    Even taking all the usual FP1 caveats into account.. 1.18.1 time from Bottas is still a stonking time.. full 2 secs faster than last year practice time.. Are the new tyres really helping Mercs ???????

    As per numerous reports, this is the weekend when Mercedes will use full power like they used in Melbourne, they were saving it in the past few weeks as confirmed by insider reports.

    Hopefully Ferrari can keep Red Bull at bay because Mercedes is out of reach, expect Mercedes pole gap to fastest Ferrari in the range of 6 tenths. Ominous indeed and this will set the tone for the rest of the season.

    Nope Ferrari will be ominious this time, the time of Mercedes domination is over. ;)
    I suspect the Mercedes should keep RBR at bay this time, they might be more of a problem then we are, because we should be ahead. Remember that the Q3 tyres will be the SS, which should suit us.

    Last year we were nearly 1 second down in P1. I expect a Ferrari pole in Q3 by at least 0,2s if dry.

    We might be saving the engine a lot, look at S1 speed-charts.



    Used tyres after FP1.

    Nothing to worry about yet, it's only FP1 in difficult conditions. No way Mercedes is 1s in front. If the gap is true then McLaren would have also made 1.5s gain :)

    Very good job by Kubica, faster than Stroll throughout the session.

    No worries yet, if ferrari felt they were robbed by tyre changes then there would have been definitely opposed it.
    So no worries. It’s just FP1.

    And I thought only 2 cars are allowed per team:
    - Mercedes-AMG: L.Hamilton
    - Mercedes-AMG: V.Bottas
    - Mercedes-AMG: B.Maylander
    Liberty Media what do you think?

    Good no one knows what we've got. Keeping cards close to chest is something Ferrari are doing very well recently and happy for that to continue. Only Quali and Race will tell full story, until then everyone else can smile!

    Why? Did Ferrari complain the last time this happened? No, they sat there and took it. It's only Fp1, but if Merc have found a significant amount of time with this tire change I will be so upset and loose what little faith I had left with the sport.

    Guys, this tire construction change is only for few GPs right? Not for all the tracks. At least that is what I understood it as.
