    I see no signs that the WDC is over, or signs of anything at all
    Yes mate it is, in the last 10 years or so the fastest car in Australia won the championship

    Honda-->what a difference when your with a winning team makes for good progress.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    And this isn't even the end, Max is alongside Seb. He will have to give up P3 tomorrow or Max will crash into him. And once Max is ahead of him, Ferrari's superior race pace will not be enough to overtake on this track.

    strange thing is how poor s1 is with the straights, whoever is in charge of the engine i hope they can do what binotto did

    Well let's wait to see the race pace tomorrow. However so far I am hugely disappointed by Leclerc not being able to qualify better. Also Redbull with Verstappen look strong, really strong and if their race pace is similar to Ferrari they will come up in front of us at the end. Verstappen is the kind of racer that really makes the difference. Redbull just needs to make their car 0.5 slower than Merc and Max will start wiping the floor with Hamilton. Last year in the second part of the season he was doing it anyway.

    Well last year we were 0,7 down in Australia, and come Bahrain we had pole by 0,2. This track just isnt for us, we need many straights, our car is a long-wheel based car made for the aero corners. The same as last year, in 14 days we will know more if the gap is real. Which i still doubt, and I think we will came much stronger in Bahrain and China, might even have a shot at pole. Will see.

    Forza Ferrari.

    Our trapspeeds of ferrari powered engines looked OK. I believe its still track specific let's see if we can pull off a win you never know what happens tomorrow hopefully we get past a merc at the start or bottas takes Hamilton. Leclerc vs verstappen will be fun to watch!

    What are you talking about,what kind of delusional lies you remember and say such words about me, i have been supporting this team for whole my life ,did so before Raikkonen came and will do so after so take your revisionist history somewhere else and dont tell people what to do.

    The usual crap - this track is not representative, let's wait for 2-3 more races. After 2-3 races, let's wait for aero upgrade in Barcelona. After aero upgrade, let's wait for engine upgrade after 7 races. After engine upgrade, results will vary based on tracks. After first half, let's wait for 2nd half. And finally in the end - saying we always knew this team was the fastest since the first day of testing. lol

    We shouldn't make comparisons to last year when this year we are suppose to be much better and turned a page, thats the whole point, we cant use excuses after excuses every year. We lost the championship last year by 88 points drivers and 84 constructors, we haven't won either of them since 2008...

    We keep changing individuals and team managers ,we managed to make the team " Italian" enough and nothing worked.

    they mastered street circuits with the simulated 4 wheel like steering or suspension or something, just look back at singapore, just watch onboard of merc in slow corners they can just turn easy at a higher speeds

    Look, we had driver error and development set backs last year........and now safety cars. Let's just take it race by race.
