Ferrari look like they're back to being the 3rd fastest car like last year.


Wingcapx

We've come full circle. Like a race track.


ramonoodle

Like Nascar?


rthehun

Yes, an oval is a circle.


zeromadcowz

Nerd hat on: An oval is not a circle. A circle has all points equidistant from the centre. 🤓


ArbenGM

In other words, it's the other way around, a circle is an oval.


Xelisk

Like sheep.


788pack

I think like this could be really fast, and this is why they are not really doing it.


Cergal0

That's what Ferrari does best, upgrading a car from race winner to podium contender.


we_are_checking

here me hoping ferrari is sandbagging but charles saying his Tyres are done after 4 corner is worrying..


Alfus

Nah Ferrari has a huge tyre deg issue after TD39, they could really lose P2 with Merc.


we_are_checking

yea im keeping my expectation very low, And after race i will make sure not to touch any social media.


tipytopmain

Also they were complaining about bottoming out creating stability issues. Not a great sign.


pawlikandr

I certainly agree to this as well, because the ability is totally more than what we have seen.


LosTerminators

Seems as if Ferrari's best hope is to take a 5-6 and pray for Max to win


Firefox72

Your missing the galaxy brain play. Give up 2nd in the WCC and gain more windtunnel time. /s


Takis12

They give up 2nd place this year to get more windtunnel time that will help them finish second place next year😂

[удалено]


drabels

I don't really think like they're going to do anything like that by sacrificing that.


ACPBTC

They are definitely going to get it. And this is the reason why everyone likes it.


aamgdp

Really beneficial for the next year™


asistencian

I completely agree to this, like it will be really beneficial for them in long term.


According-Switch-708

Elkann would blow a gasket if Ferrari ends up losing P2 in the constructors.


mettes1991

What are they actually doing is I'm not really able to understand, like, how it is even better than that.


Master_Jee

Debatable. Prize money > wind tunnel allocation


salosrs

Not for Ferrari


xnetex

I absolutely agree to this as of now, because this is not what I was expecting.


anothercopy

Not when your parent company is loaded with cash and sponsors.


Single-Sandwich1035

Yes but given how strong the start of the season was for them, it would be incredibly embarrassing if they don't even secure 2nd in the constructors. They would care about that for branding


qac1991

They're not really branding anything like that, but they're absolutely going to secure it.


oragle

Exactly, the money is nice but replaceable, windtunnel time isn't


hfeeki

If it is going to be like that, then they have already done this kind of things like that.


Icy-Operation4701

Drivers and teams should always aim for the highest possible position. If there's no incentive for that, or worse an incentive to tank, the rules need changing


anothercopy

Sure. But the reality in F1 is that the only place that matters in #1. Nobody cares who is the runnerup.


Icy-Operation4701

That's not reality. The reality is F1 is a cutthroat sport and drivers care about beating everyone. If it's not 19 drivers than at least 18 drivers, and so on. Both teams and drivers are highly competitive. None of them wants to come last, just because they were out of contention for first.


Arumin

Do don't care about price money, they already get 100 million because they are Ferrari.


Disastrous_Animal_34

Pretty sure Ferrari’s yearly bonus payment is closer to the constructors champion amount than the difference between 2nd and 3rd. That’s on top of whatever their prize money is.


kbsalerno

I don't really think like it is just about the price when you're something, whatever they say.


404merrinessnotfound

Only for the smaller teams


ryannestrick

Completely agree to this. This is not just about the team or something like that.


crystalbc09

I'm just going to allocate something like that. Then it is eventually going to work really nice.


EvgenFed

But the fact is like it is very fast, and this is the reason why I also like it.


Exploratorum

What good would that do for them?


Syntax_OW

2nd in constructors.


Saulyak

They can do everything like that. But this is not going to be constructed by them.


faratto_

2nd on the wcc championship


shad1096

They are definitely going to get a better position right now if they want.


Exploratorum

If ver ánd you er finish in front of them?


_MartinoLopez

Yes.


