Are Ferrari planning a two-stop attack on Mercedes? | 2019 Spanish Grand Prix pre-race analysis

Ferrari didn’t have the pace to challenge Mercedes in qualifying.
Ferrari, having clearly realised they weren’t going to be able to out-qualify Mercedes, took fewer sets of softs into qualifying in order to have more strategic options in the race.
Compared to Mercedes they have an extra set of fresh medium tyres, suggesting they’re prepared for a two-stop soft-medium-medium strategy.
Pirelli’s motorsport director Mario Isola said a soft-medium one-stop may be possible it is “really, really marginal”.
Is there a realistic chance Mercedes will fail to score a fifth one-two in today’s race?
