Still have doubts? For clarity, Manor today was FULL 5.8 seconds slower.
In FP3 Wehrlein was 0.6secs faster than in qualifying. Plus it's not so unlikely that there were still another 2 or 3 tenths of fuel in the car. So it's not that unlikely they had another second in the car.

It's a lot easier to get one second out of a bad car than out of a good car. Especially when the bad car has skipped development for a year.

Well, how much? 1 more second, like a miracle? Never mind, we will see in Bahrain in two weeks with old qualifying system.
For your reference, here are the times of those mid-field drivers who did 2 laps in Q1 (more like old quali) and NONE had a difference of one full second.
