I compared telemetry, AT was running 10+ km/h on the straight compared to RB., which explains timing delta. RB appeared to be taking it easy in FP 2.

No rain expected, too bad.

Thanks for putting that on and yes AT was quicker there today but I think RB was doing something else than going for a quick time.
With rain now predicted to be after the race I guess RB are dialing out the wet race mode and I expect them to be quick tomorrow.

Indeed ! They kept it quiet . Probably they just tested different PU response settings.
Strange , because they are having a huge data storage regarding the settings and mappings from the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya .

Seems like the W12 can run very fast over one lap .
Even BOT can be very fast over one lap , because he took the pole at Portugal .
Same with HAM at Portugal , the moment when he overtook MAX , it was like MAX was standing still !
Over one lap the W12 runs very fast to make the gap . Once the gap is made , the Merc pace goes back to normal .
One thing is for sure : The W12 found new (more) power ! A higher rake and the 16B's rear wing ...
Hopefully Red Bull has a response for the Merc's warp-speed ! Because this race is already crucial for the drivers ranking .

Mate .Thanks for sharing ....

Makes the bulges on the PU covers more to do with that in combination with a longer boost battery charge for a short moment when needed.

That's what I was thinking about the bulge as well . More boost = More generated heat !

Remember last year , the last race in Abu Dhabi ..
Mercedes had to turn it down , because 2 weeks before it blew in Checo's Pink Mercedes.
It was a sign on the wall !!!
More boost and power is more wear ...

It's for sure , Mercedes came up in Portugal with something very special !
At least over one lap ...But that's enough to make the gap and to win the race !

#WarpSpeed !!!

Something they had on a dusty shelf already built from years back ready when needed.
Any chance of the Chinese March 5B rocket falling on both the Mercs while they are parked up my friend

FP3. Checo better sort himself out before quali as he's nowhere at the moment in 10th as Max blitzes Merc with a perfect run.

0.168 separates Hammy, Max and Bot, Max had to back of a bit because of Perez yellow flag which hammy didn't and he did Q2 on used tyres which will be disadvantage for him tomorrow.

Checo ran wide with his front left tire on the gravel (half tire was on the gravel)
And of course he went off ...big mistake-own mistake !

As for the Red Bull race strategy , once again the situation looks bad !
Damn Checo !

Yes again Max has to fight two MIB's with one hand for EACH !
Checo should at least be hanging on within tolerance for a higher place instead of kid mistakes of his own making.
