Track limits will need some enforcing.

He missed the button to close the DRS. - thanks to the bump apparently.

Ricciardo flat trough copse in 7th gear, min speed 290 kmh. Entry speed only 300 though.

Sometimes its difficult to take Hamilton´s comments seriously, he is complaining , saying "he is not comportable" and a couple of minutes later he is P1 with 3-4 tenths over Bottas. :D

I wish they'd stop this red text on black background for the live speed. Cannot see anything, especially being colourblind.

He has done only 6 laps, focused on correlation data work.

I guess many years in the future we'll see some holographic track-limiting force fields like in some video games :lol:

Vettel was blinding fast at the end of FP1, doing laps on high 1.31,... sec whereas Kimi doing 1 sec. and Bottas was 1.3 sec slower ...

And also worth to mention that Vettel tested the spoon wing and Kimi a standard one ...

In conclusion, Ferrari is splitting their workload between the drivers, with Vettel testing for the 2 stops strategy and Kimi went for the 1 stop one...

I thought I noticed that both cars were running the spoon wing? I could be wrong but I thought I’d seen that
