    How are the tires allocated for each team?

    I know it's early days and all, but this is looking really good. Not the lap time, but the fact that Charles is able to go quicker in each lap on this current C3 tyres, when the track is baking hot and nowhere near the idle race condition.

    The SF24 is the fastest car right now through turns 11-12 and out of turn 10.

    We seem to have some issues with brakes or something? Locking up every single lap.

    Steering input can give a good indication about the car on medium-high speed corners. Ferrari, AM look good, Alpine looks handful

    The difference is night and day compared to the SF23. SF24 is much more responsive and stable, and looks like the traction prowess of the F1-75 is back.

    Top speed is also good.

    That freaking Red Bull looks in a different league. Every other car is bouncing over the bumps on the main straight while the lemonade car just glides over them, like they aren't even there... What the hell. It was nice to seem them struggle at the begining though, maybe they have a car that will be hard to set up right.

    Even the RB is bouncing and looked quite unstable when it was running the C2 tyre.

    What we are seeing here is mechanical bouncing, not aero bouncing, aka the porpoising. Jolyon pretty much said the same right now on F1TV.

    I've seen F1 cars bouncing for 2 reasons:

    1) Porpoising due to the aero underneath the car stalling in the rear part of the car.
    2) Bumps on the road.

    Mechanical bouncing? That's a new one to me! What's the direct cause of mechanical bouncing other than the 2 reasons I just gave.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Porpoising is pretty much gone for every team now. That'S not an issue. The bumps though... Watched onboards and the helmets of the drivers and while others were bouncing quite a bit (Mercedes and McLaren was quite huge) Red Bull looked really weirdly smooth there. Our car seems stiffly sprung as well. Even heard that mentioned during broadcast.

    2022 pre-season testing was our best in a long time. We looked on par and possibly better than RB (until Binotto messed up our season). It's obviously still early days but RB seem to be clearly ahead again, which is a bit disappointing.

    "A bit"?

    Did you see 3rd air intake on the RB? It's besides the end of the Halo besides Max's helmet. Very interesting.

    Ferrari steering looks super smooth, balance looks good. I hope we have good top speed to compliment this

    The worst thing is it's 1,5s faster than fastest lap last year in the first session.
