    Even if no one is saying anything, whether officially from the team or from journomongers
    I am confident that our team is making improvements and changes CONTINUALLY without
    announcing so.

    Four DRS zones seems like trouble to me. We better be real fast in race trim to keep him out of range.

    Yes, if it is so tight as last race, then Max is going to win this, I think. 4 zones made just for RB?
    We`ll see how this ends, but I don`t like that.

    They can't this year.
    They have to announce them and even try to explain it.
    So, no news=no update

    Honestly, I can't remember anyone ever mentioning on this forum that they went to a Japanese GP since I've been a member here. Hopefully someone can help you though!

    . @GiulyDuchessa reports that Ferrari will be testing an updated floor and an updated front wing during free practice (Friday). These are the first development upgrades of the F1-75.
    Giuliano says that the updated floor might not be used during the weekend (quali/race), but Ferrari wants to see if the correlation between wind tunnel and track works. We might see this floor in Imola too.

    Four Drs zones means Max will dominate this easily.To me lets try for the best...push him and make him cry like a baby like Jeddah.Lets have in mind that Ferrari maybe its stronger on straights than we think.We saw two races where we ran with higher downforce setup than Red Bull.

    All speculation with what can or can't happen,we won't know until the cars hit the track at the revamed Albert Park in layout and surface.This will determine how suited the car is and what set up is required to maximise results.All going to plan another good haul of points awaits,let's not loose focus and remember the very deep grave that ferrari has come from.Sure its fantastic to see ferrari at the top again but I like to take it one race at a time get that out of the way,evaluate result and move onto the next race.

    Looking at the length of the straights, the first two DRS zones mainly seem to be to prevent the car ahead from pulling away and it's only the back straight where you risk getting rolled right past ya. Even zone four appears to be a bit on the short side. However, if we don't use any updates, I'd settle for a 2/3 defeating Pérez on this occasion to bring title leads to Imola and the twistier part of the season with a new floor. With the reliability issues Honda appear to be having, for Leclerc to finish in the top two basically every race of the season would be so crucial.

    From what I am reading in the press, Ferrari will wait to extract full potential before bringing in updates. It makes sense with the budget cap. Ferrari bar some floor changes are pretty much launch spec, Mercs have already made a big update in the zero pod, and this race they have new front and rear wings. RB have gone on a diet and lost weight and whatever else they are bringing to this race. Let's not forget that RB already had a pretty big update during testing, so we are in a good place for the long haul, and we can't repeat the mistakes of the past where we brought updates that didn't give the desired effect on track.

    I am also reading that we'll open the taps in Miami and getting a spec 2 of the engine in Spain along with a new floor. So all in all we should be moving up, maybe even past RB. Does anyone else get the feeling that this is a very different Ferrari, a calculating, sure and actually pretty effing polished? I am loving the season so far, and long may it continue!

    Yeah, all Ferrari has done is add some ducttape to the floor and the rod connecting it to the upper chassis. Maybe some small wing changes. Basically launch spec.

    How good is that ferrari at the top for the meare cost of a roll of ductape, now thats something,with lots of budget dollars in hand a very long season and an already fast car being opened up slowly like a wild prancing horse I would say ferrari look in pretty good shape moving foward.The organisation under binotto has found a whole new operating philosophy with the personal to suit,a remarkable turn around one would have to admit.Many f1 teams new it was coming it was only a matter of time.Well guess what the new era has finally arrived and boy have ferrari knocked the fi doors down,amen brothers and sisters.

    Sunny with a chance of kangaroos

    Supposed to be nice for practice and qualifying, there's a 50-50 chance that it rains on Sunday.

    With the barn door they use as a rear wing, I will stick to my prediction 3/4.

    Depends when overtakes take place. Last race if had overtaken with 10 laps to go Ferrari would have retaken lead under DRS. If you are overtaken 7nder DRS thenbthat car disappears it's simply faster. Ferrari have thus far had fastest package but did not get chance lastcracecto re overtake as few laps left and were spoilt by yellow flag in best DRS spot. DRS is not an issue.

    Up to this second, SAI is the only 1 in the top 5 using hard compound without trying to hard. Looking good.
    Merc looking good (slow, I mean)

    With a barn door RW, we only the last GP by 0.5 seconds and lost the pole by 0.025 seconds. And there was VSCs and yellow flags which prevented Charles from attacking Max in the final two laps.

    Downforce is king. And this track has more important traction than Saudi. So I don't expect us to be P3 and P4 here.

    Till now in FP1 Sainz looks pretty confident. I just hope he doesn't falter when it matters the most. Leclerc will improve as the weekend progresses.
    My wish: even with 4 DRS zones we must demolish these Redfools in the traction zones.

    This was a good FP1. And Sainz being on the pace from the start is good sign as well.

    Looks like Redfools are yet to fine-tune their setup. In terms of top speed they are the outliers
