    Good effort from Carlos, can't really expect him to beat Max in the better car this weekend, decent recovery for Charles as well.

    And no engine blow ups
    Forza Ferrari

    It was a good for us. Now on to the next one.

    But we need to end this Red Bull winning streak.

    Such an unlucky race and picking hards didn't help.

    Now Charles will need to win four on the bounce before the summer break to get back in touch. In theory four very good tracks for the car. Can the reliability/strategy team really achieve that? Doubt it.

    Gotta give it to Sainz. He was driving better, but the lack of god damned straight line speed just killed us again.

    Carlos would've gapped Hamilton 25 seconds in a flag to flag race and we know Charles would've been even faster in cleaner air.

    I know he didn't win but I think Carlos did well, he pushed hard, was very close to max and no mistakes. Good drive Carlos! also well done Charles!

    Carlos tried his best there but we don't have the straight line speed. Charles with a lower downforce wing but no traction out of the hairpin meant that he was always too far behind when he got to the drs line.

    Red Bull have us covered down these long straights.

    Easy win lost because Carlos can't string 2 laps in a row without mistakes

    I think it wasn't the straightline speed...it was traction out of that haripin which was letting us down. Our Quali setup is our Achilles heel in race condition

    Good recovery from Charles. It's a shame for Carlos, but he just didn't have the speed.

    I don't think even Leclerc would have been beat Max today, redbull had better race pace unfortunately.

    What was Sainz supposed to do? Crash? He was trying every line and frankly, driving as good as Leclerc today. He looked good. Ferrari need him in this form the rest of the season.

    When ferrari engine blow … it was always RB who has taken the win.
    But when Perez was put we didn’t have two cars of podium.

    I think getting stuck behind Ocon lost a good opportunity.

    Also our pit stops …. They don’t get it right at crucial moment

    They should've given him mediums with nothing to lose, that would've solved the traction problem in the first five laps. Actually, Leclerc could've taken a set of softs and started P8. Might have been able to do more (P4 + FL) with that.

    They always play it safe to ridiculous degrees and it costs points. Not accounting for a lighter car wearing tyres less is just silly.

    It's an area where we had been strongest but it looks like red bull have got better/out developed us in that department as well.

    Sainz with Medium DF….. leclerc with Low DF.

    Sainz & Lec tried their best. But our pit calls were very poor again

    You would think there are some decent tracks coming for us, though we need to sort our traction out especially with the likes of Austria coming.
