    Toto is an idiot and if it thinks we all still believe the utter hogwash he comes out with, he's sadly mistaken.
    "Toto Wolff predicts three-way fight for F1 title" lol.. sure man

    The first aerodynamic developments will be seen on the SF71-H directly in Australia.From these upgrades the Maranello engineers expect an improvement of about 0.1 - 0.2 seconds per lap.
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    Former F1 driver Alexander Wurz is saying that we are tight together with the Mercedes, and the RBR are lagging behind at least 0,3 s. I believe him, mark my words our car will suprise everyone already on friday. Cmon bring it on. Mercedes will have their tyre problems on the US,SS tyres, which will forced them to have at least 2 stops, Ferrari just one.

    we are ONLY speculating that the Merc will have SS adn US tire issues because we've seen how bad they looked in testing.....but that's it, it wsa testing....they've have two weeks to sort out those issues (i truly hope they did NOT), but mercedes team is NOT an amateur team, they have some bright people there....

    but let's hope this article is somewaht true and at least be REALLY close to mercedes

    so far it looks like Quali will be in the WET, so anything can happen there....but at least the friday practice will be dry and we can test our car and updates fully
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Australian GP: Melbourne gets third DRS zone for 2018 F1 opener.

    The new zone will begin on the exit of that Turn 11-12 complex, potentially allowing drivers to drag past rivals on the run to the tight right at Turn 13.

    The main reason for this extra zone is to help drivers get closer to the car in front heading to the original DRS detection point that follows before Turn 14, which leads into the final two corners.

    Lewis ready to unleash "party" mode in the W09. It's no longer called "quali" mode. Lewis can't wait to unleash these new qualifying laps. Hopefully the car self detonates.

    If such is the case, then it’s bore-fest season again just like 2014.

    I live in Melbourne and we've been in serious drought since late January with no rain of any significance. However, it looks like the arrival of the F1 circus to town, will burst the pimple by unleashing the rain in anger. Our city has set the longest run without rain, which will be a cruel blow for when the F1 cars hits our drenched track - I hope I'm wrong!

    Lol That will really be a party partying whole night

    But yeah if the best we got since last year is 10bhp and i've never seen these merc guys this cocky and have supposedly improved and peaked in every aspect than its going to be extremely boring this year, i really really hope not. Merc guys not even pretending to be humble at this point

    Lol.....the Merc guys must have been laughing their behinds OFF when they read about the article Ferrari revealed of their so called 10Hp gain for 2018......lol

    I know it’s not funny, but common this is Ferrari, we gotta do better then that

    I read somewhere that haircut allows him to wear a smaller helmet which with the introduction of the Halo, he doesn't need as much head protection and in turn improves the aero efficiency of the new halo and the amount of air being fed into the air scoop.
    This is the 'secret weapon' Ferrari have just let out of the bag that will give them a boost over Merc.

    I wonder if that cockiness maybe isn't genuine. When we had James Allen, he praised the SF16H, claiming that it was the culmination of over 1 million man hours and how much effort went into it and then once in season it was up and down and no one could really understand it. Maybe in reality they aren't very sure of where they stand. And this year Ferrari is very quiet, and maybe we are the ones that have done a better job and we want to down play it.
