    Ya que le hemos cogido gusto a las "telemetrías" seguimos, en esta ocasión, en clave de equipo, comparativa "telemétrica" entre las mejores vueltas de EO y FA:

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Muchas gracias por las telemetrías, llumia.


    Me llama la atención la diferencia en el uso del acelerador de Hamilton. Pensaba que sólo era con Verstappen y que igual era cosa del coche, pero veo que con Bottas también se dan esas diferencias.

    Es lo bueno de esta nueva herramienta, que podemos conocer muchos detalles que antes desconocíamos.

    Impresiones de los equipos tras la jornada de Prácticas del Viernes:



    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Mercedes

    Valtteri was third fastest in the opening session, with Lewis finishing fourth. The focus during FP1 was on learning the new track and getting up to speed with the layout, including some initial high fuel running to get a feel for the balance.


    Valtteri topped the timesheets in the second session, with Lewis in fourth place once again. For FP2, focused on the balance and set-up on both low and high-fuel, in conditions that better reflect qualifying and the race.


    Track evolution was high throughout the day as more rubber was laid down, with a large difference between the initial FP1 times and the fastest laps in FP2.


    Valtteri Bottas: We've started the weekend pretty well with the set-up. The balance felt good, so I only made a few minor tweaks for FP2. That's an encouraging way to start the weekend at a new track, the team did a really good job with their pre-weekend preparations. It's not far off the sweet spot, obviously there's always work to do and improvements to find and even with driving, you can't find all the speed available in just two sessions. We'll keep on working. It's hard to draw conclusions from today, practice is practice, but the feeling is okay and that's promising for the rest of the weekend.

    Lewis Hamilton: It was a tricky day for me, I don't know exactly how big the gap is, but I'm definitely a bit off the benchmark. This is a new track, it felt okay to drive, quite nice and no real issues, but it's all high-speed corners so it's quite physical. We have some speed to find but we completed plenty of laps, so that's encouraging, and it gives us plenty of data to look into tonight. We'll see what progress we can make tomorrow.


    Andrew Shovlin: New circuits are always an interesting challenge as you never quite know what you are dealing with until you start running, but today has gone well and the car seems suited to the track. Valtteri had a smooth day, the pace has been good on low and high fuel and the balance seems to be in the right place. We decided to start both cars with different set-ups as we weren't sure how the track was going to be and it looks like Valtteri's set-up was better suited, so Lewis had to unpick some of those changes going into FP2 and therefore we haven't yet got his car where we want. However, we've got a good direction to follow, and the tyres seem to be in a good window, we've just got to tune the balance a little. Overall a good start but the track is evolving rapidly, and grip is coming up with every session, so we need to make sure that we keep everything in the right place.

    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Red Bull

    Max Verstappen: "I've had a lot of fun driving today, I think it's a really cool track. FP2 was the first time we could test on the track in the evening so it was important to see how the car would react. There was quite a big change between the medium and the soft tyre for me, the soft tyre wasn't amazing but it's the first time here so there are a lot of things to understand. It's difficult to say what will happen during the race with these cars, it's tough to follow but I think over one lap it's going to be good. Let's see what happens this weekend, there's still a lot of things to look at as everything is still so new."


    Sergio Perez: "I have driven this track before when I was younger and it is slowly starting to come back to me now I have been out there, I don't feel that has put me at any advantage over others. I think we had a good start today but we have implemented some changes across the sessions and we need to review those, especially on the soft tyre. The margins are very small, hopefully we can be strong come qualifying tomorrow evening. It is an interesting place, especially from day to night, it is very different. It is not an easy track and tomorrow we expect the wind to change so it will be interesting to see what happens. I think we have some work to do overnight, we are not entirely happy with the balance of the car, so we will look at amending that before the morning. The next representative session will be qualifying so we will try to get the best out of analysing FP2 this evening and push on positively."


    https://www.pitpass.com/71343/Qatar-...notes-Red-Bull


    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - McLaren

    Lando Norris: "A good start to the weekend. In a way, more positive than we were expecting, I think because of the type of track layout we have here. I think we were anticipating a few more problems and possibly difficulties than we had. I think there are still some weaknesses we've got to work on, but on the whole a solid start. I like the track, it's good fun, especially being a night session as well - we haven't had a night session in quite a while. It's fast, it's high-speed and it's a good challenge."


