Spanish Grand Prix 2018

May JohnsonMay 14, 2018

On Friday, Red Bull's Christian Horner qualified the aero tweaks to the regs, which include a wider simpler front wing, as "rushed and immature", while the changes will also slow the cars by as much as 1.5 seconds according to Nikolas Tombazis, the FIA's head of technical matters. It will be a long race and the tyres will be challenging, too.

Sebastian Vettel, who trails Hamilton by four points in the drivers' standings, kept Ferrari close in the morning session, but Red Bull was the main challenger to Mercedes in the afternoon.

Despite the fact that it is the driver whose life is on the line, who in most cases is the star attraction, they get little or no say in the sport. "We though the Super Soft was the better tyre for us and it worked, bit it was still marginal the gains we made".

"I'm a bit disappointed but it could have been worse".

"I think overall the tyres this weekend are different". The German feels positive that Ferrari can take the fight to their rivals on Sunday, although he knows they will need to manage the tyres carefully to do so. "I didn't get a great feeling on that tyre so I chose to ask to go back and I think it was the right call". We are not engineers but in the end of the day we are the ones that know what's going on in a racing situation, so fore sure, we should be, I guess, consulted about it.

"Ferrari was probably sandbagging just because they could, they've always had a very quick auto. I'm looking forward to the Spanish Grand Prix and hope the people will enjoy it". "I didn't have much to lose so I thought I'd try". The teams spend a lot of time testing here in pre-season, so they know it better than the backs of their hands.

Lewis Hamilton responded by saying that he doubted the changes will make the racing experience any good, that too at the cost of slower cars. "We should be at least as fast as we are this year but just making racing better. But we're not really asked". At the start of Q3 I did a pretty good time on the supersoft, but for me I didn't think we could go quicker on that tyre, so I wanted to try the soft again. "These conditions make it very hard to define where the setup needs to go". Obviously we had the change for everyone but I think they are a bit harder, so for me it was pretty straightforward as I said because I was happier with the vehicle with that tyre. With the laps we put in I thought we would be more like a couple of tenths from pole, not six or seven, as our vehicle didn't feel too bad which is a little frustrating.

"I mean we are drivers", said Vettel, "that's not to say that we know everything, we don't anything about engineering the auto but we know how the cars feel, how to drive the cars".
