  1. I’m happy for Sainz, although race pace is another matter. Latifi did well until Q3.

    I’ll say it – that was a million times better than a sprint race!

    1. Only cos it was wet?

    2. I’ll say it – a sprint race in those conditions would have been pretty decent too.

  3. Latifi – lol!!!!

  4. @petebaldwin Every weekend run to the proper format is a billion times better than the silly sprint.

    If we had the silly sprint gimmick this weekend we’d have had a dry qualifying.

      @roger-ayles Yeah, but more importantly, we would have had a wet sprint right? ;-) /s

      Agree though, this was much better than last year’s completely uneventful sprint.

  5. Good job by Carlos!

    Anyone beaten by Nicky in the old Williams should probably look for a second career elsewhere.

    Especially dreadful today: Daniel, the Aston Martins, and the young Mr Schumacher.

    1. Ocon wasn’t great either. 3 seconds off Alonso in Q2.

      1. Agreed 👍

      2. @jabr
        Ocon has been beaten by Alonso in qualy with huge gaps since Monaco. Though he managed to keep a low profile hoping the storm would pass because he is usually very talkative when things aren’t going his way by putting the blame on anything but himself..

      3. You forget Bottas being humiliated by Zhou

    2. The young Schumi was about on par with KMag, until the last lap from Kevin, so I would say it’s more a Haas issue than a Mick issue.
      Qualifying in the rain is more than pure driving fast. You also need to be in the right place at the right moment. Even being behind a train of cars can get you a small advantage, due to a drier line, until you get a yellow flag or lack visibility.

      1. The story i heard is that a part of mags steering rod was incomplete with very bad setup as a result.

        1. That is what apparently happened on Mick Schumacher’s Haas.

  6. Exciting qualifier. Zhou Guyanyu deserves a special mention.

    1. It was an impressive showing, especially considering the one lap pace Bottas has shown at the track in previous years.

  7. Great qualifying, in difficult situations. Seems the British don’t like the dancing moves of Verstappen much, or was it something else? If Lewis were to be boo-ed like that in Spa or Zandvoort, all hell would break loose here about racists and unsportsmanship… Mirror time, lads!

    1. You can condemn today’s booing without dragging in Lewis and racism. Grow up.

  8. I wonder if the Mercedes sacrificed additional downforce which they’d need in the wet condition for a gambled ‘dry race setup’? Or are the cars allowed to change their setup in parc ferme to suit dryer conditions?

    1. Mercedes were already slower in top speed in the dry yesterday so perhaps carrying more wing than the top four. They can’t change that now. In Canada they split their set ups high drag and low drag and while low drag (Hamilton) was faster in the dry they both got smoked in the race.

  9. What on earth is going on at Aston-martin?
