    well done Kimi front row start better than Seb today
    Personally i don't think merc is 0.6 ahead, it seems Seb could not quite find the best setup.

    Difference to SS to US isn’t much.
    Ferrari should have long stint on US, that will negate tyre advantage for RB.

    Its not a threat. Alot people had enough, people run the forum had enough.

    All you saying? we won last year, nearly won WDC last apart from few Seb mistakes. So before you and the usual suspects shoot the team down before the race, see how the year goes before claiming its all over.

    P2/3, but not a very positive outcome. It could easily have been P4/5 (not the good type) if Bottas hadn't screwed up and Verstappen made that mistake. We'll see tomorrow, but they were already behind Mercedes and also seem to have fallen behind Red Bull.

    Happy with todays result, we need some races to extract the max from the our brand new car, Bahrain should suit out long-wheel based car more. Maybe we can use two haas cars as a dummy, so when Hamilton pits they stay out, and hold him behind for 2-3 lapes, and then Ferrari makes an overcut and lead the GP. Yeah a dream scenario, but i will never stop believing.
    Forza.

    But this year car lack grip atleast in the hands of vettel, where it’s opposite for Kimi. Ferrari needs to lot of work.
    I think it’s all down to set-up. There is potential in this year’s car.
    any quotes from team yet? im guessing they going to say race is tomorrow the usual? Kimi might be the guy in 2018 for ferrari

    Well you can actually find some positives, if we'll talk about Vet. He starts from the clean side, so he could have a great bite to the asphalt and with a tow from Kimi and Ham, it could be an advantage into the first two straights.

    Vettel too made a mistake T13. Else p2 was his to grab.

    bye then, not just the doom and gloom, as soon as someone says we seem ok could win races they get slammed saying get real man we suck blah blah.

    So, if you want to go and start up and pay for your own forum, bye bye.

    looks like the overall package hasn't taken the steps rb and mercs have made, we just switched to the long wheelbase to be similar to mercs so i think we might be a year behind all over again in understanding the car. Im sure we will improve and be level with RB before half season ( atleast im hoping :) )

    Don’t worry just look at the positive side, vet struggling over the weekend.
    Else it would have been closer by taking Kimi-vet difference factor over couple of years.

    And Mercedes won the championship. My point is you don't win championships by qualifying 6 tenths behind your main rival.

    I’m not saying the season is over, I’m just saying that at the first race over a hard working winter, the Merc is still ahead...but all that may change in our favour during the season.....we’ll see
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    I dont think this is a true picture of where we are I think when we get to a proper track we will be
    further in front of Redbull and hopefully closer to Merc,as for tomorrow I have a feeling Merc will chew its tyres to bits after afew laps

    I like your idea about using Haas.. I mean Grosjean would have no trouble being the dummy

    You mean we lost the championship? We shot ourselves in the foot with the start crash and reliability issues, we could have won it otherwise, but that's how it goes. And, you can't win or lose a championship in the first race of the season and especially not in qualifying.

    hehe yeah kinda like mexico but that was a super long straight, i hope they dont have party rapper mode in race too or we will never overtake mercs. If a safety car or something can help us somehow that might be the best chance to challenge rb and mercs this year

    maybe ferrari made the car for kimi's driving style? O_O and seb cant get the handle on it. i hope not. If kimi shows ruthlessness and hunger to beat rapper boy then maybe its fine :) but i hope seb can find some balance

    Well if you think we are gonna championship this year then fine, I have no problem whatsoever. We all want the same thing.

    But unfortunately our main rival currently is now Red Bull not Mercedes.

    I'll always believe that, and I don't know how you concluded that our main rival is Red Bull from just one qualifying session? We'll need 2-3 races to see the real order.

    and considering the REDBull's rate of in season car development...our main rivals will soon be haas..

    It's a discussion. People are discussing. People are different. People here are Ferrari fans. Ferrari fans are passionate. People here are hungry for success. It's just the way it is and if anyone has problem with it, well... that's sad. We are all one family here in a way and we have our problems, our days, our differences, but family members should understand each other. Here, all I see is that if someone is happy, everything is fine, but suddenly, if anyone is sad, angry, uses words before brain, then there's fire. Let them vent their frustration, it is not harmfull at all, it's just a text. And by having all different opinions in one place, talking about it, that's... discussion... a forum.

    I know, that probably the forum is not as popular, as it used to be, there is less people, the veterans are not there anymore and so on... But it's not because of the anger going on here sometimes, believe me. It's because the F1 is not what it used to be, it's because the Ferrari is not, what it used to be. Just wait... wait, until one big succes of our team, wait, till we'll win the title, the forum will come alive for coming seasons. With success, comes reward. It's always like that. The bad thing is, that for Ferrari only success is the championship as SM keeps repeating but then not delivering 100%. But it will come one day.... Well all that, if the F1 will not die until it happens. The changes they keep aplying are making the sport less atractive by the day.... I don't know, why I felt the need to write this... I guess I care about this forum
