    14:04 "The rear is nowhere, it suddenly lets go completely," is Magnussen's further feedback on his Haas's troubles.

    Best example

    Pirelli has increased the air pressure of the rear tires by 2 PSI compared to the test runs in Barcelona. Although there were no problems with the test drives. We asked why the change had been made.

    Pirelli surprised the teams before GP Spain. After the Italian tire supplier in the first four races Moderate air pressure, he went in Barcelona the opposite way. At the front, the tires are pumped with 22.5 PSI, rear with 20.0 PSI. This is half a PSI more than during the test drives in the winter, at the rear still a proud 2 PSI.

    Pirelli explains the return to the policy of caution with the aerodynamics upgrades. Technician Mario Isola: "We got the new output data from the teams three weeks before the race. They are massively higher than before. Especially in the stern. We reacted to that. "


    Simulations in the laboratory in Milan
    Isola also says that this is not the last word spoken. "After the first training day, we will check the situation again. When everything is in the green range, we go back with the pressures. "These tests include not only the Pirelli technicians cutting up various tires and investigating possible damage.
    The second part of the analysis Takes place in the labs in Milan as Isola says: "We take a qualifying round from each car and a round with a lot of gasoline on board. Based on the data of wheel camber, velocities and the forces on the tires, it is simulated which tire pressure is necessary. We have certain formulas to do. "

    Transport damage to Pirelli
    The excitement around allegedly 78 disappeared Pirelli Tire is also elucidated. They have not disappeared. Pirelli found only four transport damages. The tires had touched during transport. "We exchanged the tire sets against new ones. They had to be delivered. That's why they were not in Barcelona until 4pm on Thursday. "
    Thanks Pirelli. This almost sounds like 2012 all over again.

    The car looks smooth. Are Ferrari just getting killed on power? Seb took T9 flat, not a lot of corrections through the corners... I don't get it.

    Remember pirelli increased minimum tyre pressures so the times will differ

    And the temperature makes a difference. It's too hot for the compound currently. This is why they're barely faster than the morning session despite the softer tyres.

    Kimi tops the top speed..And our s3 not so good..actually only Vettel lost most his time in S3 (~0.3-0.4 s)..Are we down on downforce? And Hulk 0.8 s behind Mercedes..Wow

    Didnt they say that new weight distribution system mercs have will clear up most of that tyre issues, i doubt Ferrari can bank on mercs tyre issues anymore, we need pure speed which is lacking
