Kubica faster than Russell on the same compound sounds promising
Well if you read the times in same way for Force India, Stroll isn't looking so bad as many people say.

Only seen the top times not every lap but stroll set his time on the current hyper where Perez set his on the 19 version.

Also Perez was well beaten on one lap pace by ocon so not exactly the best benchmark even on same compound

I think the difference between Perez and Ocon was actually quite small. Sure, Ocon was faster on most occasions, but to the best of my knowledge, not by much.
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

Good to see Red Bull getting some laps in while they still can.

Didn't realize they had any rules to follow regarding parts do they have to match parc ferme conditions from the race or something

Are you suggesting a rule to require the teams to run a more optimal suspension geometry, instead of geometries compromised for aerodynamics (as they currently run)?
Stop banning interlinked suspensions, cut back on the aero allowances, give Michelin the tyre tender too so we have a tyre war.
Not sure how exciting a tyre war can evolve if FIA continue to regulate compounds and deg rates ](*,)

Exactly. That’s why Mercedes raced with the pitot tubes, for example. To be able to also use them in testing and gather information about 2019 tyres.

He may be better than what we think. Or just simply because with a good car all the drivers can shine.

Goo to see Kubica doing decent lap times.

By the way, Ferrari didn´t do many laps, why?? it was the only day for Sebastian to try the new tyres and he is usually a hard worker.

They had some issues with the car [and it took some time to replace the broken parts], that's why he did only 67 laps.

Thanks Morteza!!

It seems that today they are facing some problems with the car loosing pieces, quite weird.

Leclerc has improved Vettel´s time and some people have already started to say stupid things, oh come on. :roll:

I think Ferrari is going to have problems next year with Leclerc being competitive against Vettel.

Ferrari shouldn't have problems, Sebastian will be the one with the problems. Ferrari's baby is Charles
