fast in a straightline if nothing else but it might mean we lack downforce compared to the slower teams.
interestigly redbull is the slowest like last year and is likely to be much better in the corners than us

Also fuel consumption might alter too. If you are intentionally adding ballast just to slow down laptimes it is ridiculous. The whole balance of a car might shift,the cars might behave in a funny way. These are Formula1 cars & very sensitive.
They need to maximize the potential & speed of the car & work on its setups. Addings kgs of ballast might throw a completely different scenario. All the data becomes meaningless.
