    And Its Monza

    New this week : No Qualification Modes .
    edit : Ferrari bringing new aerodynamic package made specifically for the Brianzola track. No sure if this will help

    old this weekend : Good Chance of the same Results again this weekend . Unless Renault can Throw something more into the mix . The less downforce required , the closer they are to the front .
    Will Racing Point re discover the speed from the early races this season .

    Decent chance of a Ferrari being eliminated in Q1?

    I think the Pink Mercedes might have a (Racing) point to prove this weekend, and as much as we mock Stroll constantly he has had a front row start here.

    While Ferrari are in the dungeon of performance, they have invited 250 medical professionals as a show of thanks for their work during the countries torrid time with covid.

    Nice touch.

    Havn't those medical professionals suffered enough without having to see a Ferrari racing team on life support!

    Ouch!

    I am very interested how this one-strat mode thingy is going to work for some of the teams. Who is going to decide to max out their engine to see if they can qualify higher, get race position, and run the bones off the car until the end of the race. A fresh engine should survive a whole weekend...so maybe that's a chance for the lower mid-fielders to take one weekend and go all in for some points?!

    I’ve been meaning to ask for ages.

    The list of driver on left hand side of screen - what does it mean when they highlight the box white beside their name and what are they doing when the order of names changes?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,830 ✭✭✭ Joeface


    fp1 red flag , Max V , off into barrier .Kept the car running , Front wing damage .

    White = on track
    Green = moving up the order having improved their lap time
    Red = moving down the order as someone else has improved their lap time
    Grey = in pits

    I think the order is based on sector times for those drivers who have not recorded a full lap time

    You just can feel sorry for Ferrari engines


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,830 ✭✭✭ Joeface


    Track limits could be a factor in qualifying this weekend . Riccardo , Albon , Vettel having laps deleted . Albon I think has the most .
    Alpha Tauri Again showing pace. Little bit better form Ferrari .

    Thought Monza was to be a good circuit for Renault

    Was hoping Ricciardo would be pushing Max for 3rd, coming into the weekend I thought it was the mostly likely way to see racing near the front

    They thought that too. Hopefully they will do better tomorrow and Sunday. Would love if Ricciardo got 3rd as at least it would be something new.

    Iv since seen Ricciardo had a time good enough for 3rd that was deleted for going over track limits, depending where he went over there mightnt have been much gain so maybe it was quite close to a real time

    Qualifying day.
    Wonder if we'll see a repeat of that farce we saw in Q3 last year with slip stream gate. Just seen that it happened already in Formula 3.
    Surprised there hasn't been any form of instructions from race control to avoid it happening again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,412 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    The Mercs don't need to slipstream so I'd expect they will go out with 3-4 minutes to go in Q3 and out of the way. They'll meet traffic on the hot lap though. I'd be looking to follow them around.

    Does it apply to FP3 as well?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,598 ✭✭✭ bennyx_o


    Supposed to buy no one seems to be adhering to it


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,830 ✭✭✭ Joeface


    They have new track limits as well, wheel must remain inside the white line .

    I'm a bit lost with this maximum time rule. Is it in effect for FP3? What is the penalty for not adhering to it?
