    Race to forget, what a frustrating afternoon, we threw away P2 in the stops.

    Mercedes was easily faster in race trim, those Pirelli changes surely didn't hurt them.

    I posted on Friday that Ferrari is the 3rd best car and it was proved today. Even with a damaged Red Bull, Verstappen was able to pull away from Vettel. Just shows how slow race car Ferrari has built.

    The car is neither in the window in qualifying nor in race or you could say even if it is in window, it's just not quick enough to beat the likes of Mercedes and Red Bull. Radical upgrades are needed to salvage this season or if not possible, better focus on 2019.

    Ferrari can only blame themselves. No one else. They did an extra pitstop (I am not sure they needed that), they put in Mediums and not Softs, etc, etc, etc. Obviously, the race was a disaster. Surely enough, luck was not in Ferrari's side as well (because for example, the Pitstop was delayed due to another car passing by from example).

    Anyway, next race.

    Vettel was 30 seconds ahead of Riccardo so I doubt that

    Vettel had 3 poles and should have had 3 wins...

    People I believe we still have a good car.

    You have to understand that track position is key on this track. The dirty air here is absolutely atrocious, up there with Australia.

    Look what happened when Vettel was infront of Bottas for half the race. Bottas couldn't do anything. Same thing with Vettel behind Verstappen.

    Stay calm. Don't think too much from this race. The next two races are back to regular tyres and THEN we will see who officially has the fastest car.

    Also please reform the pit wall. Please....

    Well bad day at the office, very bad strategy, very bad pace, Mercedes was 1 second per lap faster, this is the tyres. I dont care anymore, because I suspected this. Poor Kimi, Seb was second and the team destroyed his races, bravo! I am getting used of it, and I am not very suprised.

    It's always about the tyres, and rightly so, they're the most important piece. Just be glad there isn't a tyre war.

    Barely OK drivers, 3rd tier cars and worst strategiest in the paddock. There you have it, a perfect description of Scuderia Ferrari. Pack it up guys and go back to Maranello and square one. You obviously can’t compete with the best.

    Even allowing for Pirelli cheating with Merc Ferrari strategy and team operations are awful. They should have been well infront in the title but keep conspiring to finish a few places behind where they should. Bahrain where they were dominant they only managed by the skin of their teeth. Pirelli organised these untested tyres every fewraces to allow Merc to stay in touch but as Ferrari are messing up their chances its only served to put Merc out in front in the title. Things can only get better. Ferrari need to push for further tyre changes that play to their strengths even more, this should be on safety grounds...dont change the tyres shoot the Pirelli board.

    No. Only Silverstone and France will use these tyres from today.

    1) VET complained about the rears, while BOT said tyres were very conssitent, so chances that Seb needed to do a 2 stop (which was the initial plan) were high which would have put him behind RBR, so it was a good call to get him inunder VSC. Problem was the pit stops was really bad which put him behind VER
    2) Seb didn't have new Softs

    If Merc can keep this kind of performance it won't matter

    Yep, we needed to be in the lead coming to Europe by atleast 10 points.

    You win some you loose some. We will be better in Monaco i hope.
    It was a disappointing race for us but its race 5 We still have 16 more to score wins at.

    With longer wheelbase Monaco-Hungary-Singapore advantage may be gone now as well. On the other hand, Canada should be good for us. We'll see. Our race pace today was only better than Bahrain pitstop. Ferrari should clearly say if the tyres hurt them and talk about this subject.
