Russell seems to be able to handle the car a little better. Lewis doesn't look as comfortable fighting the car.
Yeah not too bad in terms of raw pace seeing everyone moved ahead with alot of upgrades and weight loss. I think that they will continue to develop their car so they learn more for next year, but at this point I think even if they catch up later on and win races it'll be too late for their title hopes.

But Horner Isn't agreed with the FIA and Horner said : 'Espionage is going on !
Strange that Fia just agreed without asking AM as to why the specific design is very similar to that of the RB.

Chas is asking questions whether he has the 'race pace' to keep ahead of Max and worries are creeping in about how his 16 car will handle the SF tire strat.
The answer is in the Lion's mouth Chas

Let's see how the Red Bull engines of VER, PER, GAS and TSU cope with the Spanish heat (close to 50C track temp).

It cost Red Bull and Alpha Tauri already a couple of DNFs. And most recently: PER had a power loss during the Miami race and yesterday during qualies smoke billowed out of the engine of GAS + during the final lap VER encountered a power loss.

OK, Red Bull always comes up with an explanation for the engine reliability gremlins, but yet another DNF may cost them lots of points.

MAX's power loss was caused by DRS failures .

Listen how PER got increasingly frustrated during the Miami race. He pointed out power loss to his team. First, Red Bull thought that it was because he lost the tow to Sainz. But Perez - righteously - insisted that it was engine-related. It was a faulty engine sensor.