Alfons2013

Certainly agree to this as well as most of the people have seen these kind of things.


elbeldos

But they have already done that in front of them, then it would have been totally different case.


perfectx6

This is absolutely one of the best thing I see. Like, this is really good as well.


wwwwsuda

Start as well, but I'm not really sure about it yet. If they are going to get that,


paulbalaji

Obvs only fp3... But scenes if Ferrari actually finish 3rd in a two-horse race


randomkid19

The Tottenham Special


Stgmtk

Upvoting and I hate it...


belaerixx

I also hate it, but the fact is it is really one of the best.


paulbalaji

https://youtu.be/JxHdytQZ3ds


sashanastya

What does that mean? I mean, we can absolutely see these things are really good right now.


simfoe

I'm catching strays everywhere man


botca

I agree to this right now, because everywhere it is like that only.


oHOTSPURo

Dammit


johncoin200

What is the even matter right now? Because I'm not really able to get this.


randomkid19

Do you follow football (soccer for americans), if not then I'll explain it to you, Tottenham are perennial chokers, they haven't won a title in ages, the closest they came was in 2016 when they were in thr title fight till the penultimate week but infact they choked so hard that they finished p3 when otherwise they were p1 or p2 all year long and the team which finished p2 was infact their cross city rivals


spurdomene

This is more like it is not less than what we have seen now.


RallerZZ

Hey Ferrari, your 2020 is showing.


Aratho

They said they didn't seriously upgrade the car since summer break because of cost cap. It shows lately.


Tim0110

Red Bull didn't upgrade either.


Marco_lini

But they apparently found 20Kg in the car since the first race, Ferrari (and Alfa) was light from the beginning.


Icy-Operation4701

Ferrari wasn't light from the beginning. Just lighter than RBR and Merc. And Alfa was the only team that was on target, so seems a bit weird to mention them in the same sentence (as that implies they were on the same/similar weight).


Tim0110

that's true, but that was already the case in Spa I believe.


Marco_lini

Yes, they brought a huge update and probably learned more and more with minor updates along the races, RB was always good car development in the late season, which Ferrari managed to do once successfully back in 2012.


bad_adolf

It actually look like this is just the starting only in the definitely going to get better in future.


mhamilton79

This is done very good, actually. And I think, like, this is more about how everyone is going to see that.


splintersailor

20kg of sandbags


oxytite

I actually think like they can certainly change a lot of things in that kind of concert.


jikiang

Absolutely right about it deserve a place here, and everyone is going to love it.


AnilP228

Yes, but Ferrari have also been massively hampered by TD39 and have turned the PUs way down. The car is a shadow of its former self.


XBollockTicklerX

Lol


tapatumas

We certainly have to attempt a lot of things. And I think, like it is one of the best thing.


hevlok_vitinari

A lot of things are like that today, and we don't really notice them in real life.


professorpious

I don't really understand it. What is change required to do that?


01blkcat

Dexter need to get this kind of sponsors more right now.


AceMKV

You mean 2018? Where they failed they development battle again?


atarian88

I'm definitely going to take a note of notes from that. It actually look like a really good thing.


dalledayul

Checo heard Jenson talking shit


Alfus

Really wondering why Alpine wasn't having a good quali pace on the softs, also the fight between Alfa Romeo vs Aston Martin is still ongoing, and the fight between Merc and Ferrari.


dnma911

This is not just like things like that, only to be honest. It's not going to happen.


Lebz95

Ferrari will achieve the FEAT of losing the championship to Mercedes


cdecker88

The matter of the fact is like that only because they have already done these kind of things.


Electrical_Flower_26

Ferrari is saying goodbye to P2 in the constructors championship.


242turbo

That's fine, they get more wind tunnel time. Charles saying goodbye to P2 in the drivers though....


fs2k155

This is almost perfect right now. This is more like how they are carrying it.


JPA-3

the Alpines have been super close all weekend, it is going to be fun and ugly lmao


rocker15621

They are absolutely getting a lot of performances like that in the future, to be honest.


Uyahla

Has Ferrari really regressed this much.


LackingSimplicity

Sandbanging for extra windtunnel time.


faratto_

Binotto said that they didn't upgrade the car because of the cap, others (Horner said that 6 team will overspend) probably breached the cap in a big way, so not a big shame IMHO. Ferrari (even if we know they're a living meme) has a brand to defend, others minus mercedes (and maybe AM) don't


emre23

>Horner said I wouldn’t take that too seriously


Wingcapx

I feel like this comment is evergreen


lleuku

Write your absolutely right. I don't really understand it. Clap during this kind of rhythms.


benzino909

They're definitely doing that. And this is more like it is going to play along.


Exploratorum

Checo doing what he has to do. Lets hope he can repeat this in Q3.


