Ya nos metemos en harina con algunas Previas de los equipos que nos van llegando:

Portugal GP: Preview - Red BullMax is just one point off the lead in the Drivers' Championship entering this race, but he has led the most laps this season. Max has led 90 laps in 2021 compared to Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton)'s 29 so far.

Despite only being 23 years old, Max's 44th career podium in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix moved him ahead of Sir Jackie Stewart on the all-time table. Having now won 11 career races, he is still one month younger than Michael Schumacher when he won his first F1 race at the 1992 Belgian GP.


Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) started a Grand Prix from the front row for the first time in his career at Imola, setting a new Formula One record for longest career before doing so, it was his 193rd start.


Sergio and Max put two Honda-powered Red Bulls in the top three on the grid at Imola. This weekend they are seeking to give Honda their first front row lockout as a power unit supplier since Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger at the 1991 Australian Grand Prix.


Max's win in Italy was the first Honda powered win in Imola since Ayrton Senna 30 years ago.


You said a small mistake cost you pole position in Imola. How did it feel to qualify on the front row?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): I was very pleased with my progression after qualifying on the front row at Imola. I think I even surprised myself to be that quick in only my second race weekend at Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), and to be able to extract the maximum from the car in such a short amount of time. Looking back at it, I think being able to adapt to such a different car and driving style definitely gives me a big confidence boost and it showed me I can adapt well. I am starting to understand the car and that was the main positive.


How motivated is everyone in the Team knowing how competitive the RB16B is?

SP: The motivation is sky high. The way we work at Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), we prepare our race weekend to take the maximum from it because we know if we do everything right we have a realistic chance of winning the race. Everyone in the Team is also pushing really hard to try to improve the RB16B so we can maximise every single weekend with both cars - that's the target. Imola was a missed opportunity as I think we should have finished 1-2 but hopefully we can achieve that this weekend.


What are the Team hoping for at the next round in Portugal?

SP: Imola is a pretty tough track to get on top of and maximise, especially if you've recently swapped teams, but in Portugal I hope to be in the mix and get everything out of the car. We know what the car is capable of and the goal is to deliver on its potential. The positive is that the pace is there, we just need to continue building on our form and take another step forwards.


It takes time getting to grips with a new car. What is the process behind it?

SP: It's just time in the car. Obviously the more work you put in, the more you get out, so I analyse, I make notes, I speak to the engineers and I watch back footage. Everything you do just helps get you as ready as possible. You can see with everyone that has changed teams this year, it takes time to get up to speed. Everyone is good, everyone is exceptionally fast, it's just a process you need to go through before everything comes to you naturally and hopefully we can achieve that in the opening races of the season.


The next races in Portugal and Spain are the first back to back weekends of the season. What are your thoughts heading to the Algarve?

SP: Portugal is a great place to go racing. It's fairly new to the calendar and last year was tricky with the new asphalt so it will be interesting to see how it is this year in terms of grip but certainly I think it's a good track. It's the first back to back of the season and races are coming thick and fast now so it will be important to be on it!


Max, you had a brilliant win in Imola, how did it feel to get that victory?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): It was of course great to win, after missing out in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) it felt very satisfying to win the race in Imola. There were definitely a few things that we wanted to learn from the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) race, which we did, and we could bring home the win. We also know that it's a very long season, so we just have to stay very focussed and I am always looking ahead, Imola wasn't perfect so we have to keep pushing.


Talk us through your race start and the run to Turn 1.

MV: It's always tricky to know what's going to happen but it felt like I had a good launch, I didn't maximise performance on the Saturday so it definitely felt good to lead the race from Turn 1. I'm happy with what we have with the RB16B, it's faster, it has more grip and better balance. We lost downforce with the floor, but I think we lost a bit less than other teams and it shows that we made a good step forward. We're starting the season strong, the best we've had since I've been with the Team. It's a long season, and if we want to fight for the championship, we have to keep improving.


Looking ahead to Portugal, are you excited to go back?


MV: I am looking forward to going back to Portugal, we were on the podium there last year and I think we have a better car now so I'm looking forward to extracting everything we can from the car and have a bit of fun out there. Every race weekend so far, we've really felt that there is a chance to win, it feels like a different mindset now when you know you can fight for pole. We've definitely learnt a lot over the years, I'm very excited to see what is ahead of us. It won't be easy but we are going to do everything we can to stay in the fight this season.

Portugal GP: Preview - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Being on the podium for the second time in Formula 1 was an amazing feeling, but I couldn't have done it without every single person in the team. Everyone at track and the factory continues to go above and beyond to give us the best possible chance every weekend. The result shows the progress we're making to compete closer towards the front of the grid, but we know not every race will go in our favour. We just need to keep our head down and look to improve in all areas to find that extra tenth that can give us the edge against strong competition. I think Imola really showed us that we need to try and turn every opportunity into an advantage with the fight being so close.

"I'm glad we get to return to Portugal this weekend as it was a circuit that added something different to last year's calendar. The elevation changes at this track make it a demanding drive with several blind corners. Everyone was struggling for grip there last year with the track being recently resurfaced, so it'll be interesting to see what it's like this weekend. Hopefully we'll be able to push the car a bit more this time around."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Up next is Portimao and I'm eager to get back in the car. Racing there is a lot of fun with the track having some unique elements that you don't see at every race on the calendar. There's a good mixture of high and low-speed corners with various changes in elevation that make it an exciting challenge. Coming out of some of the turns, you can really feel your stomach drop with the steep changes in gradient.


"This weekend, I want to keep building on the progress we've made in the first two races and put what we learned at Imola into practice. We've definitely started the season on the right foot by scoring good points for the Constructors' Championship, so I can't be too disappointed on that front. There are a few elements I'm still trying to get to grips with which is only going to get better with more time behind the wheel. Seeing Lando achieve a podium showed the potential of the car which is super motivating. We're only three races in and there's a lot more to come from me, so let's keep it going."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "This weekend sees us start the first double-header of the season as we prepare to go racing in Portugal then Spain. Portimao was a welcome addition to the calendar last year and it's great to be returning to race there again. Back-to-back events provide a unique set of challenges for the team that we're well prepared for.

Reliability, operational effectiveness and the management of spare parts are crucial to the success of these weekends.

"Imola again provided confirmation of the step forward we've made as a team, which is encouraging to see. Both drivers are doing a good job on-track and have scored some important points for the Constructors' Championship over the first two races. It's important that we keep the positive momentum and energy up. There's still a lot of work to do as we look to keep pushing and deliver upgrades that are in the pipeline. We also need to continue to maximise any opportunities that present themselves and make the right decisions to stay in the mix. Every single member of the team is dedicated to giving our competition a hard time out on track. We remain focused and are ready to go again this weekend."

Portugal GP: Preview - Haas

Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team's 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship campaign will continue with back-to-back events in Portugal and Spain.

Formula 1 returned to Portugal in 2020, ending a 24-year absence, as the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, more commonly known as Portimao, made its debut on the calendar. Portimao's inclusion received widespread approval from fans and competitors alike, with Formula 1 drivers comparing the circuit to a rollercoaster, on account of its flowing layout and series of undulating sections.


When the provisional 2021 calendar was unveiled there was a blank space - and it was consequently filled by Portimao, which stays on for another season. But in a change from 2020 it moves from fall to spring as the third round of the campaign, with the event occurring on Portugal's Dia do Trabalhador - the Labor Day weekend.


Reflecting on the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the pre-race rain meant your rookie drivers would face a wet start to the race - in just their second ever Formula 1 start. Did the team change its objective based off the conditions and do you see it as a positive that both Nikita and Mick have now experienced wet race conditions?

Guenther Steiner: "No, we didn't change the objectives. We just got the rain and had to deal with it and learn from it. The drivers are drinking from a water hose at the moment, every grand prix is bringing something new up. For learning it's ideal, just learning things like the processes and how to behave in these situations. Once you've done these things once, the second time - for sure, it brings a lot less stress I would say. Do you want it all at the beginning - maybe not, but if it comes, you take the experience. I think it's a good thing all these new experiences."


The issue of track-limits was again present throughout much of the race weekend at Imola. How involved are you as a team principal with all the relevant parties on such matters?

GS: "I'm not directly involved but obviously I've got my opinion about it. For me, with the track limits, if there's a safety issue - I'm for it, otherwise I wouldn't be too concerned about it. Then again, the race director needs to have control over it because with a driver, if you give them a millimeter, they'll take a centimeter. It's in the hands of the race director to make the rules. If the teams and the drivers think it's wrong, for sure we will let him know."


Formula 1 announced that the Miami Grand Prix will be on the calendar from 2022. As an American-owned team, how welcome is the news that a second race will be on the schedule in the United States and in particular, what do you feel Miami lends to the calendar?

GS: "I think to have a second race in the United States is fantastic for the sport in general. I know that the viewership in the States is increasing, which is good for Formula 1 and obviously for us too being the only American team as well. So, there is no negative to this. Miami is a great place to have a race - it's a great city. For me personally, its one race with no jet lag, so that helps as well as I live on the east coast. I'm really looking forward to Miami as it's always exciting there."


Next up we have back-to-back race weekends in Portugal and Spain. In your opinion, what's a successful outcome from the two events for both the team and your drivers?

GS: "Nothing different from the first two races - get as much experience as possible, get both drivers to the finish in both races, keep learning and increase their race knowledge in Formula 1. The target has not changed, we just keep our heads down and learn as much as possible."


Looking back you had the chance to experience Pirelli's Cinturato Blue and Green extreme wet and intermediate tires in Italy - but without the luxury of it being in a test or practice session. As a rookie, how much of a challenge was it to experience a Formula 1 car in the wet immediately in race conditions?

Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "It was a big challenge, because obviously in the race nobody is taking it step-by-step or taking it easy, everyone's pushing to the absolute maximum from the beginning. Therefore, without any practice, you can only guess the trajectory and the line. I'm just one of 20 drivers on the grid, and one of the three rookies, who had to deal with the same conditions - I think everyone was kind of equal there."


Two races in, two very different circuits and conditions faced through Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and Italy. Information comes thick and fast in Formula 1. How big is the jump coming from Formula 2 in terms of the data you have to analyze and the time you have to process it as a driver in Formula 1?

NM: "It's very big. I would say the amount of data that you're able to collect in Formula 1, it's probably triple or quadruple that of what you can get in Formula 2. So, it's a part of your growth, in racing terms, to be able to understand this information and be in control of it."


Back-to-back race weekends offer little opportunity for reflection with the demands involved of moving on to the next race. As a driver how do you prepare for the intensity of back-to-back races - is it simply a case of the more track time the better for you?

NM: "I don't change my approach. I love racing, I love what I do, and I'm very fortunate to be doing this as my job. Back-to-back weekends and the season getting intense is something that I'm massively looking forward to this year. I can't say I've had this in the past, but I just have a good feeling about constantly driving and driving to get better at what I do."


What experiences do you have of testing or racing at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal and what are the specific characteristics of the circuit you need to be aware of in a Formula 1 car there?
NM: "One of my first tests in a formula car was in Portugal at this track. I haven't been there in over seven years, maybe eight if I'm a little mistaken, but this track is a special one. It's a spectacular one to watch on television, and when you're in the car you're constantly going up and down - it's like a rollercoaster. I'm looking forward to getting out there."


Looking back you had the chance to experience Pirelli's Cinturato Blue and Green extreme wet and intermediate tires in Italy - but without the luxury of it being in a test or practice session. As a rookie, how much of a challenge was it to experience a Formula 1 car in the wet immediately in race conditions?

Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It definitely wasn't easy to hop in directly to a full wet race. Obviously, most of the guys started on inters, and partially because we were a bit inexperienced, that's why we chose to start on the full wets. It was definitely the easier and safer way but looking at it now with the experience that I have, I probably would have started on the inters. If we have a wet race again, and if it's not 100 percent sure if it's wet or inters, or if it looks like it's going to dry up, then I'd definitely start on the inters. No situation is identical though, there's always something new and something else happening. You have to assess it in the moment. There was definitely lots learned, it was great fun and a great experience. I liked the mixed conditions."


Two races in and you have encountered two very different circuits and conditions through Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and Italy. How did you find the switch between the two tracks?

MS: "It was quite difficult jumping from a track where we had quite a bit of testing and then the race, to then move to a track where we barely had any free practice time and you have to straight away perform at your best level. It's definitely not easy but it's a nice challenge. I enjoy that challenge and I enjoyed Imola. I find that as a team we made a good step forward. We learned lots with lots to take into the next race weekend in Portimao."


Back-to-back race weekends offer little opportunity for reflection with the demands involved of moving on to the next race. As a driver how do you prepare for the intensity of back-to-back races - is it simply a case of the more track time the better for you?

MS: "I think that the back-to-back races are definitely interesting, there were loads of them last year obviously due to the difficult year everybody had. We too had to have a few back-to-backs in Formula 2 as we had to get a certain amount of races in. I think it's important we asses everything that happens in the race week, take the positives and learn from the negatives, and then you bring those things straight into the next week. Obviously, there's not a lot of time in-between, but I enjoy having back-to-back races as its just loads of mileage, lots of time in the car and time spent with the team. You spend a lot of time with your team anyway and now we get to do it consecutively and work together really closely throughout this time period."


What experiences do you have of testing or racing at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal?

MS: "I tested there in 2018 in a GP2 car. It's a great track, I really love driving on it. I think it's like an old-school track, similar to Imola. It's good for us too as teams don't have a lot of experience there - just the experience from last year. I think that will bring the competition closer which is really good."

Portugal GP: Preview - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Looking back at the last round in Imola, there are some positives to take away from what was a disappointing weekend in terms of the result. We were in the top ten for all free practice sessions and were again in the top five in Qualifying - three and a half tenths off the pole time - which must be one of the best Qualifying times for the team. Seventh in the race is still a good result, even if we know we should have done better. We'll discuss it as a team and see how we can make sure it doesn't happen again.

Last year I had a good race in Portimao, finishing fifth. It's a really unique circuit with all the gradient changes, going up and down like a rollercoaster. It's fun driving there and very different to what we're used to - as a low grip track, the car slides a lot and it's not easy to get the tyres up to temperature. We will be running the C1 hard tyres and last year, especially in FP1 they were very hard to warm up, but this time we have a bit more knowledge and experience and the weather will certainly be warmer this year. So, we will face a different challenge to the ones from the first two races.
After two races, we are now used to only having an hour for each free practice session. It hasn't changed our work programme, but it does mean the track is busier with more cars out at the same time, so there is a bit more action and you spend less time waiting in the garage. I quite like it, as the sessions are more intense."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I learned a lot of lessons in Imola. It was quite the opposite to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) which had gone well. I had very high expectations for Imola and so had the team. Everything had gone smoothly in free practice but then I made a huge mistake in Qualifying, which meant I had a very tough race. I had not had a bad crash for two years, so this was a lesson which I can learn from going into the next races. The race was also the first time I had driven a Formula 1 car in the wet and using the intermediate tyres was really tricky, so I had to build up my speed gradually. But we have a car that has been competitive at the first two tracks, capable of running in the top six.


The track in Portugal is new to me. I don't know what to expect, although I have done a couple of sessions driving Portimao on the simulator and I've watched last year's Grand Prix. It is a beautiful circuit with interesting corners like Turn 1 and the off-camber Turn 13 which looks quite unique, as well as so many up and down sections and blind corners. I think it could be tricky for track limits, but I will build up my pace gradually. It will be a completely different situation to the previous two rounds, as I had already driven a lot in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and Imola before the race weekend. During free practice I hope to complete a significant number of laps to adapt to the track as soon as possible and hopefully be well prepared for Qualifying."

Portugal GP: Preview - Alfa RomeoBack-to-back races are a double-edged sword: on the one hand, they're a challenge for any team, which is tasked with managing the logistical, mental and physical burdens of two race events within two weeks; on the other, it's an exciting, adrenaline-filled time in which the focus on the job at hand is total and one is given two chances to get things right, an immediate opportunity to set things right.

This is even more so when you're approaching a race with the burning desire to right some wrongs: after the first two races of the season, where we did not score the points our performances probably deserved, we head to Portugal first and then Spain determined to get our tally off the mark.


Confidence is high within the team, which is unshaken by the bad luck of the opening races. The swings of fortune are bound to favour us soon, and with them should come the just rewards for our improved form. In the meantime, hard work and commitment remain unwavering. We head to Iberia with quiet confidence, ready to put up a fight to bring home the results we deserve.


Frederic Vasseur: "We approach this back to back with the confidence of being able to have a good performance and the determination to make up for the circumstances that prevented us from scoring in the first two outings of the season. We know we could have, and should have, had two cars in the points on merit last time out, but that is no consolation as the final result is all that matters. It is now time to turn performance into points: we know we need a spotless weekend to edge out the other teams in the midfield and we are determined to do just that."



Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "Two more races mean two more chances to have a good result - something we went really close to in the opening events of the season. We are not miles off, we are right in the middle of this scrap and we can fight with anyone in the midfield if we do our job properly and we have a little luck, which we missed so far this season. Last year I had a fun first lap in Portugal, but it's not going to be on my mind: in the end, it doesn't really matter how you start a race, but where you finish it and we need to finish it in the top ten to achieve our objective."

Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I can't wait to be back in the car for the races in Portugal and Spain. I feel we definitely haven't reaped what we deserved in the first two rounds: we have been terribly unlucky, especially in Imola where we would have been on course for ninth or tenth if it hadn't been for a tear-off stuck in a brake. We need to take the positives of those performances and use them as a spur to go one better in the next races: we know we are in a very close fight and we know we can come home with some really good results if things go our way."

Portugal GP: Preview - Aston MartinAfter a last-minute call up in 2020, Formula One returns to Portugal this weekend as it takes on the rollercoaster Algarve International Circuit. With high-speed corners taken blind, daunting crests and dips, and a challenging track surface, this is an all-out lap where the search for maximum grip on the limit can make or break a Grand Prix.

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "We head to Portugal feeling positive that we're making progress in unlocking the full potential of the AMR21. There's an exciting battle within the midfield pack, and our aim is to compete at the front of it - another clean weekend, and the prospect of more points, will ensure we maintain our momentum."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I think Portimao is a good place to aim for a clean weekend - the circuit is a high-speed autodrome; very smooth, and with plenty of gradient. It's fun to drive, and I think it'll be a good place to get a better handle on the limits of the AMR21. I know I'm yet to get the maximum from the car - but the fact that we understand that is another good reason to keep pushing."


With a rollercoaster layout and limited data to pull upon, the Portuguese Grand Prix promises to be both eventful and unpredictable. Our strategy engineers have analysed historic data and more recent car performance to predict the key factors that could determine the result on Sunday - presented here in partnership with our Title Partner Cognizant.


Overtaking: Usually one of the easiest circuits on the calendar for overtaking, particularly on the long run down to Turn One. In fact, 49 of the 55 overtakes (89%) made in last year's Grand Prix came at the opening corner.


DRS: It plays a vital role here, but changes have been made for this year's race. The start/finish line's DRS zone is reduced by 165m, which could impact passing into Turn One. But a secondary zone has been added on the straight between Turns Four and Turn Five, with the latter corner already a hotspot for overtaking.


Run-off: Portimao is the opposite of Imola when it comes to track limits - it has sweeping expanses of smooth run-off. While Imola is particularly punishing, so is Portimao - except it's the stewards who tend to be kept busy. In 2020, 194 laps were deleted for infringements - that compares to 63 in Imola last time out.


While there were no Safety Cars in last year's race, there were three red flags in practice and the low-grip surface created a surprising start to the Grand Prix as drivers struggled for traction away from the line. Expect incidents!
Strategy: It's likely to be a uniform one-stopper due to low tyre degradation. Last year, most drivers chose to pit just once - the only exceptions being those affected by an issue or hit with a penalty. Pirelli is bringing its C1, C2 and C3 tyres this weekend, the hardest range available.


Unlocking the Lap - with SentinelOne



A lap of Portimao requires commitment, whether it's approaching high-speed blind crests, finding the limits in long-sweeping corners, or carrying maximum speeds into the long straights.


The majority of the 969m start/finish line opens the lap at Portimao, with drivers carrying significant speed into a tricky, bowl-shaped right-hander at Turn One. With plenty of opportunity for slipstreaming, it's the key place to overtake - but also very easy to run wide and pick up a stewards' warning.


It's simple to follow Turn Two's flat-out kink by going wide into Turn Three, Lagos. It's the slowest corner on the track - and is unusually wide for such a big stop. The tight and technical second and third sectors mean most battles are usually resolved by Turn Five.


Portimao is notable for its swoops and dives. On average, tracks feature gradient changes of around 8 per cent - the steepest gradient at Portimao is a 16 per cent downhill slope, with the track sweeping steeply downhill between Turns Eight and Nine and 11 and 12.


Sagres corner (Turn 14) requires a late turn-in followed by a wide exit is key as drivers sweep into the final corner, Galp. This turn starts off blind, but drivers can gather speed through the apex all the way through to the finish line. It also takes precision to excel here on an in-lap - with the pit entry placed at a tricky angle.


Expect top speeds of over 352km/h (219mph) on the main straight.

Impacto de los fuertes desniveles de la pista:

The impact of track elevation in F1One of Portimao's most distinctive characteristics is the frequent elevation change, with the circuit rising and falling dramatically throughout the course of the lap like a rollercoaster.

These gradient changes are far steeper than they appear on TV, but although they don't pose a technical challenge to the cars themselves, they have a much bigger impact for the drivers.


Elevation change does not impact the performance of the car as much as you might expect. It does put a little more strain through the cars, but they are built to handle heavy kerb strikes and large forces anyway, so a bit of extra compression in the suspension is no bother for modern-day F1 machines.


But different types of elevation change impact the cars in different ways, depending on the circuit and the topography.
Some will require tweaks to be made to the car set-up, to really dial the car into the track characteristics and maximise them, while others will require the right compromise to be found.


Take Spa-Francorchamps as one example. The intense downhill and uphill complex of Eau Rouge requires teams to increase the front ride height of the car. This is to handle the vertical compression forces of around 3g that the car is experiencing, as it is pushed into the ground through the sudden downhill-to-uphill change while at almost vMax (maximum velocity, otherwise known as top speed).


The vertical compression of the tyres and suspension through this section of track is one of the highest on the calendar, which isn't particularly surprising considering Spa has the biggest difference in elevation change (102 metres between the highest and lowest point) in F1.


Yet this level of compression isn't a consideration at a track like Portimao, because while there are some steep slopes, the elevation changes aren't taken at such high speeds. The elevation change from lowest to highest point is also not as dramatic as a track like Spa, with a difference of just under 30 metres, but the ups and downs are more frequent.


However, these undulations do still have an influence on how the car handles and reacts during a lap. First, at Portimao there are uphill and downhill corner entries and exits, so a mix of gradient directions. You can't set the car up for one or the other, because that'll compromise too many of the other elements, so a middle ground has to be found to ensure the car reacts well enough in all of those scenarios.


Second, an interesting factor in Portimao are those downhill corner exits. The loads of the car go 'light' on exits such as Turn 11, which has a 16-metre drop, the steepest decline in gradient at the track, and the car effectively just wants to go straight on. It doesn't because of gravity and downforce, but the drivers still feel a noticeable lack of grip and this can make the car more unstable. It also makes traction trickier, so there is a delay with the drivers getting the power down.


Another track with some obvious elevation change is the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring in Austria. The cars don't experience compression or the 'light' feeling here, but there is track 'warp' to contend with. This is where there are different gradients on the track left to right, as you go along, effectively creating a spiral effect.


Turn 3 in Austria is a clear example of this, because the corner creates a crest - from the uphill entry and downhill exit.

As drivers navigate this warp, the car tends to want one wheel (the inside front on this occasion) to get some air and this upsets the car balance.


As for the drivers...


Looking specifically at Portimao, the elevation change has a much bigger impact on the drivers than it does the cars. The undulations create some blind corner apexes, including Turns 8, 11 and 13. This makes it tougher for them to see the entries to the corners and create reference points for braking and turning in.


Because of this, it can make it more difficult to learn the track and build up speed during those initial laps in practice. This is certainly something Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) found last year, on its first visit to Portimao, where it took a little longer during practice for the drivers to settle in and know where they need to commit to their racing lines and braking points.


Arguably the trickiest complex for the drivers is Turn 10 and 11, because it is a double-right hander with a blind entry - as the track rises by roughly 12 metres - and a steep downhill drop on the exit of 16 metres. The steeper the slope, the more an F1 car wants to become airborne. But it doesn't due to gravity and downforce.


However, the load under the tyres (called the contact patch) reduces as a result and this impacts the grip the driver has on the exit. So, it does make the car a bit more unpredictable at these points on tracks like Portimao, where there is a dramatic drop in gradient.


The unsighted entry to the Turn 10/11 sequence and track width means we see plenty of different approaches by the drivers - particularly during practice, where they are finding the limit. Even with the blind entry though, over time and with experience, they know exactly where to point the car.


The elevation changes do put a little bit more force through the driver's body and make things more physically demanding during a lap. While this isn't too severe an issue in Portimao, owing to the speed the drivers tackle the crests and troughs, at a circuit like Spa-Francorchamps, this is a different story.


The sweep through the Eau Rouge, for example, is a massive compression. Just as it puts more forces through the car and its components, additional forces are also being experienced by the driver too. Thankfully for the drivers, where elevation is concerned, these are short, sharp bursts of additional force rather than more sustained forces experienced through cornering.

The undulating nature of some tracks has a small but important impact on the racing itself. For example, in Portimao the elevation changes and unsighted entries to certain corners create more than one line, which can create opportunities for overtaking or mistakes. But it can also make the racing line even more defined, depending on the local topography.


Safety and visibility are further factors for the drivers to consider, as there are several sections that are unsighted. The dip before the first corner is one such example at Portimao, as is the drop after Turn 8, where you cannot see what is ahead until you peek over the crest. These are all further challenges and thought processes being added to the drivers' workload during the sessions.


The blind corner entries also increase the risk of mistakes in Qualifying as the drivers are picking braking or turn-in points without the normal track reference points that they'd have in clear sight. So, it is tougher to be precise, particularly when on the limit during Qualifying at a track like Portimao.

Portugal GP: Preview - AlpineThe team is ready to take on the Algarve International Circuit for this weekend's Portuguese Grand Prix. After scoring double points last time out, Racing Director Davide Brivio looks ahead to Portimao and discusses the team's plan of action.

How does the team reflect on Imola?

Davide Brivio: It was a challenging weekend, especially the race with the changing weather conditions just before the start. It was the same for everyone with the strategy suddenly changing and the entire team having to adapt. We were happy to score points, even if we would always like to score more. Esteban did a good job in getting the car into Q3, which was important for him after missing out in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). For Fernando, he missed something in qualifying, but he is working very hard on his Formula 1 return. It was good to go through many different situations in the race with the wet conditions, dry conditions, safety cars and the red flag restart. We can take benefits from this and what we learnt during the weekend.


Did the upgrades to the A521 work as expected?

DB: The upgrades we brought to Imola on the car worked as we projected. They are important, intermediate steps. We'll continue developing and try to take the benefit from the next few races on this.


What is Portimao like as a circuit from your perspective?

DB: I think it's quite a unique circuit and there's a reason why everyone calls it a rollercoaster! It's quite up and down throughout, which makes it very special. The weather is likely to be different to what we had there last October, so that's something we'll keep an eye on. The track surface might have some improvements with the higher air temperature and better, overall grip levels, and that will be interesting to find out. It's a new circuit for Fernando to learn, while for Esteban, he'll aim to carry on his experience from last year. We're looking at trying to improve our performance from Imola and also improve our performance from last year at this track.


How much are you looking forward to seeing Formula 1 cars there?

DB: Normally all drivers like this type of track. There aren't many places which are so up and down and also fast. It's enjoyable for people watching too, so hopefully it's a good show. The first two races this season have been exciting for different reasons and, this layout can offer another interesting race. As a team, we have to learn from Imola and be ready to take the opportunities when they come.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) opened his 2021 points account in Imola after finishing ninth place in a topsy-turvy Grand Prix. The Frenchman is looking forward to taking on the rollercoaster-esque Algarve International Circuit this weekend in Portimao, aiming for more points.


How pleased were you to score your first points of the season last time out?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): It was nice to score our first points of the season and also our first points in Alpine colours. The race itself was not straightforward with the changing conditions and difficult on-track decisions we had to make both before and during the race. I think we learnt a lot and we can certainly put all of that knowledge into future races. The car felt good, the upgrades we brought worked well and now it's important we push on and make further progress. Clearly the midfield is very tight and there will be opportunities, which we must take.


What is the Algarve International Circuit like to drive?

EO: I'd say Portimao is one of the most enjoyable circuits to drive. It flows really well and has some really fun corner combinations. Last year, when we were there for the first time, a lot of people compared it to a rollercoaster because of all the elevation changes and quick turns we make. I was very happy when Portugal was announced on the calendar. The venue is fantastic in the Algarve, the weather should be warm, so I'm looking forward to it.


What do you remember from last year's race and what knowledge from that experience can you put into this weekend?

EO: We had an interesting race there last year in very challenging conditions with quite low grip levels. I remember the start was crazy with some rain just as the lights went out. It'll be interesting this weekend. We have the harder compound of tyres again like last year and we'll be giving it our all to have both cars in the points.


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) heads to Portimao on the back of scoring his first point of the 2021 season in Imola. Despite 316 race entries in Formula 1, the two-time world champion is set to race for the first time at the impressive, undulating circuit, tucked away in the picturesque port city in the Algarve.

You came away from a chaotic Emilia Romagna Grand Prix with your first championship point of the season, how do you feel following the weekend?

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): It was a very tough weekend for everyone. It was like doing three races in one, with the wet and dry conditions as well as the red flag. I learnt a lot from the weekend and especially after such a limited amount of testing in pre-season and only 32 laps in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) during race conditions. But Formula 1 races come thick and fast, and each weekend I learn more and adapt better to the car. There is always a period of adaptation in any new team or car, but I am working hard to be back to 100%.


What's your evaluation of the upgrades brought to the A521 last week?

FA: Looking back at the weekend we were obviously happy to score our first points of the season, and the upgrades we brought to the car were positive and worked well. I felt happier with the overall feel of the car and I think there is more potential there for us to improve. The factories are working hard, and it was good to see this paying off. We'll take this positivity forward into Portugal and hopefully we can show further progression there.


This weekend will be your first ever race in Portugal in Formula 1, are you looking forward to it?

FA: It will be a totally different challenge this weekend in Portimao compared to Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) and Imola. The circuit is very fun to drive and I think in these modern Formula 1 cars it will be very exciting, especially with the huge elevation changes. I've only tested here before in very wet conditions, so it will be a bit of a learning curve to begin with, but I love new challenges. We want to score more points this weekend.

Portugal GP: Preview - FerrariThe third round of this year's Formula 1 World Championship takes place at Portugal's Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, near Portimao. As was the case with the Grands Prix run in Sakhir and Imola, the drivers find themselves back on a track that they last visited just a few months ago. Last year's Portuguese Grand Prix was held on 25 October.In 2020, the drivers were unanimous in their praise for the track, which they found challenging and fun, with its climbs and drops and many blind corners. The circuit has two very long straights in the first sector, where good top speed is vital, while the second sector is very different, being more twisty. It is in fact in this sector that one finds many of the changes of gradient where a driver must rely on instinct and have total confidence in his car. The final part features medium-high speed corners, especially the last one which leads on to the start-finish straight. There are two DRS zones: on the main straight and between turns 4 and 5.

Portuguese Grand Prix: facts & figures



4. The race laps led by Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) at the Portimao circuit. On slick tyres on a wet track, the Spaniard got a great start to the 2020 GP from seventh on the grid. This was the second time he had led a Grand Prix, having been out in front for one lap of last year's Italian GP, where he eventually finished second.


18+2. The number of districts that make up Portugal, including the two autonomous islands of Madeira and the Azores. The circuit is in the Algarve, the eighth most populous area, the top three being Lisbon, Oporto and Setubal. The main city is Faro and it has just over 450,000 inhabitants.


32. The number of potential configurations of the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, which was built in 2008. They go from the shortest, which is 3.465 kms to the longest at 4.684 kms.


58. The number of overtaking moves in the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix, which was a record for the season. It was partly down to the wet track in the opening stages and the spectacular nature of the circuit. This race was way ahead of the second placed Styrian Grand Prix at Spielberg, which had 45 passing moves. The race with the least changes of position last year was the Emilia-Romagna at Imola, with just six.


650. The number of Formula 1 World Championship races run in Europe, including this Sunday's, out of a total of 1037. America is next up on 207, followed by Asia on 121, Oceania with 35 and Africa on 24.


This week in Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) history



28/4. In 1974, Niki Lauda won the Spanish Grand Prix in a 312 B3-74. For the Scuderia, it ended a barren patch that had lasted over a year, since Jacky Ickx won the 1972 German Grand Prix. It was the Italian team's fiftieth win, while Clay Regazzoni's second place meant it was also the Scuderia's 28th one-two finish. That year, the Swiss driver won in Germany and was in the title fight with Emerson Fittipaldi right down to the final round, while Lauda also won in Holland.
29/4. In 1984, Michele Alboreto won in Belgium. It was his first victory at the wheel of a Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) (the 126 C4). The Milanese thus became the eighth Italian to win at the wheel of a Prancing Horse car, 18 years on from Ludovico Scarfiotti's success at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) in 1966. The other six drivers are: Alberto Ascari, Piero Taruffi, Giuseppe Farina, Luigi Musso, Giancarlo Baghetti and Lorenzo Bandini.


30/4. After a four month run in 2019, the "Michael 50" exhibition, dedicated to Michael Schumacher's fiftieth, came to an end. The exhibition told the extraordinary story of the German seven times world champion's career with Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), through the most important cars that he drove. He won 72 Grands Prix with the Scuderia, bringing home five Drivers' and six Constructors' titles.


1/5. In 1983, Patrick Tambay triumphed in the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola in a 126 C2B. It was the Frenchman's second and last victory with Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). That year he and his teammate and fellow countryman Rene Arnoux delivered an eighth Constructors' title for the Maranello marque.

2/5. In 1999, Michael Schumacher won the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola. The German thus took the lead in the championship standings, taking over from teammate Eddie Irvine. This was Michael's 15th win with Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), which put him equal with Niki Lauda at the top of the table for most wins with the Italian team.

