    It’s fp2 cool down. Different fuel load, more number of laps, Ferrari will bring the set-up down to fp3

    i think US will be the preffered tire for race on sunday.....qualify on HS and use it for 15-20 laps and then swithc to the US for the remaining of the race.....me thinks, but whta do i know??

    Yeah i think that we have better race pace...
    Also,it's possible to see 2 or even 3 pit stops on Sunday judging from tyre wear.

    I think it’s a 1stop strategy. With high probability of SC, a free-pit stop is offered

    Because if we pit early we will be behind them on track if theres a vsc or safety car and then they get essentially a free pitstop? Like in baku, when we pit and bottas jumped us because of the vsc?

    Good thing we have a free day before p3 and quali to improve. But seb's long run pace seems to be good.

    If we can qualify 2nd or 3rd, as long as it is only behind redbull, that is a great result. However, looking at race pace, I think we’ve got something in reserve for qualifying. I think it will be close.

    It's going to be a pure one-stopper, drivers can do whole race on hyper softs.

    I think Ferrari and Red Bull are equally matched, especially if we take red cars' usual improvement on Saturday and extra engine mode. That's good to have other cars between Seb and Hamilton.

    Autosport puts practice analyses but last time they put Ferrari as favourite, while F1.com was spot on in predicting Mercedes dominance.

    I don't think we've seen the full potential of any of the front runners in practice today. Pole in Q3 last year was 1,12.178 and Ricciardo was the only one under 1,12 today with a 1,11.841. All top six drivers should be under 1,12 tomorrow in Q3 and pole should be a low 1,11. There's still room to improve.

    True dat! This is early days, and i think both our cars were doing pretty well.
    Still think we are in for a good shot at PP. At least with vettel.
    Quite sure one of the RBR cars will be on the front row as well. Merc boys dont look too comfortable, but you can never count of Hamilton putting in a great lap out of nowhere.

    Enjoy saturday boys. Sunday is going to be a snooze fest.
    Shittiest race of the season.
    Silently, like a shadow
