Lewis admitted in the press conference that they had 'gone in the same direction as Nico' to solve the setup problems on Lewis' car.
I read that as they copied Nico's setup.

It was interesting that Nico was honest enough to admit that he was trying hard when he was a lot slower than Lewis in Q2 - and not slow because he was saving his tyres for the race.

I am beginning to think Vetel's "head has gone" and he is regretting his move to Ferrari.
I know they are the team likely to beat Merc, but Judging by the stream of obscenities that tends to issue from Seb, and his seeming variable ability sometimes, I wonder if he is happy with things.

At Red Bull, even when he did not win he did not have to make excuses for not winning, Ferrari seem to be a major blame culture and he needs both hands to cover his seat.


BS. It is not a disaster. Even Mercedes last year in Singapore could not get tyres to work for some reason. Ferrari lacked the grip with increase in temperature. Usually they are more competitive I thought in high temperature but it was an off day. They can still finish ahead of RBR.



What disaster? OK Merc could not get the tyres to work, so who was sacked?

What I am saying is Ferrari is no happy family. If something does not go as planned everyone better have a good excuses or another job to go to.
At RedBull Seb was part of a family and felt comfortable, and performed.

Then he announced he was leaving (the family) and his performance dropped off.

Hamilton was going the wrong way on his setup on Friday. So on Saturday they did a reset and used Rosberg's setup.

"I had a problem yesterday with something on the car so it was not the easiest of days, it was a bit of a waste of a day," said Hamilton after qualifying. "I was starting from scratch today, and the car felt great from the get-go once it was rectified. Nico was comfortable with the car, so we went more in line with the direction he was going.

"We weren't very far away. To have the car beneath me again was a real relief."
