Latest post of the previous page:

Silly incident between Bottas and Grosjean. From the outside views it looks like Bottas’ fault as he dives inside Grosjean from miles back. But after seeing the onboard from the Haas, where you can clearly see Grosjean checking his left mirror and noticeably backing off, I’d say he was at fault.

Russell has outqualified Kubica in nearly every qualifying session this season.

Out in Q1 go the Two Williams both Alfa’s andGrosjean

21 - 0 must be the record!

Btw I just put qualifying on. I went to bed at 5pm and ended up sleeping until 10pm. I dunno who is out, but I am guessing both Alfas.

Surprised that Bottas did a Q2 run as he did a lap which will qualify him for Q3 meaning he will not get freedom of tyre choice to start the race on. He will have to use those he used for his fastest Q2 lap. ie softs

in terms of actual races, yes. But didn't Mika destroy Brundle back in 1994?

Paul’s point stands. 21-0 is a record. Whatever Finland’s 2nd most race winning driver did is irrelevant :wink:

Looks like we are spared Ferraris on the front row too. Useless.

Lewis smashes pole and the first thing he does when he gets out of the car is...take a selfie.

Priorities.

Can you imagine Ayrton would have done the same?

I dunno about Ayrton, but James Hunt would have punched someone, smoked a cigarette and gone off for a shag.
