So what will you guys say is the order of the top three and why.

Mr order is:

Ferrari
Mercedes
Red Bull.

Red Bull's long run pace looked a lot slower than Ferrari's and the renault engine seems to be behind the other two's so I'll put that in last place for now.

Mercedes look good with their reliability but their long run pace is in the air since its testing and they normally run with more fuel.
I'm putting them second because their updates didnt seem to work as planned so I think they'll be a couple tenths behind once they turn the engine up.

Ferrari on top because everything is working. Vettel was sand bagging and Kimi said they could go faster.
Updates seems to work as well.

Mercedes

Ferrari

Williams 

 

 

Mercedes in my opinion was going slow for the tests and hiding their potential. For Q3 in Melbourne they will be up to 0.5 seconds ahead of Ferrari.

 

Ferrari second, because I don't trust their progress. Usually they look good at testing, but can't prove it in races.

 

Williams third, because the new regulation helps them a lot. They can cover their weakness in the corners now. Their drivers are a disadvantage imo.

So after some races and with the right development Red Bull should take their place.

Merc-Ferrari

RBR

 

Tag Heuer, obvs being the variable keeping them there.  Still not sure where Merc and SFM stand.  Both were probably sandbagging and won't be showing their hand till the FP's.

 

RBR will fancy the high downforce circuits as usual.

A nice selection to choose from! 

 

Suzuka gets my vote!

JA seems to think Ferrari is ahead and after reading, it's a logical conclusion from the data.

I hope he's wrong though.

Yup. Hotels are very difficult to book as well. Singapore is the best venue for attending a grand prix. The hotel I stayed in before was only a few hundred metres from the track. Great trackside entertainment, too.

Abu Dhabi would be pretty cool to visit as well, but would probably be too expensive.

Yeah. Around $300 a night. Imagine I was forced to rebook my flight and stay for another night just to meet the drivers. sick.gif

Spa I'd like to visit. A few friends of mine attended last year's grand prix... heard it was hell to get out of the track after the race. Stuck for 5 hours or something. sick.gif

Lewis was on used tires on his quickest lap. In P2 they were both on UltraSoft, as far as I know. Couldn't watch it, because it was at 3am local time :lol

 

On the long runs Mercedes was more than 1 second ahead of RedBull and nearly a second ahead of Ferrari. 

 

 

I expect Williams to be more competitive on Saturday than today.

 

Races in Bahrain and China will be awful for Renault-engine teams and especially for McLaren...

That's why I watch every race with my timing app! 

 

Anyway... Ferrari close, as expected!

 

McLaren are so lucky to have Alonso. 

Surely Stoff has more... had to let Alonso pass.

 

And :{ @ Jolyon's attitude.
