    i was hoping to see some split strategy in fp3 because Mercs seem to have been gathering a lot of info on all 3 tyres during practice

    Canada GP Free practice & qualifying

    Merc have less US than ferrari
    Maybe they are planning to start in SS and then go to S one stop only.
    Better tire management in that configuration for them too

    Great pace from Ferrari - but being within 2 thousandths of a second from one another does at least suggest they are near the ceiling of performance from the car. It will be close with merc, hopefully we've still got plenty in reserve. Seb did do several laps to achieve his 1:30.0, but Kimi just did his after a single warm up lap.... still much to unfold.

    Hamilton didn't use DRS on his fastest lap apparently. This could be much closer than it looks.

    One of the best FP3 in a long time ago said Marc Gene. Everything they tried it worked well.

    LOL
    Merc sandbagging like crazy.
    12kph down to us.. That's not possible. Engine is turned down hugely. If they can do that S1 and S2 with the engine turned down like that. They will easy improve these sectors and huge improvement S3..
    I think Merc will have the advantage in qualy

    Time will tell. Ferrari have been able to find a bit more in Q3 this year compared to previous years. Will it be enough? We'll see.

    I believe it would be impossible to the time he did with an downgraded engine and without drs, that would be he would be 1.5-2sec. faster than us in quali

    Yes, but Merc tend to find more.
    I think they will have this one..
    Hopefully we can split them

    i think their engine will give them the benefit here, but im sure ferrari will pull some speed from somewhere, i think they will edge ferrari by maybe 0.3~.4 based on what the commentators said and the low low top speeds in the speedtraps. I hope it cools down and give some benefit towards ferrari
