    Seems like a bizarre choice and unnecessary risk sending Vettel and Stroll out on mediums


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 508 ✭✭✭ Kyle Faint Upstart

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,406 ✭✭✭✭ namloc1980


    Hulk caught out there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,751 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    Gasly, Albon, Hulkenberg, Kvyat & Russell out from Q2.

    Seems to have paid off for both in the end, too much squeaky bumtime imho! Really poor for Albon :(

    Albon in big trouble now surely, just not delivering.



    Stroll lucky. Himself and Gasly with identical times.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,285 ✭✭✭ Adamocovic


    Still hoping a mad race tomorrow sees the Hulk move up


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,544 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    The Hulk is out of Qualiefying:(⁷


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,123 ✭✭✭✭ skipper_G


    Albon out qualified by Gasly, won't help Albon's confidence.

    Stroll was only through on mediums by a stroke of luck at the end.

    In fairness to Hulk, even though he was on softs he is close to stroll - overall a good showing. Still, disappointing.

    Lando's helmet :D

    Massive gap from the Merc to the rest, well over a second!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,502 ✭✭✭ This is it


    Crazy the time between the Mercs and the rest


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,406 ✭✭✭✭ namloc1980


    The Mercs are a mile ahead here in Q3. Absolutely dominant.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,751 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    Hamilton did a 1:24.616. He has the fastest lap record at Silverstone to date.

    Bottas is 2nd with 1:24.766.

    Think it was mentioned at an earlier race this year but Merc have the same number of 1-2 qualifying results as Ferrari. That's just mental, let alone the second gap.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,843 ✭✭✭ Cool_CM


    Both Mercs being over a second ahead of everybody else in a Q3 session is insane


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,748 ✭✭✭ CFlat


    2.5 secs between the Mercs and 10th place. Jaysus.

    Hamilton did a 1:24.616. He has the fastest lap record at Silverstone to date.

    Bottas is 2nd with 1:24.766.

    Previous lap record was Bottas Pole from last year:

    Date: 13 July 2019

    F1 Car: Mercedes W10
    Speed: 249.228 km/h

    The gap between Verstappen and Bottas is a second. Pretty much 3 tenths in every sector. That Merc is a beast everywhere


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,671 ✭✭✭✭ Inquitus


    Hamilton found another three 10ths, Bottas matched Hamiltons earlier Q3 time, Hamilton on Pole! Verstappen, best of the rest, just ahead of LeClerc who drastically outperformed Vettel, Norris with a good lap too to be best of the non Merc/RB/Ferrari!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,751 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    Hamilton has pole with 1:24.303.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,502 ✭✭✭ This is it


    Well done LeClerc all things considered


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,406 ✭✭✭✭ namloc1980


    So a Merc procession in store for tomorrow. A second faster than Max in 3rd is insane.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,285 ✭✭✭ Adamocovic


    No doubt Mercs will walk away with it again.

    It’s crazy how much faster of a car it is. Shame Bottas doesn’t look like he can at least put up a fight with Lewis to give us some entertainment.

    Ridiculous how much faster it is.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,544 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    I have to say that the was not a great qualifying season. In fact I think it was the most boring one this year. Hopefully the race is better and something happens in it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,123 ✭✭✭✭ skipper_G


    Not unexpected at the front, but great laps from Norris and Leclerc.

    Vettel P10, enough said


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,852 ✭✭✭ Acosta


    Argh just spent an hour watching that irritating moron Crofty Croft on Sky not realising it was live on C4

    Vettels time proving the Ferrari have made the right call getting rid of him. Sad really considering his dominance in the early 2010s.
