    That sector 2 time was just insane by Leclerc!!!!
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    We're still lower but the deficit is not that big anymore, only a few km/h

    Red Bull is 9kph faster on the long straight so with DRS they’re gonna be much faster

    ATM Sainz is struggling with this car. Over the time he will be there. Heís not a bad racer, just the pressure getting on him to match Charles which isnít possible.

    Max got beaten by Checo once again. Shows max is not invincible.

    Game on tomorrow. I hear Karun saying RB 9km/h faster than Ferrari on Straights. If thatís the case itís hard to keep that P1 position.

    Anyways letís hope thereís something up on our sleeve.

    Ok, I found it on F1 app, so we are some 6kph slower at max speed. I think that should be fine hopefully.

    According to F1 Live timing we’re missing 5-6 kph on Red Bull

    Hmm still it’s huge. Eagerly waiting for Upgraded ERS from Ferrari.

    Ferrari got the best engine currently but it’s efficiency is low compared to RB-Honda. That’s where RB is taking advantage in race.

    Throw in a slipstream and DRS and RedBull will pass Leclerc on the straight.....

    The thing is 320 vs 319 is at the line, that's afterward the rb is getting a big advantage all the way down to T1, but better balance/df might help on that last corner exit curb they ride.

    Lec still an animal in Q.

    If Saniz can get mega start & jump ahead RB, this gives buffer to charles to build a gap.
    I don’t think Sainz can hold RB’s given his struggles with the car.

    first 5 races we were 9-12 kph down now is 5-6 so actually we have improved. i don't thing the new ERS will do any difference. the most difference i suspect it the new dusp. which will minimize porpoising and the slicker side pods at Silverstone.

    Guys stop seeing just numbers for the top speed!!
    We are not playing cards with the bigger number wins.
    There us a lot of things that play role in a race. Mostly it's the ture degradation and if a driver can be quite in front in the start of the straight.
    Even if RedBull is in front, Lec can also pass him if he can stay pretty close in the past corner.
    The same was in Jedda.
    Ves pass ,but Lec could stay close enough and probably in another lap he could repass Ves .And there RedBull also had greater top speed!!
    So please stop always mentioning the top speed like it's the only thing that matters!!!
    It's not that they are 25-30kph faster (without drs).
    Up to 10kph more or less it doesn't play so much role if you are better somewhere else.
    And we are talking about top speed in the end of the straight. But in the acceleration zone we are better and if we keep it in the race the Bull's could only close some tenths on the end ,nothing more.
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    Hmm.. Imola & MiamiÖ we couldnít pass RB. Iíll take it as high DF setup.

    So this track is real test for our LDF package. I heard Charles saying, even with current LDF they didnít loose much in S2. Which is really good.

    But RB has that engine mode settings which they specifically use for either defensive or attack.

    On Imola and Miami we had tire problems and couldn't stay close to Ves on the slow corners/ traction zones. With drs Lec could catch Ves in the end of the straight BUT in the last corner and the exit Ves could open a gap of 0,8+s witch was enough. Lec couldn't do that (degradation- poor traction) Ves came very close in the last corner and could easily overtake him because he was almost besides him even without drs.
    In the exit of the last corner before a big straight play more role them a bigger to0 speed. Because that way you will be faster up to the middle of the straight and can keep the other car behind you .
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    Miamia for some strange reasons Leclerc lost so much time in S2 in the race so he couldn't get close to Max in the DRS straight. Not much he could do when the gap was always 0.7-0.8s before the straight

    Amazing lap from Leclerc. He knows how to extract the maximum out of a car.

    Tomorrow he better have a good race restart scenario down because it's going to be crucial, chances of safety car is high here.

    Leclerc needs to be out of DRS range or else.

    Being on the inside here his very important.

    Another barnstorming lap from Charles to take pole and as Crofty & Co kept reminding us, his pole in Spain and Monaco didn't result in wins. So I'm being guarded in my expectations, those RBs are too fast on the straights but not by too much, the race is long and SC interventions likely, but this is a race that Charles deserves to win after the last two GPs which were disastrous for him through no fault of his own. Carlos needs to back him up somehow.

    Great lap, taking pole with second fastest car, awesome. I did not see that coming. Charles is getting better and better?
    We`ll see if he can keep P1 or are RBīs just flying by with DRS.

    Mighty lap from Leclerc!

    Hopefully we can convert it into a win!

    It will be tight between the 2 teams
    The car looks solid, Leclerc is strong, so we can hope for the best
    Even Carlos seems to be picking up some pace
    On the other hand, reliability and safety car can compromise everything

    Like I said. I wasn’t worried about pole. I knew Charles had it.

    If Max or Sergio get within 1 second or Charles we will have a Ferrari 3-4.

    I’m worried about that top speed deficits. It’s possible with if Ferrari have more wing they may be able to look after their tires better but the straight line speed deficit can’t be overlooked.
    I am part of that power which eternally wills evil and eternally works good

    Damnation seize my soul if I give you quarters, or take any from you.

    Ferrari’s low-load rear wing upgrade provided ~7 km/h compared to the old wing.

    PER only gained 2 tenths on Charles in the four straights.

    The upgrade has closed the gap to RBR in terms of efficiency, so Ferrari should have a better chance at keeping the position tomorrow.

    With this pole, Leclerc is 3rd in the list of drivers with pole positions in a Ferrari.
    In front of him, there are only Schumacher and Lauda.

    That is insane...
