  1. Kimi so much slower than Seb, again. He’s over the hill and far away.

  2. OMG Max Verstappen, OMG Max Verstappen, OMG Max Verstappen…

    Shut up! It’s just a free practice. You can calm down now, he’s 10th.

    1. And behind Sainz. Again.

    2. I like that Sainz is the press underdog and every time it counts, he comes up on top… Great job Carlos

      1. @nuvolari71 yeah, people say how Max is impressive but always, Sainz is as much as impressive as him.

      2. For me is the surprise of this season by far. Carlos will do great things soon.

  3. Kimi once again showing that he’s rubbish at Monaco, and has passed it.

  4. Rosberg bottled it. Disappointing climax to quali.

  5. Hamilton got it back after a disastrous P3. Rosberg failing to deliver when it matters with a bad lockup. Will be interesting if Vettel manages to take P2 from him at the start. Bad from Kimi. Hope he can get a good race tomorrow sans any incidents.

    Hoping for an interesting race.

    1. Rosberg could very well steal 1st in that sense. I wouldn’t count any of those three out at that start.

    2. Start is pretty much software doing its job. Mercedes is much faster at it than Ferrari. Better hope Ric doesn’t spoil the fun at start. Though he did have a particularly bad start before, I haven’t examined how RBR behaves compared to Ferrari at the starts. I think after the start and the tyres warmed up, with a bit of a sun, Ferrari could be faster than Mercedes on supersofts, unless they got stuck behind someone slower like RBR-STR. But it is such a short run to the corner anyway. I wouldn’t hope for much action for the guys ahead. It could be drastically different with rain though.
      Moreover, after last 2 races where Ferrari couldn’t have gotten near enough Williams to put an overtaking move, and in Monaco, I am not sure if Ferrari can do anything against RBR. This year Ferrari are yet to overtake a RBR on track.

      1. Unless they try what Vettel did on 2011, a giant stint of 60 laps on the same tyre, it doesn’t matter how faster Ferrari will be. Remember 2013 when Rosberg won the race laping 2 secs off the pace for the majority of the race.

        1. Vettel had some very interesting races here, none of them usual Monaco stuff…

  6. Once again Rosberg fails to show he has what it takes to put it together consistently. Kimi, less said the better….. Great results for Sergio, Pastor and Sainz

  7. I find it so unique to Kimi’s stats is that his fastest lap count is among the highest, tied second with Prost. Now I would typically say (and a brief look at most of the greats’ stats seems to corroborate this) that a driver’s amount of wins, poles and fastest laps are of the similar amount to each other.

    For Kimi, he had more fastest laps than wins and poles combined. What’s up with that?

    1. Well.. Fast lap is dependent on the csr and the circumstances these days. Going alternate strategy and slapping on fresh options in the last stint usually gives you fastest laps.

      1. That’s not the reason he has that many fastest laps though.

  8. Kimi is over the hill. He will soon be 37. Ripe old age for retirement.

  9. Looking forward for a battle between Riccardo n Vettel… hope it comes out interesting

  10. Guess no one is talking about how Kimi is unlucky anymore.
    The guy simply is not able to put a single lap together anymore. In fact he’s been struggling on saturdays since his return. It just became more evident when compared to top drivers like Alonso and Vettel.
