Too early to judge it properly but it seems that RB should be in the mix in Hungary. Qualy and race should be exciting.

Vettel has been reporting some problems to handle the car. I hope Ferrari can mix them.

Giovanazzi and Palmer have caused red flags if I am not wrong. Both are buring their future in F1....

McLaren and Renault looking good. This weekend is their biggest change, I hope they won´t fail.

1.2 off Mercedes, of course that gap will grow to 1.7 in qualifying.

Giovinazzi is ok, but he's squandered his chances, I don't think Ferrari are thrilled to sign him.

I think Leclerc is better than him in any case

If they're introducing a new element though it's because they can't salvage the old ones, so it becomes a circular argument.
Not entirely truth. Very often teams introduce new elements because the old ones lose performance although they still work, especially detuned. So they can still use a bit older parts in races where engine performance isn't vital. Like here.
Ferrari have used four, will they need to use a fifth? I thought that's the conversation we're having. The question was will they *NEED* to introduce new component for old ones failings or fear of them not lasting race distance. In the context of four components for the year and what happens if and when they introduce a fifth.

Yeah. Gio is not showing the wrong type of consistency for formula 1: consistently crashing!

Turns 4 & 11 the fastest and most difficult corners, have been made even more difficult due to the car destroying kerbs.

Is there any indication of long run pace so far? I am watching the Italian live broadcast and don't understand a word so I have no clue as to where the teams stand...

Looks like it's going to be a very close weekend though....
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

Palmer is really working well to put himself without a job...

Just from watching, it seemed like Bottas and Vettel were evenly matched on the softs, with Hamilton's pace dropping off more than those two on the same tyres. Ricciardo and Kimi on the SS and slower (more deg, I guess) but Daniel a good chunk faster. Didn't see any laps from Max.

That's just my impression though and could be wrong (and obviously we don't know exactly what people are doing, particularly with red flag disruption).
