    FIA should only allow a car to qualify on 3 tires. It's too easy on 4, not real racing!

    Fernando can drive a car on two tyres 5 or 6 tenths quicker than anyone else.

    Schumy at Spa after hitting Coulthard. Drove car to pits with only 3 wheels.

    But funny how the FIA is so adamant now about closing oil burning loopholes once Ferrari's engine is a match for Mercs. Wonder why there was no issue in 2014, 2015, 2016.

    Instead of clamping down on oil burning during qualifying they should concentrate more on coming up with solutions how the SC/VSC can affect the race outcome as little as possible. Banning tyres changes during SC/VSC would be a good start. It should only be allowed if a driver has a puncture. Cruising behind the SC with worn tyres isn't dangerous. The driver can pit once the SC is gone.

    Waiting to change tires during SC is a valid strategy and has been used for ever, it’s only luck. The problem here is that we had a justified SC or VsC nearly every race of this season; but probably will not be like that for the rest of the season.

    I agree and that's probably the only thing F1 can adopt from NASCRAP. They don't let anyone pit under an SC immediately. They wait till everyone does a full lap or 2....then everyone pits at the same time.

    I think all teams have some trick so it will affect all teams. I don't see us being affected too much, but we'll wait and see.

    Really NASCAR are not parade races sometimes, they are full of luck so they don’t need to mix more

    I again hope that you are wrong. If nothing is changed in our car in Spain and others bringing lots of updates is not going to bode well..

    100% thats my fear too, sleeping in the development race, but so far ferrari have done well. if they can continue in spain then that bodes well for the rest of the year. if they got nothing big and or bring nothing or they have to change something according this oil ban thing then that's another promising start wasted like last year

    We are bringing small updates on every race now, I think we will do the same in Barca. Small updates are better than one or to big one, why? Because you need at least 2-3 races to find the right setup and optimise the car. I am confident we will stay very fast. :)

    Mercs and RB still accusing ferrari of cheating, would be depressing to see if any of these accusations are true, especially the oil burning one since that hurt ferrari a lot last year.

    It follows rumours the 2018 Ferrari engine, which smokes excessively when started up, may have taken a big step forward thanks to clever trickery in the area of oil
    The FIA examined the Ferrari in China and looked at drawings of the entire oil system," Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reports.

    It was found to be legal. But that's not all.
    First, Auto Motor und Sport says Red Bull is alleging that the shape of Ferrari's 2018 rear view mirrors does not comply with the regulations.

    And after Baku, it emerged that Mercedes has doubts about the clever design of Ferrari's 2018 battery cells, which may produce more than the allowed 4 megajoules.
    One possibility is that former Ferrari engine boss Lorenzo Sassi, who has been working for Mercedes since April, has been talking," Schmidt added.

    RB promising a lot of updates for spain
    "We're getting numerous improvements to the car for Spain so I'm assuming we'll be very competitive there," he said.

    [AMuS] Mercedes are hoping for their aero update in Spain and their new engine specification that will come in Canada
    ,I'm trying to find anything about ferrari but nothing yet, lets hope its secret and they do bring lots of things or else rb and mercs are going to make it 2016 again

    Cmon stop with the negativity, can you please show more optimist and fate in our team. We have the fastest car mate, you dont lose that in 14 days. This year it is a whole new story, we have an engine that can match or is even better than Mercedes, that is crucial, as we can defend now in the race.

    FIA pretty much jokers. Changing rules in mid season, investigating one particular team every race, Changing tyre compounds..!!
    Where are these jokers when mercs dominating 2014-16????

    RB crybabies all the time focus their things on Ferrari only.

    And former Ferrari employees who r engaged now to mercs, passing all the information. Huhhh wt all we gonna hear in the next races

    Yes I know it's been around for years and years. But you have to admit the SC lottery is something that could be avoided rather easily. At least the main aspect of it, the tyres. When they came up with the VSC a few seasons ago they could have made an overhaul of the entire factor. Today it's still not clear what warrants a SC over VSC and vice versa and where the red line is. And if no one really knows that then who knows when to use the red flag?
