    It's too early.
    Yes it looks good, but we will see. If the difference between S1 and S2 is what we see, I don't expect any DRS problem tbh, provided that we will not have a SVC or SC.

    Tell that to boner Latifi, he’s always bound to bring either the VSC or full SC.....lol

    Porpoising may be a bigger issue over a race distance, on cars and drivers, hope it can be dialled down a little in the interests of both. A slight chance of showers on Sunday?

    Niels Wittich has announced the removal of a DRS zone.

    For safety reasons, DRS Zones will be reduced to 3 for the remainder of the event.

    Wittich: "DRS detection 1 will be moved to before Turn 9, DRS activation 1 will be after Turn 10, DRS detection 2 will remain unchanged, with the following activation zones will be renumbered accordingly."
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    So is it that the DRS on the new long straight has been removed...where we were porpoising a lot?

    Yes, the porpoising needs to be addressed for Ferrari.

    SKY f1 still crying about what happened at Abu Dhabi.



    Kravitz asked Wolff: Will you give justice to Lewis Hamilton for what happened at Abu Dhabi???

    Wolff's response: Wolff: I think it's too early to write off the championship. You can see that with a double DNF that Red Bull have had at the beginning of the season and you could see last year we didn't have a competitive car at the start of the season and Silverstone we unlocked the potential.

    Carlos improved on 12 laps older soft tyres. These tyres are not dropping off.

    Maybe, let's see what qualifying brings for Norris and Alonso.

    there's a chance the removal of that DRS zone may hurt our chances for pole, but I think it helps us as far as the race is concerned.

    It would be nice to be the quickest on a Saturday, but it's not the end of the world.

    Did we messed something up with the setup? We were not struggling this much with bouncing in previous GPs... And now RB is faster in S3 as well? Umm... I hope the beast is yet to be unleashed in Q2 and Q3.

    What the hell did I just watch? Latifi and Stroll, the 2 worst drivers in F1 in all their glory I guess.
