  1. 15 drivers within a second of pole. Wow.

    1. 13 within a second of the very fastest lap time – still stunningly close.

      Ferrari picked the wrong race to save a set of tires.

    2. The engineers will be doing their best to prevent any racing. “Now, let’s settle into management.”

      1. Cheese tes trike again. Sundays are usually less of a race more Tyre Care GP

      2. *cheese tyres strike again

    3. The Funny party is that a car 0.9sec per lap slower will almost certainly be lapped during a 70 lap race.
      Times need to be much closer to bode well for the race.

      1. 0.9 x 70 = 63 seconds
        But the pole time was 72 seconds
        So actually, cars with a 0.9s average gap won’t be lapped. Anyone within 1s on real race pace should be safe, barring mishaps.

        More to the point, in terms of front to back of the field, we are still looking historically low. For most of F1’s history, the gap from 1st to 5th was probably over 1s/lap in the average race… forget 1st to 15th. It’s a great time to be a fan.

  2. Why didn’t Perez go for one more timed lap?? He finished his lap before the red flag. Or did I see it wrongly?

    1. He wouldn’t have had any battery left. You can’t do two flying laps consecutively, you need a lap in between to recharge.

  3. I am sick of Perez already. Get this guy out of the sport.

    1. Surely in Red Bull they appreciate Checo is not taking any points away from Max, but the WCC lead is slipping away. I expected Ferrari to come out first after the weekend but did not expect such a poor quali from them.

    2. Yup. It’s depressing. It was amusing to see him banging his halo though.
