    I dont think so.. Vettel just said he couldn't get the car to work on Soft tires.. But he had much better pace on Medium.

    2-Stop was a better strategy for Leclerc, like the guys suggested before.

    Yeah, it seems they left Charles out to try and keep the Mercedes behind as long as possible. They should have pitted him much earlier. 2 pit stops would have worked much better.

    If that was the case, he would have let Vettel through immediately.
    Vettel lost time behind him as well.

    Ferrari probably knew the soft isn't going to work.

    There is no magic here. Merc have the pace, and starting from P8, there is nothing we could do that could somehow put Lec on podium. His race was lost yesterday.

    So he put fastest lap of the race 43.0 on last lap, but tires wouldnt last if they put them 3 laps earlier before they lost 5s? Give me a break.

    He certainly wasn't the better driver today.

    My friend that is a lot of money to throw away! At least you'll be in Monaco, BTW great city and plenty things to see, so you'll enjoy that!
    Even I am thinking of going to Hungaroring, which is by far less money!

    I thought he did, since it was glaringly obvious he needed to pit.

    is it possible Bottas could win wdc this year? at least it wouldn't be Ham getting his 6th.

    He pitted for those tyres like 3 laps before end of the race simply to get the FL. Take a break. When he pitted from Mediums to Softs he was nowhere. Gasly kept up behind him with old Mediums. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    That's what I'm thinking too. I would love that, because that would mean that Hamilton has been beaten by Button, Rosberg, and Bottas.

    Poor Charles if that's the case.
    Toto likes him if this continues he could be tempted away.:

    Perfectly said. Ferrari doesn’t have fastest car, it’s just a strong car that’s it.
    Mercs are downplaying themselves n keeping pressure up on ferrari.
    Hail to this media, even after mercs 1-2 4th consecutive finish they say ferrari is the fastest car.

    Great F1...!!!

    Both titles are gone, ferrari need to use this year for development. No more options.

    Checked results, M-B 1-2 and huuuuge lead in the WCC. Hats off, for us the season is over sooner than expected, but Ferrari seems to be hopeless, no answer to perfect M-B team. For me it is OK, more time on sundays, checking M-B doubles takes few minutes instead of two hours of pain...

    My point is it made no difference because tires would not implode, and Gasly had to do one more stop, so what where they trying to do exactly? Lose 5-6s for 3 laps not to lose it later innrace? You have to know when to pit as well, which they dont know.

    Sure, the strategy could've been a bit better but in the end it wouldn't have changed anything. He had poor pace on Softs and wouldn't have overtaken Max for P4 in any case.

    They don't have any other option tbh, use this season to solve slow corner weakness and improve at other aspects and hope that Mercedes will be slower next year. That's what Ferrari did in 2016, Ferrari spent the entire second half testing things for 2017 as said by Maurizio.

    Yeh they could pit him before bottas even overtook him. Lost over 8 seconds. Atleast try doing something man. BTW what's up with our pace on softs? We are nowhere apart from the qualy lap leclerc put we are seriously **** on those tyres!

    Kindly no vet vs Lec again.
    Ferrari team delayed Lec pit, they waited for the track to cool down so that softs will be in good condition.
    But that didn’t play into our strengths.
    Both vet & Lec didn’t have the pace on Softs.

    Damn these Pirelli tyres, changing the complexity of the races. Not the drivers.
    This is a circus show not F1

    Honestly, they need to scrap the hard tyre and soft tyre rule. Make both tyres available throughout the weekend and let the teams decide which one they want to race with. 3 stop soft tyre or 2 stop hard tyre or a mix & match...