    Daniel Ricciardo: "This track's fun. The initial impressions are that it's good with it being flowing and pretty fast. We didn't really progress in the second session. We changed the car a bit to experiment with a few things, but it was probably two steps off, so we've still got a bit to find there. Lando was more promising and we can learn a bit from that car. I was a bit off in the first sector so got some work to do there - but I'm not concerned, just a few things to look into tonight. Competitiveness-wise, I think Ferrari will be there tomorrow and Alpha Tauri looked quick. Hopefully we can find a bit more for Saturday."


    Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "Overall, we're relatively happy after our first day in Qatar. The track is fast, flowing and the drivers are enjoying it. Losail provides some challenges from a car set-up point of view, and because some of the kerbs are very aggressive. Some teams have experienced problems with those, us included, and we'll try to address that overnight. We have plenty of analysis to do before tomorrow, but we're looking forward to qualifying and the race. Several cars seem to be in good shape, but we're eager to have a strong showing here."


    https://www.pitpass.com/71349/Qatar-...-notes-McLaren


    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Aston Martin

    Lance Stroll: "The track has a very good flow and that makes it very enjoyable. I had a lot of fun today. The hydraulics issue we experienced in FP1 did not cost us too much track time and for the second session the car felt really good. Saturday is another day but I have high hopes for a competitive weekend. Progressing through to Q3 is definitely the objective. If we can qualify well, I think we will be strong in the race too."


    Sebastian Vettel: "Today was OK from my perspective, but at this stage it is difficult to understand where we are because everyone is still getting to grips with the track. It takes some time to focus and find your rhythm, but overall this is a very fun circuit to drive. I was not so happy with our pace over one lap and traffic made it difficult to get clean laps, but we have some time in FP3 to work on that further. Tomorrow, everyone will be aiming for the perfect lap in qualifying, but only some will achieve it. I am hoping to be one of them because, with it being so difficult to overtake, securing a good position on the grid will play a major part in our final result."

    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Alpine

    Alpine F1 Team had its first experience of the Losail International Circuit today, as preparations got underway for this weekend's first-ever Formula 1 Grand Prix in Qatar.
    Embarking on the 5.38km circuit for the first time in their careers, Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso finished eleventh and twelfth respectively on their debuts at the impressive flood lit venue.


    In the morning session, Esteban completed 23 laps and finished inside the top ten in ninth place on a 1min 24.972secs, posting his fastest time on the Soft compound.


    Fernando's FP1 was a little busier, after he explored the limits of the track a little extensively and ran wide at Turn 15, bouncing over the kerbs on the exit of the corner. His car was checked over during the session and he was able to leave the garage again with just over ten minutes left and finished seventeenth.

    As dusk fell for Free Practice 2, both drivers opened the session with Esteban trialling the Hards and Fernando on Mediums. Soon enough they switched to Softs and found themselves sitting around the edge of the top ten on the leaderboard.


    On their Soft tyre runs, Esteban's best time, a 1min 24.041secs, was good enough for eleventh, with Fernando only 0.014s down in twelfth. The pair held these positions at the chequered flag and ended their day on long runs in preparation for Sunday's 57-lap race.


    Esteban Ocon: "It was a fun Friday discovering this new track. It had some very good surprises for many reasons, so it's been an enjoyable day. The track was high grip and it was very fast and flowing, which was awesome to drive. It brings challenges of places like Sepang and Istanbul rolled into one and that was really good fun to experience. It's challenging for all of us to learn a new track, but the team and I prepared very well so we could be ready straight away. It's about getting the car into the right set-up, finding improvements run by run and seeing what ideas on the car to improve. All in all, it's been a productive one for us today and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can do in qualifying."


    Fernando Alonso: "The circuit is really great to drive. I love the layout and how the combination of corners really gives you the feeling and ability to maximise the potential in a Formula 1 car. I was enjoying every lap, so it was a fun Friday. The grip levels were good today especially in FP2 and the car also felt solid in both sessions. We'll see what we can do tomorrow and we need to evaluate everything overnight but el plan will be to target Q3 in qualifying tomorrow. Overall, a happy day for a happy man."


