    Mercedes has made changes in the front area of the chassis . Inside the Mercedes team they say it‘s a proper step forward. Also Bottas said that he would help Lewis if the situation is asking for it and would help the team.

    I guess the rumours of a black livery were false. I don’t see any black markings to commemorate Sergio M and Genoa.

    Lol seb sees it too

    Why is the Ferrari the fastest car atm?

    Vettel: "I wouldn‘t be sure about that. I think it‘s hyped atm. I think it‘s much closer than some want to believe. It‘s important that we know where we stand.
    Vettel: "We concentrate on every single task that is infront of us. We squeeze everything out because in my opinion only then you can talk about winning here and there"

    At a better aerodynamic efficiency of the Ferrari as the only explanation Mercedes does not believe: "We would feel so on every straight from start to finish. We observe power surges in very specific passages at precisely defined times. That speaks for a deliberately chosen use of achievement. "Apparently Ferrari can retrieve what Hamilton helpless, but media effective called" trick "only once per round. However, every turn, if needed.

    What makes the whole thing even stranger is the strange sound the Ferrari engine sometimes emits when accelerating. A loud shriek. Audience videos of the unusual noise have already made the rounds on social media. Also only ever once per round. And in a place that varies every now and then.

    Unfortunately, this sound is not necessarily the prelude to the mysterious power play. It is often observed elsewhere. It would be too good if it was related in time.

    Initially, the competition believed that Ferrari would open the wastegate valve during this phase, which would be equivalent to refraining from producing electricity through the MGU-H. But that does not really make sense.

    Mercedes engine chief Andy Cowell does not believe in the wastegate theory. "The frequency of the noise speaks against it. It has to be some other valve in the turbocharger area. "If the experts are already at a loss, they may continue to puzzle. Maybe you, dear reader, have a good idea. Write us.

    Does anyone have any footage of the Ferraris making this sound?

    IT’S ITALY, IT’S SPECIAL”
    ferrari media
    For Kimi and Seb Monza is a home grand prix

    Monza, August 30 – Off the back of the Belgian Grand Prix, and one day after the great street show in the heart of Milan, comes Scuderia Ferrari’s home race. It’s hot at Monza, but conditions may change for the worse tomorrow. Anyway, for both Kimi and Sebastian, this is not a race like any other.

    “I enjoy coming to Monza”, says Kimi “it’s a great circuit, a lot different from many others. It’s a challenging track even if on paper it’s only a few chicanes and a few corners; it’s not easy to be fast here. I have a lot of mixed memories from racing on this track; on some occasions we have been fast, but we never really got it together. There’s a lot of passion here from our tifosi, they give us a lot of support. Ferrari is Ferrari and our fans are loyal, in good and bad years, no matter the results we have. It’s Italy, it’s special, it’s our home grand prix. But the pressure we have here in Monza is the same that we have in other places. It doesn’t matter how the last race has gone, good or bad, it doesn’t guarantee anything for this weekend. We are in a different circuit and with different conditions; it will be a bit tricky over the weekend again here. It’s impossible for me to know now what will be the end result, it’s pure guesswork. The further you are up in qualifying the less you risk to end up with an issue. We ‘ll see how the weather will be tomorrow and how it goes . We’ll do our normal job and we’ll see what it brings”.

    Seb adds: “In Spa we brought some updates, including the new engine and this track in Monza is somewhat similar to the one in Spa, but there are turns too, not just straights, that can make the difference. We need to find the right rhythm for this weekend. For sure, we don’t want just a podium. Winning is always great, but obviously winning here means much more to us as we are in Italy, the country where Ferrari was born. Our task is to make sure our car gets even better than in Spa. We know we have a very good engine, a great package, and we look ahead to the challenge. It’s great to get into the car and feel that it is possible to fight for first place. I believe 2016 and 2017 were fundamental for the development of the car and it’s so beautiful to see we have kept on with the pace. However, we want to get stronger and keep working hard”.

    I actually don't think it was Ferrari making the sound. A theory is it was headset feedback from Hamilton as he kept falling further and further behind Vettel's Ferrari.

    I think that they captured a bit of it HERE

    No problems, It's Pirelli to the rescue! So many great colors to chose from. Seb needs to do pole!! It's Italia!!
