    Some people here might get upset, but Yuki is faster than Mick.

    Those Hamilton sky tears are tasty today, even for testing.

    Hey Guys!

    This is a quote from Palmer, "Looking at Ferrari, Charles Leclerc did a very strong lap early on today in better conditions, but that's been the only glimpse of something strong from the team. But some of the long runs haven't looked so good and I think they don't look like they've caught up a great deal – maybe they're a bit further ahead than they were last year, but I don't think they're anywhere near the top teams.”

    I know that most of the British "PUNDITS" love trashing Ferrari and dry-humping Hamiltons nut****.
    Also, we aren't supposed to make assumptions based on testing results.

    But, I have a feeling there's some truth to his statement.

    What do you guys think?

    Once again Palmer is a failure in the sport and therefor can't be taken serious. The conditions weren't better earlier, they were worse because track temps have since cooled and the track has rubbered in more. He's an idiot much like the rest of the commentators mentioned earlier.

    I do not believe for a sec that they know how to build a strong car, and 2022 will not be any different

    Man, the commenting on the 2018 British GP drove me over the edge.
    Looking back at races through the 90's and the 2000's, they always were against Ferrari.
    So much for un-biased reporting. (I know its rare)

    The Mercedes looks like a handfull to drive at the limit. They don t look dominant like last year. Red Bull looks good and Alpha look like a good all around performer.
    Yuki looks awsome for a rookie. Ferrari engine is good, the problem is the medium speed corners. The S2 was not all impressive needs to improve if we are to compete at the front.

    Kimi and Sainz almost crashed during the last lap. I have no idea what Sainz was doing there and why he got so angry.

    Sainz long runs looks very good. Very consistent.

    It is only Murray Walker and James Allen's love for Michael that made the Ferrari bashing way less than it traditionally was. Once he was gone, they once again started to hate Ferrari. In 2007, they went so far that they completely laughed off Kimi's chances in winning the championship as early as the Sunday morning of the Chinese GP. When Kimi finally won the title in Brazil, they were this close to crying.

    So is Ricciardo's...3rd stint in low 1:34s consistently...on an average his every stint was about a sec faster than Sainz.

    Indeed Ric runs where faster but it was a smaller race sim and on the very end of the test with a bit better conditions i think. In the end its so furstrating to try and "decode" all this thinks laps,tires,track conditions,engine modes etc and in the you probably gonna be way off !!!!! Time will tell and we will be here every Saturday-Sunday to comment the results witch are the most certain thing !!!!

    Alpha Tauri C5 so was Rusell. Sainz was C4 same as Max so Sainz was 2nd fastest on C4. McLaren etc were 0.5 behind on C4 from Sainz.

    I was only kidding, hence the exclamation mark at the end of my post. Testing times, whether it's short run or long run, don't mean much to me.

    But I'm happy with our progress. Apart from some small issues and car seems reliable. And the Ferrari engine seems solid as well, both in terms of reliability and power.

    lol what was that? Both Sainz and Kimi are the cleanest drivers on the grid. Extremely strange behaviour from both of them.

    Kimi went wide and Sainz thought he would let him go (Sainz was on personal best lap).

    If you read anything to it :
    I took a good look at Sainz’s lap and although they did not send all the onboard, it must be said that he rode in "neutral mode". No differential adjustment even in curves where doing it improves the car sliding (T9-10 and T14-15) for example # F1Testing

    Testing was only 3 days this year and despite some negative comments about Ferrari from the usual sources, it's not all doom and gloom, Charles and Carlos did some good times in changing conditions and the car seems reliable, but I'm not getting too excited about our chances. The Honda power unit looks so strong, the Mclarens are quick (probably my least favourite team for historical reasons, along with Merc!), and Alpha Tauri must have a disguised RB16B under their drivers, with Tsunoda looking the real deal. This won't be an easy season for any team and I wonder if Italy going back into lockdown will hinder Ferrari more than the other teams. We'll get some answers in two week's time.

    I don't think Honda have great engine. RB and AT run with smallest rear wings in the pack. RB chassis made the difference.

    Nonetheless, we need to improve in the medium speed corners. We need to make the floor and diffuser work better. The drivers are going to have to make the difference.
