    Happened same with baku. No worries. By Fp3 we will optimise the set-up.

    Can we be really down 0.4-0.5 tenths after 2 weeks of rest? That would be huge...Especially on a track where Pirelli suited their tyres for mercs.

    Nobody improving their times on SS .... Pirelli did a great job in doing such things.

    I knof it's only Friday and I don't want to be pessimistic.. I only think it's realistic there will be weekend where everything will go good and there will be some weekend where it son't be that good.. This weekend seems to be the latter.. We seem to struggle on apce (which ofcourse can be improved, but still MErc and RBR look very strong). But we also seem to be on the back foot with tyres, since we have the most SS and these aren't working..

    It's almost like I'm reading the Baku practice thread. How many times were ferrari off the pace in practice this season by a couple of seconds and came back in Q3.

    Agree,
    however it is clear SS isn't working and we have a lot of them...

    "There are some issues around the Ferrari mirrors which the FIA are not happy with," Ted reports.

    "I can see what the concern is. By putting these mirrors where they are, and particularly this little guide vein that goes above them and then suspends the mirror. It's so obviously an aerodynamic device that it starts to get into the position where it's not a mirror at all.

    "I think there are some more rules in terms of what you're allowed to keep the mirror secured by. The suggestion is this may be looked at again by the FIA."

    Charlie Whiting was taking photographs of the mirrors in question on the Ferrari yesterday and Jo Bauer, the FIA's technical delegate, is down at the Ferrari garage currently having another look.

    according to SKY

    Saw on lap video of vet, he isn’t pushing at all...!! Also seems to be heavy on fuel.
    RB always try to top on Friday.
    Try to analyse the trend from past 4 races

    Still, I don't think you can deny RBR look strong, definitly VER on this long run..

    I am watching Seb now live onboard for already 10 minutes, he is not pushing, just driving to the delta. The car looks very stable in every corner, with very good grip. Nearly no correction on his steering wheel. We are 0,3 down on Hamilton on the soft tyres, but on the SS we are half a tenth down on Verstappen and faster than Bottas. It doesnt look bad, but we need to still find some time overnight.
