Guess the Pole 2017: Round 3 BAHRAIN

Post by XcraigX » 6 months ago

Bahrain is back to 3rd on the calendar. Plus it lands in a slot with no rest week in between. Will that have put the teams and machinery into overstress mode when subject to the desert heat? Will the high temps play into Ferrari's hands for Engine or tire wear advantages? They are all factors that may affect who is on pole and how fast they go!

We're using 2016 spec cars for Fp1 and FP2 now?

It seems so. I really hope they're sandbagging massively. I originally wrote a 1:28.5 as my time and changed it 15 minutes before the deadline.

No-one has been doing low fuel quali spec runs during FP1 and FP2. More time will be found between FP3 and quali. Although I'm surprised you lowered your guess Paul.
