    So far from what I’ve seen, don’t think we really are that competitive compared to others....I know it’s only practice but still

    We’ll see in about ah hours time when Q3 is over how competitive we really are

    As I've said, rude awakening. In a prober track, we will be a lot closer. Leclerc will be a beast around Imola.

    LOL Otmar is crying to the FIA officials about how the new 2021 floor regs are hurting low rake cars.

    Suck it up, Stroll. It was your decision to 'ctrl+c ctrl+v' Mercedes and abandon your old high rake philosophy.

    Exactly
    So the SF1000 proved to be a DUD....let's hope the SF21 will be much better then its predecessor.

    Vettel fans have already started, on Aston Martin and going on about how Stroll is intentionally sabotaging Vettel to make his son look good. I can't believe this.

    Ferrari expected to improve their aero efficiency with the Imola package, aka less drag more downforce.

    I suspected they would end up doing it at some point but definitely not after the first race! They truly are the worst fans, aren't they? They think he can do nothing wrong.

I for one don't care that he disagrees. The fact is that racism is an age old problem and we've had enough of it. Bernie is just one white man who has no idea what the hell he's talking about when it comes to this.
    Should he be a black man and had this opinion would it matter?

    People want to watch F1 for the drivers and racing.....not all this "kneeling, racial inequality, BLM" mumbo jumbo.

    Look at the NBA with all there "BLM, racial inequality, social justice" mumbo jumbo. Veiwership has taken a NOSE DIVE and that's because more people were at home due to the pandemic.

    People that watch sports just want to watch the sports. Leave the social messaging or political messaging out of it.
    Exactly, and I agree with his take on the matter. F1 should not be used as a platform from anyone.

    My problem (and I say problem only in context, otherwise it's not a problem at all, in fact it's gloriously far from it) is that I'm getting married in a few weeks time, so that coupled with my general busyness means I'm currently unable to muster the energy required to deal with this issue. But eventually I will, oh don't you worry about that. And when I do, don't be surprised if Greig shuts the whole thing down.

    Sounds like they are threating Greig and TSN. Lets not forget that its 2021, everything is racist, everyone is offended and cancel culture reigns supreme. Sad times.

    Lets keep TSN about our love and passion for Ferrari, not politics.

    Agreed ! Let's "Enjoy Ferrari !" this season!! Not talk about next year and the next for a podium! Just look at it this way, Merc is no longer the fastest car on the track!

    Funny how these cautions are always directed to one side of the argument and never the other side. For example, no one throws these cautions around when people criticise BLM, only when people defend it. Ask yourself why that is.

    Ferrari--> when was the last time you have ever seen an original born black person in Italy speaking Italian in F1??? I have'nt.

    Just calling a spade-a-spade.

    The same holds true for big tech with regards to blacks in the workforce when it comes to GOOGLE, Facebook, Twitter when it comes to coding and software programs.

    What Lewis wants in F1 is a HERCULIAN task......from his people and from the Manufacturers and teams in F1.
    None of you said anything about this. But when I "threaten" to respond to it, only then do you go on about keeping politics out of TSN??? Please! Rather keep quiet once and for all. Don't be like the F1 stewards that change the rules mid-race!
