    After watching the humiliating Q3 show, I'm warming up to the idea of rooting for Honda. Max is shaping up to be the potential challenger to Stuttgart. Whether by sheer talent or bumper car attitude, Max will certainly pose a tangible threat to the Mercs. As far as our boys, the "upgrades" Ferrari will introduce over the season will inevitably lead to a slower, less competitive car. We need a younger, fresher version of Ross Brawn to reverse this path to irrelevance.

    It's a sport and Ferrari aren't on top. You're using this sport as a place to spew rampant racist nonsense. Great job.

    This forum is a shell of it's former self. 12 years ago, nonsense like this never flew unmoderated. Disgusting.

    Car looks good. No sliding no corrections. And seb keeps smiling after qualy. PU issues or cooling issues seems to be true, maybe no party mode.

    Car looks slow, hopefully some problems that can be fixed fast.

    Youíre really reaching there...since when is calling someone a rat racist? Get off your politically correct, offended by everything soapbox. No one brought race into the chat but you. Am I displeased with Ferrariís performance- yes, do I dislike Hamilton and his lies/antics - yes, do I care about the colour of his skin - NO.

    Get over it.

    I'm over it. You should know however, if you're unaware, that in many parts of the world, including the Midwestern and Southern US, ratboy is a common phrase used to demean those with brown skin. Basically a 'safe' way to use the N word.

    Thank you. I'm just tired of hearing and dealing with such things, especially in light of the NZ shootings. I've had some real life incidents with race/skin color that have lead me to react as I did.

    Back on track, I'm hoping Charles isn't taken out by Max in Turn 1. He will definitely be playing bumper cars with someone. Forza Scuderia.

    I didn’t take it as racist. Just a vulgar statement that shows that the person is a looser who attempts to gain something back by the lowest means possible,

    That is my fear aswell, but I think it’ll be more with Seb. Max thinks it’s his year and might be rash, let’s hope he’s grown up over Christmas.

    Its slow because it understeers. That means car wont turn in until it regains required speed(lower). For F1 this is bad because with oversteering car you can throw it around and correct mid corner if you go too fast (say 270kmh at apex), but with understeering car, while it might look stable, it looks that way because you get into corner at 270kmh but since car wont handle steering lock, you are passanger until speed drops down (say 10-15kmh) and car is drivable again.

    So, understeer takes away control of car but gives "stability", only because cornering takes longer. Oversteer gives you ability to correct it mid corner and keep up your speed. Last year we had some understeer as well, this time (might be tires) we got more. Sf70H had none of it actually. Very nimble and oversteery.

    You’ve got to be kidding me? I will repeat this one last time...it was never intended as racist comment. Where I come from not everything is “black/white”. I called him a rat simply because he is a liar and a cheat in my eyes. That’s all. End it.

    Let’s get back to Ferrari chat please.

    There are rumors, Ferrari was running their PUs on Safe mode to avoid reliability problems. In order to compensate that, we're running on low downforce setup.

    Yeah I heard that, I’m not sure.
    1. That would smack of incompetence and Binotti doesn’t seem that. Plus if they had they wouldn’t be shocked at their performance.

    Personally I think it’s down to the track. Tight corners and what darkchild said that wasn’t displayed in testing.
    Go to another track and they’ll either be level or on top.

    I also think Merc have improved and the track suits them.

    If it’s still the same after 2 more races then panic

    Until tmrw’s race, This banter will go on.

    Yeah seeing Binotto reaction, they (ferrari) expected to be performed a lot. But it didn’t, I think they will analyse it after the race.

    Well it looked like the Ferrari had a plow attached to its back. I hope we didn't return to 2014-2016 era.

    I'm afraid that's what it will be. Then in 2021, expect the same.

    Mercedes are light years ahead when it comes to working with new regulations. They have immense resources and obviously a more clever staff. We will have to wait till after 3 races or so to see if this 8 tenth gap is legitimate, but if it is, 8 tenths is nearly impossible to claw back, especially since Mercedes is better at development too.

    My optimism for this season is all but wiped out after that session and Vettel's comments on Mercedes being much faster in the corners. I wonder whether the reduced maximum downforce from the wing is the main reason or whether it's setup related. Either way, it does not look good for tomorrow.

    Yes, mine too. But have to take into account a fact that we have never been good in Aus, and Merc where known for blunders in each season they competed (Monaco 2017 and Singapore, us last Singapore as well). Plus Vettel said feeling was not as good as in testing, so there is a pace in car there.

    I will wait for Bahrain and China, but I am not optimistic.

    I can't tell if I'm more embarrassed by Ferrari's performance or the immature name calling of our rivals AND the resulting sanctimonious faux outrage. You know who you are and need to get over yourselves.

    No, it's not. Stop making stuff up to defend your position. A quick Google search yields nothing racist. It's immature, not racist.

    It must be the engine, we did lose 0.342 in Sector 1 and there are 3 "long" straights.
