  1. Goat on Pole!

    1. Wah wah wah wah. I can only suggest, for your own health and sanity, to just accept Lewis is a great driver. Probably the greatest. Your constant whining wont change anything.

    2. True Hamilton gets paid more than Verstappen.

  2. Based on recent events, I reckon Albon to lose out on the start anyway.

    1. he’s starting on softs, no?

      1. @njoydesign No, medium. Everyone in the top ten on the middle compound.

        1. @jerejj
          I think i disagree, both Norris and Albon set their fastest laps on softs in Q2.

          1. @njoydesign No, they backed off on those laps.

  3. I’m expecting a boring one tomorrow – – – let’s wait and see :)

    1. Sadly… I think the same. Don’t be surprised if after a boring race, we will have a surprise Safety Car with 15-10 laps remaining.

      1. @nullapax @luigismen
        This track generally produces decent racing, so doesn’t necessarily require weather conditions or anything extraordinary for an exciting race.

  4. Unless something very strange happens, we will have to endure another boring race. I don’t think it’s worth losing time.
    Well done Mercedes, anyway.

    1. @jorge-lardone This track generally produces decent racing, so doesn’t necessarily require weather conditions or anything extraordinary for an exciting race.

  5. Vettel ahead of Leclerc again in qualifying.

    1. @david-br I presume you are referring to Turkey when you say “again”, though I wouldn’t really read anything into the Turkish GP given how abnormal that race was.

      1. Actually I meant qualifying in Turkey where Vettel was half a second ahead. I thought the difference then was down mainly to Vettel being better than Leclerc in wet conditions (which I think is true). That doesn’t explain the marginal edge in this qualifying session though. I think it’s interesting because it turns around much of the first part of the season. It’s not really being noticed (though Peter Windsor did note Vettel was driving really well, better than Leclerc, around the circuit on Friday). I’ve grown to like Vettel more the past couple of years, a bit more mellow though still amusingly wry, so I’d be really pleased to see him do well at Aston Martin next season.

    2. @david-br True, Leclerc admitted he didn’t perform well.

      1. @f1osaurus Yes, I read that too after posting the comment.

  6. Looking forward to that Albon-Perez match.
