The Ferrari has launched

Just watched the video, massive rake angle on that car.

Some really puzzling aero on it as well which makes me feel Ferrari are struggling with aero still.

Re: Lewis doesn't want to share data with Bottas

The type of data Lewis is talking about is driving lines and braking points, this should not be shared between team mates. Otherwise what's the point of having a WDC at all?

Car setups, tyre strategy is more of a grey area as they have a limited amount of time to get this right.

Re: Hamilton vs rosberg. Part 265

The difference for those saying Hamilton usually does it to Rosberg is that when Lewis forces Nico wide he's always ahead to start with. This time Nico was behind and on the inside and that's why it didn't work.

it was a different set of ss tyres but I think they where a scrubbed set as they only took 2 sets with them.

it was massively the wrong call to think Ferrari could pull a 25 second gap on the Mercedes especially as the pace difference would need to be 2-3 seconds a lap before the ss went off.