    Alan Permane, Sporting Director: "Firstly, it's always good to come to new places like here in Qatar - we've received a warm welcome and the facilities are first class. The early impressions of this circuit are very positive with both Esteban and Fernando commenting on how enjoyable it is to drive with its nice flow and high-speed corners. Drivers enjoy tracks which have challenging, near flat-out corners and this place has that to offer throughout. We did our homework on data simulations and we arrived here well prepared. Putting that preparation into practice on track to see where we're at on the timesheets is always rewarding - especially when everything works pretty much to plan.

    The main aim for today was to get into our programme as fast as possible and that meant having both drivers up to speed quickly before doing our normal Friday work, which is a balance between shaping the car set-up, getting everything dialled in and also learning the tyres within the two hours on-track. We've finished today reasonably happy but, as always, there's work to do to refine the set-up and find more performance ahead of qualifying tomorrow. We've started to build a picture on race strategy too, so we're in a good position ready for the rest of the weekend."



    https://www.pitpass.com/71345/Qatar-...m-notes-Alpine


    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Ferrari

    The main aim of Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow on the first day of the Qatar Grand Prix weekend was to do as many laps as possible to get to grips with a completely new track.

    Therefore, the data acquired over the 104 laps that Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz completed in the two hours will be even more important than usual, when it comes to preparing for the rest of the weekend, down to the very last detail. It's clear that there is still a lot of work to be done in terms of set-up and tyre management, especially with the softest compound.


    In the first session, run in conditions very different to those that will be encountered in qualifying and the race, Ferrari completed the second highest number of laps, with 53 to its name: 26 for Carlos and 27 for Charles. The drivers started on the Medium tyres, their lap times coming down progressively: Leclerc did a 1'25"617 while Sainz stopped the clocks in 1'26"045. In the second half, they switched to Softs with which the Spaniard got down to 1'24"713, sixth fastest overall with the Monegasque close behind in 1'24"790.
    The second session started at 17 local (15 CET) and the work focussed more on car set-up both over a flying lap and on long runs. Both drivers started on Hard tyres with Charles posting a 1'25"280 and Carlos getting down to 1'24"914. In the second half, they switched to Softs, both improving with Sainz's best of 28 laps being a 1'24"033 and Leclerc completing 23 laps, the quickest in 1'24"095. The final free practice starts tomorrow at 14 (12 CET), with qualifying getting underway at 17 (15 CET).


    Carlos Sainz: The first day on an unknown track is always exciting and challenging, as it's obviously a completely new experience. To be honest, I think this track has surprised everyone with how fast it is and the speed we are doing around the corners. That translates into having to work harder on the set-ups we originally had in mind and having to adapt throughout the day.




    We are not exactly where we want to be, so we need to improve the car overnight because the competition is very tight. I have full confidence that we can manage it and hopefully tomorrow we will be further up the order.


    Charles Leclerc: I really like the track here at Loisal, it is great. It's always interesting to mix things up and see a new venue on the calendar.


    We put in a good number of laps across our two cars today, getting to know the characteristics of the circuit and gathering as much data as possible.


    Our main focus will probably be on qualifying preparation because our long-runs were already quite good.


    What will be key is balancing the first and last sectors, due to tyre overheating that is caused by the high temperatures here.


    https://www.pitpass.com/71346/Qatar-...-notes-Ferrari


    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "It's been a very good Friday, the best of the season so far I'd say. Inside of the car it doesn't feel that easy, but the lap times are looking really good. I think in terms of balance we can do even better for tomorrow, so we'll try and work on that tonight. Our target is of course to be as far up the grid as possible but we're obviously realistic, we're looking very competitive at the moment, so we'll hope to be up there with McLaren and Ferrari again in Quali."


    Yuki Tsunoda: "It was good out there today, with the car looking quite strong so far. We tried some different set-ups to gather important data for Quali and the race, which is really important, as we're at a new circuit. The car performed well on the Mediums but I struggled a bit more on the soft tyre, so we have some work to do tonight to try and improve in this area. Overall, I think it's been a good day, we've just got to put it all together when it counts. Overtaking looks like it'll be quite difficult here, so it's going to be important to get a good starting position for the race, then we can be in a good place to score points on Sunday."


    Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "Coming to a new track always means there is a lot to cover on a Friday. So, we had a busy run plan across both cars, with the main aim being to understand the circuit and therefore the set-up requirements, tyres and aero configuration. The process is made harder with FP1 happening during the hottest part of the day and FP2 during the early evening, with around 15°C difference in track temperatures across the sessions. Having said that, we were able to cover our run plans and all test items, so far we're looking competitive, particularly over the short runs, which were very good for both drivers. The longer runs were a bit more of a challenge for the tyres, so for sure there is some work to do for tomorrow, but we have captured a lot of good data for analysis tonight and we have a great team of engineers who will work relentlessly to extract the maximum performance. I am confident that we can still improve the car overnight and show a good performance in Qualifying tomorrow."

    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Alfa Romeo

    Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN had a productive Friday of practice at the Qatar Grand Prix, with both sessions devoted to discovering the Losail International Circuit and doing set-up groundwork, especially in the evening session under the floodlights. Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi got to sample the track under different conditions, hot and sunny in FP1 and cooler in the following session, an experience of exploration in the latest venue to be added to the F1 calendar.


    Having gathered all necessary data from the two hours of running, the team will now focus on getting ready for tomorrow's all-important qualifying session, which could prove crucial for the team's hopes of a good result on Sunday.


    Kimi Raikkonen: "The conditions were not bad, actually better than we expected. We had worse situations in the past, in places like Bahrain, where the wind and the dust made it really hard on Friday, so this was pretty ok. We were able to do a good amount of laps, so hopefully we can use the data to improve ahead of tomorrow. Qualifying will be close, we will see what we get when the time comes."


    Antonio Giovinazzi: "It was a good first experience driving here. I was really surprised by the amount of grip, already in FP1. The track is really nice, really fast and driving it is enjoyable. We had a good FP1 today, but found some traffic during our qualifying simulations in FP2. This will be a challenge tomorrow, as there's not much space to let someone through with all these high-speed corners. Qualifying will be really important, but we have another session tomorrow to try new things and get better."

    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Haas

    Round 20 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship began with practice on Friday at the Losail International Circuit as teams prepared for Sunday's inaugural Qatar Grand Prix.


    Friday's action consisted of two 60-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - on the 5.380-kilometer (3.343-mile), 16-turn circuit - most commonly known for hosting the MotoGP World Championship.


    The opening session wasn't without incident for Schumacher and Mazepin. Both cars ran a wake-up run to start the afternoon - Schumacher logging seven laps on the Pirelli P Zero White hard tire with Mazepin on the Yellow medium compound for nine laps. A switch to Red softs dropped lap times with Schumacher P18 on a 1:26.699 while Mazepin set a best lap of 1:27.500 for P20. Schumacher returned for a final high-fuel stint but a lock-up from the German at Turn 7 resulted in his VF-21 taking a hefty trip through the gravel trap in the dying minutes - the team opting to pit immediately as a precaution.
    Floor damage on Mazepin's VF-21 subsequently meant the Russian's session ended prematurely and upon further investigation in the garage - a chassis change was required ruling Mazepin inactive for the remainder of the day.



    FP2, held under the floodlights, saw the solitary Uralkali Haas F1 Team entry of Schumacher bag some productive laps in conditions more representative of Saturday's qualifying session and Sunday's 57-lap race - also set for early evening in Qatar.

    Schumacher ran a five-lap baseline stint on mediums to start before a switch onto the soft rubber for a qualifying simulation. A fastest lap of 1:25.575 followed to place Schumacher P19 on the timesheets. Friday's run-plan concluded with a high-fuel outing sampling both compounds.


    Uralkali Haas F1 Team ran a total of 64 laps on Friday across FP1 and FP2 - 48 by Schumacher and 16 by Mazepin.


    Nikita Mazepin: "I think it's the fastest circuit I can remember visiting this year in terms of almost no slow corners here, which definitely makes it an interesting challenge. The surface is very smooth which makes it an enjoyable experience and this track is all about what Formula 1 cars bring. I felt something come very close to the bottom of my car. It's frustrating as I didn't leave the circuit, I was inside the track limits at the moment it happened, so I think these kerbs aren't very nice to all the cars. In particular, it hit my car at the wrong angle and it makes for a very careful session and race from now on. I think that the first session we do tomorrow, we will start by being inside the white lines and actually not think about the speed but be careful from the beginning - which is the priority - and then build the pushing from that point onwards."


