Latest post of the previous page:

Firstly, thanks for the thread intro, that was wonderful!

To be honest even though the field is a bit closer together, it seems like the order is pretty much the same as was end of last year. I was expecting a bit more variation (McLaren being a bit higher up for example). Alfa seems to have a really decent car though.

Good heavens, what have Williams done?

Williams propping up the time sheets is not even worthy of a joke anymore. It's just...sad.

Also, like others said, great thread intro @Everso Biggyballies. I give it a 9/10, it was just missing mongols!

I fully expect this or next season to be their final one. Either they fold or get sold off.

They won't fold. Being sold is a high probability yet that's almost completely dependent on Frank no longer being around.

Hamilton topped FP3 too, but Ferrari were 2nd and 3rd. People are still saying Ferrari are sandbagging. Qualifying is starting in 15 minutes so I guess we get to find out soon!

In 2018 Lewis easily topped FP1, FP2, Q3, Q2 and Q1. Vettel won the race. This year Ferrari are only a gnat's dick behind on pace. So let's see.

Well, I think that was hugely significant Q1. Leclerc at the top. Both Toro Rossos faster than both Red Bulls. Norris into Q2 and Sainz out. An Alfa Romeo in 4th place, but NOT Kimi. Amazing.

Bottas's Q2 time 6 minutes from the end of the session is only a tenth of a second slower than last year's pole...

Hello from Dubai.

Difficult to choose between F1 qualifying and the qualifying for tomorrow's camel race.
