What a crap year, nothing seems to work for us and our experiments for the last two races have actually made us slower and back in contention for the 3rd best car.
We need to take a big leap forward (and in many areas) over the winter, if we are to have a chance to fight for the titles next year.
We need to improve by a lot and on so many aspects.
We'll see how it goes.
I'm not agree at all. The turn around was fantastic, before the Singapore upgrade we were closer to the midfield in these kind of track. Since, 6 poles, (almost all the pole) race wins.
Now, the pace is good, the problem is the tyres management, you have to remember that the car have a fundamental problem, not enough DF, all the team is doing is damage limitation since Singapore and it's a great one, like in 2012.
Despite being handicapped with downforce problem and tyres management, in term of pace that car is a threat at every kind of track, even with less DF than Red Bull and Mercedes.
I'm proud of what the team did this year, such a turnaround despite being in damage limitation mode is wonderful.
Sometimes it's great to remember what we were watching this summer, 1 seconds per lap slower in race pace.
Today, Leclerc with the medium was matching the pace of the leaders.
