But to be fair all the teams are on very soft side of tire allocation. So same for everyone.

Any issues on Vettel's car I've missed? Since he seems to not have been on the track for quite a long time now.

Ferrari seems to have initially failed with the set-up as they are making some changes. Kimi seems to have a problem with floor as well, so perhaps FP1 is over for him. No the best of the starts, but it could be worse, they could be Verstappen. :D

From Sky sports:

Here's Ted Kravitz with more on Raikkonen's lengthy spell in the pits...

"Raikkonen's problem appears to be power unit related. Whether it is an ERS problem, or ICE - we don't know.
"The session is over for Raikkonen."

An interesting little F1 fact - Baku is the only track that Hamilton has raced on in F1 and hasn't won at least one race on.
Valencia , Budh, Korea, Magny Cours to add 4 more to that only 1 list :wink:

Does anyone play F1 2020 on Ps4, Now starting our 3rd season. No assists, 50% races.

It definitely doesn't read that way though.

"The only track Hamilton has raced on in F1"

If he means current tracks, add Paul Ricard to the list then thats definitely a current track.

Why is seb 2.2 seconds off the pace despite using 2 sets of ultras and having clean laps? overheating those rears?
