    And the fans will disappear, advertisers as well, TVs will not show f1 anymore, people will not go to race tracks..... And THEN F1 managers might do something.

    I will just say that I cannot believe that Ferrari has no resources, or ideas, or they don't know how to build and setup a car.
    Thus, the only explanation I have is that either the competion has more ideas, or more resources. And by the later, I mean computational resources.

    And no, don't tell me anything about fixed Tflops, or time in the wind tunnel etc. Those things can't be monitored/ policed. I might be very wrong, but this is my gut feeling.

    Believe it or not in my dream this night I saw a 1-2 for Ferrari. And when I woke up, I remembered it was only just a dream.

    Maybe this is why Bottas is getting extra support this year. At least make the sport a bit more interesting by challenging Lewis and perhaps even wining a title.

    Compared to mercs, ferrari have extra set of mediums.
    Pirelli said it’s a one stop strategy. So softs should work till lap 27 as Pirelli chief predicted. Rest 39L would be on Mediums.

    Vettel’s hint of more towards race set-up mean they are going for 2 stop strategy.

    Ham will start negotiations within mercs team if bottas beats him this race.
    Luckily for mercs, ferrari isn’t competitive. So any negotiations would be played Down.

    I took a closer look at qualifying yesterday compared to last year in Q3, pole compared to Seb (3rd both years). Last year's sectors below.

    LH: 21.525, 28.316, 26.326
    SV: 21.551, 28,555, 26.199

    This year.

    VB: 21.488, 28.040 = 49.528, 25.878
    SV: 21.284, 28.357 = 49.641, 26.611

    So last year Merc was faster in both S1 and S2. Ferrari was faster in S3. This year it's the opposite. What we gained in the first sector, we lost heavily in S3. S2 is interesting because in the video below, VB compared to SV, they are basicly neck and neck until that yellow bridge/board after 0.54. It's basicly 0.1 after S1 and S2 and all is lost in the breaking for that slow left-hander.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQHs...ature=youtu.be

    S3 starts just after it (or thereabout) and you can see how much later Bottas brakes than Seb. So that 0.3 lost in S2 all basicly comes within a few meters before/after the bridge/board. But the point I'm trying to make is that this year the SF90 is great not only in a straight line compared to Merc but also through fast sweeping corners, like S1 and part of S2. Seb is clearly ahead at that point. That wasn't so last year. But then something happens. When it comes to breaking late for a slow corner and through slow corners in S3 we're losing more than a lot. Merc must have come up with something very special. I wonder what that may be? But one thing is for sure, we have closed the gap in the long sweeping corners, and even passed Merc. But again, what are they doing in the low-speed sections?

    I'm wondering whether the start time for quali and the race having been put back by an hour may have had an effect on comparisons with previous years' times, also the fact that it's generally cooler later in the afternoon/evening so finding the tyre window is even more critical. Our car has always tended to be quicker in hotter temperatures too. Excuses, I know, but we need something to cling on to, trying to be positive gets harder with every race. We live in hope but that is rapidly diminishing.

    My opinion team must stop everything on 2019 car and put all resources to 2020 car because differnce 0.6-0.8 gap now and last years gap 0.1-0.3 get hope for battle .But now its over.

    Source? Looks like a fabricated quote, I can't find him saying anything close to the last line in the actual interview.

    The most worrying thing is they don't know what is wrong.

    By the time they fix this, the titles will be long gone. Time to focus in next year .

    if it's the same case till year end, then next year too we are in for disaster season.
    When you analyze & don't understand ….first time it can be excused.
    But analysis going on for each race, the same problem occurring & no solutions for that. Then it's issue with talent pool.
    credibility will be questioned & scrutinised.

    Ferrari, for the moment, is clueless after the SpanishGP.

    The Merc's have phenomenal speed in the corners. Both cars have good straight line speed but the corners are killing us and the Merc's are on another level.

    Ferrari should protest Merc's rear-end suspension just for clarification so we can see how it works to put it in the 2020 car NOW. All's fair in love and war.

    Otherwise, it will be the ace-in-the-hole for the Mercs when it comes to the corners.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    If we don't know what's wrong well then the season is over.

    See you all in 2020.

    Exactly. They don’t know why they are slow:. That’s the most depressing part.

    I'll give you one better... They said the last race (ot the race before) they knew what is wrong and that they will work on it. Now they don't know. This frightens me out.

    wts even more frightening thing is, even after this test if they still don't know the solution or answer.

    I am not an engineer, but I still think it has a lot to do with the tyres and getting them in the optimal working window. Whatever it is I hope they find some sort of solution.

    You think right 100%. Most every driver interview includes the problem with tires! That's coming from the driver's point of view not just fans . Pirelli is running F-1; and I don't see them as Ferrari fans at all.

    It is also worrying that it is possible someone in the organization might know and is not being heard. A chance for MB to show the change he is purported to have brought to the organizational dynamic. Just odd to me how hundreds of people are collectively scratching their heads.

    Yessir, fratello. It has a surreal feeling to it. I have confidence that they will sort it. Not as confident that it will be in time for this year.

    Fyi, for those wishing to watch FP's at the MonacoGP, Friday is an off day so Thurs., Sat, &, Sun.
    It's not how start but how you finish.
