DAS is too much!
Are you going to keep this up for the whole of the season? It's already getting boring and we're only in race 3. :roll:

DAS is guaranteed.
Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

Looks like everyone but Max and Perez is getting lapped by the Mercedes on Sunday, if they decide or have to push.

Just 2 facts after FP1:

1.Mercs are faster down the long straight some 13-14km/h (compared to 6-7km/h in Austria both races), on average, compared to RBR;
2.HAM did his fastest lap of the session on 10 laps old hard tyres which btw. are designed to work in a hot track, not like a cold 26 degrees Celsius one ... that`s how much energise gets those tyres from the chassis and speak volumes about their downforce levels ...

Need to see how this race and maybe the Silverstone ones do, but this could turn out a little bit 2014.
If it does, you probably just have to tip your hat to Mercedes for a very impressive job with the car.

It's quite clear RP and Merc used this session as a qualifying prep given the rain.

Horner also confirmed RB was trying out new things on the car, so their pace is not representative.

It's too early to tell, and I don't believe it is a clear representation of the real picture. RBR too slow on the straight shows that they're running with their lowest power settings for sure. I think it's gonna be close at the top, probably with the engine modes Mercedes will have the advantage, but I'm not counting Max out just yet.

RP looking good as expected. Ferrari looking more hooked up which is also expected for this race.

Yeah, there is that but it's a nuclear option and means you can miss good stuff from someone you've ignored.

Apart from DiResta who is a friend of Vettel's and usually stands up for him. Usually whilst also blaming Hamilton for everything as he doesn't like Hamilton at all. :lol:
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Slippy F2 practice is fun!

It's very impressive that Mercedes-Benz appear to have a large advantage. They have built a superb car. =D> =D>

The Merc mic placement sounds horrible. I don't know why they moved them.

Looks to me like RP is running less downforce. Perez was even or very close through the first part of the lap and then it all fell away at the end through the twisty bits.
