  • There is no change last week to this week




  • Is it fair to say the Ferrari upgrades seem to be dud, based on FP1, at least on this circuit anyways?




  • 3 place grid penalty for Lando Norris for overtaking under yellow flags in FP1

    Yes
    No difference that could be observed.

    Perhaps they were running different setups in their program and they will know internally different.

    Didn't Kimi win in Spa in 2009, albeit it was a pig of a car most of the time.

    Apologies you’re correct.

  • There's a small chance this FP2 could be the qualifying for the race.




  • Ricciardo with a very heavy shunt there.

    Yep apparently the shíte forecast actually continues into Sunday morning meaning qualy mightn't run then either.




  • Red Bull having more electronic engine troubles.




  • The Pink Mercedes leading the way!

    Feels like a qualy session. Perez only 0.009 off his qualy time last week




  • I'm loving this. This is like an old style quali. Just watching for lap times. The possibility of these laps being the times used for Sunday's race. Come on Perez!!

  • Yes, this is an interesting FP2, dont usually watch the practices but I'm enjoying these

    Yeah - I have despised the "elimination" qualifying since its inception. I realize they adopted the format to avoid these situations where a wet/dry track meant there was little action for most of the session, but these were relatively rare.

    Now, the first 40+ minutes of qualifying are largely irrelevant, might as well tune in just for Q3.

    And hen the engine runs they're having real trouble with rear grip. Apparently they've had 5 spins in FP2! Both high speed and low speed spins




  • Vettel in 16th sandwiched between the two Williams! Not a happy camper.




  • I dont think Seb gives a shíte anymore

    Between the two Williams and behind both Alfa's.




  • Ah lads. He was ahead of LeClerc in FP1. It's only free practice. It means fcuk-all.

    In fairness it does. We can see the Ferrari upgrades have done very little in improving the car. And the other Ferrari powered cars are very slow.

    He had a deleted lap due to slightly going outside track limits of 1:04.772. Would've put him 12th, not much better than where he was.

    Would have left him 0.07 behind his teammate rather than 0.9. Might not have mattered much in overall classification, but wouldn't have looked near as bad in comparison to the other team car.

    Well, the claim was that Vettel finishing where he did in FP2 means he's given up.

    The aero redesign was about potential for this season AND next season - because next years cars will basically be the same as this year's car. The upgrades were always going to be minimal as they're just the first iteration of the new aero development direction. The main problem is that all the Ferrari powered cars have to use a legal engine this year. Anyone who thought that the first half of the first aero package update would solve any problems was only wishful thinking.

    In other words, Ferrari was slow last week and they're still slow in spite of a few new aero bits on the car. Did anyone seriously thing the car would take a big step forward with a single aero upgrade?




  • So Red Bull look strong, Mercedes 2019 and 2020 too, Hamilton a bit off colour, and Ferrari's upgrades are duff!




  • Albon a fair bit slower than Max again. He seemed to be having issues with the car throughout FP2.

    I think he's just slower than max full stop.




  • I was watching live and didnt see that. However, as I'm WFH and watching, maybe I missed it :P

    Actually this could be the starting grid for the race on Sunday so ye it does mean a lot. If nothing happens tomorrow because of the weather then this will be where they all start and I for one would have no problem with that. As for a Ferrari and Vettel been stuck between two William's It looks terrible for Ferrari but good for William's.

    Not entirely true just yet. Sunday morning qualifying is currently also an option isn't it?
