Idk, Hamilton seems to really gel with this circuit. To go fast here you need the precision and fearlessness that Hamilton's driving style screams all over. Turn 4, and 11 are two of the ballsiest turns on the whole calendar. You need maximum commitment, and tiny mistake will send you off track. At least there's a little run off now, before it was gravel, and if you beached it you lost, these two turns and the middle sector are the most important from a lap time perspective.

Saturday looks good for Mclaren imo. Bone dry and warm will probably see Hamilton pull another Spain on us.
Sunday though it depends on the rain. I have no idea how much rain 0.3mm is visually.

0.3mm is a miniscule amount. That amount must surely nearly evaporate before hitting the track
There is a risk of much more though I believe

Bumpy track won't bode well for the granite front end of the Macca.

If rain, FA will smoke the field...again. :mrgreen:

Yes, the 2012 Ferrari + Alonso package seems to be the best in the rain at the moment.
