    Our guys do the same every race.Baku, we had the race pace to stay with Lewis, and we will be again close this weekend.

    After the dire year last year, some people still not happy. Merc have not, so far, out developed us, quali pace, they may have slight edge, track depending. Race pace, we always there.

    A GOOD DAY AT THE OFFICE

    Seb (2nd) and Kimi (6th) gear up for Spielberg: “We’ve made some improvements”

    Spielberg, July 7 – A short burst of rain between P1 and P2 did not prevent Scuderia Ferrari drivers from going through their planned programme, as the afternoon session stayed dry throughout. Sebastian ended up P2 and Kimi P6 in a session where familiarisation was more crucial than lap times.

    “Today we did a lot of laps and learnt a lot about the car,” commented Seb. “We had a good feel with it and that is what we need. So, we’ll see what we can do tomorrow. We understood the problems we had in Baku, but here it’s completely different. The weather and the asphalt temperature are not the same as they were there. Today it is still difficult to judge, but the car is very good and we made some improvements. We proceed step by step; tomorrow we’ll have another free practice session and then we’ll see”.

    Kimi had a slightly more troublesome day, but in the end he was not worried about the remainder of the weekend: “It was a very normal day, trying different solutions and seeing how they went. We struggled a bit with some things, but we know what is going on and we should be able to fix it. It was one of those Fridays, not great and not bad either. Obviously it could have been a bit better and straightforward, but it’s only the first day of practice. I don’t think it will be very difficult with tires as long as we do the normal things; it’s a very similar story as any other race. Now we have to go through everything and improve for tomorrow”.

    Regardless of Ferrari's performances, 2014-2016 is the worst era of F1, just after golden period of 2006-2012 and finally we have a season worth watching this year :)

    Now that Ham will face a 5 grid penalty, Seb must make sure to finish at least P2.

    whatever happened to actually WIN the race??? cause that is every drivers' goal going into the weekend

    so let's hope we take the win tomorrow.....we are THAT GOOD this year compared to last year that we can actually FIGHT for wins at every race

    Forza Ferrari
    ...the new SF70H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    I think what he mean is in quali, not in the race. Nobody in this forum wants Ferrari drivers in the second or third step of podium.

    Just hope Kimi can find some speed to keep Hamilton behind in the race. Good opportunity to close the wcc points deficit.

    The amount of laps done by both drivers on SS is to understand n get more data on it. So that they can go with perfect set up, right warm up procedure n balance. This is what was lacking in Baku, they couldn't do proper lap hence they didn't find right balance for quali, warm issues etc.
    If we fine tune little bit n get more from our car then vet will challenge for pole.

    His is a golden opportunity to extend our points lead in the championship. Ferrari must make hay while the sun shines. If Seb doesn't win this race (or come second to Kimi or Bottas) I will be extremely disappointed.

    If Kimi is behind Seb, he must slow Hamilton as much as possible. Payback for Bottas in Barcelona.

    I'm very excited and encouraged. I hope it all plays out as we hope... starting with a flawless qualifying.

    Yeah payback time.
    But this payback should be only if Kimi way behind bottas n vet.
    If on good merit Kimi is 2nd right behind vet. Ferrari should not risk his position. As we know WCC is also a top priority.

    Bottas n mercs will go all out n attack for P1 or P2 atleast.
    So as to stay ahead of vet. So that bottas can block him for ham. Or bottas can take victory.

    Kimi got new gear box with no penalty, as he didn't finish race in Baku.

    Realistically i dont think Vettel will beable to take P1 or P2

    so if i does manage to get P3, he HAS to beable to pass bottas early in the race or else he will block Seb until Hamilton does pitstop strategy to get ahead

    Hamilton may have a grid penalty but we shouldn't get too excited, there's always the risk of a first lap incident and the weather may interfere, I'm totally against making fun of misfortune, but of course it should help us, for which I'm grateful, let's make the most of it!

    Agreed,

    to me Hamilton winning is very much still highly on the cards, especially the way bottas takes out ferrari's and plays team games

    Whilst i think Vettel is way better a driver than Bottas, i just dont think he can make up the gap mercs have in Quali over Ferrari, esecially if Ferrari were oil burning before just to catch up to them

    unless I'm mistaken Ham will start from row 3 at best due to his penalty.
