Yep, as I said pre season testing times mean absolutely nothing!

Ferrari look wanting ... massively behind

Back in the bad old days of the 21 year drought, Ferrari would be quickest in pre season testing. Is it a worrying sign that they have returned to that game?

In the US the Sebring 12 is on CNBC. Since the start an hour or so ago they have been driving behind the safety car due to rain.

Aussie F1 race is on ESPN at 1:05am EDT tomorrow morning.

Sebring is on NBCSN starting at 3:00pm EDT and going until 11:00pm EDT. The rain quit, so the track dried and cars changed to slicks - the two Caddies were running away with it in the rain (they got the green while it was still raining). Some good racing going on.

In the US, a good source of race coverage information is on TV Racer - TVRacer.com

Great race for Bottas, every one else=not so much! RBR w/Honda engines should be 'fairly' optimistic...I don't have a clue what's going on w/my RedTeam. Kimi's Alfa managed to escape w/a point or two. Some decent battles 'mid-pack'.

Hopefully my RedTeam & Alfa can do better.....

Agree. Sort of shows up McLaren doesn't it, or have Honda made huge changes?

IMO yet again Vettel has been shown up by another team mate. Why Ferrari keep wasting money on him escapes me? Vettel is no M. Schumacher, or Hamilton. But on the positive side Leclerc looks fast

It will be interesting to see how Daniel Ricciardos season goes from here. Will he end up with more bad luck with the Renault engine. How reliable and powerful will the Honda be at other tracks?

BTW: CONGRATS to ESPN for airing the GP w/no commercials! Almost 2 hours of un-interrupted F1= Bravo!

@ PSK several years ago Ferrari had turbo cooling problems @ sustained higher boost... (2017)...I am wondering if that has no resurfaced?

The older I get.. the faster I was....

Ferrari cars seem to be not fast enough yet, dont think its the drivers, rather the cars not competitive yet. Alfa at their heels, maybe they overtake this year?
