Ferrari will have to improve their pace yesterday, where in the afternoon they seemed clearly behind McLaren. It doesn’t seem like one of the best tracks for SF21, although it remains to be seen if they were trying something different in FP2 and for that reason they dropped in their morning performance, where they were fourth and fifth. The fight between Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc, separated by half a point in the World Cup, will live another interesting chapter.
Alpine looks like it is going to suffer this weekend, although Fernando Alonso has found a good one-lap performance in the last few rounds, which could allow him to enter Q3 in qualifying tonight (23.00), if has a perfect day with the softs. In any case, going out with the media from 11th onwards could be better to be in the points in Sunday’s race.