Crónica de la FP1 (Fuente: The-race.com):

Portimao FP1: Everything you need to know

Valtteri Bottas was fastest in the first Formula 1 practice session of the weekend at Portimao, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in second.

Key moments:
> Verstappen complains of severe vibrations aboard his Red Bull
> Hamilton unhappy with balance in his Mercedes
> Russell seventh fastest for Williams
> Ilott 17th-quickest in first FP1

Bottas topped FP1 for the second consecutive round with a 1m19.648s ahead of F1’s second-ever grand prix at the Portuguese circuit.


Verstappen was just 0.025 seconds slower than Bottas in second place despite complaining of vibration issues aboard his Red Bull in the closing stages of the session.


Bottas’ team-mate Hamilton wasn’t happy with his car balance either, labelling the Mercedes “undriveable” after his first practice run.


Set-up changes were made to Hamilton’s car and he ended up 0.319s off his team-mate in fifth place.
Sergio Perez sat in the garage for the first third of the session but he still managed to go third-quickest for Red Bull, within two tenths of his team-mate Verstappen.


Charles Leclerc rounded out the top four for Ferrari – the same position he finished last year’s Portuguese GP in.

AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly was sixth-quickest behind Hamilton, while George Russell was an impressive seventh-fastest for Williams.


The top 10 was completed by McLaren’s Lando Norris, Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and the Alpine of Esteban Ocon.


Callum Ilott was 17th-fastest on his FP1 debut – having previously been set to drive for Haas in Nurburgring’s opening practice session last year before it was cancelled due to poor weather.


F2 2020 runner-up Ilott was 0.425s slower than his Alfa Romeo team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.


Haas drivers Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher almost came together at Turn 1, with Mazepin unaware that his team-mate was going for a second consecutive flying lap. Schumacher was 18th-fastest, while Mazepin was slowest of all.

Crónica FP1 (Autosport):

F1 Portuguese GP: Bottas fastest from Verstappen in opening practice Valtteri Bottas topped FP1 for Formula 1’s 2021 Portuguese Grand Prix by 0.025s over Max Verstappen, who finished second despite complaining of vibrations impacting his vision on his fastest lap. The pair traded fastest times throughout the opening practice session, while Lewis Hamilton finished fifth after complaining of a balance problem early on and then failing to string a flying lap together on the softer tyres in the closing stages.


When the session got underway, Bottas was first to take the track, followed by Sergio Perez, who was initially running a large aero rake at the rear of his Red Bull.


Bottas therefore set the early benchmark at 1m23.778s on the hard tyres, which most of the field used for the first half of the 60-minute session.


The smooth, low-grip surface meant the drivers were finding time the longer their runs went on, with Bottas soon lowering the fastest time to a 1m22.938s.


Hamilton then jumped ahead with a 1m22.772s, also on the hard rubber, but was soon back in the pits complaining that the balance on his W12 was “undriveable” and that Mercedes had to make some “serious changes”.


Carlos Sainz Jr went fastest as the opening 10 minutes ended, before he was usurped by Bottas’s 1m21.829s, which brought the Finn’s long opening run to a close.


Nearly 10 minutes later, Daniel Ricciardo put his McLaren quickest with a 1m21.821s, before Verstappen put in his first flying effort of the event just past the 20-minute mark having started his session much later than most.

Verstappen duly went to the top of the times with a 1m21.053s – which would have been faster had he not had to catch his car snapping left while running through the long, downhill right-hander of Turn 14 – where Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc had run out wide over the large run-off area during the early stages.


Bottas retook the top spot with 1m20.506s when he reappeared again on the hard tyres, which stood as the benchmark over the session’s halfway point before Verstappen lowered it twice, first with a 1m20.500s then a 1m20.318s on consecutive runs – despite complaining of struggles at the tight Turn 3 right “every other lap”.


Shortly after this, Bottas switched to the soft tyres for the first time and quickly retook the top spot with a 1m20.221s, where he shipped time to Verstappen in the middle sector.


Bottas corrected this next time and lowered the fastest time again to a 1m20.088s, before breaking into the 1m19s on his next flying lap – a 1m19.648s.


Heading into the final 10 minutes of FP1, Verstappen also switched to the soft tyres, but ahead of his flying lap he complained of severe vibrations coming from his tyres, even suggesting he could not see properly as a result.


Red Bull offered to bring him in on safety grounds, but Verstappen joked he would “just visit the dentist after the weekend” and continued onto his flying lap.Despite the issues, Verstappen set purple sectors in the first two thirds of the lap, but lost time to Bottas in the final sector and wound up 0.025s adrift, after which he pitted to get his tyres checked.

Perez slotted into third late on to finish 0.198s slower than Bottas, with Leclerc also improving as the clock wound down to put his Ferrari fourth.Hamilton’s session finished with several attempts at a flying lap on the softs, where he would regularly set the fastest time in the first sector before losing time in the middle segment and then aborting his runs.


He therefore ended up 0.319s slower than his team-mate’s best time, with his best time on the softs coming in at 1m19.967s – the final lap under the 1m20s bracket.Pierre Gasly took sixth for AlphaTauri ahead of George Russell, who backed up Williams’s strong practice form at Imola with seventh.


Lando Norris took eighth for McLaren ahead of Sainz, while Esteban Ocon rounded out the top 10 in his Alpine.


Sebastian Vettel provided some comic relief halfway through the session when he briefly parked up at the McLaren pits, where he had been used to stopping with Ferrari in 2020, before rolling up to his Aston Martin garage and apologising to his squad.


He finished P16, one spot ahead of Callum Ilott, who made his F1 weekend debut in place of Antonio Giovinazzi and finished two places behind Kimi Raikkonen in the other Alfa Romeo.

FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN GRANDE PRÉMIO DE PORTUGAL 2021 - Autódromo Internacional do Algarve -Portimão
Resultados FP2
Viernes, 30 de abril de 2021


Lewis HAMILTON ha marcado el mejor tiempo en la segunda sesión en Portimão. Tras él han terminado dos habituales: VERSTAPPEN y BOTTAS.

Tras ellos han finalizado Carlos SAINZ y Fernando ALONSO. El Alpine se ha visto mejor que en la sesión anterior. Ocon ha terminado 6º.

Carlos ha montado en esta sesión el nuevo fondo plano de Ferrari, fondo que utilizó Leclerc en los libres 1. Parece que Ferrari sólo ha podido tener listo un suelo nuevo y que, para no perjudicar a uno de sus pilotos, lo han probado aquí pero no lo utilizarán hasta el GP de España, donde ya tendrán dos unidades. Leclerc ha terminado 7º.

VETTEL sigue un tanto perdido. Mientras STROLL ha terminado 9º, él ha terminado 15º, a más de medio segundo de su compañero.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la jornada de prácticas del Viernes:

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - MercedesValtteri went quickest in the first session of the day, with Lewis in P5. Lewis topped the timesheets in FP2 with Valtteri finishing P3.

Today's programme focused on aero evaluation work and gaining a better understanding of tyre temperature performance.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): In terms of pace, it was not a bad start - I think we are there or thereabouts. It's going to be close, no doubt. Quite similar feelings to last year here, it's a slippery tarmac and the rear of the car is pretty loose in places, so it's not easy to get clean laps. For me, the softer we went with the compounds, the more tricky the car became, and the Medium tyre looks to be working best.


The track has improved from last year, slightly more grip and definitely a step in the right direction. Tomorrow it is going to be important to get the heat in the tyres in the right way - it's going to make a big difference. It will be close between us and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and could swing either way. Whoever finds more lap time overnight gets pole.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): It's a little grippier here this year but it was very windy today so I think everybody was struggling with balance and sliding around. Not a massive amount of track evolution between the sessions - as it got hotter, the track got slower. This morning seemed to be a little bit better, then this afternoon it got warmer and windier so it seemed to make it harder for people to find time and work on their balance.


I think it'll be a close one this weekend. I don't know what Max's lap was like in FP2 but mine wasn't perfect so we definitely have some time to come from the car and improvements to make. But I'm sure Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) have too. It was close, as it has been the last couple of races, so I'm sure it'll be an exciting qualifying and race in store.


Andrew Shovlin: It's been an interesting day. The first session was quite tricky in the cold conditions and in the afternoon it was warmer but the wind had picked up strength and was pushing the car around, affecting the balance. Valtteri seemed quite comfortable with the car, he was on the pace from the start and able to generate good grip from the tyres which allowed him to get into some useful setup investigations. Lewis struggled more with the rear end and whilst he topped the timesheets, we've got some work to do to improve the balance for him tomorrow.


We'd found some damage on both cars at the end of the day that will have been costing some performance and will certainly explain some of Lewis's issues on the long run but even with that corrected, we could do with finding a bit more pace. The single lap looks really close with Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) but Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) were also consistently around our pace so we'll prepare ourselves for another close fight tomorrow. Likewise, the long runs all seem to overlay pretty closely so hopefully that's a sign we'll be in for an exciting race on Sunday.

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team finished with both cars inside the top six at the Algarve International Circuit today as preparations began for this weekend's Heineken Portuguese Grand Prix.
Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) - driving for the first time in Formula 1 in Portugal - was the fifth fastest driver in Free Practice 2, 0.4secs off top spot, with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) just 0.015secs adrift in sixth.


For Free Practice 1, the team ran aero test items on the A521 to assess some further updates to the chassis package. Fernando started his day on Pirelli's Soft (C3) tyres to bed himself into the circuit with Esteban on Hards (C1).


By the end of the session, Esteban finished tenth, on Soft tyres, with Fernando outside the top ten in fourteenth.


Free Practice 2 was delayed by 10 minutes as minor track repairs were completed at the 4.653km circuit. Both drivers started the session on Mediums (C2) and ran strongly inside the top ten.


At the midway point, both drivers assessed low fuel runs on Softs with Fernando's 1min 20.220secs good enough for fifth and Esteban's 1min 20.235secs putting him sixth after a series of push laps.


Both drivers ended the day with long runs, Esteban assessing the Softs and Fernando the Mediums.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It was a pretty solid day for us, especially in terms of mileage. We completed a lot of laps and that was quite nice. We tested all the tyre compounds and we have a good read on that ahead of the race on Sunday. This circuit is certainly a tricky track in terms of grip, but I would say it has improved since last season. It's still a challenge for us and we're working hard to get a little bit more grip from the car for tomorrow."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a good practice day for me and the most comfortable I've had this season compared to Bahrain and Imola. I was happy with the setup of the car quite early in the day, so I concentrated mostly on becoming more acclimatised to the circuit and then evaluating the tyres over the two sessions. There is still lots of data for us to analyse, but it's a good start to the weekend. I enjoyed driving the circuit for the first time in a Formula 1 session, but I think traffic could be a challenge tomorrow in qualifying. It's an exciting track to drive, that's for sure."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "I think it was a good day for the team today. It is just Friday, though, and we won't be looking too much into the timesheets. We were able to test a few things on each car in the morning, and then we completed our usual long runs in the second session on each tyre to collect data and information for the race. The drivers did a good job; it's Fernando's first time here in a Formula 1 car, so he was getting used to the track a little bit and Esteban ran very consistently in both sessions. It's a positive start to the weekend, we'll keep working hard and see how the next two days unfold."

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - Red Bull

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It feels great to be back on track in Portimao, the circuit is amazing but the conditions are very similar to last year and the tarmac is super slippery. The tyres have of course changed and we all lost a bit of grip from the cars compared to last year. It's very tricky out there and not easy to switch the tyres on which is a shame because it seems to be all about tyre preparation and temperature. It's the same situation for everyone so we just need to make sure we are on top of the car so we can make the best out of it. It seems tight with Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) this weekend again and the car felt alright but we still have some work to do ahead of tomorrow, that's for sure."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "Today we had very similar track surface conditions to last year with limited grip on the new tarmac so it's really hard to get the tyres to work. It's not easy so the main focus is to understand what's going on with the tyres. I think the pace on the mediums was good but when we went on to the soft compound we didn't find any lap time so we'll need to look into that and hopefully sort it out in time for qualifying. It's hard to compare with the last round in Imola as it's a very different track here and everywhere just has less grip overall due to the tarmac but I think we have pretty good pace in the car so hopefully we will be in the mix to fight for pole tomorrow."

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauri

Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It's been quite a difficult day, the car doesn't feel that good so tonight we need to analyse everything and see what we need to do to improve, as we're not currently utilising our full potential. Compared to the last few races, we're really struggling on braking in the low-speed areas, so we need to look at what we've changed. Obviously, the conditions and layout are very different here - it's quite slippery - so we might need to make some different adjustments to usual. The midfield is so tight at the moment that we have to work on this a lot tonight to find the extra time for tomorrow - two or three tenths at the moment can lose you six or seven places, come Qualifying, so it really is crucial. I think I've been in Q3 for the last five or six races so I really want to continue that train and I'm confident we can make some changes tonight so that can happen again tomorrow."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "Today was the first time that I've driven the track here in Portugal and I really enjoyed it - especially the up-and-down areas of the circuit - and I've learnt quite a bit in the two sessions today. There's a lot of new elements to understand, there's really low grip levels compared to Bahrain and Imola, so at first I struggled to adapt to that but I think I managed to learn fairly quickly and my progression through the day has been good. I'm continuing to build the pace in the car and tonight I'll look through the data with my engineers, analysing the set-up of the car, and then tomorrow I hope to put it altogether for Qualifying."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "It wasn't quite as successful a Friday as we were hoping for, or that we've become accustomed to maybe. For FP1, our focus was on the medium and hard compounds, alongside some aero testing on Pierre's car. Yuki spent the morning session learning the track, as he's never driven here before, and we came out of that session relatively happy with the car and the performance. Likewise, going into the start of FP2 on the Mediums, we were quite comfortable with the pace of the car. We then moved to the soft tyre, which has been an issue for us as we weren't able to extract the pace from the car that we would've liked. The conditions here are very challenging with the wind - there was a tailwind on most of the corners and then a headwind on the start/finish straight, which doesn't make it easy for the drivers. Tonight, there will be quite a lot of work for us to do to understand why we've struggled on the Softs - I think that's going to be the key for us going into tomorrow."

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - Alfa RomeoThe first day of action in Portimao was a veritable rollercoaster - and not just because of the undulating nature of the Algarve track. A surface that started very slippery improved as the day went on, but changes in the direction of the gusty winds in the afternoon added a level of trickiness to the sessions. This made it really hard to get the data required by the engineers in the garage.

On the other hand, there were undeniable highs, with newly-announced additional reserve driver, Callum Ilott (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/72/callum-ilott), making his debut in an official race weekend session; the Brit delivered a consistent and promising performance. Furthermore, we got two, glorious hours of running on such a brilliant circuit, whetting our appetite for the rest of the weekend.


Friday results are not to be trusted and tomorrow's picture may be very different; as always, we'll retire to our trucks to crunch data, trying to squeeze every drop of performance from the C41 ahead of qualifying. Saturday is when things start counting: after a rollercoaster Friday, we're aiming for a slightly smoother ride...


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It was not the easiest of Fridays and we have some work to do before we are where we want to be for qualifying. The track was quite green and the wind, especially in the second session, made it difficult to find proper reference points. We tried some things to improve the balance of the car in FP2, hopefully that gave us enough data to make a step forward overnight. We'll see if it's enough tomorrow."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Jumping in the car for the first time in the difficult conditions we had in FP2 is always hard: the wind gave a very inconsistent feeling, especially when the car is light, but we still have one night to look at the data and find something to improve. We'll see tomorrow where we stand in qualifying, our aim remains the same - to get to Q2 and play it from there - and we know we can make the step forward needed."


Callum Ilott (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/72/callum-ilott): "I really enjoyed being in the car today. The team made it as easy as possible for me to hit the ground running and it was an excellent opportunity to gain experience, make the most of this hour and help the team gather data for the weekend. This is not an easy track, but I was able to build confidence with every run. The first run on hard tyres was good and I was able to get comfortable with the car; when I made the jump to softs I was a bit caught out at first as there was a big grip increase, but I was able to get more of a feeling for where to exploit the grip towards the end of the session. Having worked with the team in the past really helped: all in all, it was a successful day, running consistently and learning a lot."

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe third round of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship began with practice on Friday at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve as teams prepared for Sunday's Portuguese Grand Prix.

Two 60-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - on the 4.653-kilometer (2.891-mile), 15-turn circuit were held under partly cloudy conditions as the Portimao track hosts only its second-ever Formula 1 race weekend - the first having been just six months ago in October 2020.


Both Mazepin and Schumacher went straight to work as pit-lane opened, both drivers searching for grip early in FP1 as a very green track awaited the field. Run plans were identical across the two VF-21's - a wakeup stint on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires followed by baseline laps running new sets of the Red soft compound - on which both drivers set their respective best times. Schumacher posted a lap of 1:21.929 to place 18th with Mazepin recording a 1:24.224 for 20th overall. The morning outing wrapped with a final stint on the used softs - both drivers logging 29 laps each in the session.


