Ferrari looked great on the long runs today IMO. Probably best of the midfield.

Quali pace was a lacking a bit to McLaren and AT but Charles seemed pretty confident that they have a handle on it. I'm thinking both cars land in the top 8 tomorrow.

I think traffic was a large factor in those low fuel runs. But the race simulation pace was quite good - better than the rivals. 5th and 6th again will be great for the team and championship, although still disappointing Ferrari will most likely go all season without a win, again.

Might’ve been the worst quali I’ve ever seen from Leclerc. Just couldn’t put a lap together.

They will have been very short on time for inspection being on the road so long. Suppressing really there have not been more examples in other teams too

It’s going to be a tough race for the team if Sainz has a penalty.

Don’t know how much race pace will help on a course this difficult for overtaking.

Norris will be moved up to 4th if Max and Bottas receive a penalty as well.

At least they managed to build up that buffer at the last 2 races, we can afford a poor race

any idea how Ferrari thinks that Leclerc can start from his original position when rules say "Any driver whose car has a change of survival cell following the start of the third free practice session (P3) must start the race from the pit lane"?! If they really change the chassis, there's no way to avoid it.

as I just read in Italian media, "The FIA already yesterday has given their 'okay' to replace the chassis, as long as the curfew is not broken." They menaged to do so, so no penalty for Leclerc.

Edit: the rule I quoted above was deleted in the July update of the regulations. So that must be the reason it's allowed

Both cars doing a ton of tire management. Wonder if they're planning a one stop?

Great recovery race for Charles. Both did well to extend their stints and really push hard at the end.

Didn't have the pace of Lando's McLaren or the Alpines but it worked out all the same. 40 points clear of McLaren!

If you are happy for this ferrari mediocre race, I am glad for ya. Still not capable to set up perfectly the car and little improovements. Not ready yet to match title contenders. Need at least one year more
