Funny, I thought everybody knew by now that Ferrari have even a bit more downforce than Mercede but instead....Hammerfist wrote: ↑Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:14 amNegative on Ferrari being on pole. I reckon they will be more than half a second behind in qualifying. If it is closer than that I will be impressed. They just don't generate as much downforce as the Merc and that is VERy important at Silverstone. I thought everybody knew this by now? Anyways,they are going to get killed, barring some trouble with Merc. I think the Redbull might be in front of them here too, well Max only that is.
Go check Austria's s3, which only have 3 high speed corners and 2 small straights. Ferrari was slightly ahead of Mercedes and Red Bull there. Hell, even on Melbourne, it was clear from Juzh's videos that Ferrari were on par on the fast corners
But I do agree that Ferrari will be ~0.5s slower on UK. There are only 3 fast, non flatout, corners on silverstone. The rest is all comprised of slowish corners and that's where Mercedes will stretch their legs.
Mercedes will dominate, probably not as much as in Paul Ricard, but even Bottas might be safe for P2
