    FP1 just ended, once again it's very close in 1 lap pace performance between us and the other teams

    FP2, car is on rails. Also, maybe it's just me, but it looks like they are running the car lower than they did in the previous two races.

    Leclerc's change of direction through that chicane in sector 2 is incredible

    Also turns 11-12-13, looking mighty there.

    And as expected, warmer temperature helping us to switch on the tyres.

    Car is very strong in the last sector, even during the long runs

    Does anyone know if we brought new parts or did something significant to warrant a better-looking performance here?

    Small flap near the back of engine cover and we try more agressive setup

    Yup, running the car with lower ride height here. I could hear the floor scrapping against the tarmac from the onboard.

    We have zero issue with the porpoising, which is enabling us to go for aggressive with the ride height.

    Helmut Marko said that Ferrari used full power during their qualifying runs while they didn‘t but he said that Charles's longrun was impressive so Red Bull have some work to do in terms of race setup.

    Yep it's definitely an odd time for the rest of the world. That and the championship drought of the last two decades which has knocked a bit of enthusiasm out of the most ardent among us. But that will change at some point. It has to.

    Nice! Interesting that so far the aggressive setup seems to not have a negative effect on race pace. I would expect it to be compromised.

    Charles on 3rd quali lap on Engine 1 mode according to @FUnoAT . I hope during later runs he didn't use this mode

    At the end of the day who cares what Helmet thinks he knows ferrari are coming and coming fast,he loves mind games .look at his behaviour with this ongoing red bull saga.He is a trouble maker and a master manipulator.I don't really rate him like a mist in winter he just hangs around.Ferrari will be focusing on the task at hand and that is closing in on redbull and marko.
