    Yeah but we gave the new engine to HAAS for this race. Maybe that covers us too :)

    Merc are favourites for the win but I'm willing to bet we can take 2nd and 3rd, Bottas is looking weak here.
    (and Skyf1 STILL crying over Hamilton giving Bottas his place back at Hungary.. lol)

    Meaning that we broke the agreement in a way as well, haha. However, Merc still has the advantage because they implemented the new engine on their team.

    No haas using Ferrari Silverstone spec engine, which they got it now. This is confirmed by paddock talk karun.

    im waiting to see the differences in qualy. If less than .2 im confident that with our new engine we may catch them up in engine power too

    Ah well, it is what it is. Merc are feeling the pressure hence why they had gearbox issues a few races ago by going over the limit. Hopefully they get a taste of their own medicine with their engine blowing by fast tracking it.

    Ferrari bringing their engine later might be a disadvantage on the oil burning, positive is it will have more developement time meaning it should also be more reliable. Also less mileage then the Merc engines

    Burning more oil has negatives. For starters it is worse for the engine in that it will degrade faster. And the risk of failure increases with a slightly more degraded engine. To me it seems like a slightly desperate move by Merc. I think our "scoreboard" pressure might be effecting them.
    Also burning more oil won't help with temp management.

    The time gap between Mercs and Ferrari in qualifying will determine whether bringing in upgraded engine earlier is a better decision. Not much can be taken for them Mercs not turning up the engines yet.

    they sandbag a lot, although bottas might be a lil closer if he continues to have grip issues

    We don't need Mark Hughes to say Merc got engine modes...

    Vibrations for Kimi..
