    Adami "Carlos is behind you.. Let him by." Vettel: "You f###*d it up" Vettel nearly stops at Turn 1 allowing Hulk through but Sainz was behind.

    Hulkenberg: "What happened there guys? Carlos was on the racing line" Sainz: "You told me that Nico was slow lap"

    Magnussen with the same engine is just 0.7s down on us, we are sandbagging i think.

    Simple, Merc was chewing its tires in testing and demanded changes be made. Of course they say it wasn't for Merc, but only made the changes after Merc approached them.

    From my point if view, no need to panic here. Mercedes seems to have the upper-ground here but its only a couple of tenths. We might not get pole this time but this track strongly favors them not to mention that they got "personalized" tyres from Pirelli for this race (and 2 more). There will be races where we can do nothing but damage limitation. I believe that the race will be different, even a good start can change everything. No dooms day here at all.

    Agreed.. It sickens me. If Ferrari lose the WDC this season it won't be because of a bad car or bad driving, it'll be because yet again Pirelli favours the Mercs.

    And supposedly it’s only for 3 race tracks that got brand new asphalt, since the old spec tire got would the FIA do the same for us?
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    So if this tire change does end up favouring Merc, Ferrari are supposed to just take 3 guaranteed losses this season? This is a really silly way of looking at this season in my opinion. We have already lost valuable points in the first 4 races, another 3 losses of no fault to us could end the championship. Ferrari need to stand up for what is right.

    I think it’s clear, these new tyres are favouring mercs otherwise they used to struggle around on those SS.
    This is not good by FIA, Pirelli & mercs. Next 3 races Ferrari need to maximise the points as much as they can.
    SC looks inevitable at every race by looking at Williams, TR, hass(Grosjean), RB (mad max) cars.

    FIA - NO FURTHER ACTION warranted in incident where Max Verstappen failed to rejoin the circuit after the bollard.

    Im sure Ferrari can adjust regarding the tyre situation. They know what they're doing. Let us have more faith in the team.

    So it looks like we're faster than RBR at least, as I said yesterday but Merc seem a little bit quicker than us. Qualifying will be key and then it's up to the tyre strategy to reel in that Merc advantage. I wonder what tyres will be used in Q2?

    Ferrari's halo winglets are set to disappear before the Monaco GP following a disagreement over interpretation of the rules between the FIA and the Italian team.

    Yep, Horner worded it that Max weaved in and out WHICH I am sure Charlie will get rid of that loophole.

    Toro Rosso might apply to the FIA that Hartley start at the pit lane tomorrow for the race.

    Great job by FIA. First they say you can mount mirrors & use the space. Now when other opposed or questioned which they weren’t able to get that idea then immediate action to ban it. Very quick turn around by FIA.
    I haven’t seen this quick reaction or response even on race track when there’s an incident
