    Ferrari looking good on US tyres.
    Mercs look good on S tyres.
    Quite surprising S tyres is preferred tyre.

    Interesting point to be noted, mercs struggle on US tyres.
    So they are afraid of it, doing much testing on S tyres. By looking at the temps n track, US tyres don't last long for them for sure. By the end of final sector their tyres go off.

    Quali Ferrari might have advantage, if it's dry.

    Will conclude little bit on this after fp2

    Shouldn't rain help Ferrari, considering we carry more DF than others ?

    Think Merc are hiding some pace using only the S. For sure US may not last long, but they will be a lot faster on them and wil probably get the pole, considering their engine tune also. Expecting Kimi to be a little faster than Seb here, like in the last 2 races, expecting Seb to be faster after monza

    I think we are pushing for hotter temperature rather than rain.

    exactly....i can ALOMOST guarantee it taht no one will be using the soft during the race....it will be US and SS

    these tires in general this year are so durable you can almost do the whole race in a set of SS.....LOL
    ...the new SF70H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Vettel makes many "mistakes" every friday. I think is part of is approach to find the limits but then is generally quite reliable when it counts (qualifying and race).

    He did the same also in Red Bull. Not something new.

    well they did say taht the LONG wheel base that the Merc has will be in their advantage.....but still it's still practice, maybe Ferrari are holding their cards closer and NOT reveal true pace until FP3 or quali....

    they are predicting rain soon, so teams need to get a push on, i think Mercs have done the most laps at the moment, either that or the tv guys show them more than other teams