MrHyperion_

19 points difference between Ferrari and Mercedes. If Ferrari finishes 5-6 (the lowest realistic), they score 18 points. Mercedes would need 37 points. 2-3 finish is only 33 so Mercs need to win and the other car 4th or higher, 3rd for FL safety. If Mercs doesn't win and Ferrari doesn't DNF, Ferrari gets 2nd. E: math error, edited now


RoIIerBaII

5-6 lowest realistic ? Oh boy 😂


Not_RAMBO_Its_RAMO

Lol Ferrari 'bout to show *another* new strategy...


prostogreez

This is very simple kind of fact that people need to understand that clearly.


speedermm

They would not have thought about it. It was not really made that much.


emre23

5-6 is 18 points


MrHyperion_

Oopsie


jukbtc

I have already liked it, and this is why I think they have certainly asked for the links also.


eeshanzaman

Very happy with Ricciardo's performance.


aneiq_1

He’s the standard 4 tenths off norris it’s just the mclaren seems faster here


shrtrnd

No doubt about it. This is more like we are giving a different kind of mindset.


eeshanzaman

Maybe because of the new floor update? What do you think.


killver

There is no new floor update.


its_omkar2753_

Ma boy is flying

P_ZERO_

Keep the negativity flowing


Dutchie405

Hopefully he doesn’t crash in Qauli


Otter269

Looks tough for Ferrari, looking good for lando though 👀


outride2000

When Checo does badly in FP: och he can't reach max When Checo tops FP: hey it's only free practice


Jeff127007

They will not be doing it right now. And this is the reason they are actually allowing it.


volpee-vu

Top 8 looks like a copy and paste from the 2021 season


erakkoKirahvi

Exactly I was trying to ask and make sense out of it as well. But that doesn't really matter. I see.


Choice_Awareness

its so sad that ferrari really have given up and “focusing on next year” again we all know how thats gonna go without any fundamental changes to the structure and function of the team.


Visionary_Socialist

Ferrari are at risk of bottling P2 here. If Mercedes go 2 and 3, that’s 33 points. Ferrari would need 14 points, the equivalent of a 5-6 finish.


jshawn4752

Don't really understand the piglet with Hindu questions there. Actually asking.


lovereading20613

Interesting to see what the long runs say Seems like they were out for long time


wiesknl

I know right even I play a lot of instruments, and this is eventually one of the best thing I have seen.


siva-pc

Latifi ends the season in style, just like how he started


fullercr89

There are a lot of people who are actually going to tell people to do that.


PM_me_British_nudes

My boy Seb going out on a high


fhnfvjyjd123

I don't really find any simple guy who is actually going to like it.


odesauria

It's baffling that they're all within 2.3 seconds of each other.


wasight3341

They're definitely going to be very proud of that I can already see these things.


rafaalvfe

Vamos Checo! He’s ready to take that second place on the driver’s championship (without any help 😎)


pioneerSolid3

I was told yesterday that Checo was done, So... what happened? D:


According-Switch-708

Wait for quali.


cheezus171

Okay. What are we waiting for now?


gbill52

I completely bet on this. And this is why I think like it's actually going to be best.


SecretTrading

What does that actually mean? I'm not really able to understand it.


mtech85

So I'm new to F1. What do the lap numbers mean? Just how many laps it took to achieve those times? Less is good? More is bad?


JesseLeeHumphry

It's just the number of laps they ran in the session. It's not really a huge indicator of much; more laps could mean more data gathering / race-pace testing, fewer laps could mean constant setup changes, or they could mean none of those things at all.


NoTrollGaming

Generally isn’t good or bad, just means how many laps they did during the session.


mmcardvn

They certainly can do something better in that. But eventually, this is one of the best.


sergejjsidk

This is more like they have already done these things a lot of times in the past as well.


R1SKbreaka

Missed it. Did max give Checo a tow?


tr0pecs

nope, did it on pure merit


fdgefged

Absolutely blown my mind as well. And this is why I'm really liking it, to be honest.


el12ro

This is not really going to be something weird. This is what has already been done.


PM_ME_MY_FRIEND

Latifi never disappoints 😊 Mister consistent


Quicksilver21548

Yes, this is absolute thing I was thinking about as well. Like, why they didn't even hear it for the first time?


clapclapJH31

I hope Leclerc loses to Perez by 1 position by gets the fastest lap so that Max not letting Checo through costs them.


cheezus171

At the places they'll be finishing this race 1 position will 100% be more than 1 point


sedefsavas

I agree to this completely. Eventually, we will get better in the future workshop. Ha


kiminoirumachirage

It looks like it's i need a team Racing Point Pérez time, or at least i hope it is


aguja2013

Update just about the music only then it doesn't really matter rise of now.


chicasparagus

I’m rooting for Lewis


Aredditor1983

Vamos Perez !


TheKeviKs

No joke, Mercedes taking 2nd place in the WCC seems more and more possible. It would be the last nail in the coffin for Ferrari
