    Were ifs" and "buts" candy and nuts, we'd all have a merry Christmas. Do not hope for a win, Ham's got the pace. Unless there's a mechanical problem the best we can do is a 2nd place.

    Tomorrow will be hotter which means more tire degradation. Lewis said their tires overheated in Malaysia because it was hot. So, let's see what tomorrow brings. I think we'll be pretty powerful in race trim so Seb might win. If Seb wins tomorrow and Lewis second, we'll wait for Lewis to DNF in the upcoming 4 races.

    Maybe we couldn't ramp up the engine as much as Merc because the team is afraid of reliability issues again? It might be the case.

    sorry, had a female companion over. She knows how I feel about F1 but I could not turn her down this time.

    this is just like silverstone, very slow compared to mercs, Bottas gearbox grid penalty, Hamilton untouchable , new engine for ferrari that doesnt show much performance gain

    Ferrari initially planned engine 4th spec for this race rather than Malaysia.
    I wonder what made them to choose this track, when they don't have much power

    Im starting to think it's down to track temp.
    Malaysia track was hot then Ferrari were fast. Under cooler conditions mercs fast.

    4 tenths away from Merc with the new spec engine & aero updates. No good enough.

    Yap, just like Silverstone, this kind of tracks with fast corners doesn't suit us at all. Let's wait for race though, we might surprise in race trim.

    maybe a pattern which might give us hope, albeit a strange one:

    we know Seb has won 4 races this season, but only once starting from pole, which was Hungary. In Bahrain he started 3rd on the grid

    Well, the only instance Vettel has been unlucky with his car was in qualifying in Malaysia and even then he recovered to 4th in the race. So you could say he was lucky it happened during qualifying and not in the race. Hamilton has also had bad luck with the headrest in Baku and gearbox change in Austria so I think it's bias that's clouding people's judgements.

    as this circuit is similar to Silverstone, let's hope no tyre issues this time

    Yeah, Seb made one huge mistake while Lewis didn't. So if it wasn't for Singapore, he would've been knee deep in title fight now.

    2018 Needs to be nearly perfect starting from the get-go all the way through the season.....Seb or Kimi(sigh) P1 or P2....always ahead of the Mercs. Maybe Redbull will play a part in it on the track....and in Seb or Kimi's head with regards to Max.

    Look at the first two corners ! Ham can take much more speed into it.

    We had Vmax in all sectors AND top speed. Should perhaps put a bit more wing for S1 where we lost 3 tenths.

    Yes, if Ham wins then it does not matter where Seb is, it's over and finished with.
    I'm just hoping for a Ham DNF, he's WELL overdue one by now.
    Common doesn't mean "Come on"; "Should have" not "Should of" ;)
