So what's the deal with Prema then? Just clever engineering or something more?

During the practice session it was mentioned by the commentator that the other F2 teams are unable to understand how Prema can have such a strong one lap pace.

No different to last year really, only this year they have arguably got the best driver in the best car.

Leclerc 3 tenths up in 1st practice yesterday!

Rowland strong as expected. He needs a win and at least another troublesome race for Charles to get back in the hunt.

How about Leclerc 0.458 seconds up in Quali. No one can touch him for his 6th consecutive pole (equal with Vandoorne)

The Prema is undoubtedly the best car but Leclerc is the only one making it work, as i have said before, i don't rate Fuoco in the slightest though. Rowlands problem other than Leclerc is that i am beginning to wonder how good the DAMS is, as in he isn't annihilating Latifi and Latifi is up the sharp end more often than not which is pretty unexpected in my opinion.

really? you don't rate fuoco? you've never mentioned it before

i asked in the other thread if prema still have the art engineer/s? that has been suggested as part of the reason why prema's cars are as fast as the art ones used to be.

Leclerc a second a lap faster than anyone else.

Now he has a problem, smoke/steam out of the engine cover!

No idea what the problem is, 5 laps later the car is still running, no more smoke/steam.

Now Leclerc loses a mirror, guys still setting fastest laps and going to win by miles, unless the smoke was from a fire extinguisher...?

Nitrous! The secret is out!.

I'm sorry but there is no way that car/driver combo is that much beter than the field. No way. Prema are onto.something that the others do not have. Or have not found yet.
