    1. Ricciardo and Verstappen have switched their schedule due to illness of Ricciardo.

        1. RBR’s official website does mention that it will be Max/Dan/Max/Dan:

          1. @Maximilian That isn’t’ what I meant, though. I was referring to the claim ‘illness of Ricciardo.’

          2. Exactly. Would’ve been Ricciardo according to that, but now it’s Verstappen.

    2. The Williams car seems to be too sensible and nervous in both corner entry/exit. The team is now searching for the optimum balance of the car, a difficult task for the two inexpert rookies that’s why Kubica feedback is needed at this stage

      1. Sensible? You mean sensitive?

      Robert reduced to a test driver?

      1. Well, since he’s not a race driver in any of the teams, I’m gonna say yes.
