    LOL we DID have the fastest car many times last season, why do you make up so much nonsense?

    Thanks. So looks like we won't be doing a quali sim on soft tyres during p3, it's not really representative anyway.

    Mattia said ferrari used aggressive engine modes than its rivals & is expecting tough battle.
    If he says so, I believe that team is still finding for perfect set-up.

    "Aggressive engine modes" could mean many different things, it doesn't outright say we ran the engine 100%, maybe they ran the engines a bit more aggressive than they normally would run during friday practice.
    From what I've seen so far, our straight line speed is back. Also reading Mattia's comments it's quite clear the overall picture is different from Australia. I'm reasonably optimistic.

    Optimistic for sure! Seb is a 4x winner here! A pole here for Seb would really be big.

    That would be even better! If there crossing the flag 1,2 Seb if needed should let Charles pass! His life will change with a Ferrari win!

    Currently partly cloudy, chance of rain before quali was said to be about 60%

    Yeah , plus it might rain (would suck)

    I do Think it was smart to run on high engine modes in fp2 compared to the rest to atleast know where they stand when they turn it up again plus to see if theres more issues like Aus.

    Saw some analysis saying the cooling issues wasnt actually over heating but the engine is too cold lol (that would be the first) and thats why ferrari didnt try adding extra cooling on the car.


    Hopefully we can work on race pace, merc are faster on both tyres but on mediums seb is closer to bottas, on softs ferrari had more tyre wear and werent able to lap consistently like bottas.

    We have more mediums tyres left so if medium is better for the ferrari than it would be good that we saved an extra set (like how hard tyres was better for ferrari in Australia than mediums)

    Leclerc says he is very happy with his setup after fp2; Seb says he isnt satisfied with his, so leclerc could have advantage today and could actually put max under pressure for 3rd.

    we must find a way to get closer to merc and some way split them.

    Scuderia Ferrari Team Principal Mattia Binotto has explained to #AMuS that Charles Leclerc is allowed to win: "If he's in front, we will not change the order, he can drive as fast as he can."
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    I think you are right. Because, how would Binotto know what modes RB and Mercs had.

    onboard of sebs fastest lap in fp2

    no grip in 1-2 corners, understeered in the final corner

    also just about 1s before the end of the first straight his speed drops even though the revs are the same. might just be his approach to taking the corner or derating at top speeds? aw well nice we can see their dashboards at night

    Looks good, stable. Last corner, too much speed I think.

    could be or even the wind (i think they were talking about its strong effect on the turning here and timing)

    Ferrari now saying that made a mistake not pitting Leclerc and going for FL... It seemed so obvious at that point... and they only notice it now.. not good

    Barcelona feeling is what everyone at Ferrari is looking for. Hopefully answers have been found, if not then hopefully in China.

    I won't believe a word until qualifying is over where we stand. Merc are good liars! Then they get pole and LH is a God!!! He will say we worked really hard looking at the data and put in a good lap.

    Was watching f2, the drs zones make it so easy for the stronger cars to pass. Tyres also wore very quickly, those who went for early pit stops suffered heavily near the ending of the race and those whose cars had better tyre wear had strong endings picking off those who pit early

    100% , plus binotto and vettel themselves said that the data in fp2 doesnt represent true timing as they used much higher engines modes , toto was very happy after fp2 as well when they asked him about his thoughts on the timing and session.
