If you add Perez to the comparison you see the higher engine mode I think

Max on fp2 longer quote
I think from our side the balance was very off, a lot of understeer, a lot of jumping, so definitely a few things to figure out for tomorrow.”

“A lot to figure out for FP3 to be good in qualifying, but we’ll see. I didn’t expect it to be so far off, so that’s also a bit of a question mark for us.”

“We’re still P3, it’s not too bad, but balance-wise I think it can be a lot better, so we’ll try and have a look at what happened there.”

Ver had a different engineer on the radio. It was weird. It reminded me of Alonso's engineer.
Anyone an idea why that was? GP was on the pitwall (normally he works from the box in all sessions apart from the race).

Just training a backup engineer for just in case maybe? This guy also did FP1 with Jake Dennis.

Just found out it was Tom Hart, who is Max' performance engineer and backup race engineer. Was only for today.

Same with Checo btw.

I didn't see the interview with Marko, but during the German coverage it was brought up that he said that the team wanted to bring in some young engineers as well for this young driver day.

Mark Hughes on the difference between Verstappens and Hamiltons driving style in slow speed corners.

Verstappen makes a few comments at the end after an oversteery first few corners on an aborted new soft tire run, some tweaks in the garage, and a soft tire re-run..

"Now I have understeer" and "I think this is a little bit better compromise".

High fuel balance seems fine and good deg. Low fuel balance is questionable.

On low fuel their laptimes are worse than themselves in 2022 fp3

By far the best driver on the grid. Everyone else is just a tier below.

Leclerc came very close considering their car. S3 in particular

Max is in a different class for sure.To have a good car is one thing, to do it over and over for 21 races in a season without putting a foot wrong, is world-class.

Apparently Marko bet that Verstappen wouldn't even be on the front row (and Marko never loses bets), so he must know something we don't :lol: .

They also took wing off for quali expecting to have to pass people tomorrow, so I think this one came as a big surprise

Verstappen put a slower car on Pole there in Abu Dhabi both in 2020 and especially in 2021. So, today came as a surprise, but not quite...
