    Yeah then in this case Daniel Ricciardo should be in contention not mad max.

    There seems to me to be a vendetta against Ferrari and their drivers by the media and certain other teams (Merc/RB), first it was the oil in fuel scenario and now questions over a flexible floor. Merc and RB have always excelled at finding loop-holes in the regs, as soon as Ferrari try to be innovative, they're all calling us cheats. Seb's silly move in Baku has opened a can of worms and I fear that Silverstone won't be very welcoming!

    Driving for Ferrari is one thing which is not the problem as you have stated and I agree with, its winning in a Ferrari thats all together different. Lets face it, we have had alot of

    talented drivers say within the last 10yrs; its the car whether you attribute it to performance, chassis, aero, RELIABILITY, team management or WHATEVER, its the people behind

    the car that need to deliver given the last 10yrs.

    I would like to think we are, let's wait for quali tomorrow which our rivals seem to turn it up a notch and see also if this "unplugging of the second oil reservior" hurts us.

    you might be right being that your closer and in that area; I have no clue how the Brits will recieve Seb. The press conference yesterday with Seb and Lewis was pathetic after

    both answered questions and kept a professional attitude between the both of them and the subject at hand. It was over between them a long time ago.....done!....move on!

    next question please.

    He won't equal Schumi on PP at his home turf. His fans will whine but at that time last year Vettel had like three gearbox penalties and two DNFs.

    It is confirmed, he used it, it's only a formality to stewards to penalise him. Interesting that Vettel and Raikkonen are using fixed gear ratios in Austria.

    You can change your gear ratios once every season. Red Bull did it in Baku, Ferrari is doing it this weekend.

    Vet will take him tomorrow. Ferrari needs to fine tune it's set-up overnight.

    Is there any benefit by doing so. I don't have much knowledge about.
    Only know how to use my car gears
    By looking at ur information provided RB did benefit with that in Baku.

    Now Kimi is the blocker
    First he needs to have perfect start. Then he can look hamster race.
    I feel hamster would run q2 with different tyre compound on softs may be. As penalty is inevitable.
    So that when everyone is on softs, his final stint would be on US or SS.

    You expect Kimi not to be over taken by 3 cars as per usual at the start??? J.k

    I hope he actually does play blocker, no doubt Bottas will do his best to take Vettel out

    @andrewbensonf1

    The problem with Hamilton's gearbox was not related to the Vettel incident in Baku, Mercedes have confirmed, for those speculating
