I saw that yesterday and was hoping there'd be more news by today. Nothing I've read says what point n the race that was displayed which might give a clue to what it means.

P1 most likely refers to Nico in first place, maybe the 3.2 was the gap at that point, and LFS6 is some reference to the soft tire with 6 laps on it? Maybe? Who knows. <shrug>

These reckon it could be a setting on the steering wheel as it has an FS6 on one of the dials

Apparently, it was information that he should have been getting from the dash but wasn't because it was not working properly. IMO if it breaks, tough luck, but oh well.

Maybe they can put some of that extra $70 million into fixing that. :]

Pat Fry was on the Sky F1 Report today and he had a few interesting things to say about his time at Ferrari. He said with Luca di in charge everything was about winning the next race. It was all next race, next race. So their goals were too short term. As a result a lot of stuff was 8-10 years out of date. It took 6 months to figure out what was wrong with the wind tunnel and 1.5 years to fix it. Only a fraction of the budget was put into simulation tools - it was going to take 7-8 years to catch up. He reckons that now the right tools are in place and a management team that are more likely to have the bigger picture in mind

I had a rough idea it was bad but I didn't realise the simulation stuff was that bad. Kind of amazing they were even competitive. I was never really fond of Fry but I kinda felt for him in that chat. It must have been frustrating as hell to work in an environment like that... and then get the blame for their failures

Apparently, this is a leaked picture of the 2020 Ferrari. The image is doing the rounds in Italy. I'm not saying it's a true leak, just posting as it may be of interest.

Oh man, wasn't this the same design of the front wing that didn't really work for them?

Well, even if it is an official image, wings and other intricate areas of the car are normally hidden until first testing at least with these mocked up pictures using fairly standard wings.

This is very true and you are right obviously, I just saw it and immediately thought "oh not again"...!

Looks like Vettel is going to be outnumbered at Ferrari 2 to 1 with the news that Charles Leclerc is going to be joined by his 19 year old brother Arthur as a tester!

Looking at his results you have to believe he was signed mainly because he's Charles' brother?

OK, not much to go on. It's red this year though.
