    Even that is enough for now, as mercs brought huge upgrade package more than RB & other teams.

    Vet struggling to find the rhythm. Once he sets up his game. Then he can be on pole. Because in general difference between kimi &vet is around .2-.4 in this season.
    Need to admit kimi did up his game from last race. I can see some intent in his driving flat out around the corners. It's good for team & WCC

    It's looking better, I hope to see Ferrari in mid 1.19 second at low temp during testing we were in the 1.19s on soft, so i expect bearing mechanical issues to have improved. Vettel said one thing that it is not how many updates you bring but how good the updates are.

    Currently changing Vettel's engine. It'll be tight as to whether or not they can get him out again for quali. This is a worry!

    Damn. We have the best garage crew in the world, but even for them this is a big ask with little time. Got everything crossed!

    Most probably it will be ready for qualy. Let's just hope this won't destroy Seb's setup.

    Ferrari have detected a hydraulic issue on Seb's car during FP3 but, considering there wasn't enough time to trace the origin of the leak, apparently they decided to replace the engine. It's team work now, as Kimi's mechanics are helping Seb's ones
    Don't know if they revert back to old ones or his third..
