    I will not count Ferrari out for this race & for sure not throwing in the towel on the season!

    Forza Ferrari.... bring on the race!

    As for all you slightly pessimistic folks... well... you know you'll be back - just can't help it!

    guys, we may have to wait for the 2021 rules changes in hopes that something will change.....because as of now the TAXI'S seem unbeatable.....
    ...the new SF90 in the MATTE RED, to me it looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    You used the wrong word there, it's called realistic rather than pessimistic.

    Nothing unexpected here, same old story. I actually envy those who thought we would be ahead. Doom and gloom all the time, huh? Its called realism.

    We keep changing individuals and team managers ,we managed to make the team " Italian" enough and nothing worked.
    Yeah, but anyways, last 2 years has given some hope that we will beat them, and it was really close last year for a long time, so hopefully this year will be even better than 2018.

    Same old story and same old moans, of course we wanted pole but the biggest worry now is having Mad Max in between Seb and Charles, all I ask is for our drivers to have a clean start and take it from there. We don't have Merc's one-lap pace at this track, but negativity is already raising its head and we don't need that after just one quali session.

    i am more of a pessimistic person/ i see it being more realistic but i do think next race will show if theres a chance or not, last year ferrari said they struggled in aus because of the diffuser so i hope they actually have a problem to fix rather than just being slow

    Yeah, I know! Hey check out chinmay though, he thinks he has a better word for it! Even tried to tell me that's what I meant.

    G'nite guys, yikes it is almost 4 AM here, adios
    Forza Ferrari !

    That's the anomaly. In testing, everyone said Ferrari was super stable, easy to drive, planted, looking great, turning fantastically well. Hughes said yesterday in middle sector, Vettel's speed was breathtaking and in the end, Haas is just 4 tenths away.

    May be it’s down to track & tyre temp.

    I’m quite disappointed with the result even more because RB is infront. We couldn’t lock out the 2nd row

    Did anyone think of the impact the new regulations will have on fuel? How much each team will be able to push in the race. Some fuel saving will have to be done by all teams, question is how much. I know it's a small chance but let us see.

    Ferrari fans love Ferrari, if they are fast we love them even more! Forza Ferrari!

    Well its not like we were miles behind Mercedes last year or 2017. But yes, current situation isn't ideal. It's always better to be on the pole than P3 or P5.

    Vettel's time this year is still slower than Hamilton's pole from last year.

    Vettel 2019 time: 1.21.190
    Hamilton 2018 pole time: 1.21.164

    big oof, but good job by lando and Haas, they have awesome aero or whatever because in testing they were same pace as ferrari in long runs so whatever concept they have is pretty good, binotto has lot to do in every department

    If I compare Q3 Lap1 to FL
    Ham improved by big margin .5ths, bottas improved around .2ths, vettel only by a .1th, Charles didn’t.
    I see this as a unique track specific characteristics that made difficult for our car.

    If we look haas only 0.4 s to leclerk this is strange I think that track is not good for Ferrari, we must wait for next go Bahrain and China their we will see real pictures. Haas is American team and American are very good in aerodynamic so I think that Ferrari weakness from 2010 is aerodynamic.

    aero is def an issue but the bigger problem is the rate of upgrades, its very poor or we have very small scope of improvement. Not sure what binotto can do, whoever he directs in the aero department needs to get a move on it and bring some stuff soon, haas look good im happy for them, hopefully they slow mercs down in some races when they pit early, like how force india done to ferrari all the years previous

    what if just like how mercs had hybrid engine development advantage starting early, just like how rb took honda because they know there is more improvement down the line, what if ferrari focus fully on new regs in 2021 from now, sacrifice 2 years and dominate from 2021 onwards lol that would be nice. obvious wont happen but a nice ferrari domination would be pretty cool .wouldnt change much these two years either lol, just thinking
