I won’t post them individually, but here as a general view which I would say applied to most tracks:
– Mercedes have the faster car, being able to seemingly “turn up the motor” in qualifying.
– Mercedes have more problems (a smaller window) finding the sweet spot with the tires.
– Ferrari and Mercedes have been very similar on race pace, in general.
– Pole position has often been converted into wins, so the quali advantage is crucial.
– In most races, it is difficult to overtake, even more so if cars have similar pace.
Therefore, I would suggest that Mercedes has had the advantage this year and overall the faster car.
But it is slight enough to make a championship out of it.
I would compare it, in terms of difference if nothing else, to the 2012 McLaren and Red Bull battle, which was a very close one, too.13th August 2017, 8:12 at 8:12 am #347793

Can’t understand how HUL is that far behind PER – gotta take into account the whole season!29th July 2015, 10:24 at 10:24 am #302686
I think I disagree with that last one…
I love having all the information, the options are still so variable. Love the F1App during the race, much better than 10 years ago depending on who is reporting the race.16th August 2014, 8:17 at 8:17 am #270531
What are the best spots at the Kimmel straight (besides the very end) and what time should I be there to find a good spot, on racing day?7th May 2014, 11:28 at 11:28 am #259064
Sky Deutschland Sports costs 24,90 a month, with an extra 10 for hd. so that is less than 300 euros a year, which includes a ton of other things (for example hbo), and 420 euros with hd.25th March 2014, 22:03 at 10:03 pm #253876
This driver used to be my student (I’m a high school teacher):

Will there be a Mini-League from F1F at Hilton HHonors Fantasy Racing again?22nd January 2014, 15:16 at 3:16 pm #244129
I know and you are right. But I still believe as a good Brazilian he should be okay in mixed courses.21st January 2014, 20:51 at 8:51 pm #244127
He was a fantastic kart driver so I don’t see why he should do worse in road courses. Let’s see.21st January 2014, 7:24 at 7:24 am #244123
@wsrgo he used to be my student (I’m a high school teacher) and I’m really looking forward to seeing him at Spa this year. He has had some success in junior series in the US, but not enough to show for in Indy Lights to get into the CART series. Good thing, since I hope he makes it in Europe, where he really wanted to compete. With a team like Trident, any success will really stand out.
Hoping he has a great season!12th December 2013, 20:54 at 8:54 pm #246949
I guess that was the look she was going for.
She is a year younger AND their baby is due this year.12th December 2013, 14:43 at 2:43 pm #247116
I don’t think Felipe Massa deserves to still be mentioned as a Top 10 driver in F1 right now. Mark Webber did enough to deserve it, IMO.12th December 2013, 14:17 at 2:17 pm #247114
Surprised by how low Hülkenberg was viewed, and how high Webber was seen, which really makes Vettel even better.
No rookies in the Top 10, and also no Dan Ricciardo.10th December 2013, 20:33 at 8:33 pm #247021
Just one thing. The 2012 championship had its problems with rules, but it was a great championship nonetheless, with the different winners and different teams winning.
And maybe another. F1 has never really been about flat out racing from start to finish, it has always been about strategy, too. If it were driving out flat each lap of the race, something would be missing.
But on the rest, I’m in.
