    Suits the car...Spa is a low downforce track and power is needed...Ferrari doesn't have a lot of downforce and plenty of power. Still on the old engine, new engines in the customer teams (except Kimi I believe?).

    So, you admit that Ferrari has a Superior car.

    OT: just passed 2000 posts and still in F3. When do I get to F2?

    To be more realistic, FChat should allow you to buy your way to higher levels, ha-ha. Seems that's how us Canadians operate ;-)

    What? clearly not. Good engine but not enough downforce. Only works on lower downforce tracks.

    You're kidding right? (yes, I know you weren't addressing me). Are you trolling for a "SF90H is the superior car, but LH is the points Leader, ergo LH is the GOAT" ??

    Regardless, with a better run team the pieces may have been there for better overall performance this season. Maybe. Sure, we were the kings of Testing and often of Practice, but the Merc car is the superior and more consistent ride this season.

    I've previously stated last year the SF72H was good enough to deliver a championship to Seb, but team (strategy) and driving errors prevented that.

    Race cancelled

    Correa and Hubert involved. Hubert's car was in two pieces.

    Yes. Monza may suit the car well also.

    Hubert was the upside down car and he was moving. Have to be concerned for Correa though. That looked awful.

    I don't care about GOAT. That's playground talks.

    It has been proven that often Ferrari has the best car, but fails to capitalise on that through poor strategy or driver's error.
    I am glad that we agree on that bit !

    Vettel has lost not one but two championships, and the Scuderia has messed up at almost every opportunity this year.
    Mercedes is simply a Superior organisation than Ferrari.

    Now let's see if tomorrow Ferrari will translate its front row start into a 1-2 finish.
    Frankly, I won't hold my breath on that !!!

    Watched the replay and it looked like cockpit and halo of Hubert's car was intact, but the rear and sidepods separated. But then noticed the nose also separated.

    Roll structure of upside down car looked like it survived but was the driver's head sufficiently protected?

    Hope it turns out well for all.
