    Kimi has fastest tyre at the start & would give superior grip in 1st stint. He should clear mad max & ric at start then attack mercs. That’s the only hope.

    Difference between SS & US????
    I am not sure but 0.6...did see that somewhere

    The good thing is between Seb and Mad max there is quite a gap and drivers in between. I think the Red Bulls will attack the Mercs off the grid. Seb just needs a clean start

    Why so?

    Of course we could be screwed by SC tomorrow, but from a performance point of view, I think we have a good chance of winning this.

    i hope Kimi gets a good strategy tomorrow and good start as well considering he’s starting wih the softer ultras. maybe he can trouble the 4 guys before him at the start.. an early pit for Kimi may compromise the pit strategies of Mercs and the Bulls as well..

    good P1 for Seb! 3rd in a row.. hope this shuts up the negative guys here at TSN that pole is not yet set until Q3 is finished. it’s getting annoying really..

    I think Kimi was on course for pole without that mistake at T15, which would have given advantage for him even though he’s starts on US. But he’s on disadvantage side. Hope SC & good strategy help him

    I think Ferrari will have to beat Mercs in the tyre strategy department, simples.

    YES!!! Kimi loses places on the start and the US tyre could'v helped him remain station now he has crashstappen next to him, while seb has hamilton and bottas to deal with who are going to do a (melbourne - what ferrari did and wait for the SC)

    So Kimi should do longer on US 1st stint. He should clear RB’s & mercs in first 3-5Laps. Then he can have some buffer

    I just hope RBR don't luck into another SC win, that would be too much.

    Im hoping that so bad!, and he needs to play a factor against double mercs or else mercs will beat seb by doing an over and undercutting on him.

    Kimi ....isn't an overtaker .... so i don't know if he can do whats needed who is 7th? F.I looked mighty if its them

    Ferrari need to cover both the undercut and overcut tomorrow, seb just needs to nail the first few laps and create a buffer like his RB days, the Merc does not like following in dirty air

    I also think Kimi will have a though time, will be hard to overtake and FI are mighty in S3 so.. he won't be able to pull a gip the first couple of laps..

    Agree! Seb just needs to push 100% every lap, no saving tyres. Even if he pits first, it will reasonably only be by 1-5 laps which isn’t enough to make a difference at the end of the race. We need this one! Forza Ferrari.

    That's not possible.. even if he can create a good gap, let's say 5s.. if Merc decide to pit one car, Seb will have to react, which leaves the other MErc in the lead, waiting for a SC (which will come)..

    Ok...so...
    We have Seb and Hamilton on the front row....if Seb couldn't keep up on the start then......we have a really huge problem.
    Also Bottas is on P3 and he can also be a threat..(Remember his starts on Bahrain and China)
    Then we have the HUGE strategy problem....Baku is a really easy track for undercuts....
    +There is no way we will not see a SC

    I think with a perfect lap the gap to the Mercedes would be around 0,4s on this track in qualy. Its amazing as last year we were 1,2s down on Mercedes here. Ferrari had done an awesome job with the car really. Strategy will have to be perfect tomorrow, hope Kimi with US will pass RBR cars on the start already. Its gonna be hard, dont know what to expect really, will see.

    Happy day for me, but the race is tomorrow. I really feel bad for Kimi as we had 1-2 in the bag.

    Forza Ferrari, Vettel, Kimi.

    let's hope so.....one thing is for sure, Seb will be vulnerable as there are TWO mercs behind him who can undercut or overcut him....

    long race so lets hope we'll turn up the favorites tomorrow
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    We have a fastest car and with US and DRS, they do not have a chance in that long straight...is it 1.7 km long or what