Lap times dropped in FP2 as the track began to slowly rubber-up. Schumacher ran a short stint on medium tires before bolting on a set of softs for a qualifying sim - producing a best lap of 1:21.537 from the F2 Champion. He finished his track time with a high-fuel run utilizing the White hard tire for the first time before pitting for his earlier set of softs. Mazepin began the session on the hard compound before he too switched to softs for a qualifying sim - a 1:22.638 the rookie's fastest run. A 10-lap high-fuel stint on mediums followed before a final pit onto softs to end the session. At the checkered Schumacher sat 18th on the timesheet with Mazepin 20th.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 115 laps on Friday across FP1 and FP2 - 57 by Mazepin and 58 by Schumacher.

Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "On average, if you take all the circuits that we go to in F1 and F2, this is one of the least grippy tracks - which is a bit of a shame as the layout is really cool. If you could go a bit faster, and with a bit more confidence through it, it would be nice. We have what we have. The grip is building up with all the laps we're doing so that's good. There are fine lines here and, in that respect, I think we had a good Friday. There's a lot still to be extracted and it's tomorrow that matters."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It was definitely a lot more slippery than I'm used to but it was fun. We had a very lively car out there, it brought back memories from F3 and go-karting. It was interesting.

The track is quite impressive and quite intense. It wasn't difficult to build confidence here, it's just about getting a clean lap and that's very difficult if the car is difficult to drive. I think we're getting into a window where it's more and more resilient. I'm also getting more comfortable with a lively car. If we do our jobs, which we always do, we should be in a good window tomorrow for qualifying."


Guenther Steiner: "For us it was a good FP1 and FP2 as we did a lot of laps - 115 in total I believe. That's good as it meant the drivers got to drive a lot. We learned that the conditions were not easy, the track was a little bit slippery, and the wind picked up quite a bit in FP2. But that was the same for everybody, I know that. Overall though it was a good session. Hopefully we can take what we learn into tomorrow and make progress from there. I'm pretty happy with the day."

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - McLarenDaniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It was a pretty good day in terms of my personal feeling in the car. I felt pretty comfortable from lap one this morning. The more laps I do, the better I feel, but it certainly felt like everything was more familiar when I hopped in the car today. I was ready to get on with it. I think we're getting there.
"We were eighth this afternoon, so we're definitely in the ballpark. I've still got a bit to find but we did make a small step forward for the afternoon session. We'll try to make another step tonight and we should be right in the mix tomorrow."


Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Not a perfect day, a couple of issues here and there which interrupted some of our running. It wasn't too bad, it just meant we didn't quite get through the run plan as easily as we wanted to. We definitely have some work to do overnight on some things. I think there's some quite clear areas we can focus on that, if we improve them a little bit overnight, we can definitely find some performance. So, that's our aim tonight, we'll see if we can come back stronger tomorrow."


Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "Today, both practice sessions were very busy - the shortened 60-minute duration makes it quite challenging to get through the programme. In addition, here in Portugal, the conditions are quite testing because of the low-grip tarmac, the slow warm-up of the tyres and because of the wind, which make driving the car at the limit difficult. We had a very useful Friday and gathered good information on where we would like to improve the car overnight, and also on the likely behaviour of the tyres for the race. We'll put it all together tonight, make some adjustments, and do our best tomorrow."

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - WilliamsDave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: It has been a good day overall and it has been enjoyable being back here in Portugal. The track surface has changed a bit since we were here last autumn, and we have spent a good deal of today understanding how this has influenced the tyre behaviour; we have collected some good data across the compound and fuel ranges and we will use this to finalise our plans for tomorrow.

In the calm conditions this morning, the car was performing well, especially for George. Nicholas was testing a few items and was generally less happy with his car this morning. With the tyres on the edge in the cool conditions of FP1, anything that prevented the drivers from pushing hard quickly led to a large loss of laptime, and this is what Nicholas suffered with.


In FP2 the wind was stronger and gustier, and this harmed our performance a little. However, Nicholas was happier with his car following some changes during the break and although there is still a lot to do overnight to get him fully happy, we have a direction to work with.


As always, there is a lot to do overnight, but we're pleased with our start to the weekend and we look forward to pushing hard again in qualifying tomorrow.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69551/drivers/66/george-russell): Naturally the car has moved forward and the team is looking in great shape. I think we are getting the most out of our package and I'm pleased with that. The wind really picked up in the afternoon and it is no secret that we struggle in those conditions. I don't want to overpromise and underdeliver, but if the wind dies down we will improve and I think P2 was the worst of it this weekend. This circuit is incredibly exposed and undulating, so if you do get a gust of wind you really do feel it. Looking ahead to tomorrow, I think Q2 is the minimum for us and I hope we will be fighting for points on Sunday.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): Overall I'm not very pleased with the day. We definitely have our work cut out for us tonight to try and claw back some of the pace that's missing. Straight away in FP1 there was quite a contrast to how the car felt in Imola. There's a lot of flat-out kinks on this track, corners that should be easy flat-out, that were borderline flat-out for me, especially in FP1. So it's just really a lack of confidence in the car. We did try some things going into FP2 which made it marginally better, but still pretty much the exact same struggles as in FP1. So not how you want a Friday to go, but we'll do some homework tonight, try to reset and find some pace tomorrow.

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow had a trouble-free Friday of free practice for the Portuguese Grand Prix, which takes place this Sunday at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve di Portimao near Portimao.

In the first free practice session, Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) started off running the Hard tyre as they got used to the track, notable for its many changes of gradient and a low level of grip, which was made even worse because of rain in the past few days. On this compound, they posted times of 1'20"759 and 1'20"858 respectively. In the second half of the session, both SF21s were fitted with the Soft tyres that Charles and Carlos used to set their best times. The Monegasque stopped the clocks in 1'19"884, while the Spaniard lapped in 1'20"680. They each completed 27 laps.


In the second hour, Sainz and Leclerc started off on the Medium tyres. Carlos did a 1'20"197, while Charles posted a 1'20"987. Halfway through the session, the team went for a qualifying simulation, with both drivers running the Softs: Sainz now managed a 1'20"197, while Leclerc did a 1'20"360. For the final twenty minutes the work involved running in race configuration, with both drivers lapping at a pretty consistent pace. Over the course of both sessions, the team also evaluated some parts that might be used in the upcoming races.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): It was quite a good start to the weekend. It was fun to drive, the track was very slippery and especially with the wind it was tricky. It's a real pleasure to drive in these conditions. You are always on the limit with the car and I really enjoy that.


FP2 was a lot of fun, there were a lot of gusts of wind all around the track. We completed the whole programme we had planned and it looks like we are quite competitive. The short runs were good, the long-runs a little bit less so and I think that is the main weakness for me today so I still have to work on that. We are all very close and I think it will come down to who makes the least mistakes in qualifying and the race.


I hope it will be a good weekend for us and that we can build on this positive first day.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): Another positive Friday, another day of building experience with the car. We are maintaining our positive learning curve, as this weekend the conditions and the tarmac are very different to the previous venues. Bahrain and Imola were high-grip tracks, while here in Portimao it was quite slippery and really windy today. I like the challenge of having to find the grip where there isn't any! Last year, I really enjoyed racing here a lot.


We are fully focused on tomorrow. We saw in Imola that Friday may be misleading when comparing our one lap pace to our competitors, so we are wary of that. I think the key to the weekend is going to be understanding the tyres, as we set similar times on Soft and Mediums. We need to master the car's behaviour with the different compounds, understand how to warm up the tyres properly and then identify when is the right time to try and set the fastest lap. Looking forward to tomorrow. Vamos!

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - Aston MartinLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It is great to be back in Portugal. The track is a lot of fun and the elevation changes are a real challenge inside the car. The conditions were not ideal today, which made it quite tricky to find the best balance - but I think everyone would say the same after today's running. We will all be looking to make gains tomorrow. With just six tenths separating the top 10 cars, qualifying should be unpredictable and a great watch for the fans back home. I am excited to get going tomorrow."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was not easy to get the laps together out there because although the track surface has more grip than it did in last year's race, it is still quite tricky. The windy conditions were also challenging, but it did not stop us completing plenty of laps and working through the programme. Every lap is important for understanding the car and making improvements, so it was positive in that sense. Getting the balance right for qualifying and making sure we hook up the laps tomorrow is the focus tonight."

Portugal GP: Practice team notes - PirelliValtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) set the fastest time of the day in FP1 at the Portimao circuit on the P Zero Red soft tyre this morning, while his Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) team mate Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) topped FP2 on the same compound. In both sessions, the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) of Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) was second-quickest, while Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) was fourth-fastest in both practice sessions.

The afternoon session was somewhat warmer than the morning, with track temperatures peaking at 39 degrees centigrade and ambient temperatures in the region of 20 degrees centigrade. There was also some wind in the afternoon, which occasionally affected the aerodynamic performance of the cars. The FP2 session was delayed by 10 minutes due to safety checks on drain covers, but ran for the full allocated hour.


In the morning, the majority of the drivers ran the P Zero White hard tyre before switching to the soft tyre at the end of the session. In the afternoon, most of the field started on the P Zero Yellow medium tyre before going onto the soft for a qualifying simulation.


The P Zero White hard is currently around 0.8 seconds per lap slower than the P Zero Yellow medium here, while the P Zero Red soft tyre is about 0.4 seconds per lap faster than the medium. The gap between the medium and hard is slightly less than expected, whereas the gap from soft to medium is as anticipated.


Mario Isola: "It was a reasonably straightforward pair of free practice sessions in Portugal with no big surprises, apart from a bit more wind in the afternoon that affected the times slightly, making the track slower. The tyre performance exceeded expectations, with just a little bit of graining on the front left of the softer compounds in the morning on a 'green' track. This improved in the warmer conditions of the afternoon. The track surface is still smooth making it sometimes challenging for the drivers to find the right level of grip. With a big pit stop time penalty, it should be a one-stop race on Sunday for the majority of drivers and we can already see that all three compounds could play an important role in this - which is why all the compounds were run extensively throughout the day".

Durante la sesión FP2, en el chat, surgió la duda sobre el número de escapes diferentes a poder utilizar por cada piloto por temporada sin penalizar, según el Reg. Deportivo son 8:


23.3 a) Unless he drives for more than one Competitor (see 23.3(c) below), and subject to the additions described below, each driver may use no more than 3 engines (ICE), 3 motor generator units-heat (MGU-H), 3 turbochargers (TC), 2 energy stores (ES), 2 control electronics (CE), 3 motor generator units-kinetic (MGU-K) and 8 sets of Engine exhaust systems during a Championship.

With the consent of (and at the sole discretion of) the FIA, the numbers above will be increased by one for any driver using a power unit provided by a new power unit manufacturer (as defined in Appendix 9) taking part in their first Championship.

Should the number of races in the 2021 Championship drop to 19 or less, the permitted number of motor generator units-kinetic (MGU-K) will be reduced to 2.


Las penalizaciones por infringir dicha norma son las siguientes:

23.3 b) Should a driver use more than the numbers set in a) above of any one of the elements during a Championship, a grid place penalty will be imposed upon him at the first Event during which each additional element is used. Penalties will be applied according to the following table and will be cumulative:

The first time an additional element is used: Ten (10) grid place penalty.

The next times an additional element of the same type is used: Five (5) grid place penalty.

If a driver incurs a penalty exceeding fifteen (15) grid places he will be required to start the race from the back of the starting grid.

Any of the seven elements will be deemed to have been used once the car’s timing transponder has shown that it has left the pit lane.

During any single Event, if a driver introduces more than one of the same power unit element which is subject to penalties, only the last element fitted may be used at subsequent Events without further penalty.

Algunas conclusiones de la Jornada de Prácticas del Viernes:

5 things we learned from Friday practice for the Portuguese Grand Prix

Mercedes found themselves at the top of the pile in both Friday practice sessions at Portimao, but that isn’t the true picture, so say our data crunchers. Here are five things we learned after the first day of running in Portugal...

1. The RB16B looks a little tricky – but has raw pace

This wasn’t the smoothest of days for Red Bull, with Max Verstappen encountering vibrations in first practice and then a brake-by-wire issue in FP2 (https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.fp2-hamilton-heads-verstappen-and-bottas-at-portimao-to-complete-mercedes.3P4fcRl5fIYLv4VQ0eZexo.html). The championship contender looked pretty handy in the first sector and reasonably strong in the second but then things got away from him in the final sector, which is where he lost time on both his attempts on a low fuel run on soft tyres in second practice.

Having said all that, he was still only 0.143s slower than the Mercedes pace – and when Red Bull’s ultimate qualifying simulation pace was corrected for various things, such as fuel load and tyre age, our data shows Red Bull have the quickest car over one lap, albeit by just 0.05s.

That tallies with the pattern that has emerged in the opening two races of the season, with the RB16B – which featured an upgraded floor in Portugal – being the quickest car in qualifying spec. But it also highlights that Red Bull’s challenge this season is making the most of that package and translating that raw speed into a reward.

“The car felt alright but still some work to do for tomorrow, that’s for sure,” said Verstappen. “But overall, yeah, it’s fine.”

https://www.formula1.com/content/dam/fom-website/Upgrade/PortugalManualUploads/Friday/Qualifying%20Pace%20Lap.png.transform/6col-retina/image.png


The Dutchman, who is just one point behind Lewis Hamilton (https://www.formula1.com/en/results/driver-standings.html) in the championship fight, bemoaned the tricky Portimao surface that made it tricky for everyone to get comfortable with their cars.“It’s very tricky out there – and it’s a shame,” he said. “Because it’s all about tyre prep, tyre temperature, and it shouldn’t be like that, but it’s the same for everyone.” He added: “It seems like [we are close to Mercedes] but we still have work to do.”

His team mate Sergio Perez had a similar read of the car’s performance, but reckons if they can find solutions overnight, Red Bull are very much in the hunt for pole on Saturday. “We have pretty good pace, so definitely we should in the mix to fight for pole,” he said.

Their race pace is looking even more impressive, the four-time world champions extending their advantage to 0.25s over chief rivals Mercedes in this metric. But can they get in a position to take advantage of that on Sunday, by mastering the slippery conditions in qualifying.

2. Damage hindered both Mercedes cars on Friday

It’s unusual not to see Mercedes top one if not both of our qualifying and race simulation charts, but it’s clear they have a real fight on their hands this year from the Honda-powered Red Bull team, who have made steps in both the chassis and engine departments.Mercedes’ trackside chief Andrew Shovlin said Valtteri Bottas seemed “quite comfortable” with the W12 from the start of the day, which enabled him to “get into some useful set-up investigations” but it wasn’t such a smooth day for Hamilton. “Lewis struggled more with the rear end, and while he topped the timesheets, we've got some work to do to improve the balance for him tomorrow,” added Shovlin.

He also revealed that the team found some damage on both cars at the end of the day which “will have been costing some performance and will certainly explain some of Lewis’ issues on the long run. But even with that corrected, we could do with finding a bit more pace”.


Their data tallies with ours, in that the single lap looks very close between them and Red Bull, but their numbers also suggest that Ferrari were, in Shovlin’s words, “consistently around our pace”. On the long runs, Shovlin believes they “all seem to overlay pretty closely, so hopefully that's a sign we'll be in for an exciting race on Sunday”.Hamilton admitted his quick lap (https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.hamilton-predicting-exciting-fight-for-pole-with-little-to-choose-between.6zyFctsM61OKtF61vSZVfK.html) in FP2 “wasn’t perfect”, with our ideal lap data – created by adding a driver’s best mini sectors together – suggesting he left a staggering 0.835s on the table, a couple of tenths less than his team mate Valtteri Bottas. When corrected, our ideal lap table puts the two Mercedes on top of the pile, with Bottas leapfrogging Verstappen.

Getting the best out of the car on this tricky surface, which caused problems last year following resurfacing, looks likely to define who will come out on top in round three of this year’s title fight.

“The track has improved from last year, slightly more grip and definitely a step in the right direction,” said Bottas. “Tomorrow it is going to be important to get the heat in the tyres in the right way – it's going to make a big difference. It will be close between us and Red Bull and could swing either way. Whoever finds more lap time overnight gets pole.”

3. Ferrari head the midfield pack

McLaren may sit P3 in the constructors’ championship, but it appears that chief rivals Ferrari have the upper hand around Portimao.The Italian team, who brought a new floor to the last round in Imola, brought another updated floor to Portugal to run in Friday practice before taking it off the car for the rest of the weekend.

The numbers reflect very favourably in both short and long run metrics, with the Scuderia 0.33s off the pace in qualifying sims in P3 – and they retain that ranking in the race sims, albeit dropped back to 0.59s off the pace.“The short runs were positive today, the long runs looked quite good too, though a bit less on my side, so I need to work a little bit on that,” said Charles Leclerc. “I think this is the main weakness for me today, but it looked good on the other car with Carlos [Sainz] so I just need to fix it a little bit and it should be better tomorrow.”

Sainz led the race briefly last year for McLaren and seems to excel in low-grip conditions. It’s perhaps why he was a very impressive fourth (https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.fp2-hamilton-heads-verstappen-and-bottas-at-portimao-to-complete-mercedes.3P4fcRl5fIYLv4VQ0eZexo.html) in the classification in FP2 – but he was wary of getting too far ahead of himself.“I do like low grip conditions,” said Sainz. “It’s always something that I guess is in my nature and I do like the hassle of having to find grip in places where there is not. But at the same time, we saw in Imola that on Friday we tend to be a bit stronger than maybe on Saturday, Sunday. Is that because of fuel, or engine, I’m not sure, then we see other teams taking bigger steps on Saturday – so I’m going to keep it on the cautious side and see how it goes tomorrow.”

