So... new day, new "dumb" question...

Are teams who run more laps concentrating on reliability?

Looks like Honda engines have run more laps than Mercedes so far. Who would have predicted that?

Ferrari fastest? Or is Bottas just slow?

Or Bottas could be feeling a bit kicked in the butt after last years"team" effort support. He did say something to the effect, "I haven't done anything in F1" during an interview at B-C during last week testing. Hard to say. Early in the year with the season yet to begin. May all be a mind game.
