If Ferrari can fight Mercedes there, it would be safe to assume they can fight on tracks like Spa, Monza, Suzuka and Abu Dhabi. This weekend will probably set the tone for the rest of the season.
    Omg you are not a Ferrari supporter, your position is so neutral that I don’t know how to justify your presence here.

    I want to see Ferrari domination like it was in the good old days of 2000-2004. The good old era when Schumacher destroyed everyone else, I want to see Sebastian inflicting the same pain on his rivals. It's about time that a red tsunami rises and swallows everything in its path.

    that does not have to be a bad thing, Ferrari have been good at responding to irregular situations in the last few races so who knows, it might even help us.

    I don't know what stat you are looking but Merc was never faster than Ferrari by 'quite some margin' it you say that two, three years ago i will agree.

    I'm really hoping Seb (or even Kimi!) can win this one. Would be so nice for Ferrari to take the victory in the home race of Mercedes.
    Common doesn't mean "Come on"; "Should have" not "Should of" ;)

    Mika Salo is our guy and Shetty should be neutral. Could be worse, much worse.

    You can always count on Mercedes International Assistance to help their golden boy Hamilton.

    Mark Webber total grand prix wins are just 9, Vettel beat that in 1 year alone, in fact, he won 9 on the trot in 2013. Vettel won 4 titles, Webber couldn't even finish 2nd in the standings in any year, no wonder he has nothing positive to say.

    "Lewis [Hamilton of Mercedes] is handy but probably not quite as much of a machine as those two [Sebastian and Fernando] are. They are literally 'plug them in and off they go'. They are very, very handy."

    Nice to have Salo there, I think all three could be ex-F1 drivers.

    Mark Webber was gifted a great car, but in his prime, he was heavily beaten by a young Seb. Liked him at first, disliked him soon after. He was never top team material, he was just lucky to land in a championship car. Never at the level of Ferrari's world champs and Felipe too.

    The FIA confirms the number of power unit elements during this season so far for the German GP

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DidpgAWXkAA5Soy.jpg


    W09 with minor updates in the behind the bargeboard area and winglet

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DieAFalXcAAXzhT.jpg


    McLaren slotted floor design was copied by Ferrari and now Red Bull. Red Bull's design very similar if not the same to Ferrari's.

    Williams has updates too.....but personally, no amount of updates can help those 2 drivers..

    Vettel during the press conference:

    Vettel: "After 2016 there was as if a lock opened and we improved. The change in regulations in 2017 has helped us alot to catch up. We lacked some pace at the end of 2017 and we have learnt from it"


    Vettel: "The team is still improving and still growing. The team have been here for a long time. We have a group of very good people, a mix of very good people. Sometimes you have things that work better then expected and things that work less then expected."
