    Hopefully. But Ferrari doing well will upset some people here. They have already written Ferrari off yesterday. Some even wanted Max to go faster.

    The SF24 is one mighty impressive car.

    Could this be real? Sainz did his run few hours later in cooler track temps, but still. This comparison looks really freaking good.

    And Sainz had literally 0 degradation even on the C2 tyres in the middle stint. Madness!

    The fastest lap of Perez was on C3 vs C4 for Sainz. Difference 7 tenths.

    Any thoughts?

    Nope. Nothing to read here. We'll know next week where everyone stands regarding this specific track.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up just yet.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    :) Looks surreal.
    Don't forget that with harder tires you need better heat transfer.
    To have better tire management you need to bring the tires in a better operating window and keeping it there.
    Since the tracks was a bit colder when Sainz did his run, this looks very good indeed.

    Fastest lap we can't guessing too much . But for long run simulation we can do that to some extends since pretty much everybody will have near 50-70kg of fuel .
    Look like a dream team is coming

    Sainz did his time in the afternoon when the track was much warmer.

    Perez did his time in the penultimate hours of the 2nd day when the track was much cooler and the air was thicker due to the cold temperature, meaning he was enjoying more downforce than Sainz.

    The C4 tyres able to hold on throughout the whole lap in that temperature is another very positive sign.

    Also Sainz did a true race sim today. And what's more, he was more than a second/lap faster than last year's RB. Verstappen's best lap last year was 36.2, and Sainz's very first lap of the sim was 36.7, with the best lap being 34.9

    Ah, I really want to see what this beast can do with Q3 fuel load and full engine power in Charles's hand.

    Guess I have to wait a bit longer.

    In 2004 we had a car so good it shocked our engineers.
    Exactly 20 years later, who knows?

    I think yesterday they weren't bothered by the lap times and did proper testing. But they wanted Charles to drive first.

    Today, they opted for a bit more performance and gave Sainz his preparation time.

    Tomorrow evening, which will be most representive session of this year's testing, Charles will have his race sim and performance runs.

    I'm afraid to read anything out of this ,because its looks impressively good for us.
    But i have some concerns bacause even Bottas and Sargeants stints looks comparable to Perez ??? It cant be RBs true pace ?!!
    But at least we look quite good for our own measures !!!!
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    The track was hotter when Perez did his simulation, higher deg...
    I wouldn't mind if RedBull's new concept has some weaknesses.
    Too many changes may lead to flaws, who knows...

    Something strange and impressive going with the SF24, I think the car could've gone much faster.
    Ferrari mentioned they weren't turning up the wick on the engine, yet their times are better than last years times from RB if I'm not mistaken. Was the track resurfaced?

    The thing is Perez did his run during daylight on warmer track. So Sainz and others have an advantage in cooler temperatures. But even that we are way faster than anybody else doing the run at that time. Sure Ferrari ain't over 1s a lap faster than Red Bull, but we don't seem to be behind. And the best thing about that chart is our tyre deg.

    The signs are quire encouraging. I don't think we can dream about a WDC just yet, but the work done vs last year has been exceptional...

    Nope, it's the same abrasive surface it had last year or the year before, but with more bumps than last year.

    I guess it down to track temperature & SF-24 car was better than last yearís SF-23.

    Majority of the teams didnít turn up their engines yet. But what I heard from Commentators is RB did turn up little bit more than Mercs/Ferrari & McLaren.

    Anyone who knows what the issue was with Perez?
    First he had brake issues, then later his engine?
