  1. Great jobs from Hamiton, Alonso, Grosjean and Kimi!

  2. Look at that! Kimi Raikonen equalling Vettel in quali this year 10 vs 10…

    And yet again, on ultimate pace Hamilton has a touch in hand… but not much, not much at all.

    1. Whoever finishes the first lap in front wins the race.

  3. That MERC though………

  4. Hell of a middle sector …oh Lewis where is that coming from

    VES in the sandwich between the Ferrari’s. Maybe they should shut down the Ferrari teamradio tomorrow, as a precautionary measure :p.

  6. The biggest surprise is Williams not getting into q3 given their pace in the practice, if force India scores well tomorrow might well be the final nail in the coffin for force India.

    1. raveendhana, I feel that williams will probably be more competitive in the race. Bottas has often done well from 11th. Plus he gets to start on fresh tyres. I think Bottas may be able to get past both force india’s as overall, the Willimas seems to have been a fair bit better this weekend. Force india just suddenly seemed to come from nowhere so I could well be wrong.

      1. force india has been inherently faster most races, even in the circuit that was said to suit williams so lets see

  7. Ocon drops 3 grid places for blocking Palmer in Q1. That puts Ocon dead last starting tomorrow, and promotes the Saubers ahead by one spot.

    Apparently, the Manor pitwall failed to warn Ocon about Palmer’s approaching car.

    Verstappen beats Ricciardo yet again .. last 5 races it is 4-1 for Max against Daniel

  9. I hope verstappen don’t take out a Merc. Since he doesn’t care who is champ.

    1. Arnoud Ric has outscored Max in the last 5 Races!!!! Isnt it about Sundays?

  10. Raikonnen is owning Sebastian in quali over the 2nd half of the season. Who would have ever thought that an “excellent” qualifier like Seb would get beaten by an old slouch like kimi.

    I think 2016 has done more damage to Vettels reputation than the beating he got from Dan in 2014.

    Good to see Alonso in the top 10 again and Kvyat ahead of his team mate as well.