4. Alpine react well to the tricky conditions

Neither Fernando Alonso nor Esteban Ocon were in the mood to get carried away on Friday, when we spoke after their very impressive showing in practice.The Alpine squad entered the season hoping to challenge for P3, but instead found themselves towards the back of the midfield. Finishing fifth and sixth in practice is nonetheless an improvement, even if it is only Friday.

“We were happy with the car today,” said Alonso. “Obviously it’s only Friday as you said, but we were comfortable from Lap 1, and we didn’t touch the set-up much because everything felt reasonably okay. Then we tried to put some laps just for me to get used to the track, and to know a little bit more about the tyres.“The positions will not be too different compared to Imola or Bahrain – I don’t think there are any big changes in the order, it’s just a different Friday, a different approaching maybe comparing teams but let’s see, fingers crossed that we can keep the pace tomorrow.”

Ocon added: “I think it will be close tomorrow. It will be a tough battle with everybody, looking at how close the times are. I think this track is still a challenge for everybody. The grip has improved compared to last year, but it’s still quite tricky out there, it’s moving quite a lot, so it will be a fight. It was good enough for today, but tomorrow it will be tight.”Our data suggests getting both cars into the top 10 in qualifying is a real possibility, as they are fourth best in the low-fuel short run pecking order, 0.54s off the pace and around a tenth clear of AlphaTauri.They drop behind McLaren in the race simulations, but only by 0.06s per lap, meaning it could be very close for those bottom four points-paying positions on Sunday.


5. McLaren pace a bit of an unknown

Despite briefly leading the race in Portugal last year, this wasn’t one of McLaren’s strongest tracks – and so there was some trepidation that this could be a tricky round for them.

Lando Norris – who has finished in the top four in both the opening races – said he wasn’t optimistic (https://www.formula1.com/en/video/2021/4/Lando_Norris__McLaren_have__work_to_do__to_be_conf ident_about_Q3.html) he will be able to make it into the top 10 this weekend, but Daniel Ricciardo felt differently and reckons it’s wide open behind Mercedes and Ferrari.

On the raw data front, they may well have a fight on their hands to make it into Q3 with both cars, McLaren ending up sixth in the pecking order, just 0.03s quicker than Aston Martin and 0.13s ahead of Williams, who looked top-10 fast (https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.russell-targeting-a-minimum-of-q2-and-points-on-sunday-after-a-promising.25YgreNubWu67WySUIngKJ.html) in Portugal until the wind picked up for FP2 and they went backwards.


But McLaren’s race fortunes look more promising, with simulations suggesting they have the fourth best package in this metric, 0.75s/lap slower than Red Bull, but only 0.16s adrift of Ferrari in third.So even if qualifying is tricky, all is not lost for McLaren, especially given this is a circuit in which overtaking is certainly possible.

Resultados FP3
Sábado, 1 de mayo de 2021


El más rápido ha sido esta vez Max VERSTAPPEN, que la logrado quedar por delante de los Mercedes de HAMILTON y de BOTTAS.

El aumento del viento en la zona del tercer sector, les ha complicado la conducción, viéndose varios errores y siendo muy complicado mejorar los tiempos.

Tiempos muy apretados con OCON finalizando 5º, por detrás de Checo PÉREZ y por delante de LECLERC y Carlos SAINZ.

Fernando ALONSO ha terminado 14º, aunque su mejor tiempo fue eliminado por superar los límites en la curva 1.

FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN GRANDE PRÉMIO DE PORTUGAL 2021 - Autódromo Internacional do Algarve -Portimão
Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Sábado, 1 de mayo de 2021


Complicada sesión por el viento racheado en la que la pole se la ha llevado Valtteri BOTTAS por solo 7 milésimas sobre Lewis HAMILTON.

Bottas fue el único que en Q3 mejoró su tiempo de Q2. Los Mercedes sorprendieron al montar medio en su segundo intento en Q3 pero ninguno de los dos mejoró su tiempo.

Max VERSTAPPEN no ha terminado muy contento a pesar de haber marcado el tercer mejor tiempo. Su primer tiempo en Q3 fue anulado y se la tuvo que jugar a una vuelta al final de la sesión, cuando la pista no era más rápida.

Junto a Max estará mañana Checo PÉREZ. Los cuatro partirán con el neumático medio.

Desde la quinta posición saldrá Carlos SAINZ que en su primer intento en Q2 con el medio se encontró con tráfico y decidieron no jugársela, por lo que montaron el blando. Será el primero con ese neumático. Compartirá línea de salida con Ocon, que ha hecho una gran calificación.

La siguiente línea la completan NORRIS y LECLERC, que saldrá mañana con el neumático medio.

GASLY y VETTEL completan las diez primeras posiciones. Gran trabajo de Vettel. A ver si mañana sigue en esta tónica. Sería muy bueno para su moral.

RUSSELL será el primero de los pilotos que podrá elegir neumático para la salida de mañana.

Fernando ALONSO ha terminado 13º. Ha comentado no entender cómo ha perdido tanto entre los libres 3 y la Q2. Ha comentado que teniendo en cuenta las cargas de gasolina, la diferencia ronda el segundo.

Jo, que extraño está todo (relativamente). De un GP a otro...o ya de unos libres a una clasi.

Aqui no daba la impresión de que ni con una vuelta buena Verstappen hubiera podido conseguir la pole. Y que la haya hecho Bottas, mas extraño aun.

La facilidad con la que Vettel parece que se ha metido en Q3, cuando llevaba siglos sin pisarla.

El sopapazo que les han metido Ocon y Norris a sus compañeros aun se oye repicar.

Sainz demostrando lo bueno que es. No se amilana pese a tener a una bestia parda clasificador al lado.

Otra clasificación muy entretenida, me encanta el circuito todo hay que decirlo.

Bottas se la ha "medio jugado" en la primera vuelta de la Q3 y le ha salido bien, le ha servido para llevarse una pole que nadie le otorgaba.

En parte, porque la pista no ha mejorado como era de esperar, y las condiones de viento han impedido que los pilotos pudiesen arriesgar sin salirse en la T4 y T14, lo que les ha dejado sin su mejor tiempo a más de uno.

Verstappen llevaba desde ayer quejándose de vibraciones e inestabilidades en el equilibrio de su Red Bull, sin duda, las ráfagas de viento tienen algo que ver.

Ricciardo y Alonso no terminan de cogerle "el tino" a sus respectivos coches cuando arrecian las condiciones meteorológicas (viento esta vez).

Pérez parece que tiene una de cal y otra de arena en el día a día, hoy ha tocado la de cal, pero lo importante será mañana. Veremos. Aún así, el propio Checo se queja de que tampoco está contento con el balance de su monoplaza.

Vettel parece haber revivido, aunque nadie lo tiene claro, creo que ni siquiera él sabe cómo ha sido en el día de hoy, pues ayer viernes estaba también "perdido".

El único de los "recien llegados" que está demostrando que tiene el asunto dominado es Sainz, que desde el primer GP le está metiendo presión a su nuevo compañero, y poco le está faltando para empezar a batirle en el duelo dominical.

Vamos con las impresiones de los equipos después de la sesión de Clasificación:

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesValtteri claimed the17th pole position of his career and first of the season. Lewis was 0.007s behind in P2 to complete the lockout.

Both drivers will start tomorrow on the Medium compound tyre, as will the two Red Bulls in the second row.


Today marks the 75th front row lockout for the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) F1 Team in the modern era.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): We worked hard to figure out the issues I was experiencing in qualifying, we put things right and this is the result - it's more like how it should be, so I'm happy. In the first two races, I knew the speed was there but my main issue was tyre warm-up. We've put a lot of focus on that, we learned some lessons and I always knew our hard work would pay off. The key was to stay calm, execute the plan and focus on the small details, particularly on the out-laps.
We've been stronger than expected which is a positive surprise but it's only qualifying, I'm already thinking about tomorrow. We know the Red Bulls have a strong race car and we are expecting an epic battle.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Not that enjoyable of a session because I couldn't get that many good laps in but I'm not too frustrated, I only did one good lap and that was in Q2. Of course I'd have loved to put more good laps together but it was tricky out there. It's a slippery track, the tyres are hard so you need to do multiple laps to put temperature into them and it's quite a peaky balance - it works for a second and then falls away very quickly, it's on a knife-edge.
It wasn't meant to be but Valtteri did a great job today and I'm just focused on the race. Now is the time to understand strategy for tomorrow and work out where the opportunities lie. It's not an easy track to follow but we shall we see - I hope we have good enough pace to fight for the win, tomorrow we'll go all in.


Toto Wolff: Qualifying was always our weakness in the first two races and now we're back at the front. We have seen these kinds of performances from Valtteri in the past and today was a mega day for him. But I have no doubt, like I've always said, he can be right up there. Tomorrow we have two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) with two Red Bulls just behind, good ingredients for a nice race!


Andrew Shovlin: Congratulations to Valtteri on his 17th career pole position; he's looked solid all weekend in challenging conditions so it's a very well-deserved result. It's also a fine result for the team to be starting with both cars on the front row - the 75th front row of the modern era for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) F1.


It was a fairly difficult session; it wasn't clear whether the medium or soft would ultimately be the faster tyre and we also had to understand whether a preparation lap was better than going straight for lap one. By final qualifying, no one had come close to matching Lewis's time on medium from Q2 so we decided to hedge our bets by running both compounds. As it happened, the track got much slower in the final minutes so tyre choice wasn't important but we were just grateful that we'd done enough to secure the front row. We had wanted both cars on the medium tyre to start the race and on balance, we're happy to have Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) on the same start-tyre given that we have track position. Our main concern will be the warm-up on that compound, the soft runners on the third row and behind will have a grip advantage that could last a lap or two so that may might things tricky.

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "Third is of course not what we wanted but it's not too bad after I had a Q3 lap time deleted, which would actually have put us fastest even though I lost time with the snap at Turn 4. We struggled with the balance in Q1 and Q2 because of the track surface, and everyone is chasing grip, but we got to a decent level in Q3 so I don't think we are too far off. It was really one of those sessions where you could end up in P1 or P3 out of the blue. You could do a lap which was pretty good and then put another set of tyres on, and if you had just a little bit of a different out lap and tyre preparation, with the lack of grip around here it makes a big difference and is hard to predict. I think we are still competitive and it will be different in the race tomorrow. Our long runs have been ok and although it's going to be hard to follow with the grip levels we will first focus on a clean start and then put the pressure on."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It wasn't a great qualifying on my side, it was very messy in terms of finding my rhythm and so I'm not entirely happy with my lap time. I wasn't very happy with the balance and I just struggled a lot so it's a shame we weren't able to qualify higher. This track is all about the tyres and getting them to the right temperature which is very difficult. I tried everything in terms of warm up with my out laps, build laps, push laps but nothing seemed to work. The conditions with the wind made it more tricky and they probably suited the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) better but we still have a good starting position and a great opportunity tomorrow so anything can happen. I think it will be a tight battle around us so I'm looking forward to that. We just need to put the pressure on the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and hopefully we can fight for a podium."


Christian Horner: "It was a difficult qualifying session today, particularly with the very windy conditions, but both drivers progressed through to Q3 on the medium tyres which gives us better strategy options in tomorrow's race where we lock out the second row of the grid. Max's first run in Q3 was quick enough for pole but unfortunately his lap was deleted for track limits after a gust of wind at Turn 4 unsettled the car, causing him to run only millimetres wide. Max's second and final run was then compromised by traffic so it was a rather frustrating third place for him. Checo did well meanwhile to recover from a little scare in Q1 after he briefly visited the gravel trap to take fourth alongside Max.

Hopefully both cars can get a good launch and a clean run in tomorrow's race to make life difficult for the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) in front."

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Reasonably happy with today. A little bit annoyed because we could've been a few positions further up - maybe three - and fourth on the grid, I would say. I can be confident in saying that. I got caught on my Q3 run two lap on the new tyre because of another car backing up in front of me out of the last corner, so I had to abort the lap quite early on, which was frustrating.

"Apart from that, I'm pleased with my performance today. The car was good. Tricky to drive, but fast, and I was still P7, surprisingly, so I'm happy. There are definitely some positives and we'll see what we can do in the race tomorrow."

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "A frustrating day. We'd had a positive day yesterday, so I wouldn't have bet on this today. I'm not really sure where it went wrong yet, we'll have to look at it this evening. Q1 goes very quickly and we just didn't get any clean laps in. The Medium tyre felt pretty good, and I was pretty happy. Then the first lap on the Soft was a bit interrupted by traffic at the start of the lap, and the end of the lap was just a little bit messy. We tried to go again but the tyre fell away really quickly and we just didn't have the pace.


"P16 is far from where I want to be, so I've just got to figure it out, get some sleep and wake up tomorrow ready to do better."


Andreas Seidl,Team Principal: "P7 and P16 is not what we had in mind today when we arrived at the track this morning. We're definitely disappointed at the moment with the outcome of qualifying.


"Unfortunately, Daniel, after three good practice sessions when he felt a lot more comfortable in the car, couldn't repeat the performance today in Q1, which unfortunately meant an early end to his qualifying. This evening, together with Daniel, we'll analyse what happened.


"On Lando's side, it was again great to see the potential of the car at this track with an in-form Lando behind the wheel. Ending up P7 feels like a disappointment at the moment, looking at the lap-time Lando did in Q2. The track got slower in Q3 and conditions were very inconsistent, but still a better position was possible. Unfortunately, on his final run in Q3 he got caught out by another car slowing in front of him, so he didn't get a chance to set a time on the new tyres.


"On the positive side, it was again great to see the potential competitiveness of the car, which is a result of the continuous development and hard work by the team back at the factory. Those improvements in performance are very encouraging and we'll take them with us into the race tomorrow.


"As always, we'll put this disappointment behind us as quickly as possible and refocus again on tomorrow when points get distributed. We have two good drivers and a great team that will try to fight back tomorrow."

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I am feeling happier after that session. We are starting inside the top 10 and will be in the middle of a big fight for points. There is still a lot of hard work ahead of us, but things are starting to click for me and become a bit more automatic, which is helping me focus more on my driving. I am still learning about the car, but today I felt more comfortable. The conditions were tricky - despite the sunshine - and the gusts of wind were quite unpredictable and made the car feel quite light. My final lap in Q3 was not the best. The wind direction had changed again, and I lost some time as a result, which is costly when the midfield is so tight. Overall, though, it was a better session for me. Let's see what we can do tomorrow."

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "A difficult qualifying session and we did not manage to build on the performance level we showed yesterday. I was not very comfortable in the car today and I could not lean on it as much. The traffic at the end of Q1 also did not help and cost me some time on my second run. It is quite a change from yesterday, so we will go away and understand where we can improve and do better next time. Even though today's result is disappointing, I think we will be stronger in the race. That has been the case in the previous two races. It is a track where we saw lots of overtaking last year and I will be pushing hard to make up ground tomorrow. With a strong first lap and a good strategy, I think we can score points."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "It was great to see Sebastian getting to grips with the AMR21 - literally - over the twists, turns, uphills and downhills of Portimao this afternoon. We made a few set-up changes prior to qualifying, and it seemed they worked well, because he was 'on it' throughout Q1 and Q2. In Q3, he was not as competitive, ending up P10. Lance was badly affected by traffic in Q1, and the tricky, windy conditions did not help him either; as a result, he just failed to get through to Q2. But he has been driving extremely well so far this year, he says he will be striving to score points tomorrow, and we think that is a legitimate ambition despite his P17 grid slot."

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team will line up with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) sixth and Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) thirteenth on the grid for tomorrow's Heineken Portuguese Grand Prix after a challenging qualifying session in windy conditions at the Algarve International Circuit.

Both drivers started qualifying with a strong performance in Q1 and safely made it through to the next session, with Esteban fourth and Fernando thirteenth. Esteban required two runs, his second effort sealing his entry into Q2, with Fernando able to abort his second lap.


For Q2, Esteban showed he only needed one push lap and finished comfortably inside the top 10 with a 1min 18.586secs on new Soft tyres, which was good enough for fourth position.


Fernando sat on the cusp of the top 10 shoot-out on his first run on Softs and, although he improved on his second timed lap, it wasn't enough to join Esteban in Q3, finishing the session thirteenth on a 1min 19.456secs.


Representing the sole remaining A521 in Q3 for the second race in a row, Esteban fell short of the top eight on his first push lap on new Softs with the wind picking up around the track. But the Frenchman pressed on and found a significant improvement where others couldn't on his second lap, finishing the session in sixth to secure his best qualifying result since the 2020 Belgian Grand Prix.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "I'm very pleased with that one! Thanks to the team for their hard work and dedication in recent weeks as it's made the difference today. We made a good step between practice and qualifying, and everything worked really well. We aim to keep finding these improvements and carry this progress forward. We're starting up there for the race, so that's good news. We know it'll be challenging tomorrow but overtaking is possible and there are some differences on starting tyre throughout the grid. The aim is to score points."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was not easy today and the weather conditions changed quite a lot from final practice. We lost something between FP3 and qualifying so we need to look at this and understand what happened. The good thing is we can choose the tyre we start on tomorrow and this gives us more options on strategy. Points are scored tomorrow, so it's still all to play for."

Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "We're very pleased with sixth position today for Esteban. He did a great job throughout all of the sessions today and was very consistent. The team also executed our plan in qualifying very well so we can be pleased with that. It was a pity for Fernando, but on the positive we do have some options for his strategy tomorrow. I think we are in a good position for the race and that's when it all counts."

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - FerrariQualifying for the Portuguese Grand Prix turned out to be very close, as has been the case so far this season, with around a dozen cars all capable of fighting for a place on the third row of the grid. Saturday's performance matched our expectations, with Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) fifth and Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) eighth and when analysing the result, there are a few positives to consider.

For the second time in three races, Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow managed to get both drivers into the final part of qualifying. Today, only the two teams fighting at the front also managed this. Conditions were difficult, with low grip, constantly changing, because of the wind that varied in intensity and direction from minute to minute.


Charles produced a great lap in Q2, managing to make the cut on the Medium compound tyres, matched only by the drivers from the two top teams. However, in the final part, the Monegasque immediately posted a reasonable time of 1`19"306, but was unable to improve on his second run. Starting on the Mediums, probably the best choice for the race, should give Charles an advantage, given that his nearest competitors will have to pit earlier than him.


For the first time this season, there will not be a Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) on the second row, but it's equally true that in the first two races, at least one of the drivers from the best performing teams had made a mistake, leaving fourth place up for grabs.

That didn't happen in Portimao and Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) was thus the third ranked team this Saturday. It was Carlos' turn to shine in the final minutes, emerging as the best of the midfield pack on both his two runs and his time of 1'19"039 was good enough for fifth on the grid.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): It was a very hard qualifying out here in Portimão due to the gusty wind and the tricky conditions but I'm happy with my session. When I was out on track I could feel I was driving well and we have been taking good decisions on the setup of the car all weekend.


The biggest positive for me is that my approach seems to be working fine and the feeling with the car gets better with every session. There is still a lot of room for improvement, but I think today was a good step and I'm happy about that, though I would have preferred to make it into Q3 with the mediums. My pace was good with that compound and if it hadn't been for the traffic with an other car on the second push I think I would have been in a better position to make the cut. However, since I had saved one set of softs after a strong first run in Q1, we decided to avoid unnecessary risks and qualified to Q3 with softs. Once in the top ten, a good couple of laps gave us P5 for tomorrow.


Despite the tyre disadvantage for the race, I'm confident that with a strong start and tyre management from my side we can fight for good points. Lets race! Hasta manana.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): My performance in Q3 was just not good enough today and I wasn't at the level I wanted to be. Everyone was struggling in these conditions and I think I pushed a little bit too hard. Once you do that, the rear of the car starts to move a lot and that's what happened on my fastest lap.


On the positive side, I did a good job going through on the mediums in Q2, which I think will be a strong point in the race tomorrow, especially at the start. We saw more graining on the softs during free practice, so I hope that this will give us an advantage with those around me all starting on the red tyres.


We are all really close so in the end, the one who makes the least mistakes will be the one to get ahead.


Laurent Mekies, Racing Director: All in all, qualifying more or less matched our expectations after what we saw yesterday. Track conditions were very difficult to assess, with an annoying wind, but we secured a good result, getting both drivers into Q3, which only two other teams managed to do. Carlos did a great job today, especially in Q3, when he got everything out of the car.


Charles could not quite match that in the final part, but his good performance in Q2 means he can start the race on the mediums which, on paper, is a significant advantage in terms of strategy, compared to our closest rivals.


In this first part of the season, on all three tracks so far, in very different conditions, we have consistently been at the top end of the midfield, always getting at least one of our drivers ahead of the others. That was our goal in terms of outright performance and we have achieved it, even though we know we have to work hard to repeat it at each and every Grand Prix. Now, tomorrow's objective is to convert today's potential in the race.

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm very satisfied with my Qualifying performance today, we seem to find this track more difficult than the last few, so to make it through to Q3 again was positive. We knew coming to Portugal that the characteristics of this circuit would be trickier for us and I think it's been obvious since we arrived that we've struggled slightly with the different conditions, particularly the wind. The team have worked hard since FP1 to change the balance of the car but we're not completely happy with it yet, so we'll need to work more tonight to try to understand this more. Whilst I'm not completely comfortable in the car yet, I'm happy we made it through to the final Qualifying session, as it seems that our midfield competitors have made some steps forward this weekend, and I think we're in a position to take some more points tomorrow."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "This is my first time driving here and by the end of FP2 I think I'd adapted well to the circuit, so I felt really prepared ahead of Qualifying this afternoon. For me, the lap was good but the tyre just wasn't there – I had no grip at all with the Softs and it almost felt like I was driving with the hard tyre until the final sector. It was a tricky Qualifying session today and I'm really disappointed, but I'll analyse the data tonight with my engineers and see where I can improve. Tomorrow, hopefully my race pace will be better, and I will try my best to make my way up the grid."


Guillaume Dezoteux (Head of Vehicle Performance): "After a difficult Friday, the team have worked on extracting the most from our package for Qualifying today. In FP3 we saw we'd made a step in the right direction but getting the soft tyre to perform as we wanted was still a challenge. We made further adjustments to the car, as well as focussing on tyre preparation, for Qualifying and we continued to see progression with both drivers. Q1 wasn't easy, with both Yuki and Pierre experiencing traffic alongside the difficult conditions. Yuki struggled a lot in Q2 and wasn't able to make a lot of progress, unfortunately finishing in 14th. Meanwhile, Pierre was able to make it through to Q3 but never put the perfect lap together in the final session. Tonight, we will review the different race scenarios and the target will be to finish in the points. Last year Pierre had a solid race starting from the same position, so we are aiming to do this again.

For Yuki starting further back, it will be more difficult, but we know he's great at overtaking and hopefully he can make his way forward into the points."

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa RomeoThe third qualifying battle of the season saw Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN deliver a good turn of pace, with Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) going close to a place in Q3, finally settling into P12. Team-mate Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) also made it to Q2, making it two cars from our team in the middle segment of qualifying, and recorded the 15th time in the standings.

After a tricky Friday, in which the drivers reported a challenging feeling with the car on low fuel, the team delivered the improvement that was required for the qualifying session. With an injection of performance into the C41, both drivers battled for a place in the top ten, eventually giving a strong account for the team.


The result puts us in a strong position for tomorrow's race, especially in account of the good long-run pace displayed yesterday. It will be a long, hard battle on the up-and-downs of the Algarve, but we're confident we're going to be in this fight from the first to the very last lap.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Putting both cars in Q2 was the minimum objective for today, and we achieved it: to fight for a place in Q3 with Antonio shows how much of an improvement we made overnight, so big credit to the team for turning our single-lap performance around after a difficult Friday. Antonio felt really good and delivered two strong laps in Q2 to finish only a little more than a tenth away from the top ten; Kimi was on course to have a similarly good time on both his runs, but unfortunately couldn't get the lap together. Still, to have two cars in a battle for a place in Q3 is a positive step. We start tomorrow with free choice of tyres and aiming to be in the battle for the points from lights to flag: our race pace looked promising yesterday and we need to translate it into a good result."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We could have got a better result today as we had made a step forward compared to yesterday, but unfortunately we couldn't put a lap together in the final run. I missed one corner in both my laps on the last set of tyres in Q2 and P15 is what you can expect when this happens. We'll try again tomorrow: we know it's not going to be easy, but we will give our best and see where we end up at the end of the day."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I am happy with P12, especially because it shows how much we're progressing: we were very close to a place in Q3, but at least we can choose our optimal strategy tomorrow. The car felt much better today than yesterday, even though the conditions were still very tricky. We seem to have regained the pace we showed in Bahrain after some bad luck in qualifying in Imola, but now we have to make it matter on Sunday. We need the right strategy, a good start and a good race: our pace looked good yesterday, so we can have some fun. I am looking forward to it."

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) qualified 19th and 20th, respectively, for Sunday's Portuguese Grand Prix, Round 3 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal.
Both drivers exited qualifying at the end of the opening Q1 knockout round - with only the top 15 advancing to Q2. Mazepin and Schumacher had two timed stints utilizing a new set of Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires for each run. Mazepin clocked a 1:21.941 first time out, bettered by a 1:21.580 next time by only to have the faster lap deleted for exceeding track limits at turn one. Regardless, with his second set of softs on Mazepin dropped his best time to a 1:20.912 to place 20th. Schumacher ended qualifying just ahead of his teammate having banked a 1:20.842 on his first outing before improving again on fresh rubber to lap the 4.653-kilometer (2.891-mile) circuit in 1:20.452.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I felt like yesterday was a very difficult day for me as I just wasn't very comfortable with the track or with the car. We then made small steps in the right direction this morning - which I like to see, they're the ones that build foundation. Obviously, the wind has picked up here, which was something I didn't want to happen as no driver likes wind as it makes the car balance very unpredictable, but the grip has improved since yesterday naturally with all the laps being put down. Overall, the car was feeling much better and I think that's a good place to be - we were quite close to getting the maximum out of it."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "Looking at all the free practices I think we were set for higher, but I think some of the other guys and teams managed to make a step ahead with their second set and frankly we didn't. It could be anything on this track - you get the wrong gust of wind at the wrong moment; you lose half a second in the first sector. I think in general we can be happy, we're still making consistent steps forward with each race weekend. There's a big improvement in ourselves and we should be happy with that. I'm feeling more comfortable in the car with every hour and every day, and that makes it easier for me to jump into the car straight away and be on the pace. That's something that's very positive and I'm grateful for the team for teaching me the necessaries to do that."

Guenther Steiner: "We had a good FP3, everything was going in the right direction. In qualifying we were a little bit short of not finishing 19th and 20th. I think we're making progress and getting closer and closer; it just takes a little bit more and we'll make it not to be last. It's encouraging how the guys learn and hopefully tomorrow we make another step on that learning curve and finish the race with both cars. That is our aim."

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69560/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 11th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 18th for the Portuguese Grand Prix. George secured his best qualifying performance for Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) and reached Q2 for the third time this season. He continued to improve throughout both sessions posting his final time of a 1:19.109. Nicholas made good progress throughout the session, posting his quickest lap with a 1:20.285.

Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Today was much more difficult than we expected, with the tyre requiring subtly different preparation than yesterday. Fortunately, after a tricky FP3, we got it right when it counted and having got into Q2 once again, George was able to hone the preparation ready for a final push lap, which he was able to execute brilliantly. We are a bit frustrated not to get into Q3, however, we are in a strong position for tomorrow as the first car with a new tyre to start the race.


Nicholas was very unfortunate in Q1 and having recovered very well from a difficult day yesterday to be sparring with George at the beginning of Q1, it was frustrating to see him miss out on a final push lap at the end of Q1. He was very good today and like in Imola, his mental strength was exemplary. We need to review what we could've done better to help him as he prepared for his final push lap, but when there is such a variety of tyre strategies playing out, it is very difficult to manage all of the traffic.


We have had a good result today and off the back of a strong showing in Imola, this is very pleasing to see. The Team are working well together and are enjoying putting pressure on our competitors. There is a long race ahead tomorrow, but we have got George into a very good position to continue the push to score points. Nicholas too, although further back than he would've liked, is in a position to make good progress during the race.

George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69560/drivers/66/george-russell): It was a great performance from us. I did not expect Q2 after this morning, yet alone P11 on the grid. We made it happen when it counted which seems to be the theme at the moment. It's our best qualifying position in three years so I'm really proud. We all have our responsibilities, and as a team we did a really good job.

Tomorrow we've got to keep moving forward. We have a good race car - it's fast on the straights, so let's see what we can do.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): Today was an improvement as we made some big changes overnight. However, it wasn't the best qualifying for us, and I wasn't able to get a clean lap at the end of Q1. I am still struggling with the car balance along with the track surface, as everyone is sliding around. It was a bit of a frustrating day, but the race is tomorrow, and we must focus on that.

Portugal GP: Qualifying team notes - PirelliValtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) claimed pole ahead of his Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) team mate Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton), with Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) third and fourth. The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) drivers were the only ones to select the P Zero Yellow medium tyre for their final runs in Q3, but they both set their fastest times on their first runs, using the Red soft.

During the Q2 session, which determines which starting tyres the top 10 on the grid will use, most drivers headed out on the medium, with just six starting the session on the P Zero Red soft. In the end, five drivers in the top of the grid will start on the medium tomorrow including the top four: both Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), both Red Bulls, and the Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) of Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc).
The gusting winds seen yesterday persisted today influencing the qualifying sessions and slowing down the track towards the end of the hour. Weather conditions were also similar to yesterday, with qualifying ending in temperatures of 19 degrees ambient and 34 degrees on track.


The 66-lap Portuguese Grand Prix is likely to be a one-stopper, for two key reasons: firstly because the time lost in the pit lane here is too costly to make a two-stopper work, and secondly because wear and degradation on all the compounds seems quite low. With the Portimao circuit being reasonably wide and presenting plenty of overtaking opportunities (as proved by last year's race) the tyre nomination here should allow the drivers to push hard and deliver a lively race. The low wear and degradation should also create quite a wide pit stop window, meaning that the teams will be able to adapt their strategies to take advantage of the best possible moment to make their stops, ensuring track position. As usual, the timing of the stops will also depend on track and air temperatures – which are likely to be similar to today, or perhaps slightly warmer.


Mario Isola: "As they did last year, Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) selected the medium in Q3, but this year they were unable to improve on their first Q3 run using the soft, underlining the different ways of thinking that we are likely to see tomorrow. A one-stop strategy is most probable but the teams are likely to have a few different options when it comes to the timing of the stop. Tomorrow the top 10 is split 50-50 as to which tyres they will start the race on, with those starting on the medium tyre having more tactical flexibility but those starting on the soft not at a disadvantage either. Qualifying shows that all three compounds are set to play their part in the race tomorrow, with all of them also being a valid option for the final stint, depending on individual run plans."

Lo de Alonso fué muy extraño, pero lo de Ricciardo, aun mas...ya en los dos primeros GP's se le vió muy por debajo de Norris aunque lo enmascaró relativamente bien, especialmente en clasificación.

Pero ambos no están ni de lejos a su nivel, ya sea por adaptación u otra cosa.

FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN GRANDE PRÉMIO DE PORTUGAL 2021 - Autódromo Internacional do Algarve -Portimão
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 2 de mayo de 2021


Victoria de Lewis HAMILTON en una carrera en la que ha tenido que adelantar a sus adversarios en pista tras verse adelantado por Verstappen en la resalida tras la aparición del coche de seguridad.

VERSTAPPEN ha terminado 2º. Logró quedar por delante de Bottas pero no se le vió con ritmo suficiente como para poner a Hamilton en apuros.

BOTTAS ha comentado que no ha conseguido que sus neumáticos funcionaran igual que los de Hamilton, además tuvo un problema con un sensor. No logró aprovechar la pole y se tiene que conformar con la tercera posición. Al menos logró marcar la vuelta rápida, gracias a que los comisarios anularon la vuelta que marcó Verstappen por exceder los límites en la curva 14.

Es la 15ª ocasión en la que Hamilton, Verstappen y Bottas comparten podio, los que más lo han hecho.

La cuarta plaza ha sido para Checo PÉREZ, que no hizo una buena salida y se vió superado por Carlos y luego por Norris, lo que le hizo perder un tiempo valioso.

Otra sólida carrera de NORRIS, con un gran ritmo de carrera. Otra carrera que termina entre los 5 primeros y eso que dio unas 40 vueltas con el neumático medio y aguantando el empuje de Leclerc.

LECLERC ha finalizado en 6ª posición. Ha comentado que los neumáticos medios no le funcionaron bien, que tuvo mucho graining. Su experiencia no la valoró Ferrari a la hora de elegir la estrategia de Carlos SAINZ, que fue el primero en parar intentando hacer un undercut a Norris y le montaron medios, unos neumáticos que no funcionaron y que al final le hicieron perder tantos puestos que se quedó fuera de los puntos.

Al Alpine se le ha visto muy bien en carrera y la muestra es ver a Ocon 7º y a Fernando ALONSO 8º. La carrera de Alonso ha ido de menos a más y cuando consiguió poner a tono los duros, su ritmo fue mucho mejor, pudiendo remontar y acercarse a Ocon, que tuvo una carrera muy sólida. Fernando ha comentado que todavia no entiende qué pasó en califación y que de haber salido más adelante, viendo el ritmo de carrera, podría haber terminado perfectamente en 6ª posición.

Los últimos puntos han sido para RICCIARDO y para GASLY.

VETTEL vuelve a quedarse fuera de los puntos al terminar 13º, justo por delante de STROLL. No ha logrado tener buen ritmo, sobre todo al final de la carrera.

El único que no cruzó la línea de meta ha sido RÄIKKONEN, que cometió un error de cálculo al intentar adelantar a su compañero en la recta de meta tras completar la primera vuelta golpeando a GIOVINAZZI por detrás, afortunadamente sin consecuencias para el italiano, pero acabando Kimi con el alerón delantero bajo su coche yéndose fuera de la pista y provocando la aparición del coche de seguridad.