    Mick Schumacher: "I haven't done any simulator work so I went in with no expectations really. Overall, it was very fun, I enjoyed it. The track is very fast, that was probably not as expected. It feels pretty good, I think it's a nice track to perform qualifying on, probably for racing it's going to be a bit more difficult but I'm ready to be surprised."


    Guenther Steiner: "A little bit of a challenging FP1 for Nikita. Coming to a new track, we didn't expect some of the challenges here - which are the kerbs, with other people experiencing damage to the floor. We took it a little bit further, having damage on the chassis and having to change it. He was on the racing line but the kerbs did the damage in FP1 and that was the day over for him. The team is changing the chassis out with the spare one and we will be ready again for tomorrow, for FP3. For Mick, FP1 and FP2 went very well learning the track and the team gaining experience on a track that none of us has been to before."

    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Williams

    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Learning another new track was an enjoyable experience and the Losail International Circuit lived up to expectations. The flowing high-speed corners are demanding but interesting and are liked by the drivers.


    The evening FP2 session was very useful for getting the car ready for tomorrow's Qualifying session. We are reasonably happy with where we got to with the car balance and tyre performance, and although there are a few things to get on top of tonight, we are fairly pleased with our start to the weekend.


    The FP3 session tomorrow will be hot and probably not very representative of the conditions in Qualifying. We will use the session to finalise a few parts of the car specification, but the key areas will be fixed based on today's experience. There will still be some uncertainty going into Qualifying and the race and so we are looking forward to adapting to the situation as it unfolds and making the very most of the circumstances.


    George Russell: I enjoyed it out there today. It's a really fun circuit to drive and it's very fast, probably faster than we expected. The tyre degradation seems relatively low which allowed us to push pretty hard, which is what we all want as drivers from a track.

    What that means for actual racing on Sunday I'm not too sure as it didn't seem the easiest to overtake out there. However, the conditions look like they will change tomorrow which will hopefully be favourable but even if they don't, we will adapt to the situation. The kerbs here are also pretty brutal given the speeds we are doing so there is going to have to be an element of compromise and resistance to going over the limit, as it is not only slower but could possibly damage the car. Overall though, it was a fun day.




    Nicholas Latifi: I was expecting Losail International Circuit to be fun after driving it on the simulator and it did not disappoint! It's really fast and flowing with not many tight corners, which is great for these current Formula One cars and I think it suits our own car's characteristics well. It did feel like we were going well out there, however that wasn't reflected on the timing screens, so we'll look at the data we collected tonight and find the areas in which we can make a step up for tomorrow. A brand new circuit brings plenty of variables as we head into Qualifying, but every team will be in the same position, so we'll do our best to navigate those challenges.

    Qatar GP: Practice team notes - Pirelli

    The Formula 1 drivers and teams got their first taste of Losail today, the latest arrival on the calendar. There was one free practice session in the early afternoon, held in the heat of the day, followed by a second session after dark, which was more representative of qualifying and race conditions.


    Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas set the best time of the day in FP2 (1m23.148s) while Red Bull's Max Verstappen was fastest in the morning: on each occasion using the P Zero Red soft C3 tyre. All three available compounds were used in each session, with the teams focussing on data collection over this challenging new track.


    The crucial FP2 session got underway with 28 degrees centigrade ambient and 30 degrees on track, with moderate wind gusts up to 25kph. The track temperature in FP1 was around 15 degrees higher than in FP2.


    The track was slippery and 'green' throughout the day, especially with sand blowing onto the track from the surrounding desert. A few drivers also went off, dragging more dirt onto the surface. There was a high degree of track evolution seen throughout each session.



    So far, the gap between the P Zero White hard C1 and Yellow medium C2 tyre is around 0.7 seconds, with a similar gap between medium and soft. The lap times were quite fast: already close to those estimated for qualifying.


