    As usual the weather looks as if it will be changeable with some rain possible for both quali and race. Again we will probably suffer if that's the case.

    yeah, but our car seems to suffer a WHOLE lot more in the wet then the Merc does...
    as we've seen in previous wet races or quali, we seem to be MILES away on pace compared to the Merc....but if it's DRY, we're up there with the BEST

    so we'll see how this weekend is gonna unveil....good thing there's only 2 races left and we get to put behind us this luckluster of a season we've had.....

    let's hope 2019 will be better for us and we actually get to WIN some championships
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    No updates for Ferrari this race.

    Merc's are NOT gonna run their "legal" rims yet again for the 3rd GP in a row.

    idea

    I was just thinking, will it be more interesting if the drivers championship was decided on the number of wins instead of points. points can still be used for constructors. Imagine this season, ham won 9 races out of 21 and vet around 5-6 and other drivers in the mix as well and still 2 races to go. This would allow more racing between drivers and even team mates can have a chance as it will be more open and can eliminate some factors thats not in drivers hands. for example if a drivers has a DNF due to the car or other drivers error and the competitor finishes 2nd, it will still be level play as none got a win or advantage just more point for constructors. another one in china where vettel lost more point though he was ahead of ham due to someones mistake. imagine if number of wins would decide , the championship still cud be alive and more exciting as that wud change driver mindset instead of damage limitation and just scoring points by finishing 3rd or 4th

    saw few ppl post forecast of weather , high chances of rain throughout the weekend which is indeed terrible for us, the car is really awful in the rain and we need to win to have any shot at WCC, plus ferrari want to do test and get data for there floor that failed for next year i assume, see where the problem is with the wind tunnel, this rain almost every raceweekend this year has really hurt us when trying to get data on new parts

    What's really awful with Ferrari when it rains ? The car ? Or the driver ? It can't be Ferrari isn't capable of a car set up properly for the rain , tires included. I wonder how much experience and confidence Leclerc has ; come racing in the rain?
