    Hoping the opposite to the consensus will occur at the British Grand Prix - nothing is for certain!

    3 tenths deficit in Austria translates to 8 tenths deficit in Silverstone.
    My god, mwk360 is really trying his best to be a little bit more positive regarding our Scuderia without losing his own opinion and now you are going for your own show overhere?

    But thanks anyway for your predictions.

    I think our team is sandbagging. We will crush them all with a victory.

    I do want Ferrari to win, Vettel to win, a Kimi win in Spa won't hurt either but let's be real - Mercedes is too strong in qualifying and as seen by other races this season - qualifying is super important as evident by less overtaking on a track like Montreal.

    Ferrari should go for race setup because they can't beat Mercedes in qualifying anyways, last year Ferrari was second a lap slower in race pace and who knows, with a good Ferrari start, Mercedes might develop more issues running in the dirty air.

    - Mercedes don't think they will be penalised after Austrian GP retirements but are not 100% sure yet according to James Allison

    - Bottas will get penalty if they change his ES or CE.

    Seb needs to study Max's driving moves! He won 4x' never from pole! Just go for it!! Ferrari is at least as good as RB car wise for sure. Just the paint alone!!!

    A team engineer explains you have to move Friday back if you want to move Saturday’s running at all. Otherwise you screw over mechanics and engineers (on week three of a triple header). Not a simple move. There are a LOT of engineers who will say that’s not possible... debrief this, pre-quali briefing that, setup change this, tyre selection that blah blah blah

    Verstapen has won only because the leaders failed, and last race kimi got passed by Verstapen, Vettel finished 3 with a 3 grid penalty. Do some math Brembo

    Your right! I'll do some math, #1=s 1, First place. 4 wins without 1 start at pole = good driving. You are also correct and honest saying the leaders failed. The 3 grid penalty had 0 to do with Max. Seb won that on his own. Did I pass the math test?

    AMuS reports that the new aero update from Mercedes was originally planned for Silverstone but they were much quicker in the production which was the reason that most parts were already there for Spielberg. Now the rest of the update will be there in Silverstone.....


    Let's hope their engine reliability issue's take center stage during FP, Quali, or race...fingers crossed.

    If the race was today, the HAAS boys should line up on the lawn in the middle of the track opposite the Merc boys, have a gun fight and win the race

    Not really, the math you should be doing is that vettel has already 19 wins not coming from pole so I donít think he should be learning anything from max unless he wants to increase his dnf numbers. Also what did max do so special on this race? Made the most of kimi mistakes in the first lap (kimi should have won this race) and after that it was all down to bottas breakdown and strategy error with hamilton, it was a lucky win not sure thereís much to learn from that.

    SF should take every risk to get one car In 1st row, tyres must help a lot giving hot temperature.

    Can anyone shed some light on when the CE was changed? Was that part of the whole battery monitoring scandal?

    I think Ferrari had a CE issue before that, hmmm maybe at China?or Baku? i think. but we have lost the power advantage we had before spain aka before the monitoring

    Yes I have, just second old.
    Is this site only site you can use? How about that you look by yourself ex. accuweather.com or yr.no

    Don't cry mkw! I think it was Seb who pointed out Ferrari has been doing updates pretty much every race (since the fly-aways were finished... I think?), instead of saving up to make a big update "package".

    Plus you do know that it is generally accepted that the floor & diffusor contribute approx. 50% of total downforce, the FW ~25% & RW ~25%. Obviously those are only ballpark numbers that I've read on more than one website where they get into aero details.

    So, that makes me guardedly happy when I hear we're getting a new floor!
    Forza Ferrari !

    I agree Max has a lot of catching up to do to get his 19th win without pole. But he's moving along so far. Seb has a few more races over Max . As you point out Kimi , my favorite ; mistake 1st.lap, Bottas car breakdown, Strategy error from Lewis one of the best ever drivers! Anyone of these 3 drivers wish they had Max's luck ! F Pirelli fans all know luck has a lot to do with winning a race. Max so far 3-2-1 Blast Off!!!
