    Charles also said that they are always weaker on Friday (longrun) and Ferrari knows the reason.
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    I must say, Schumacher seems rather average.
    Forza Ferrari

    Great team work from Carlos and Charles to get that pole, but pole hasn't done Charles any favours in recent races, so I'm nervous about our tyre deg and outright speed against the RBs, as well as our reliability. Good to see the team being proactive, a real shame that Carlos isn't there at the front to take the fight to RB and dare I say it, Merc. Another nail-biter in prospect tomorrow.

    BREAKING NEWS: PAUL RICARD WILL NOT RETURN FOR THE 2023 CALENDER.

    good riddance too. I also hated their "artistic" trophy.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    There should be a French Grand Prix but Paul Ricard just ain't it.

    I like what Ocon suggested, to use the full Le Mans layout. It's on the long side so 23 laps in the race but with some minor runoff fixes it's safe enough. Would be a great event around Bastile Day (14 July).

    Magny-Cours???? I know, I know....it needs to be built up to F1 certification (track wise) and there's no infrastructure for the people to stay and eat.

    I have many fond Ferrari memories at Magny-Cours but it would seem a bit unrealistic considering Nevers is in the middle of nowhere. Also the DRS zone before the hairpin would be on the short side to allow passing. The long right-hander (Estoril curve) in sector one would be unbelieveable in modern cars though.

    For the best racing it would be the return of Dijon-Prenois with the mighty 1.2 km straight and fast corners but that's clearly never going to happen! Would be a glorious sprint track. 52-53 second laps.

    Biggest enemies for today are obvious. Straight line speed of the Red Bull, possible contact for Sainz coming up through the field, reliability, and strategy.

    I'm also watching to see if Leclerc and Max finally come together.

    Looks like Ferrari have gone for a higher downforce setup this weekend. Look great in the sec-1 and sec-3. But IDK if that won't wear the tires down fast.

    Conventional wisdom says it should be the drink sponsored team that is in tyre trouble. Think back to 2020-2021, when Leclerc would qualify high with low downforce then chew a way his tyres.

    That's why contrary to what people say, the F1-75 isn't faster than the other cars, except if Sainz is faster. Make no mistake, this kid is making the difference.

    They did race sim in FP3 on mediums. Didn’t find any tyre deg.

    Analysis says Carlos' aid gave Charles 0.056s in the second run
    Charles strongly thanked Carlos in all his statements, exaggerating the help to 2 tenths (the video and the telemetry do not say that)
    Carlos did the opposite to minimize the importance of his help
    And to the question asked if it would not be difficult for Charles to be alone facing 2 RB, he replied that it would be easier because he would not be there and was the fastest (which is not objectively proven)
    Everyone is free to appreciate the mentality of our two drivers, what is certain is that modesty is not generalized

    I wholeheartedly agree with you. If there is one thing that separates Charles from the rest of them it's his humility and modesty.

    Charles' fans should also follow his humility and modesty and respect Carlos equally for all he does. WCCs are what really counts at the end. I remember Perez coming from 18th to get his win ! There's hope for Carlos!!

    Not a Charles fan. I am a Ferrari fan. Cheers to Carlos winning from last. I wouldn't mind it a tiny bit.

    Tyre management will be tough for all teams. But, it's slightly easier with higher df.

    I will soon have to zoom in to read your messages
    I agree with you, the track is really bad and the trophy is an example of poor French taste

    As a Ferrari fan, isn't more logical to simply hope for a Charles' win?

    The goal for the 2 remaining races before summer break is finish in front of max whomever that may be reduce the points deficit to him, and home in on him at the back end of the season, a totally doable situation.
