Williams having to use their alternative stripes in France? That's a bit of a surprise to me.

I was thinking exactly that. Thought he'd abandoned it for a moment

Silly games from Mercedes, but clearly the new spec engine has given them a big advantage over the field. Another dull race in prospect - Mercedes 1,2 Ferrari 3,4, and expect a retirement for one of the RB's.

Merc looking ominous here. Ferrari is always slow on Fridays, but the gap to Redbull is also big and it will be too much for anyone to overcome. Whether it's the track layout, thinner spec tires, new pu, looks like it's going to be a Merc weekend.

The races have been boring for the most part this year, and this track for sure will produce one of the most boring races, but the way the balance of power has shifted over the season has been great.

It's only a dull race if you think that Mercedes are going to win, also the new engine is only worth about 1 tenth, Mercedes was always fancied on this track, it suits their car.

Vettel and Ferrari are clearly doing their usual Friday sandbagging. Does anyone really think he is going to be only 0.01s faster than Grosjean in Q3?

Mercedes have brought their new PU, while Ferrari - in Vettel's hands at least, not sure about Kimi - are using their old PU for Friday practice, so as not to increase wear on the new one. I'm sure that would account for a fairly noticeable difference.

Mercedes look strong, but I think it's impossible to say how good Ferrari are until Saturday morning at least. I expect them to pass Red Bull, in particular when they turn things up in qualifying

I agree it's difficult to see why anyone would care, but by the same token it's difficult to see why Mercedes would be so coy about whether they were using the new PU or not. All seems a bit unnecessary to me

I believe that they just feared Ferrari who tend not to show their hand on a Friday but still what has that got to do with the new spec engine?

An engine that's worth about 1 tenth?

Mercedes should apologise to you for ruining your weekend?

1 tenth is pretty good considering where they are. Wasn't the Ferrari upgrade only half a tenth?

Did you read the original post I replied to which put Hamilton's gap to the rest being down to the new engine as much as anything?

This is just complete guesswork but the tyres may have something to do with it, too. Didn't we see Mercedes on top and Ferrari struggling last time they were used, in Spain?

Although personally I don't think we've seen the true state of affairs yet and I expect Ferrari to improve tomorrow. Just no idea how much

Yeah they are using the same tyres because the track has been resurfaced and has a similar layout to Barcelona were Mercedes were dominant, the kneejerk reaction to Mercedes being the quickest on a Friday when Ferrari normally sandbag plus putting this all on the new engine shows a certain lack of knowledge.

You could've just said in the first reply "It is, but..." or if you disagreed about the strength "It isn't, and..."

I wasn't trying to take away your context, I was trying to get your opinion on the upgrade.

1 tenth is not a game changer it's nothing special would be my opinion, now Renault and Honda found 3 tenths with their latest engine, that moves goalposts.

Low hanging fruit for those two though right? Mercedes and Ferrari are on another level and if those gains are true (1ths Mercedes and 0.5ths Ferrari) then they've done well imo.

It's a dull race when you can predict the outcome before it happens whoever comes out on top. While I was happy Seb won the last race, it was another very boring grand prix and not good for the sport. Of course I have jumped to conclusions before and Ferrari have surprised in qualifying and the race.... so we'll see... but I think this is definitely going to be a Mercedes weekend and yet another boring donkey race where not much happens at the front.

https://www.formula1.com/en/video.html

Anyone else find this video a bit lacking in one area? I haven't been able to watch practice today. I read about the incidents and issues with several drivers. Including Bottas. But this video mentions all top 6 drivers. I got the idea that Bottas's had some sort of issue. But as he wasn't in the top 6 in this, I would have thought they may mention why. They mention hartly's issue, Alonso's run off and other things too. But don't show the full listing and don't mention Bottas.

Yes, I'm a fan of Bottas. But from what I have read happened, they seemed to have mentioned all the stand out things other than one very obvious one. I thought he had to come back in and barely did any running due to a cooling issue.

This "official" f1 website seems so poor and lacking IMO. so much harder to find stuff than it used to be and other sites get up to date more quickly.

If Mercedes are indeed running the new spec engine, does it necessarily mean they will run it in qualy/race?

Brendon Hartley will start at the back of the grid after all of the 6 components of his engine were changed:

Watched practice and thought exactly the same, just don't know why the people at the top can't see it. Seems pretty obvious the straight would be better without a chicane in the middle of it.

Is it raining? It is strange how we seem to have far more wet Saturdays than Sundays!

Chucking it down. I think this will not be good for Ferrari, that's for sure. They haven't gotten into their groove yet and now they won't be able to before the race.
