    Red flag. They did well to get that far into the session!

    Well done George Russell!


  • Registered Users Posts: 613 ✭✭✭ weekaizer


    Massive disappointment for Perez... must have very little downforce on car. Well done mr. Russell.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,003 ✭✭✭✭ skipper_G


    Russell into Q2, did well.

    Perez was disappointing, car has looked good all weekend. At least Stroll managed to get through so still hope for something from the weekend.

    Nice job by Russell. The Williams car is better set up than Racing point for wet weather.

    Hopefully the rain comes down heavier when Merc haven't got a hot lap in.

    Very disappointing for Perez. That car hates the wet.

    I know its not relevant now cause of the wet conditions

    But in dry conditions why is it Q2 tyres are the ones used by the top 10 when they qualify? Why not Q3?

    The top 10 get a qualifying only extra set for Q3 so they can go flat out. That set is given back at the end of the session.

    Amazing to the difference on that onboard shot in Stroll's driving style from wet to dry. Nice and smooth with the steering input, in normal conditions he's always busy sawing at the wheel

    Is that the only reason? So they will go flat out in Q3?

    It seems a bit punishing, being 11 or 12 on the grid with free choice and new tyres is much better than 9 or 10 with old tyres

    Poor Ferrari, that was desperate!


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,579 ✭✭✭✭ namloc1980


    Leclerc out. That Ferrari is terrible.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    The Ferraris couldn't go any faster than the Williams
    Dear God....


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,365 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    Russell delighted with the efforts there. Beat a good few drivers and teams.

    Russell P12, happy for him with a good showing. He doesn't have many chances to shine in that car.


  • Registered Users Posts: 356 ✭✭ BikeRacer


    What odds would you have got yesterday on a Williams out qualifying both Racing points? Fantastic stuff from Russell.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,671 ✭✭✭ Faugheen


    Less than a tenth between Russell and Q3. Great effort. Good to see the Williams being competitive at least.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,901 ✭✭✭✭ pjohnson


    Stroll should have booted out Vettel if he hadn't slipped at the last corner.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,134 ✭✭✭ Harika


    Ferrari could not improve while around them they could.

    Another session where Russell builds up his reputation.

    Probably the most talented of the drivers from his intake but was tossed into a car so far behind the rest. Put in rain where driver ability (and a bit of luck) has more effect and he did some job.

    When’s the last time Williams qualified as high up as P12?

    Can’t wait to see Russell in a competitive car.

    Super lap there by Hamilton, all sectors purple

    Edit... And he just beat it by going all purple in all sectors again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,849 ✭✭✭ Cool_CM


    Disaster for Max


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,003 ✭✭✭✭ skipper_G


    That lap from Hamilton is absolutely stunning. 1.2 seconds clear

    I’m not a Hamilton fan but I have to say his performance in qualifying was outstanding.

    Wouldn't have made a difference. Still fantastic driving from Max but Hamilton the class of the field in the rain yet again. Lights out going to be fun tomorrow. :)

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he’s in the Merc next season. There’s no way he settles for another season in a dog of a car unless something else is coming down the line.

    Super laps by Hamilton, Sainz and Ocon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,105 ✭✭✭✭ Buttonftw


    Just got back to see the top 3, assumed there'd be no running damnit :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,134 ✭✭✭ Harika


    Hope F2 race will now go ahead

    Hopefully Lewis will win tomorrow. Would like to see Ocon finish in the top three too.
