    Everyone is "locked and loaded" on the hypersoft.

    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Sad thing is that Kimi will be getting the useful tow again at Sochi instead of Seb

    Lol yes this year unfortunately. Im sure the genius pitwall crew have a great reason for this. As seen by the beautiful results of seb and kimi messing each others races in china and monza

    Apparently this is a pic from yesterday of the Legendary Seb doing testing for Ferrari



    if im correct, Leclerc did testing the previous day to Seb , so maybe they are getting them used to the car on those new pirelli tyres for next year. lets hope they got the perfect data

    no doubt, putting drivers feelings above the championship has brought zero advantage when it comes to points that matter.

    Lewy and perfect no.2 Bottas have the best dynamic for teaming up whilst all other teams have fights between each other

    No more mistakes please, Ferrari's red trainers have too many self-inflicted bullet holes as it is!
    FORZA FERRARI!!!

    Yes; I agree. Forget teammates competing against each other when both championships are on the line.

    Ferrari forgot about team mates competing against each other since Rubenization time. I can't imagine next year @ Ferrari if the German does not win this year. Will the #1 spot be negotiable ? I actually feel sorry for Leclerc when he has to move over!!

    I think you've got a little thing for Rubens.

    Little no! A big heart for Rubens who Todt wrecked with his radio! No chance on earth to come in 1st. Schumy was the best , he didn't need the midjet wrecking Rubens chances how ever few there were. Not true??? Austria 2002 ! Boring ? For me too.

    The softest compounds will be used in Russia. Three races this season have had the hyper softs tyres (Monaco, Canada and Singapore). It wasn't even close to have two normal pitstops in Monaco or Singapore because drivers could manage them and a pitstop would have lost them time. In Canada Ferrari started on the ultra softs because they managed to do Q2 on that compound. They never used the hypers in the race. Neither did Merc. RBR did start on the hypers and did 16-17 laps before switching to the super softs to the end. Everyone in the top six was on the super softs until the end. So the question prior to qualifying now will be if it's possible to do Q2 on the ultra softs as in Canada? If not then everyone in the top 10 will have to start on the hypers. Even though Russia is very easy on the tyres (some special asphalt) that will be the only chance to maybe have a two-stopper. Maybe the hypers will go off quicker than in Canada. There are at least a few quicker corners in Sochi compared to Montreal that may eat the tyres a little bit more. If they go off after 10 laps it may not be possible to do 40+ laps on the yellow softs without losing all pace on the last few laps. If it's possible to do Q2 on the ultras it will be a sure one-stop race for the frontrunners. If that happens our package will again not be able to extract the full potential. And if you add the fact that Merc seem to have found a new way to manage the softest compounds it will be hard to win.

    it's true that no driver has won 3 races in a row this year. Hopefully that's a good sign for us.

    that was our impressions and guesses in both Monza and especially Singapore where everyone tought we were the team to beat......and look what happened, "two chains" won both of those races

    let's hope Ferrari and Seb can do something about that....and by that i mean a WIN
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    does anyone know what the current situation is with the top team's power units? Do RBR for example get penalties?

    championships > keeping kimi happy, but its already too late they are way too behind, still might have a slim chance if they finally enforce team orders
