Replying to @F1 @NMazepin @MercedesAMGF1

Goes to show how kind that Mercedes car is to its driver, i'm not saying Mazepin is a slow guy, he isn't, but in terms of laptimes, 1.15's, it's hotlap territory and faster than Bottas. I always was sceptical when others told me that Mercedes car is carrying the team, but... wow.

    The time was made on the C5 tyre, the softest tyre used in qualifying was the C3 and Bottas' time was only .5 seconds slower than Mazepins time which was set on a much faster tyre

    Bottas was running on the same day, Mazepin was faster than Bottas on C5 compound. Even if there is a theoretical 0.8-1.0s between them, Bottas is so used to that car by now and Mazepin just had his 1st run in it and he is already on pace. That car is ridiculously easy to drive.

    Sorry, Bottas was running yesterday, but nevertheless he was running on C5's.

    They probably were running different programs, Mazepin was probably doing a race sim and Bottas a practise program for info

    Didn't Mazepin's father pay Mercedes to test their 2017 F1 car? What makes you think he doesn't know the car inside out?

    Well, it's obvious, a couple of days of testing against years of experience, Bottas helped develop 2019 car, raced it, qualified in it, I'm pretty sure he is much more used to it than a rookie. I reiterate, even if Mazepin 0.5-0.7s slower on average it's still very impressive.
