remember - no one has been able to achieve that over the last 3 years! Not even the mighty Adrian Newey.

    I'm proud of the team. It's been a solid effort and a solid performance so far this weekend. Looking forward to whatever else is in store!

    Bring on FP3/quali

    The lack of live timing on the screen is frustrating, just a countdown of how many minutes left

    I agree! Is this a Liberty Media thing or am I just over thinking it? I'm all for them wanting to spice everything up, but get the basics right! Of course we want to see the times/leaderboard. C'mon!
