    Indeed, since Barcelona wintertest 2017, their voice changed ... and there is nothing to cure this. Maybe a lack of oil: need at least 1,2 l :)

    Sky are obsessed with Ferrari and team orders

    croft doesn't like team orders full stop he says, except when they benefit hamilton he left out.

    Saying we have the option of a new spec engine with the 900cc oil limit or the older spec which doesn't have the new limit.

    they might be running with alittle extra wing for the back side of the track knowing there not going to beat them in a straight line.might even give them better tire life because there wont be any tire scrubbing in the tight right handers

    not bad for FP2, at least we're looking competitive
    i'm not saying we're gonna get POLE here due to 1. running an older engine and 2. Mercedes seem to have better straight line speed.

    but at least if we're NOT gonna win this race will be damage limitation for us until we get our "steel piston engine" as well as tracks that will suit us better then tne Mercs coming up

    so all in all is looking good for us in the second part of the season

    I think the safety car had a lot to do with it also as Ferrari could not exploit the undercut. Regardless, Monza is a different track and we should not assume anything.
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...

    yeah, true that....but at least we put up a good fight
    and had Seb not been followeing Lewise SO CLOSE at the restart after the safety car went in, he may have had a chance to get a better tow and could have passed him for the win...

    but i know, could have, would have, should have

    Is it me or is "the race" up at the front will be somewhat boring?

    Looks to me with all the grid penalites i.e. Redbull, Farce() India, Williams, and Mclaren....that pack should prove more interesting than the front?

    My main worry is that if we can't get pole or one car on the front row, the first chicane could be a minefield, and if the two Mercs get away well, we may not have the speed to challenge them on the straights. Seems that FP2 was an improvement, though, so we'll not get too pessimistic yet, the weather may play a part too. Nervous times, for sure but Forza Ferrari as always.

    Potential problem could be Force India.
    With RBR having penalties they have a good chance at 3th row. So if Mercs are faster than us in qualy, they start behind us and things can get messy into turn 1, also they have good straight line speed..

    There was a rain on the track roughly 2 hours ago when I left. There is a good chance of more rain coming.

    Both seb & Kimi didn't feel confident about the car. They stated there is more to come interms of pace.

    Hopefully quali is damp. It should suit Ferrari's stronger chassis/aero and hamper merc which is all about power.... we'll see!

    Hopefully, whatever condition it turns out to be, will be more helpful to Ferrari to overcome Merc engine advantage

    I don't think FP3 will go ahead. The rain only looks like it's getting heavier.
