    yeah!! exactly!

    but nani said it doesnt seem to be flat spotted so kinda takes away the chance that seb could be little quicker

    Horner says they missed the window for quali on the softs , so more pace there for redbull, he says max was quickest on mediums ( i think)

    There is more pace for Ferrari as well (given we screwed s3 and no one really shows true pace in FP2 perf runs). God you hear everything that makes it sound bad, who cares what they say.

    Bottas was able to run 34.9 a few laps, Seb was 35.3 to 35.7 in the 5-6 laps I followed. Ham was slower, Lec ran on soft tyres but ran around 35.5 to 36.0. When he switched to medium he did a 33.7.

    toto says session was not bad for them, they are quite happy,and also that ferrari looked similar to barca than melbourne

    he says climate change made a big diff (temperature effects setup a lot)

    Toto said he's happy with the 2021 meeting regulations

    Bottan did about 20 on the soft ones, and its look like the tire significantly drop in performance at 14.

    Looks like being on pole isn’t any advantage. 3 DRS zones, it’s hell of overtake fest for sure.

    yeah! hopefully we can close the gap even more by q3 time, preventing a merc 1 - 2 somehow someway would be impressive for seb and lerc if they can find a way to get between or very close

    20 is a heck of a lot of laps after going on hot laps earlier on them, they seem quite good on tyre wear , Aus bottas was doing very quick times on the softs for awhile after seb and ham pit.

    any idea how much his times dropped by? because if he was doing 1:34's maybe his last few laps dropped that avg

    It looks pretty good. Much better than two weeks ago on friday. My biggest concern, when I saw the SF90 for the first time, was how they would manage with the cooling. Because of how skinny and neat the back of the car looks like along with the roll top intake. I hope the performance in Australia was down to a faulty setup or simply just down to the characteristics of the entire package. I guess we will find out on sunday at the latest.

    As for the tyres. Last year Pirelli brought the mediums, softs and supersofts to Bahrain. Relative to this year that would equal roughly the C2, C3 and a C3.5 for the SS (no SS this year in the range). This year they've brought the C1, C2 and C3 but Isola says hard and medium tyres are somewhat softer than last year. So maybe they can be called C1.5, C2.5 and C3.25 compared to last year. They would interlap a bit more with that kind of labeling. Either way the total range at Bahrain this year is a little bit harder than last year, especially the softest compound. Last year the fastest times on friday were 1:31.060 and 1:29.817. Today we've seen 1:30.354 and 1:28.846. So they actually seem faster than last year. Last year Seb got pole with 1:27.958. They should beat that which means these cars must generate a helluva amount of downforce even though they have been "dumbed down". That's pretty impressive and may mean I was wrong. I wonder if it will be like that at every track in normal conditions? One more year with lap records.

    I think it will be soft=12-14 , Medium=30 and soft= 30 , soft =11-10.
    Remeber how Seb almost missied the win using one stop strategy. Thanks for Bottas who chicken out at the end.

    So you think it’s gonna be a 2 stop race this weekend? I thought this years tires are a step harder, so majority if not ALL races will be a one stopper
    ...the new SF90 in the MATTE RED, to me it looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    I think they'll nurse tyres to one stop.

    Looking at aus they predicted soft tyre window would be ablout 15-18 laps or something and bot and max went much longer if i remember correctly

    Yes Bottas was couble of times at 1:34+ in his 20 laps on the soft tyers, however the final2-3 laps were on 1:38 and 1:39

    I think Seb to go for one and Lec to got for two pit stop strategy.
    As Seb have more esperiance in nursing the tyers and defending his position, and Lec want to fly with the car.
    Remeber last year the original stratgy was two pit stops, but after Kimi famous pit stop run over a pit crew leg. It was changed to one for Seb.

    Not to worry about the rain in Bahrain. Even if it rains its usually small drizzling for very few minutes. The track design and the tar heat will not the rain to any kind of effect on the results
