Ah the pink pig, one of my favourite racing cars of all time [emoji106]

Apparently this has got more chance of winning an F1 race or even finishing a race than McLaren Honda
The Merc would still seem to be the faster car in terms of raw speed. But race trim is a different matter.
I do hope pit crews aren't the deciding factor though. Whilst it's part of the team game, it's not where races ought to be won and lost IMO.
McLaren still look to have a mountain to climb. Alonso is fast becoming an albatross where teams are concerned - I wonder just how good a development driver he is...
Having been in the Schumacher stand for the last 3 days you get a true picture of who is on the money.These chicanes before the main straight and the exhaust notes from the leading teams tell the story.
Do not underestimate the Mercedes team,flawless over the entire 3 days.Ferrari did their homework well and understood their tyres better. The interesting part we enjoyed was watching Valtteri Bottas put the heat up on Lewis Hamilton.Yes traffic caused issues for Hamilton but no different to what Vettel had to go through as Vettel closed in on him.Overall in my humble opinion the Ferrari have the pace,rest is up to the drivers.
To tell the truth as spectators we found it very frustrating the giant TV's nor race commentators would give us the time splits between leaders or pit stops.We could see who was catching who but sometimes you want to see the times.
Wouldn't it be great if we could get our members give their first hand observations for every race!
