    This should be Ferrari territory. They will massacre Merc on those straights. Reliability and the thug Vettel are their only weakness now

    I just hope Vettel wins this one, Ferrari haven't won in China in the v6hybrid era

    Ferrari will lock out front row in qualy. Safety car will appear here for sure, and with Vettels' poor race craft who knows what will happen. Leclerc takes it if everything is normal

    I missed qualy, will watch replay. Surprised by the results. Ferrari seems slow again, in the corners at least. They must have some reliability issues and are detuning the engine

    They were very fast in straightline but very slow in slow corners, Williams slow. They might be killing their tires and just compromised for the race. Were almost 1/2 second slower on the medium yellow tires.

    So much for Ferrari dominance this weekend. They should just rename the Turbo Hybrid Era, the Mercedes Era.

    It's just getting ridiculous now.

    This.

    Highlight of the race was watching Kimi charge through the midfield. I bet he has the Alfa set up just the way he likes because he looked pretty confident. I read that the only reason he couldn't get past Perez and go after Ricciardo was because the front tires were cooling off too much. Gio on the other hand... not so impressive. Not sure what is happening with Haas but I hope they figure it out soon.

    I don't understand the gap between Kimi and Gio. Expected a predictable 1-2 procession all season, but not with half of the field between them.

    Could someone provide me a quick summary of Leclerc's conversations with the team? I watched the replay from another channel, but couldn't hear or understand of what he was saying.

    What made you think Gio would be as fast as Kimi right out of the gate?

    I didn't think he would be; but I expected it to be at least close.

    All things being equal, two drivers at the same team, with the same equipment, should and most often do qualify and finish in proximity to each other, no? The Merc's will run together; the Ferrari's; the FI's; the Haas'; etc. Yet, the two Alfa's are running in different fields.

    Fair point. So is Gio just that bad or is Kimi just that good? Or both?
