    Dani R said most teams are running conservative, i wonder when they turn up the engines how that will effect things, Honda and Renault suddenly super reliable engines hmmm time will tell

    Good times, i hope we get a rainy day atleast once to test things out, hope vettel gets a super clean day tomorrow so far so good
    Yesterday Vet did a lot in 1:20s 1:21s
    Not much to read on those either. (As on the best laps)
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    Yep, especially Mercedes. They are methodical and like playing the long game.

    2 different approaches to testing. 1 is behind the scenes splitting their drivers and not gaining much press news while the other is up front and running the same drivers each day and all over the news. It's interesting. The "German" (Austrian really) approach and the Italian approach.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Daniel Ricciardo said the only team that stood out from these 2 days is Ferrari because there is strong performance and strong reliability.

    For those commenting on the “simple” rear suspension of Ferrari - rumours (autobild) are staying the Ferrari is squatting on the straights which franz tost is apparently quoted as saying gives us half a second over merc on the straights. Additionally, the Ferrari is also reportedly super stable under late braking and corner entry.

    It’s all heresay for now, but a pertinent point all the same. APPEARANCES ARE NOT EVERYTHING

    So far, people were concerned about the front wing and rear suspension - and it’s those two concepts currently being lauded by tech reporters. Subject to change of course - but demonstrates that FERRARI KNOW WHAT THEYRE DOING, specifically better than casual fans posting on some forum.

    As the meme from like 2011 said: STAY CALM and CARRY ON. It’s allllll part of the fun

    Indeed, the Mercedes fronts had heavy signs of wear. Ferrari have a new suspension and it's only natural to start finding the best geometry setup hence the high mileage, higher then everyone else so far.

    im very interesting on ferrari's new rims and if it worked, it was used on very seldom laps apparently. not sure if its tyre cooling like mercs since it has none of those holes designs like they had

    Not easy to see as clear as the image of the Ferrari further up since there's a wheel lock but you can tell there is a defined black line in the fronts. It was present almost on every run and compound they used.

    Because in the image of the the Ferrari it has a blocked wheel under braking. For me F1 is all in the little details ;)

    [AMuS] About Leclerc's longrun and the the Ferrari taking the tyres a little too hard (graining). We asked another rival team. Leclerc started the longrun not on fresh tyres but on old tyres (8 laps). It's no wonder his lap times fall off at the end.
    maybe this is why i saw leclerc in the high 1:24s for awhile while mercs was doing lots of 1:22s , the graining is very high but its testing lets hope they work on that

    Looking forward tbh to see Robert behind the wheel. It was such a pity whatever happened to him. I clearly remember him pushing the BMW powered Sauber back in the days.
