https://finance.yahoo.com/news/red-b...131742160.html - this is a link to autosport article about Red Bull's Helmut Marko saying Ferrari and Haas were having cooling problems in addition to setup issues, as they have determined via data. I mentioned this upthread based on sources and am providing a more mainstream cite. I'd say Helmut Marko 's quotes and Red Bull data is legitimate.

FURTHER, he eludes to the turbo and hybrid tricks Ferrari had last year and which the FIA cut off, which I mentioned last year after Ferrari performance fell around Monza (after a smug Ham knew they were getting yanked and grinned through an interview talking about how fast Ferrari were)

The time difference makes this race occur at a great time.

@Alfanut ... that stinks, but this happens a lot down under -- no? You're well into Monday mornings when the rest of the world is doing its Sunday racin' thing.

Yep, kinda used to it but that doesn’t make it any easier staying up. I tend to watch the first 15 laps to get a feel for the pattern of the race (on Skysports F1 via 247TVStream). They show plenty of repeats so catch up on the rest of the race throughout the following week and gain further insights by simply reading your posts.

When will Williams ever come back?????? I miss them leading the front. I think they need to put the daughter to the side and bring fresh out of the box character to lead.
They also need to spend more CA$H to compete with the top three.

I guess all in-season changes are technically the first real-world test.

AR is out of the top ten after Quali sims and had coolant leaks in both cars at some point. Overall, they are struggling and out of sorts.

Two practice rounds complete; they don't look on top of the car's setup at all.

EDIT: Ferrari looks like they did in Barcelona winter tests and straight-line speeds hint at more power unit ... well... power.
