    It's not how start but how you finish.

    I don’t know why but that Mercedes diffuser looks bigger & different from rest of the cars

    I have to admit, there's alot of "business" going on on that Ferrari livery. It's overkill IMO with all these new stickers.

    130R is not the place to "slow down" to get spacing especially when the other driver is on a FL.

    Car is nowhere and 10kph down in the trap. Honestly, it's a damn embarrassment. I know we always say it's early and only Friday. We said that las week as well. We all know how that ended up.

    Why is everyone surprised that Merc is faster than us? Get used to it, we should all be used to it after the last 5 years. It will last until 2021. If we are lucky we will have a chance after that.

    i'm not surprised, it's just AMUSING that's all.....some people thought that we might actually had a faster car in the first half.....whereas Mercedes was and had indeed the faster car.....they just let us think that we MAY have a chance this year; but NO, the merc have plenty of power ON TAP and they get to use it and turn that tap whenever they thing that the opposition is faster.....SAD JUST SAD
