  1. Weird offs for Mercs & Leclerc wasn’t far off from getting his final flyer invalidated.
    I wonder if Checo would get dropped to P11 behind Gasly.
    I immediately noted his corner cut, so surprisingly his lap didn’t get taken away straightaway.

    1. I think is a slam dunk disqualification from Q3 for Perez. I’m not sure how the stewards missed it since it was so glaring.

      1. If his q2 lap time is deletd he should be back to 13th/14th.

    2. Agreed on the weird. There’s no way Hamilton should have gone off where he did. That said they are blaiming the windy conditions for that one.

  2. Latifi outrunning a 4-time world champion…..that’s one thing i never expected to see. xD (did miss most of qauli, must admit, so if there is a bigger reason he’s last….let me know).

  3. I wonder what Mercedes were experimenting with this time? They say they adjusted Russell’s car to make it go faster, which usually means reducing drag, eg rear wing. What this means is the cars will be in the garage over night for rebuilds, i wonder what else will find its way onto the car overnight? A new gear box?

  4. Max’s last lap looked like he went past track limits. It was quite similar to other deleted laps from this qualifying session. My question is why are both the Red BUlls being let off the hook for track limits? The Perez one was blatant. We only got a quick replay of Verstappen’s last lap before the interviews. Thoughts?

  5. Did the zeros cost extra?

    1. Hahahaha yeah weird timing there

  6. Perez needs to be dropped to 12th and Gasly put ahead of LH
