    Why couldn't this be the start of the season

    Let's see if Charles can respond, but I don't think he can. That lap from Vettel looks unbeatable

    I guess it was mind games, when Seb and Charles said that Mercs is so fast here

    If anybody can match that lap it should be Lec / Ham

    Leclerc 17.361 in sector 3, Vettel 17.318. I don't think he lost that much time in sector 3.
    It's sector 1 and 2 where he is far away from Vettel

    I don't understand why our pitwall is bulleproof on some circuits and act like headless chickens at others regarding the tyre choice in Q2? I don't understand the discrepancy from race to race. This has been a problem for years. Imagine now if they would have gone for the mediums in Q2. The race would basicly be dusted and done. Track position AND the chance of going longer in the 1st stint. The pitwall need to fix this for next year. OK, good thing it happens now when both championships are over. But for next year...

    Most important thing. The SF90 is now also great in medium speed corners and esses. That's the most important thing! Sleep now, see you all around noon.

    New track record for a F1 car. Seb.

    Please Ferrari, Please, no stupid team-order. Just let them race and react better to things when they actually happen.

    I think race pace will also be good from Ferrari, as they might have changed car balance overnight

    On the last lap, vettel had poor S3 compared to his previous. The same for Lec.

    Oh look, Bottas is crying about our engine. They think is Bottas, you got trashed by Ferrari in sector 1, a sector where downforce and change of direction is key. Enough with the engine and some mythical 8 tenths on the straights, after Singapore we are as good as the Mercedes in corners, if not better.

    What a 1-2 need to keep their heads and bring home the 1-2 in the race. I can't help think if ferrari weren't such idiots at the pit wall we could have been extremely close of stealing the constructors from merc.. Still not all said and done yet a double dnf for merc can change it around. Seb is on it since ferrari got the new updates in Singapore. For those who seriously doubt him need to keep the hate to themselves. I know this new package suits the car better to his liking and it won't be easy sailing for leclerc in qualy anymore. Race is a different matter altogether let them race and the pit wall should keep away from politics and try bringing in 1-2s till the end of the season. As long as ferrari wins we are all happy! Forza Ferrari!

    Lec pushing vettel... undoubtedly.
    Vettel starting to respond.
    A 1-2 finish is what we need.
    So it seems that Low-drag car design philosophy, starting to show its true form when bolted with fixes.
    Kudos to Mattia & team, staying calm n composed when things are not going in their direction.

    Looking good for next year. We have to continue to develop the engine and just a better chassis for next year will do wonders. I'm already excited by the prospect. Perhaps for a change start sandbagging during preseason testing.

    Leclerc will come good on Suzuka with experience, no doubt about that.
