    If the safety car does not come then the race will be ruined if they leave the second merc out

    Also, believe it or not Kimi may be in the best position.

    If he gets an early VSC he can pit and stick the SS or softs and run to the end. The others will not be able to as they would need to switch to the Ultra soft which will nt go to the end

    3 poles in a row prove we have atleast equal the Mercs in terms of one lap performance. We have negated their party mode with our party pooper mode

    I hope this will make the doom and gloom fans shut up with their negative comments for a change..... or not since they have ways of finding fault even in victory

    why would they need to switch to US?? Then can just as wel pit and take S

    Kimi needs to overtake atleast one RB at the start. The RB will be as quick in sector 2.

    Our best hope will be to stay in the lead at the start with a perfect timed SC that will eliminate different timed pit stops..

    If you look at last years race, Seb and HAM pitted at first SC.. But after that, if you look at the restart, the 2FI and Massa were all over Vettel on the long straight.. It will be though.. Also RIC with his master braking skills.. Hope for a Ferrari win, but it"s going to be super though

    This will be the hardest race to win so far. The long straight and DRS will be tough to defend against.

    Seb needs to pull of two laps at he start like he did at Red Bull. Be 2 seconds ahead and out of DRS range. Then manage things as they come.

    Seb should drive his own race, no need to react to any undercuts. If SC is coming out it may be good or bad for Seb, depending at what stage the race is. But this is unpredictable and most of the times hardly anything could be done to counter this.

    Best for Kimi if SC comes out at lap 6-7 so he can change tires with least time lost

    1) seb needs perfect start & manage the race
    2) Kimi needs a perfect start atleast should take RBs & then In few laps mercs.
    3) mercs are running with less wing means low DF, which will effect their tyre performance on US. + ham had lock up & flat spotted his SS tyres. He would be vulnerable.

    Hopefully this time around Charlie doesn't send out a possible SC after Seb has passed the pit entry like in China. That was a clear case of race manipulation in my book. I also hope the team doesn't come out with another hopeless strategy for Kimi. Seb's wasn't best either as Bottas jumped him in the pits.

    I think the Merc engine is a backwards step on last year, I think they sacrificed performance for reliability

    Why should mercs use US?

    Keep in mind the Baku race is earlier compared to last year meaning the weather was colder. Otherwise teams are are trying to save their engines which is why the pole lap was slower.

    Is it possible that the lower-track temperatures should play into the hands of cars tomorrow who have a more high-downforce setup like we do?

    Pole lap is slower, the trend is Ferrari engines cars are all faster then last year, all Merc powered cars slower then they were last year

    Merc's are gonna go for the 1 stopper....ending in mediums (white); VSC/SC contingent. Looking at some photos from all the cars using SS & US, heavy graining on the tyres. Merc's still eat their tyres....ending on softs (yellow) will be way too risky for them W/O a VSC/SC.

    No mediums. Only US/SS/S

    "Ferrari have been so dominant in the last couple of races pace-wise" - Hamilton's words after qualifying. Is this the same team that was suggesting great battles between Red Bull and Ferrari in 2015-16, where they were 1s clear? Now his is crying when Ferrari is 0.1 or 0.2 seconds in front and level in the race.

    Very disappointed with Kimi's performance today, litany of errors, forcing him onto US and losing PP. Good job by Vettel though.

    I feel sorry for Kimi. But the race is tomorrow.

    Kimi was the quickest in sector 2 so I wonder having a LWB didn't really hurt us. So I guess we shouldnt have to worry too much about monaco, Hungary and Singapore .

    Monaco is going to be interesting, I think RBR will be the team to beat there.. it seems to me RBR have a very good car, also Renault has improved a lot,but I think a lot is due to the fact RBR is capable of generating a lot of downforce, without beeing to draggy (as opposed to McLaren)

    I am surprised some people play down Red Bull chances for the championship. They are as fast as anyone in the race and their development is fantastic. Very big threat.

    keep in mind guys that Kimi will be the first to pit of the top 6... he can come into play to disrupt the mercs when they come out of their first pit stops...
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...
