    Track position is key on this circuit. Overtaking is difficult.

    Agree that is why Q3 is gonna be absolutely crucial. Good reliability will of course help also.

    Ferrari should focus on the next race because this race is lost. Should be a good fight for 5th place between Vettel and Raikkonen.

    Yeah they should skip all the races this year and focus already on next year, we are doomed. I would die of laugh if we manage to get pole tomorrow and win the race on sunday. Hopefully I be back.

    Vettel: Mercedes and Red Bull prompted Pirelli’s tyre change for Spain
    2018 Spanish Grand Prix
    Posted on
    10th May 2018, 17:04 | Dieter Rencken and Keith Collantine

    Sebastian Vettel claims Pirelli’s change to its tyres for this weekend is a response to problems two of Ferrari’s rivals experienced during testing at the Circuit de Catalunya.


    F1’s official tyre supplier has reduced the tread depth of its compounds for this weekend’s race, as well as the upcoming rounds at Paul Ricard and Silverstone. Pirelli said this was done to allow teams to manage their tyre temperatures better.
    However Vettel believes the change was made in response to problems two teams encountered in pre-season testing.

    “Obviously we have different tyres because Pirelli reacted to the issues Mercedes had and Red Bull had in testing, so we’ll see how that goes,” he said.

    Vettel has previously indicated his suspicions about the change. Before it was announced the Ferrari driver said rival teams had been “[trying] to get the tyre supplier in the direction that suits their car best.”

    Ahead of this weekend’s race Vettel said the margin between the leading teams is very fine and small changes could tip the balance.

    “In Australia Mercedes was the fastest car, the best package. After that I think in racing it was a tie between us, Mercedes and Red Bull to be honest.

    “In qualifying we did what we were supposed to do and I think other people maybe had some trouble. I don’t understand sometimes the form on Friday versus Saturday. For example in Baku, why Red Bull were so quick on Friday, then not quick on Saturday, then for some laps at least they were on the pace on Sunday.

    “But going through our weekend sometimes you feel more comfortable in the car, sometimes less. You are always trying to fine-tune the set-up. I think it is very tight at the top and small things can make a difference on the day.

    “Now for here I think we get a round of updates for everybody, we’ll see where it takes us. But I think it’s quite nice, you can start first or even sixth and you know that you can fight for a win in terms of pure pace. That’s also, I guess, good for people who are watching because you don’t always know what’s going to happen.”

    Since pireli's trying to get hamilton amd redbull back to dominating. 5th and 6th is the way it looks at the moment kimi will beat seb with the new engine now that reliability issues rearing its face.

    On the positive side. Pole has been useless for ferrari the last 2 races. Maybe 5th and 6th will bring some luck for a change

    Front row.has been useless for ferrari so maybe back rows will bring luck

    Both of you are just pure comedy gold, pure negativity in all ways.... Have some faith, because remember we got 3 poles in last 3 races!

    It really is a joke of a sport if come Q3 Merc and even RB are ahead of us with these tire changes. Whats the point of engineering your car to handle the specified tires if the rules will just get changed to suit your competitors who did a worse job? Where is the incentive? I really and truly hope that it proves not to be true....

    Well, it doesn't look hopeless but it seems Merc is stronger here as expected. Seb and Kimi have to nail qualifying perfectly. Tyre strategy is going to be key here and I believe Merc will try one-stoppers if the tyres are to their liking, which it seem they are. Especially the mediums. I still think we're infront of RBR when it comes down to Q3 but only barely. We should also be stronger on race pace early on with heavy fuel. Then it's anybody's guess. If the team splits the Merc we have a shot at still have the lead in the WCC.

    people love hamilton on here but this pirelli bias again shows how much of his success was manufactured.

    seb wouldn't of mentioned it for nothing. this probably will hurt ferrari a lot. there advantage of getting tyres to work is negated now.

    I will hold my anger and comments until Q3 and the end of the race on Sunday. Hoping its Friday business as usual at Ferrari as we have seen for the first 4 races. Fingers crossed.