Impresioness de los equipos después de finalizar la prueba:

Portugal GP: Race team notes - MercedesLewis completed a hunter's drive to record his 97th victory in F1, after dropping to third following a safety car restart. Valtteri finished in P3 and secured the bonus point for fastest lap. An exhaust sensor failure cost the Finn precious power and the opportunity to close in on P2 late in the race.Today's race marks the 500th Grand Prix start for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-Benz power in F1.


Lewis (69 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 8 points from Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (61 points) with Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) (37) in P3. Today marks the 122nd Grand Prix at the top of the Drivers' Championship for Lewis, breaking the record he previously shared with Michael Schumacher.


The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (101 points) leads Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (83 points) by 18 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Kane Hemmant, Electronics Support Engineer, accepted the Constructors' trophy on behalf of the team.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): That was such a tough race, physically and mentally, just keeping everything together. It was very windy out there, obviously, so it was easy to put a foot wrong. I didn't quite get as good a start as Valtteri, then lost out on the restart which was not good. I was not happy about that, naturally. But that race was satisfying, when you're in third and have to overtake two amazing drivers - amazing! Having races like that is what I live for.


The gap between us all is so close and every single point is going to count this year. I love the battle, I've loved it since my days in karting and as a team, we can't leave any stone unturned - we've got to continue to push this car, squeeze everything out of it.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Obviously not what I was aiming for today because when you start from pole, you want to bring home the win. I think ultimately the main issue was the first stint - I was struggling for pace and I still don't understand why. The warm-up with the hard tyre was slow after the pit stop and Max managed to catch me. Then we had an exhaust temperature sensor issue later in the race which cost me speed on the straight so it was difficult to close in on Max and fight for P2. Eventually the power came back and I was able to set the fastest lap which could be an important point.
We need to analyse this weekend over the next two days, learn the lessons and then focus on next weekend - we go again.


Toto Wolff: Absolutely stunning drive from Lewis and it seemed under control all through the race. You could see, and hear in his voice, how much he was pushing. An incredible drive. Valtteri had some real pace at the beginning and you could see that it was difficult for Lewis to catch up, it was real speed. But then eventually Lewis managed to get past and off he went.


The exhaust sensor issue was unfortunate for Valtteri later in the race because he really caught up well to Max and then it kind of stabilised at 1.5/1.6 seconds, but he had more to come at the end of the race. We couldn't override the faulty sensor so the engine went into protection mode and that cost him 5 seconds. Valtteri probably would have had a shot on Max at the end if we were not to let him down on the power unit. I think we need to give him credit.


When we were behind in testing and in Bahrain, it's a buzz that I have not felt in the Team since 2013 when we had that first sniff that we could be there. The whole place is excited and continues to be excited. I'd like to be happy after Abu Dhabi at the end of the season but for the time being, we'll take it one step at a time.


Andrew Shovlin: A really impressive and well-deserved win from Lewis; two solid overtakes to take the lead and he controlled it from there to the finish. Valtteri did a good job at the start and the restart but seemed to be lacking a bit of pace on the medium which allowed Verstappen to get within undercut range. That, together with a moment at turn 4, allowed Max to pass. Valtteri had strong pace on the hard tyre and we thought he was going to be able to take the position back from Max until an exhaust temperature sensor put an end to our hopes. As a consolation, he was able to pull enough time on Perez to earn a free stop to go for fastest lap. We'll review the timing of our call as we opened the window for Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) to also have a go and had it not been for Max's mistake at T14, we'd have lost a valuable point to them.


Overall, we can be pleased with the result this weekend, we've consolidated our lead in both championships and we had good pace on low and high fuel. However, the margins are super fine and it's a reminder that we need to get everything right to beat Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). We've got a difficult race next week in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona); it's a tyre overheating track like Bahrain so we'll be using the next few days to prepare ourselves for that challenge.

Portugal GP: Race team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "Something about this track really does not suit our car and I think in general this was a bit of an off weekend in terms of grip and overall pace. We knew last year that we weren't particularly strong here, so this year has been a bit better and we managed to finish ahead of one Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), but it wasn't quite good enough to get them both. Nevertheless, second is still a pretty good result and we always knew this season would be up and down in terms of the tracks we were strong at and the ones Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) were. The race today was pretty decent though and we were all constantly pushing which was nice. I tried to put the pressure on Valtteri in the beginning as he was struggling for grip, but clearly Lewis behind had more pace and he made it past us both. I was then able to undercut Valtteri in the pit stop but you could clearly see on the hard tyres we were just a bit slower, some laps we could match Lewis and others it was just not possible. Towards the end of the race Valtteri was even coming back at me which showed their pace today. It's a shame the Fastest Lap got taken away, stupid track limits [laughs], they should just put gravel back! It is what it is, we always try and I had the gap so we went for it. We scored good points here but I'm looking forward to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), a track that has more normal grip levels and where I have good memories. I think we will also see a clearer picture of how teams have been progressing. It's a long season ahead so a lot can happen."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "Today was a busy race on my side! Lando managed to get past me at Turn 4 but I thought he had all four wheels off the track so I didn't defend thinking he'd have to give the place back due to track limits but that wasn't the case. It was a misjudgment on my side and a mistake but being stuck behind Lando compromised our race and cost us a lot of time. When I got past him my pace was good but I think the damage had already been done. Afterwards we tried to do something different with strategy by going long in the hope of a Safety Car but it didn't work out and fourth was the maximum we could do. We are definitely making good progression with the car and the race pace, I am understanding it more and more with the extra kilometres I am driving. Of course there are still areas I need to get on top of and improve but it's just a process and we'll continue working hard for next week in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). It's been very close again with Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) all weekend and I think this will be the case for the entire season. Some weekends they will be faster and others we will be so we just have to make sure we keep our heads down and continue working hard."

Christian Horner, Team Principal: "Looking at today we can see that this championship is going to be a marathon and not a sprint. It's so tight and it's going to be all about marginal gains. Max drove the wheels off the car again today, snatching second from Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and it's super tight between him and Lewis. With Max, it was frustrating to lose the point for Fastest Lap at the end of the race due to track limits which I think we agree need to be consistent throughout the race weekend. Similarly with Sergio, he lost out to a case of track limits when he was overtaken by the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) but once he got back past, his race pace was good so he is definitely getting there and the races are coming together for him. In clean air his pace was matching that of the leaders so I'm pleased with the progress he is making. On the whole, second and fourth place means plenty of points and there's only eight separating Max and Lewis in the championship. Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) next week will be the benchmark and we'll get our heads down until then when hopefully we get a clearer picture of the strengths and weaknesses of all the cars."

Portugal GP: Race team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Very happy with today. It was a strong race by the whole team, and a well-executed strategy. I got past the people I needed to get ahead of in the early laps at the start, then the restart and the pit-stop. I'm really pleased for everyone in the team and with my performance. We scored some good points and P5 was the best we could achieve today, so I'm very happy. Big thanks to everyone here and back at the factory for their hard work."

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Today was certainly a better day. I was able to do what I set out to do and overtake some cars, have some battles and get rid of some anger from yesterday, so that was good. I think there were moments of the race that were really positive and having got another race distance under me, I feel like I've got quite a bit of feedback for the team. I definitely feel some things which are holding me back in terms of what I want to do with the car, and every time I try it, it doesn't quite hold on. So, I think there are some things we can immediately address with the set-up, and then with some updates to come. Overall, I'm pretty optimistic with how the race went, thanks again to the team at track and in Woking for their support and hard work this weekend. I'm already looking forward to Spain in a few days' time.


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Today we saw a great recovery drive. Well done to the entire team here at the track and back home, to both our drivers and to our colleagues from Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) HPP for striking back after a disappointing qualifying session yesterday. Lando completed another excellent weekend with a very strong drive to P5. Starting from P16, Daniel managed a very good first stint, making up a lot of positions at the start, delaying his pit-stop to gain further places, and then attacking at the end to finish P9, scoring another two important points for himself and for the team in the Constructors' Championship.


"This result strengthened our hold on third position in the Constructors' Championship, which is obviously very encouraging. It's important we keep developing the car and delivering strong performances over the next few races - starting at the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya in less than five days' time."

Portugal GP: Race team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "That was quite a busy and difficult race with a very long stint on the medium tyres. I do not think we could have done anything different with the strategy, but, overall, we did not have enough pace or consistency to hold onto the group fighting for points. On the positive side, I will have some new parts on my car next week, which we feel are a step in the right direction. But the real priority is to have a clean Saturday, which is the key to a better Sunday."

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was not our best day, but I think we were a bit stronger in race conditions than we were yesterday. Ultimately, a challenging Saturday meant that we were on the back foot today. The car felt better balanced in the race though, and we made up several places in the first half, but we just lacked that little bit more to make it into the points. If we had had a slightly better qualifying, points could have been possible. However, we will not dwell on today too much, but we will learn what we can and make improvements ahead of next weekend. We will arrive in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) in a stronger position."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Lance drove a good race from a less than optimal grid slot, never put a foot wrong, and ended up finishing 14th in a race that contained very little attrition. Towards the end, he was running just behind Sebastian, but on fresher tyres, so we asked Sebastian to let Lance past so that he could have a go at trying to catch and pass the cars ahead, to give us an outside chance of nicking a point. In the end, Lance was not able to do that so, very sportingly, he gave the place back to Sebastian on the final lap. Obviously, we are disappointed not to have been able to score any points today, but the good news is that the Spanish Grand Prix is next weekend, so we have a chance to correct that in just a few days' time."

Portugal GP: Race team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team scored 10 points in today's Heineken Portuguese Grand Prix with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) seventh and Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) eighth in an entertaining, overtaking-dominated race at the Algarve International Circuit.

Both drivers enjoyed a string of fine overtakes during the 66-lap race to ensure the team scored a strong haul of points and back-to-back, double top 10 finishes.


Starting from a season-best sixth on the grid, Esteban lost ground at the start after going wheel to wheel with McLarens
Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris). Fernando, meanwhile, starting from thirteenth, slipped back to fifteenth.


After an early Safety Car, both drivers settled into the race with Esteban managing his Softs until lap 22 when he pitted for Hards. After initially losing a place to Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly), Esteban started to make up ground with the first of two overtakes on the outside of Turn 1. His second daring effort saw him pass Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) at the same piece of tarmac for seventh place.


Fernando pitted on lap 40, trading his Mediums for Hards as he started to swoop on the top 10. First, the Spanish driver overtook Gasly at Turn 1, Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) two laps later and finally Sainz to close in behind Esteban inside the points.

Both cars eased across the line with Esteban seventh and Fernando eighth.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "I'm very happy with the race today, and I think we achieved our maximum. Having both cars in the points shows our progress and also how we've had a strong weekend overall. Everyone in the team has contributed to this progress and, fighting with the Ferraris and McLarens shows we've improved the car and the package. The overtakes today were very enjoyable! We want to keep the momentum going and score more points. We know next week will be different, but we aim to continue the progress, keep the level of speed and I'm looking forward to it."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a very good weekend in general. The car has performed well, and we've made a big step forwards, fighting with the likes of Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) and McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) in the race, which is different to where we were in Bahrain and Imola. It was the first race weekend where I felt comfortable and could push the car hard. Well done to everyone in the team, I think the progression we've made is very good. I think it could have been even better for us had we started higher on the grid. Performance on Saturday will be the key for the next two races in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and Monaco, so I need to focus on maximising my one lap speed starting next weekend."

Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "It was an entertaining race for us today, with lots of close battles and overtakes for both drivers, rewarded by good points at the finish line. We were fighting with Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) and McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) and this is where we want to be. Formula 1 is more fun when you're racing near the front! Today's race was well managed from start to finish. Our strategy was spot on, both drivers managed their first stint well then were able to push on the Hard tyres in the second, enjoying themselves and making up positions. We're on a good trajectory after this weekend thanks to the hard work by the team at the track, in Enstone and in Viry. There's still pace to be found, though, for the next few races and that all begins next week when we go racing again in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)."

Portugal GP: Race team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow's performance in the Portuguese Grand Prix did not live up to its expectations. After a good qualifying yesterday, only Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) got into the points, finishing sixth. The Monegasque delivered a solid performance, crossing the line two places higher than his grid position, posting lap times similar to those of his closest rivals for the entire race. Unfortunately, a top ten result slipped from Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz)'s grasp in the closing stages and he finished eleventh.

The second half of the race was particularly tough for the Spaniard. However, even before then, he had suffered a setback at the restart following the Safety Car brought out on the opening lap. Prior to that, the Spaniard had done a great job of passing Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) off the line, but he then dropped three places, ending up behind the Mexican, Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon). The second key moment came in the first few laps after fitting the Medium tyres on lap 21, in an attempt to undercut Norris who was very close. In this stage, it's likely Carlos pushed a bit too much and his tyre performance therefore dropped off in the closing stages, when he slipped down the order and out of the points.
The Portimao race data will now be analysed in Maranello to understand why the SF21 did not perform as expected, particularly on one of the Pirelli compounds at this race. The next chance to measure up against our rivals starts this coming week, when the World Championship moves on to the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya Circuit for the fourth round of the season, the Spanish Grand Prix.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): I can't be satisfied with P6, and overall, I haven't been performing at my best this weekend. That said, looking at my drive in the race, I am happy with the job I did. I had a good start to the first stint, but then Carlos and I both struggled a lot with graining on the medium tyre, which didn't seem to affect the others so much. As a team, we have to understand what happened there.


A fifth may have been possible today, but I don't think we could have done much more.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): We didn't have a good day. Even though I got a good start, the race was very tough after the pit stop. During the first stint I was feeling very good on the Soft tyre behind Lando, Then, we tried the undercut by changing quite early onto the Medium and it didn't work. From there on, it was a big struggle to make it to the end with that compound due to the graining.


I'm disappointed, as I feel we had a good opportunity to score good points today. We will analyse the race, learn from the strategy, from the tyres and from the car behaviour. On to Spain.


Mattia Binotto: Today's result was not what we were expecting. We were unable to capitalise on the potential seen in qualifying and that cost us a lot of points in the Constructors' classification. Charles drove a very solid race, making up some of the ground lost yesterday. Carlos had a difficult race, especially in the second stint.


In just a few days, we are back in action in Spain. On a very demanding track like the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya circuit, we will need to be prepared down to the smallest detail to make the most of our potential throughout the weekend.

Portugal GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauri

Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Honestly, today was really difficult - it wasn't the race we wanted but, to be honest, it was what we expected. We've really struggled here across the weekend, only just making it through to the top 10 in Qualifying, so I think to come away with a point is positive. I was happy at the start of the race as I was managing to follow Charles, but ultimately we lacked pace - due to having no grip in the low-speed corners - and in the end I think it was great to pass Carlos to get a point for the team. I think the circuit in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) will suit our car more, as it's a much faster track, so I'm hoping that we'll perform better there in a few days' time."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "It was really tough today, I had no grip at the beginning of the race and there was just no pace at all for me out there. I've struggled all weekend with the balance of the car, the conditions haven't helped, but everyone has been driving the same track so we just need to analyse the data, to see what didn't work for us here in Portugal, and learn from it ahead of next weekend in Spain."

Portugal GP: Race team notes - Alfa Romeo

Another race Sunday, another occasion in which the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN team has looked strong... but points have remained elusive. In Portugal, in a race that once again saw very little attrition, we raced strongly, showing pace and grit but coming home just outside of the top ten.Antonio and Kimi, starting in P12 and P15 respectively after a solid performance on Saturday, looked set to fight for the points all race: a good start placed the Finn in a good place, but contact with his team-mate brought the Iceman's race to a premature end. Antonio, in the remaining C41, did a very good job in his first stint to keep Alonso's Alpine at bay, before setting off in pursuit of Vettel after the pit-stop.

Antonio reeled in the four-time world champion before passing him with a decisive manoeuvre on the outside of turn one: he then controlled the two Aston Martins behind him, keeping them there until the chequered flag. With little action happening in front of the Italian, he crossed the line in P12.

No ultimate reward for the team, then, but the consciousness of being able to be there or thereabout when a race produces a few more surprises. It's not yet where we want to be, but it's a world away from where we were last year after three rounds. We keep working.

Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It was a mixed Sunday for us: on the one hand, we lost one car through contact between team-mates, which is one of the worst things that can happen, in a sporting sense, to a team; on the other hand, Antonio did a really good job in the remaining car, keeping behind most of our direct rivals and finishing just outside the points. We keep showing how competitive the car can be in the race, but we still miss something to be in the top ten in normal circumstances: our work doesn't stop and we will keep pushing to get there consistently."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "You never want to have contact with your team-mate, and this time unfortunately it was my mistake. I got caught out by the slipstream and ended up driving into Antonio. I couldn't do much after that, the front wing got stuck under the car and I couldn't steer: all I could do was go straight into the gravel. It's a disappointment as we looked like we had decent pace, I made a really good start and the race could have been positive. The only upside was that at least Antonio didn't get any damage and was able to continue."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I feel we got all we could from the race today: it wasn't possible to get any closer than this to the top ten. After the contact with Kimi, from which thankfully I didn't get damage, and the Safety Car, nothing really happened in the front which made it really difficult to break into the points: I started 12th and finished there. I still had a fun race, some battles with Alonso and Vettel which kept me busy: I was happy to be able to pass Seb and keep both Aston Martins behind until the race. We will continue working hard to get into the points soon."

