RBR seems to have the advantage, in the hands of Max at least, when you compare the tyres that were on the cars when the best laps were set on Day 3.

Ferrari's hero time came on the softest compound C5 and the other ahead of Max on the timing board, see below, were on C4s a step softer than the C3s Max was on. Ironically neither C4 or C5 will be available for the Bahrain race itself, so one can only surmise they were used for publicity, or perhaps confirmation of car behaviour if & when they can be used in a race.

Can we trust these times to give the whole picture of pecking order though? Many a slip between Testing & real race conditions.

Bahrain F1 Testing Day Three - final timesheet(all times unofficial)

1. Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) - 1:30.322, 74 laps  C5

9. Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) - +0.925, 71 laps  C3
10. Sergio Perez (Red Bull) - +1.161, 53 laps  C3

A county commissioner in Las Vegas claims that Clark County (where Vegas is) never signed off on the contract for the F1 weekend there. He says only the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority signed it.

"A lot of stuff happened, and I havenít met anybody that likes Formula 1. So itís time to kind of find out,Ē says Clark County (Nev.) Commissioner Tick Segerblom. It will be brought up at the next meeting of the Commissioners.

High-tech development is not just confined to F1 cars it seems, it's crossed over onto morning railway commutes.

Now McLaren are trialling enhanced, and interference free, 5G transmissions for rail passengers which in time should massively ramp up TV feeds from F1 race cars, and in other venues, in coming years.

PLEASE NOTE! article linked below is a long read.

Well F1 crazy season started early this year with Lewis' switch to Ferrari. And now Horner's position at Red Bull apparently being at real risk. We'll have to wait and see what the outcome of that investigation is, but this article raises some interesting points:

https://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/68244253

Maybe Newey could be tempted by Ferrari to join Lewis in 2025, especially should Horner be on his way out and replaced by some corporate guy?

Maybe Lewis actually knew something the rest didn't?
