8 minutes left - Last year it was a tradition at Ferrari to quietly build up the Grand Prix weekend. Also today the team from Maranello with Vettel on P5 and Leclerc on P9 does not seem to show the back of the tongue.

Because the race is busy at this time on Sunday, the teams now mainly want to ride longer 'stints' on the tires. For the time being, not everyone's lightning fast times. # F1

    It takes some getting used to, but this is really Kimi R盲ikk枚nen. The Alfa Romeo driver, the former Sauber, ends up next to the asphalt, but can continue his way.
