Saturday at the GP China F1 2018, starts with a stumbling block and a huge Mercedes that seems to have not found the expected performance here, and Ferrari escapes them in the world. Sebastian Vettel has secured the pole position, with Kimi Räikkönen coming out from the second position. An unusual doublet of Ferrari in the first line, leaving the Mercedes to start from the second, with a Hamilton that has had to be content with being 4th while his teammate Valtteri Bottas has earned in the standings and will go out 3rd. We’ll see what happens tomorrow, since the points are given on Sunday, but the world escapes them to Mercedes due to problems with the strategies, software errors, and performances like this…
anger of Hamilton it was quite evident after qualifying and said that I had to go talk with the guys from your team to see what had happened. It may be that the characteristics of this circuit or the tires are to blame, or simply that Ferrari has done a better job and are really in front. But, I insist, by estupidces as this is beyond the world and at the end of the season, when the chances of scoring go down remembers one of these moments where it’s not optimized everything. Morning that anger of Hamilton be an interesting race, and we’ll see if Valtteri Bottas can also do something interesting, and wait to see what they do but also the guys in Maranello.
free 3 have happened without too many incidents, the most notable has been the problem of Daniel Ricciardo, who once again is the protagonist due to mechanical problems and that is not good for all powered by Renault. The computer gaul had left more margin to squeeze out the engine more from China, with maps of the engine more aggressive used during more time, after confirming at the start of the season the good reliability of the engine of a rhombus, but these things could make Renault arrempentirse. I hope not and that they will continue winning performance, and that it is not contagious to the rest. The truth is that seeing the Red Bull of Ricciardo with fire by a problem in the turbo is not a positive thing. The good thing is that the mechanics have done a quick job and have managed to change the engine for qualifying, and saving the panorama.
By the way, the long runs of Red Bull seem particularly good here, and might tomorrow give you a little surprise. The times made by the pilots of the team energy drinks were at the height of Ferrari and Mercedes, and they might even be a little better. A pity that the Saturday of a return does not have that map special motor that makes them stay a little more up, because really the car is very good and could give war and spectacle. In terms of the Spanish, Carlos Sainz has now been moved to Q3, Alonso has been 13th in the Q2 playing the rebufos with Stoffel Vandoorne. They wanted to reach the 11th square that was the goal to get out tomorrow with the other tires and get a good position, but have not been able to or with slipstream because of its slow speed on the straights.

And if you want more incentives for the race, fijáos where is Hamilton and who is after him, and sumalo to the comments of the previous GP between both morning could jump sparks and pieces of carbon. Tomorrow we expect a interesting career that I hope not to lose it. Until then we will be attentive from AM to collect the latest news relevant if there are any. Rememberd that there are a variety of possible strategies for the compounds Pirelli brought here, the degradation is very high and the chance of rain seems to lessen, for tomorrow, but we’ll see if they change or we see a few drops morning or a race totally dry. What strikes strongly is the cold…
