    I wonder if Ferrari will continue with its sandbagging throughout all 3 free practices along with Binotto still downplaying Ferrari’s pace being behind the Mercs and then come second run in Q3, BOOM, Ferrari takes Pole.....wishful thinking I know
    I'm hoping that the SF1000 proves to be a championship winning car, maybe even a BEAST!!!

    Unfortunately Binotto never lies and always tells the truth in detail. He had said earlier, Ferrari will not be a Mercedes beater in Melbourne but could be from the whole season's perspective.

    I wish for the same; however, if Ferrari have that kind of pace come Q3 you can bet on the fact that Wolf and Co. will be crying to the FIA almost immediately. Ferrari being competitive and actually pushing Hamilton = ILLEGAL LOL

    The Ferrari powered teams should protest Mercedes’ DAS system and Copying Point’s RP20. Time for Ferrari to flex some muscle.
    ~FORZA FERRARI~

    i;m with you on those points....but sadly Ferrari have lost it's "balls" thta they had from back in the dream team days....ross brown, jean todt....etc
    even Sergio M. had some balls of steel (may his soul rest in peace).....this new leader we have now....kind of spineless jelly fish...

    Italy being more or less in complete lock-down from last night may impact the Italy-based teams if revised parts or engines are needed as well as not having the personnel on site if any of them contract the virus. I don't see how it can be a level playing field if Ferrari/Alfa/Haas or Alpha Tauri (stupid name) are affected in this manner. But then our engines are deemed illegal by other teams so maybe we should just wait and see if Bahrain goes ahead with no spectators, it might as well be a virtual world championship with HAM or Max declared the winner before it starts.

    I now there is a huge amount of money, and where is huge amount of money there is no logic, just profit. All this is getting out of hand and I think they should just cancel this year F1 season!

    I think we will have the Aus GP then the next 4 or 5 will be cancelled at least.
    Forza Ferrari

    There is no F1 without Ferrari for me, I just hope and pray that Italy can control this virus, otherwise the season is a waste of time, money and effort, not to mention the health issues. If Greig is right and they cancel subsequent races after Melbourne and Bahrain, at least my blood pressure will be under control.

    Yeah but we have the Italian teams and Pirelli who are now going to find it hard to come and go from Italy.
    Forza Ferrari

    Yup F1 is ferrari...!!

    I hope this out break would get stopped. People should be safe.
    Coming to raves, yes it’s better to cancel rather than keep everyone in dilemma. As lots of amount is invested into developments & promotions etc.
    also to be noted, this year teams are focused on 2021 development programme in parallel.
    As in Italy it’s a complete shut down, most effected team would be Ferrari & Pirelli. So there’s no point running F1 in a handicapped way.

    Pirelli manufactures its tyres in Turkey:

    The grand prix rubber is exclusively made in Izmit, Turkey: the location of Pirelli's high-tech competition tyre facility. The research and development of the tyres takes place in Milan.

    Unsure of how Ferrari and Toro Rosso are going to deal with travel..

    Coronavirus related

    A member of McLaren’s Formula One team is in self-isolation at the team’s Melbourne hotel after being tested for coronavirus. Two personnel from American outfit Haas have been tested and are also in self-isolation
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    People thinking “everything is made in China, our death is also made in China”.
    Such a pathetic situation.

    "So it's not just members from Haas (2), Mclaren (1), Williams (1) that had signs of a cold and had to undergo a test...

    "There are said to be people at Ferrari and Alpha Tauri who complain of signs of a cold. They will also have to go to a doctor.."

    This was bound to happen despite the officials saying the race will run as per schedule. Human lives are more important than any F1 race/season.
