    They still have some extra power for qualifying. But they're not much faster .

    I'm hoping for race pace, but rain could be an issue.

    Vettel fastest S1
    Hamilton S2
    Bottas S3
    Kimi so close in 2 earlier sectors but lose 0.3 s from Bottas

    Did Ferrari get any race simulation data at all during p3? were they close to Mercedes?

    should be interesting tomorrow, we will find out between vet and ham who is the better driver under the wet condition. ham is usually good IF NOT pressured.

    Great result! Under 2 tenths of a second away on a track that everyone speculated would not suit our car. And - even closer than Australia. Things are moving in the right direction, even for Kimi despite being less spectacular than the top 3.

    I too have a crazy feeling that we'll pip them for the win tomorrow. But you really never know. A clean turn 1, we learned last year, will be key.

    Ham, Seb and Bottas are all good in wet conditions, but Max is absolutely best when wet, he can even win tomorrow if it is horrible conditions.

    Ver starts way down, by the time he gets forward the top guys are long gone if no safety car issues. Ricciardo to watch for as RBR are good at handling

    How can u judge max skills with one wet race.?? Ofcourse he drove superb in Brazil, but SC played a vital role & tyres. When everyone was on old set of wet tyres.

    Alonso, button, vettel, Hamilton, Ric best of the best.

    Kimi, massa very tentative in wet conditions.

    a lot of possibilities tomorrow, it's important to jump ahead of ham to get a clear path and avoid the possibility of collision in turn 1.

    If seb can get good start, he can control the pace. If it's dry he will cruise & build a gap. If it's dry, then he will be looking to manage the pace, because of SC.

    Ferrari is very quick at twisty kind of circuits. That's what ham said in interview " in some areas Ferrari are quick n other areas mercs are quick. So it's a battle of different kind of tracks, but definetly we would take pole positions in few races this year.

    I wouldn't expect the same performance from RB in the wet compared to last year. Atleast for now.

    yep.....they look to be down on power and possibly chassis overall....they definitely look different now than last year.

    Yeah..Bahrain will be kind of similar with Shanghai..3 full straight kind of Mercedes forte but temperature will be different but who knows..Tomorrow will be different..Hopefully Vettel can storm ahead before turn 1 and importantly avoid collision like last year

    Oz and China are front limited tracks (suit Merc better), Bahrain is rear limited (Suit us better)

    The fact we are so close to Merc in quali the past 2 races shown we have taken a massive step in quali, we just need to find a few more tenths.
