    Really nervous for this crucial race for us, Mad Max and weather probably won't help, but all we can do is hope for the best in every sense and for Kimi to play his part. Forza Ferrari e buon coraggio, ragazzi!

    just looking at the hourly forecast. Should start clearing now, but thunder early evening. No rain though.

    Well, less than 50% chance of rain is prediction.

    Giovanazzi might have done a better job, the fact of the matter is Mercs were over 0.5 secs off pole so we can ignore them. being 0.4 seconds behind your team mate who happens to be on pole is not good which allowed the RB's to sneak in.

    The track will be green 'Red Bull' on Friday did show some good pace on a fresh track but that was when Ferrari were lost with the set up.

    was never "lost with setup" they start at a base setting and work from there. Usually depending on practice programmes determines the starting base set-ups.

    Sorry, I meant to say Ferrari went in the wrong direction with the set up, come quali and they pulled t back thanks to the hard work of the team and GIO and Lecrec in the simulator

    Damn this rain has me stressed! Someone said earlier, we just needed a good, boring race today and now this!

    It will be an exciting race by the sounds of it, which is good I guess! But I am uncertain of our wet weather performance. I just REALLY want to see Lewis languish down there in 5th. This is exactly what we need. Fingers crossed the team can bring it home to rub in his and RB's faces.

    With Grosjean, I think if there was any chance of a Ferrari seat in the future he has talked himself out of it over the past 2 seasons worth of radio rants.

    The only way the weather can play into our hands in if we have a safety car start, they should stop Mad Max taking a lunge into turn 1 from a normal start.

    but like in china, they have to still line up on the grid once safety car peels away

    The brush with the wall in Q3 looked very light, Seb showed the damage of his rim when Will Buxton nterviewed him post quali.

    Abu Dhabi should suit us, don't forget some of the upcoming tracks are 'Vettel tracks' - Suzuka, Abu Dhabi. Also we still have the 'joker' which is our last engine to play.

    The one thing I'd be interesting to see from a neutral perspective is if Lewis can perform strongly in wet weather despite clearly not having the car under him on this circuit... if he suffers in the wet it would be similar to Ferrari in Monza due to poor setup. If he steams through the field though then you'd have to just give it to him... pure talent.

    Either way, if it's wet I'm hopeful that our Setup will serve us well regardless.... but I am definitely worried! I have a bet to win! Forza Ferrari go Seb!
