    Yup, he will easily carve his way through the field and hopefully onto the podium
    ...the new SF90 in the MATTE RED, to me it looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Frankly I don't mind at all, I believe it to be a power move.
    This engine is whispered to be 1150 HP strong. If this is the case and after all this cheating talk, we need to respond in force.

    If it means two wins for Ferrari 2019, it's worth every H P !

    Ferrari are clever they never show there true hand. Would not surprise me that all they have been running a proto type for second half of the season tense the power advantage.Now that the fia has clarified a few things of late Ferrari can move forward positively for 2020 and it starts in Brazil.

    He'd better have the license to really push the engines over 71 laps if so, otherwise not putting in another Spec 3 and taking a penalty in the unwinnable race in the US was all for nought. Brazil really is a potential win for a Ferrari this season so I really hope they know what they're doing. Last year, both Hammy and Vettel ran their engines turned down to a farcial level in that race, whereas Max drove circles around them in his fresher one from a lower grid position. Not that low, of course, but still. Also, don't forget how Max almost won in the US last year using "play mode" on his engine from P18 on the grid as Kimi and Hammy circulated with theirs turned down.

    It's a huge weekend for Vettel though, because now the door to pole and track position is wide open for him.

    Exactly my thoughts! Ferrari just can't see Charles finish 2019 further ahead of their $50 million dollar driver. But; lets see how it goes. It for sure helps at least to make the race more interesting seeing Charles come up from the back.

    Does the development regulations allow this though?
    I'd imagine Merc would be doing the same if it's possible.

    Being able to test next year spec at the remaining races would be a huge development advantage for that new spec

    I don't think running the 2020 engine for two races would change anything the other teams do. Each team is already utilizing all of its resources and giving 100% to achieve the best possible results. Anything more than that is simply impossible, unless more money is invested, but there's that budget cap...

    I agree. It's gutsy and I like it.

    Thanks for always keeping an eye out for me . O k Ferrari lacks down force, their tire choices are not on the money esp. for a team that's been around a while like Ferrari. 2021 according to Binotto will be a lot better as far as strategy, engine and down force! Louis will never match Michael. It's his car ;not him that wins. Bottas is his butler. I like saying he's Rubenized ! Oh I almost forgot . Merc is hooked up with F I A . B T W your English is getting better !

    Interesting thought. If we have been doing that, then bodes well for 2020.

    What my thinking was that if they show the power the new PU has now will get other to look for different solution to get more power. But if Ferrari keep low profile will Carrie the advantage next season. Just my thinking.

    I'm pretty sure its not the prototype of the 2020 engine just some upgraded parts are integrated into this year's engine. We can call it a hybrid so to say. I dont expect anything miraculous coming from it, Charles will not lap the field and carve his way through them but it will be a good reference point moving forward to next year's engine development.

    Honda has been changing engines all season having to start further back etc. each time. It seems to be that they really got better and are now a lets say 3rd. place or better threat.
