Ferrari has decided not to use its new floor on the remainder of the weekend after testing it in Mexico on Friday. Ferrari had the new base on the track for the latest American GP training, but had not used it in the race. Sebastian Vettel said his performance in the US was due to the fact that they did not use some of the recent updates.
In Mexico, Ferrari tested the new floor again in practice and compared it to the old floor, but finally decided not to use it.
"It was an interesting morning. We learned a lot and continue with the old package," Vettel said. said. Ferrari and Mercedes in the championship were left behind on the day Red Bull dominated. Oddly, it came from the best second-degree Renault team.
Most drivers today are not satisfied with the lack of handling and the durability of hyper-soft tires. Red Bull was 1 and 2 in both sessions, while Vettel was 7th in the morning session and 4th in the afternoon.
"I don't think we're taking a clean lap. We should have been in front of the Renault." "Everyone is on the edge of tires and is trying to run them slower. Red Bull has had less trouble."
"There is no grip on the road. "The problem is that if you don't have road holding and grounding power, because the weather is too thin, we can't run the tires. Then everything gets harder."
"That's why you can see a serious leap in lap times." "If you can't run the tires, then you're far behind in performance. I think everyone will have more."
"Tires will be critical. If we get 1, 2, 3 or 4 km / h faster on the straight line, it won't be damaging."
"But it's much more important to bring the tires to the right range because here you can easily earn 0.2, 0.3 or 0.5 s. This is a big difference." said.
