i think everyone uses the green bit of the track in that corner..its the fastest corner of the track and they need all of its width

That's not really a problem unless the track is very wet.

He's just using all of the track imo.

Don't pay him any attention. Any time he is ever in a Ferrari thread it is only to bash the team. :roll:

They don't "need" it by any means. But they do it so they can "steal" a bit more laptime

Yep, I was watching with sound off (girlfriend isn't looking forward to F1 season at all so having to watch clandestinely). When you put sound on it seems right, looked like it took the corner well.

The car looks planted, I wonder which exhaust setting/placing they used when he did this, they possibly found a way to heat/blow into the diffuser?
If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

I tried different speeds with VLC and 1x is the most convincing. The car looks well balanced. I hope they are not as bad as they say.

Im pretty sure its speeded up, the camera shake at the end of the video looks odd.
Anyway, Iv seen Red Bull, Lotus & Mclaren go through there faster so dont get to excited Ferrari boys :mrgreen:

Not bashing the team, bashing the car. It is and has been admitted to be by essentially all members involved, bad. In other words, I'm doing the exact opposite of bashing the team but rather completely and totally agreeing with them

It's not about needing to or not needing to – it's simply the fastest line through the corner.
