    So vettel won with two mercedes at full steam behind him.
    With 40 laps old soft tyres.
    With fuel saving from the beginning(dixit toto)
    With huge improvements coming( china)
    We can say we are in better shape compared to last year ( this Is a fact, not GPS deduction from AMS)

    Where did he said that? Yeah I think it gonna be harder than in Bahrain, but all is possible. It will be again all about the tyres and finding that sweet spot with the setup. I hope for a dry friday, now its looking like the rain might hit the track for the entire friday. But weather can soon change. That long straight might play into our hands also, with our very low drag. S2 should be good for us also, it has that medium-fast corners in which we were quick in Bahrain also.

    Wow Shanghai with Baku both got the longest straight on the calendar, this will be the ultimate test for the Ferrari vs Mercedes engine comparing with each other.

    http://f1statblog.co.uk/2016/06/longest-straights-f1/

    US tyres will be the Q3 tyres remember. Will Mercedes again have problems with softer tyres (they had problems with SS in Bahrain)? Only time will tell.
    For me the Shaghai is a more tyre limited track than Bahrain, remember what happened in 2011,2013. We know that Bahrain is a rear limited track and China front limited. But still you need good traction out of slow corners, because if the car is slightly unbalanced and is sliding a little bit even the rears can get soon to overheathing phase. I expect a 2 stop race.

    Ferrari are best on the straights, that's what we have seen so far. As long as they are good with the tires in the cooler conditions compared to Merc they should be in good shape.

    Kimi said dduring the PC that the didn't know what happen to the mechanic, he didn't ask. So, yes, regardless of how much I like him, this was rude.

    Yes wasn't happy with this. He didn't even go over to see what happened.

    Looks like it. Maybe he made a promise to his brother not to reveal stuff because it goes against his brother's confidentiality agreement.

    So we didn't have a new floor, diffuser and bargeboards here in Bahrain?

    Great news being competitive with the same car from Australia, that means massive improvements in the races to come. It looks like this year (at least for now), we have the advantage on high-speed tracks. However, it could be that the Mercedes' PU just doesn't like the hot, as Toto said. I think China will reveal way more as to where we stand against Merc, but we are looking awesome.

    Apart from the unfortunate pit lane accident, yesterday's race reminded me of what I love watching F1 the most.
    The last few laps felt like I was holding my breath all the time.

    I think our engines have improved a lot.
    I'm sure Vettel was saving all his MGU power to defend, but it didn't look like Bottas could close the gap fast enough even with DRS.

    Well two races down and two victories,fuel saving and on the softs for 39 laps ����no new bits on the car,so far
    We're looking in a rather good position,yesterday was a great drive from Vet and showed how much he's matured,unfortunately we threw some good points away with Kimi's stop but things are looking good over all.

    onwards and upwards and lets enjoy our race wins but as with F1 things can change in a matter of seconds

    Amazing race but my celebration was cut short. My best friend, our Pomeranian, Rosie, passed away only hours after the race. She knew how much I love Ferrari F1, I hope she brings us luck from above this season.

    Forza Ferrari!

    Grande, Seb. What a drive.

    Shame about Kimi; wishing Francesco a speedy recovery.

    That power unit.

    Mercedes needed to get cute for results, I like that.

    ohhhhhh....i am sooooo sorry for your loss.
    i know exactly how it feels when you loose a furry one; same thing happened to me when my first dog (that i had while living at home) passed away....it is really hard knowing that it was part of the family for so long.

    i'm almost certain that your furry one is still watching you guys from ABOVE and STILL looking after you's....
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    The Mad Max HAM incident would have got so much more attention had some of the other incidents not taken place. What did you guys think about the incident?
    I felt that he just tried to push HAM out of the track typical Mad Max style. Notice how wide he was off the racing line and he had the audacity to think that HAM should have been penalised for the incident. I can't help but think sometime during the year one of our guys is going to suffer due to his "" behaviour