Portugal GP: Race team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) classified 17th and 19th respectively at the Portuguese Grand Prix, Round 3 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, held at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve.
Schumacher fitted Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires for the opening stint of the race and stayed out of trouble before pitting mid-distance for White hard tires. Schumacher hunted down Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) rival Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) through the final stint and made a successful overtake through turn three. It gave Schumacher 17th place and his third successive finish in as many Formula 1 starts.


Mazepin also took medium tires for the opening lap and briefly ran ahead of his teammate before settling into a rhythm. Mazepin exchanged his mediums for hards on lap 32 and then came in for a second stop on lap 46, fitting the Red soft tires, in order to gather more experience in free air. Mazepin greeted the checkered flag in 19th position to accumulate more mileage behind the wheel of the VF-21.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I think the race was positive if you look at the lap times. Obviously, we realized we were not fighting for any top positions, we converted to our Plan C, which wasn't the optimum in terms of the overall finishing delta, but it was definitely the optimum for not receiving the blue flags. It allowed us to get those laps in and see how the car behaves and where we should be improving. The first few laps were good but after that I need to improve the way I was driving - that will come with experience. In terms of learning, it was a decent race. There are loads of things that I can improve on my side."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It was a challenging race and unfortunately overtaking is quite difficult around here. It was tough for us lap after lap having to follow close-by, especially in the midfield where we were quite strong. Being that close - you just burn up your tires and obviously then it gets difficult. Eventually we pushed the Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) into a mistake, then we kind of had a free run and were able to show our pace. If we had cleared Nicholas (Latifi) earlier, I think we could maybe even have had the pace to catch up to and fight with George (Russell). Overall, we wanted a clean race and to see the checkered flag. We managed that and everything went well."


Guenther Steiner: "It was a weekend with progress. I know I keep on using the word progress, but that is what we need to make, and we're doing it. The whole weekend was good in my opinion. When you sit there and you can't get by Latifi, frustration sets in - and that's a good thing as it means we could have more. In the end Mick passed him, and that was good, but maybe we missed out on George (Russell) being on the radar if we'd passed Latifi earlier - but we take it step by step. Nikita also made progress, as much as the result may not show it. We put him on a new set of tires just to give him more time to drive the car at the limit. With all the blue flags, there was a risk with his C1 tires that they'd cool down too much - then it would have been no fun to drive. He fell a bit back because of that but he completed the race once again. He's making progress, he's getting faster every weekend as well."

George started 11th and Nicholas 18th, both on the medium Pirelli tyre. Both drivers ran a one-stop strategy, with Nicholas pitting for the hard compound on lap 24 and George following suit on lap 28.

Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Today was very difficult and we simply didn't have the pace. We found it difficult in the conditions today and although we held our position at the start, it was much more difficult on the medium tyre following the early safety car. The car has shown some good traits this weekend, but we are still lacking the stability that we need to be able to race in the pack. With the tyres hard to keep in their working window, once you start losing places, it is very difficult to recover.


We now have a quick turnaround to get the team to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) ready for the next race. It will be interesting to see how the car behaves at a circuit that we know well.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69589/drivers/66/george-russell): After yesterday we were all hoping for more, but that was an incredibly challenging race. Our car does not suit these conditions, when the wind picks up it becomes a real struggle. It's a shame but the positives are that we know the strengths and the weaknesses of the car, and so we just have to hope that moving forward we get some slightly calmer conditions which allow us to demonstrate those strengths.

Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was difficult out there today. We always struggle with the opening laps and that was evident with George starting much higher up and then after the first few laps he was back where I was. It feels very on edge and we need to do some analysis to try and find a solution. There is definitely something we are missing at the moment, and we need to try and improve it ahead of Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona).

Portugal GP: Race team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) won the Portuguese Grand Prix by half a minute with a one-stop strategy from second on the grid, moving from the P Zero Yellow medium to the P Zero White hard tyre on lap 37.

Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas), who finished second and third respectively, intended to run the same strategy but then stopped right at the end to put on the P Zero Red soft tyre and fight for the extra championship point for fastest lap - with Bottas coming out on top after Verstappen's final lap was deleted for a track limits infringement.


Only one other competitor stopped twice: Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) driver Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin), who also used all three compounds.
Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez), who started and finished fourth, ran an unusual strategy by going from the medium to the P Zero Red soft with just 15 laps to go.


The highest-placed finisher to start on the soft tyre was McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris), who finished fifth with a soft-medium strategy after starting seventh on the grid.


Temperatures were warmer than they had been on previous days, peaking at 22 degrees ambient and 40 degrees of track temperature.


Mario Isola: "The warmer weather led to increased wear on the softer compounds compared to previous days, which meant that drivers had to manage their tyres more. This additionally shifted the emphasis towards the hard compound, also because of track evolution providing a bit more grip than before. All three tyres stood out for different reasons. The hard tyre was key here this afternoon in these conditions, which is why it was used by most drivers for the final stint, including Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton), who drove a perfect race. The soft, although used least in the race - and mainly for short opening stints as expected - was also run for nearly 40 laps by Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll), while Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) completed a mammoth stint on the mediums for the bulk of the race as part of an unusual yet effective strategy."

Checo se quejó de que Norris se salió en la T4 y que la ventaja que obtuvo al hacerlo le permitió adelantarle, perdiendo luego tras él un tiempo que dijo fue fundamental. En el siguiente enlace está el momento. Se ve claramente a Norris fuera de la pista pero también se ve a Checo dejandole demasiado espacio a Norris. Si no recuerdo mal, Checo comentó que pensaba que Norris iba a devolverle la posición por haber obtenido esa ventaja y que le sorprendió que no lo hiciera.

Algunas de las novedades técnicas captadas por N. Carpentiers :sherlock:

La technique à Portimao : Red Bull accélère son développement

En raison d’un bitume peu adhérent, Red Bull a souffert au Portugal et n’a sans doute pas pu tirer pleinement profit des nombreuses nouveautés qu’elle a introduites sur la RB16B ce week-end. Nous passons ces évolutions en revue, ainsi que les nouveautés apportées par Ferrari et Alpine, en terminant par une image exceptionnelle en fin de galerie.


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/05/f1-technique-portugal-red-bull-ecope-frein.jpg

DES ÉVOLUTIONS EN PAGAILLE… SUR UN TRACÉ ATYPIQUE

Alors que la RB16B paraissait être la monoplace la plus rapide du plateau, elle a dû s’incliner face à la Mercedes sur l’asphalte peu adhérente – et dès lors un brin atypique – de Portimao. Elle était pourtant dotée d’un impressionnant ensemble de nouveautés, touchant autant l’avant que l’arrière. De l’aveu même des ingénieurs de Milton Keynes, l’ampleur des gains que ces évolutions devraient apporter sera plus précisément connue dans une semaine, sur le tracé plus conventionnel de Barcelone.


À l’avant, les écopes de frein, dont le rôle ne se limite pas à refroidir les disques et les étriers (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-a-quoi-servent-ecope-frein-avant/), ont été légèrement remodelées. Une séparation supplémentaire a été ajoutée dans la partie supérieure afin de canaliser plus précisément l’écoulement du flux d’air à l’intérieur. C’est à travers un réseau de conduits extrêmement dense que l’air frais est guidé vers les pièces à refroidir : le disque et les plaquettes en carbone, l’étrier en aluminium, et même quelques capteurs électroniques.

Les pièces sur lesquelles l’air est soufflé sont nombreuses et minutieusement choisies, ce qui explique le grand nombre de conduits internes, accru sur cette version. Le dessin de cet enchevêtrement de canalisations s’appuie sur les résultats de la CFD (la mécanique des fluides numérique (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/pourquoi-la-cfd-est-elle-indispensable-en-f1/)) et sur des tests au banc d’essai simulant les contraintes subies lors d’un Grand Prix.

On notera que l’analyse des flux dans des circuits fermés (comme le sont les écopes) constitue historiquement le premier champ d’application des logiciels de CFD, qui ont ensuite été perfectionnés pour être utilisés sur des surfaces ouvertes comme la carrosserie.


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/05/f1-technique-portugal-red-bull-panneau-lateral.jpg

LE TAUREAU ALLONGE SES CORNES

Positionnés dans le sillage des écopes de freins, les panneaux latéraux ont aussi été remaniés. Cette pièce installée dans le prolongement du “bargeboard” (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-deflecteurs-lateraux-importants/5/) oriente le flux d’air vers l’extérieur (ce qu’on appelle un mouvement d’outwash), en vue d’écarter le sillage turbulent que produit la rotation des roues avant. Sur l’image ci-dessus, cela signifie que les déflecteurs situés dans la zone marquée par les flèches jaunes et les déflecteurs horizontaux formant une sorte de store vénitien dirigent le flux d’air vers l’extérieur et vers le haut.


Sur la nouvelle version, l’élément antérieur est entaillé et descend désormais jusqu’au fond plat (comparez les flèches blanches). Cette nouvelle forme oriente le flux d’air vers l’extérieur plus tôt que sur le modèle précédent, alors que le nombre d’élément horizontaux a été augmenté dans le même but (flèches bleues). On le voit, comme les ingénieurs ne peuvent plus modifier la zone arrière du fond plat autant qu’avant (plus d’entailles, etc.) (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/4/), ils se concentrent sur les aires encore libres.


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/05/f1-technique-portugal-red-bull-floor.jpg

UNE ZONE TOUJOURS CRITIQUE

Localisées dans le sillage du panneau latéral retouché, les languettes longitudinales ont été allongées et s’attachent dorénavant au gros déflecteur installé en position oblique juste avant la découpe en “Z” du fond plat (flèches jaunes).


Le rôle de ces languettes est également d’orienter le flux d’air vers le haut et vers l’extérieur, afin de générer un flux assez puissant, capable de détourner le flux turbulent que produit la rotation des roues avant. En schématisant à l’extrême, la moitié antérieure d’une F1 est une machine à souffler sur les côtés (c’est en effet l’un des rôles de l’aileron avant (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-aileron-avant/), de la cape (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/cape-sest-imposee-f1/2/) et des turning vanes (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-turning-vanes-a-quoi-ca-sert/), des bargeboards (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-deflecteurs-lateraux-importants/3/)).


La seconde moitié du fond plat, postérieure, joue un rôle différent. Il s’agit toujours de contrecarrer les turbulences générées par la rotation des roues – mais cette fois des roues arrière. En simplifiant (vous trouverez l’explication détaillée ici (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/4/)), les aérodynamiciens cherchent à protéger les côtés du diffuseur en empêchant que les turbulences créées par la rotation des roues (le “tyre squirt”) viennent s’immiscer à l’intérieur du diffuseur. Avant 2021, ils pratiquaient à cet effet des découpes dans le fond plat, qui généraient des vortex agissant comme une sorte de paroi de vent. Depuis cette saison et l’interdiction de ce genre de découpes, ils cherchent à générer de tels vortex autrement, entre autres par les déflecteurs recourbés placés juste avant la fameuse découpe en “Z” du fond plat (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-a-imola-club-z-sagrandit/).


De ce point de vue, la nouvelle version de cette zone sur la Red Bull est assez originale. Comme on le voit en comparant les flèches bleues, l’espèce de rampe qui dirigeait le flux d’air vers le bas a en effet disparu au profit d’un volet rectiligne. Face à un règlement relativement neuf, les aérodynamiciens continuent d’explorer différentes voies.



https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/05/f1-technique-portugal-red-bull-diffuseur.jpg

CURE D’AMAIGRISSEMENT

À l’arrière, enfin, la section centrale du diffuseur de la Red Bull a été sensiblement amincie (comparez les flèches jaunes). La nouvelle version offre une courbure plus prononcée, ce qui peut contribuer à limiter les risques de séparation du flux d’air.


Cette séparation se produit lorsque le flux se détache, se “sépare”, de la surface sur laquelle il s’écoule – souvent parce que ladite surface est relativement longue et plate. Pour éviter ce phénomène, les aérodynamiciens subdivisent les surfaces en plus petits éléments (c’est pour cela que l’aileron avant comporte plusieurs volets (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-aileron-avant/)), placent des déflecteurs (comme à l’intérieur du diffuseur (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/secrets-diffuseur-formule-1/4/)) ou amplifient la courbure, comme c’est le cas ici. L’objectif est de limiter les risques de séparation dans le diffuseur et, ce faisant, d’optimiser le fonctionnement de celui-ci.



https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/05/f1-technique-portugal-ferrari-floor.jpg

FERRARI FRACTIONNE…

Sur la monoplace de Charles Leclerc et Carlos Sainz, la rangée de petits déflecteurs située devant la roue arrière a été retouchée. Le nombre d’éléments est passé de quatre à sept.


Cette pièce sert à dévier le flux d’air et à produire de petits tourbillons en vue de contrecarrer les turbulences provoquées par la rotation des roues arrière (le fameux “tyre squirt” (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/4/)).


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/05/f1-technique-portugal-alpine.jpg

… ET ALPINE DÉCOUPE

Après avoir introduit un important ensemble de nouveautés à Imola (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-a-imola-club-z-sagrandit/3/), Alpine continue de rattraper le temps perdu cet hiver (retard dû à des problèmes dans la soufflerie d’Enstone (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-features/enquete-magazine-features/usine-f1-visite-chez-renault-a-enstone-soufflerie/)). L’écurie française a raboté l’un des déflecteurs installés dans le diffuseur (comparez les traits jaune et blanc).


Favoriser l’expansion latérale du flux d’air est l’un des rôles que jouent les déflecteurs verticaux (ou “strakes”) placés à l’intérieur du diffuseur d’une Formule 1, dont les secrets sont dévoilés ici (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/secrets-diffuseur-formule-1/). Leur rôle ? Produire une série de vortex pour maintenir le flux d’air attaché.


Par sa forme, un diffuseur produit deux gros vortex sur ses côtés. En ajoutant des déflecteurs à l’intérieur, les aérodynamiciens ont remarqué que ces panneaux verticaux, souvent courbés, généraient d’autres vortex, plus petits mais qui amélioraient tout de même le fonctionnement du diffuseur en énergisant le flux d’air qui, de ce fait, avait moins tendance à se détacher.


C’est ce qui explique la multiplication des déflecteurs verticaux (ou “strakes”) à l’intérieur des diffuseurs ces dernières années. Jusqu’à 2020, ils pouvaient descendre jusqu’au niveau du fond plat. Cette saison, par contre, ils ne peuvent pas faire plus de 5 cm de hauteur (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/reglement-technique-f1-2021-explique/3/). Curieusement, Alpine a raboté l’un des déflecteurs davantage que ce qu’impose le règlement. Comme pour le fond plat découpé en “Z” (qui privilégient la forme à la surface), les aérodynamiciens semblent donc trouver des gains autrement qu’en étendant les surfaces jusqu’au maximum autorisé.

ALPHATAURI RETOUCHE SON DIFFUSEUR

Dixième dimanche au Portugal, Pierre Gasly a piloté une AlphaTauri transformée au niveau du diffuseur (après le fond plat revu à Imola et avant d’autres changements prévus pour le Grand Prix d’Espagne).


Le changement le plus visible concerne la pièce reliant le volet extérieur au volet intermédiaire (comparez les flèches jaunes). D’autres changements touchent peut-être la forme du diffuseur proprement dit, mais il faudrait d’autres images pour en avoir le cœur net.


https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/05/f1-technique-portugal-alphatauri.jpg

UNE IMAGE RARE POUR FINIR


On se rappelle qu’une nouvelle transmission avait été installée sur la voiture de Yuki Tsunoda pour la course à Imola, après la violent sortie de piste du Japonais qui avait détruit le train arrière de l’AlphaTauri lors de la séance qualificative.


De nouvelles images, inédites, permettent de mesurer la violence du choc et de voir les engrenages présents à l’intérieur d’une boîte de vitesses de Formule 1 (dont les secrets sont dévoilés ici) (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-boite-de-vitesses-bien-plus-quune-transmission/).


La transmission d’une F1 n’est pas qu’un organe mécanique permettant d’établir une liaison entre la vitesse de rotation de l’arbre du moteur thermique (élevée) et celle des roues (plus lente et variable).

Non contente d’adapter le couple, elle est un élément structurel essentiel d’une F1.


“Du point de vue structurel, une Formule 1 se compose du châssis, du moteur et de la boîte de vitesses – sur laquelle sont fixées la suspension arrière et la structure déformable chargée d’absorber les impacts”, nous explique Joddy Egginton, directeur technique d’AlphaTauri.


“Une boîte de vitesses comporte donc un aspect mécanique, avec une multitude d’engrenages et de pignons, mais aussi un aspect structurel, car elle contribue à la rigidité de la voiture. Elle a même une dimension aérodynamique, puisqu’on essaie toujours de réduire son encombrement au maximum. Plus elle est compacte, plus les aérodynamiciens sont libres.”



Formant l’ossature arrière du châssis, la boîte de vitesses sert de point d’attache au moteur, aux triangles et montants de la suspension, au mécanisme du DRS, au pilier de l’aileron arrière, à la structure déformable en cas d’impact. Elle est à la fois un organe de transmission et un élément structurel au dessin sophistiqué.


L’image rare, que nous vous dévoilons en exclusivité, permet de constater que les engrenages de cette transmission (un modèle Red Bull de 2019) (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/formule-1-2021-alphatauri-at02-a-loupe/2/) présentent une denture droite et non hélicoïdale.
