  1. A good qualifying by Williams, but unfortunately, Sargeant threw out a possible good starting position after reaching Q3, although Leclerc’s error was weirder in comparison.
    Not so great Q3 for Checo, so he stlll has some difficulties in qualifying trim.

    1. Apparently, I got one too many ‘l’ for still.

      1. Thanks for the correction, nobody could understand “stilll”, I was wondering whether that was Klingon talk

        1. Even so, would be nice to be able to edit our comments, I think it’d be more useful than the report button for example, which too often is clicked accidentally.

    2. I think perez’s issues are mostly with a wet track, it’s not rare for him to be 1-2 sec behind what he should do on a drying track.

  2. Some great performances.
    – Seargent into Q3 – pushed to hard after that, but he’s learning
    – Verstappen 1.3s ahead of Perez
    – Norris 0.8s ahead of Piastri (and still thought he could have done more in Q2 and Q3!)
    – Albon looking more and more classy by the race – with his speed, could he go forward in the race?
    – Russell coming alive in the wet and mixed conditions

    Ferrari still seem sort of out of it, which is sad… they’re half a second off McLaren, let alone Red Bull

    6 different teams in the top six — I feel like the race for second will be epic tomorrow, but the race for first was probably won in Q3.

    1. The race for first is probably won before quali even starts nowadays, verstappen is unstoppable even when starting 10th or worse.

  3. Another embarrassing qualifying session for Perez, with 5 other teams cars ahead of him. Good to see Williams finally having a somewhat decent car again, and Mclaren continuing to perform well.

  4. We need more banked corners in F1. No, it doesn’t need to turn into NASCAR, but the option of multiple lines through a corner opens a bunch of possibilities for passing.

    1. Yes, and it looks interesting to see as well, very unusual corner.
