Are the gear ratios the teams run in pre-season testing required to be the same as the one they will use during the season? I was under an impression that it's possible to use a completely different gear ratio in testing

Why would the rules specify the shape of the sidepod inlet (something Ted Kravitz is saying).

I bet the rules specify maximum size and leave the rest to the teams.

They don't. At least not in the way Ted is saying

The Ferrari still looks the most stable so far, the Williams looks quite tidy as well. All the cars look horrible to drive though to varying degrees, understeer in slow corners, oversteer on corner exit.

Nice to see power oversteer on corner exit, although it's not what the teams want to see.

The cars are clearly far less stable at lower speeds than previous generations of car. We should see a lot more mistakes this year I think.

It's possible that a stable platform that allows the drivers to push could find you more speed than an outright faster, but more unstable car.

It's been suggested that Haas will be allowed to run on Sunday to make up for time lost in delivering the cars.

Think Monaco GP will be spectacular to watch

Middle sector times give a good mix of high speed (the esses), low speed (the hairpin and turn 10), acceleration zones. I think it’s the most interesting comparison we can make in such early stages.

Does porpoising have any relation to bumpiness of the track ?

Finish line speed is a good mix of traction/power, but teams might not be running full power...

Bumpiness on track is there for sure, and can be seen by darker marks on track. Cars always undulate over an uneven track surface, but don't always porpoise. Porpoising happens on its own, but bumps on track can contribute to porpoising.

certainly does if people confuse the bumping with porpoising. But I would say yes, surely bumps at high speed could initiate some porpoising at high speed.
