    True dat. Let's see how the race pace is tomorrow.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Nicely managed, great job. Now let's just leave RB in our dust in the race and hope RB eats their tyres again. Little bit worried the tyre management may switch like it did from Melbourne to Imola, but hopefully we got the setup right.

    Done all we can considering the circumstances. Don't know if we have the race pace here but it was never going to be easy with those two straights against the red bull

    BTW Sainz Q2 time was 1.31.081 , which was faster than RB’s Q3 best times.

    2 RedBulls vs 1 Ferrari.

    RedBull will split tire strats. for tomorrow against Leclerc provided there's no reliability issues for both teams.

    Great team effort, but I still believe that he would have got pole anyway. Carlos helped Lec in 1 sector ,but Lec managed to better his times in all sectors while Max didnt

    Charles is the only native French speaker I'm ever close to being able to understand based on my English and basic Italian alone I'm told the Monégasque/Nice accent is very gentle.

    So are we using the low-med downforce rear wing or high downforce wing? Quite a huge gap to RB in terms of top-speed.

    They are well above everyone in terms of top speed. Everybody close to eachother except them.

    Yep, I don't think we're slow in the straight, we hit 333kph, just that Red Bull is absolutely missile on the straight.

    Leclerc will be vulnerable in S2 against RB going tomorrow.
    It’s all about he manages his tyres in S1 & S3, where might have advantage.

    I would love to see Melbourne again, with Charles being a pitstop ahead and with such a low tyre deg that he could set FL with 20+ laps old tyres.

    Yep ,it's all gonna be down to tire management. If Lec can use them well without drop of performance/grip ,at least not worse then Ves, then he would be fine. In race we will have smaller differences on speed and if Lec manage to clear a gap in tighter sections, he will cruise away!!

    Just like the last 5/6 races, our main rival for tomorrow's race will be ourselves, not Red Bull and their top speed. Ferrari acted as the Santa Claus for Red Bull, freely gifted them points and wins.

    The only way RB can keep with the F1-75 is by running low downforce. If they ran with the same aero config, they will still be slower in the corners while losing out massively on the straights.

    2 RB’s vs 1 Ferrari. It’s always throws good strategy options for chasing team.

    Hope Sainz gets to top6 as quickly as possible & late SC would help him. Straight line speed of Haas/Williams/Alpine/Alpha T is very good.

    Agree… but let’s see how it goes. We need a win here without any trouble, that gives massive confidence for leclerc & team.

    I want to see a dominating race by Ferrari & Leclerc just like Australia without any problems. As every other race we had some or the other problems either it’s strategy or reliability.

    Leclerc: "I'm more confident about our race pace than I was about our Qualifying pace. I have struggled with the one-lap pace this weekend, with the balance of the car - up until Q3 where I managed to put everything together. Carlos was great, he helped me quite a bit."


    leclerc is keeping us interested.

    Yes, for once Sainz was used by Ferrari like Perez is by Red Bull, and it paid off. Hope the turn learn from it.

    Won't lie. Red Bull's will be tough to defend against on the big straights in sec-2. Ferrari seem to be going for a higher downforce setup.

    Hope Sainz can come up through the field and get to 4th, providing he doesn't get in a crash or suffer reliability issues.

    Ferrari are making max very very nervous ferrari have nothing to loose considering this was a binotto said virtually a non championship year .Pile the pressure onto Max and he will crack that Dutch oven can not take the heat.if max goes to hard chasing Charles which is what he will do providing he leads after turns tyres will go off,max can be aggressive on tyres regardless if he is being followed or chased down.Defintely red bull are under the pump.Carlos will play a big part as the race unfolds.As always expect the unexpected.The pole numbers are amazing .