    Mario Isola: "It was a busy couple of sessions today as the teams concentrated on learning as much as they could about Losail in the time available. There was a high degree of track evolution already during FP1, and this is a pattern we would expect to continue tomorrow. In these challenging conditions with a dirty track and high-energy corners, the initial data shows high wear on the left-front, especially for the soft compound: probably also due to the set-up used by the cars on this circuit. It will be interesting to see how that evolves as the weekend goes on. In the warmer conditions of FP1, the hard tyre worked particularly well as we expected, but in cooler and more representative conditions during FP2, the soft and the medium came into their own. As usual with a new track, there will be plenty of data analysis tonight as the teams begin to work out the weekend's qualifying and race strategy based on what they have learned today."

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Desde Red Bull Racing, creen que a elevada velocidad, el borde de fuga del plano principal del ala trasera de los autos Mercedes, flexa, originando una "abertura" mayor de lo permitido en el Reglamento:

    Comienzan los libres 3 y los alerones traseros de Red Bull siguen dando problemas.

    Bandera roja nada más comenzar la sesión al quedarse parado Mazepin. Menudo fin de semana lleva el ruso. Parece que no quieren que corra aquí.

    Sería interesante ver la manera en la que Mercedes fija el ala en las pletinas laterales del ala posterior. El resto con tornillos

    It would bebInteresting to see the way that Mercedes is fixing the main plane to the sideplates. Looks different than others. They all using bolts

    A pesar de haber estado trabajando en el alerón trasero de Verstappen, este sigue oscilando en cuanto se acciona el DRS.

    En Red Bull comienzan a ponerse nerviositos al no terminar de solucionar el problema. Ya quedan sólo 5 minutos para probar si lo han solucionado o no.

    Al final Verstappen ha podido dar una última vuelta, aunque los de la FOM no nos han mostrado su alerón trasero.

    Y esta es la estimación que hacen de cara a la quali, con los Mercedes claramente por delante.

    FORMULA 1 OOREDOO QATAR GRAND PRIX 2021 - Circuito Internacional de Losail - Doha
    Resultados LIBRES 3
    Sábado, 20 de noviembre de 2021




    Valtteri BOTTAS vuelve a ser el más rápido en Doha, esta vez seguido muy de cerca por HAMILTON, que se quedó a 78 milésimas.

    A pesar de los problemas con su DRS, VERSTAPPEN ha logrado marcar el tercer mejor tiempo. Sus mecánicos tendrán que asegurarse que el poblema quede subsanado de cara a la calificación o su resultado puede verse comprometido. Tal y como están las cosas, los de Mercedes seguro que estarán más que pendiente por si solicitan una revisión.

    Pierre GASLY siguen mostrando su buena forma y ha terminado 4º, justo por delante de Checo PÉREZ, que también tuvo problemas con su DRS aunque parece que el suyo sí pudieron apañarlo al final.

    Carlos SAINZ vuelve a quedar por delante de LECLERC al terminar en la 6ª plaza por la 9ª del monegasco. Entre ellos de nuevo han terminado los Alpine, esta vez con Fernando ALONSO por delante de OCON.

    MAZEPIN al final no ha podido salir. En un principio le sustituyeron la centralita pero no funcionó y se pusieron a cambiar la instalación eléctrica. A ver si logran dejar el coche listo para la quali.

    Muy interesante ver cómo el coche de Verstappen levanta la arena del exterior de la pista a pesar de ni acercarse al borde. Nos permite ver las turbulencias que genera a su alrededor.

    Pues o están haciendo teatro al estilo Mercedes o en Red Bull tienen problemas de verdad con el DRS.

    | Red Bull admit they haven't "fully solved" their rear-wing flap issue, and will have to monitor the situation throughout qualifying.

    Al parecer, Red Bull no puede resolver el problema de DRS de Verstappen a tiempo para la calificación y han decidido cambiar la especificación. El problema que tienen ahora es que Max quiere un alerón trasero con menos DF, aunque los cálculos dicen que más DF da mejores tiempos de vuelta.

    Christian Horner: The grey shadow area is where that lower part of the wing is... what we call fretting against. It's where the wing-backs off.. Where it moves and flexes. That is one picture, but we have numerous pictures.







    Horner: .. numerous pictures from each of the recent Grand Prix and you could see this has been happening. And, that has been our concern. Mercedes said yesterday that there had been no fretting yesterday. I think its quite clear.
