Was it a coincidence that Ferrari’s run of poles – and a lower than usual speed advantage on the straights – came to an end just after a technical directive had been issued by the FIA answering a Red Bull query about whether using a pulsing electrical interference to trick the FIA fuel flow meter into momentarily over-delivering fuel would be legal or not?
It was hardly the conclusive smoking gun some were claiming. How so? Well, a look at the telemetry of the Bottas and Sebastian Vettel Q3 laps shows, for example, that the Ferrari was marginally faster than the Mercedes through the Esses. On such a downforce-dominant sequence of corners, this wouldn’t ordinarily be the case. It was quicker out of the slowish corner onto the pit straight – and it was clear the Ferrari was running more downforce than usual.
And also people on here are sheep with their bashing of Ferrari. You’re not very original.
…..but you know Vettel fanatics and logic don’t go hand in hand.
I bet he will use his car against Charles like a weapon, because that’s how his brain works.
