From what I've been reading they should be strong in 5 out of the remaining 15 races how the car is now so not many.


Which five?

The ones that have mainly long straights and not many slow corners, Canada, Austria, Spa, Monza and Sochi.

I think of the ones on that list, only Canada, Austria and Monza don't have slow corners that would be bad for the Ferrari. Sochi is actually quite filled with slow-to-medium traction corners, which is not where the current Ferrari is strong. Spa is an all-around circuit.

Well there was some guess work from me it was something that I read.

the sky coverage of practice sessions is dreadful. Crofty laughing at his own terrible jokes. probably about 50% of the talk is off topic nonsence. Constantly interrupting team radio with his rubbish. Asks people questions and doesn't let them answer fully before butting in. I seriously hate crofty as a commentator.

There might actually be some substance to Abiteboul's claims about Renault finally sorting their engine problems.

Currently 6 & 7.

Not too bad

It looks like Leclerc has put a cat amongst the pigeons?

I don't want to see him get pole but then have a grid penalty.

It was fun for a couple of minutes but I shall remain optimistic that Cyril knows what he's talking about.

I'm not getting my hopes up personally, the fact that Ferrari have been nowhere all weekend leads me to believe that Mercedes are holding plenty back, but I'll be rooting for him all the same.

Vettel making the same mistake twice shows he's under immense pressure to put Ferrari ahead or his confidence has been dented due to Ferrari being weaker than Mercedes!

Has the big increase in temperatures moved it more toward Ferrari or are Mercedes holding back?

Q1 out here has the capability to present to us shock eliminations. On such a tight & short track, getting a clear run will be the need of the hour. Q2 & Q3 will be less of an issue but Q1 will be the trickiest Q1 of the entire season.

I used to make it a point of watching practice even if it was quiet out on track. You got so much information and paddock gossip. Now its as you say it is; and if you notice, every little error due to the drivers testing the limits is met by a croft put down. I can only assume its a deliberate policy by Sky to dumb the whole thing down.

Ferrari operationally are an absolute abomination and tbh neither of their drivers are driving like top tier drivers at the moment. It's leading to them leaving so many points on the table.

How was Leclerc missing out on Q2 favouring Vettel?

It may be incompetence but it's definitely not favouritism.

people blame ferrari. Leclerc first of all messed up and missed the weigh bridge and cost himself time. And at the time Leclerc came in later on, his time didn't look that bad really. It was an unexpected improvement from other cars, not just Ferrari messing up.

TBF it's not just the team the drivers aren't doing there bit either. Vettel hits the wall and Leclerc makes an error on his first lap. It took errors from drivers and team to take Leclerc out.

Looks like Charles lost the time because he did not go to scale immediately.
