    100 poles. That's quite ridiculous.

    It does look like Lewis is very happy at getting his 100th pole!

    And that everyone else was driving too slow on their warm up lap. Only he was driving at a proper speed (which might be why you did so badly, Yuki).

    How on earth is Lewis beating Max when Red Bull is clearly the quicker car? Maybe Max is going to make Lewis raise his game which Rosberg use to do . Even Jenson was surprised that Max never got pole as we all were.


    Congratulation to the great man on his 100 pole who started out by outqualifying the great Alonso in 2007 and 14 years later is beating up the new kids on the block in slower equipment when we see Ocon putting the once great Alonso to the sword, yet again.


    We need to see Ferrari and Leclerc up at the sharp end as he is as quick as the boys in who at at the top of the grid.


    Lance Stroll restoring order down at AS.


    Once again wee see a sky pundit not looking pleased with history being made.

    Look at Perez performance who's a good driver, actually better then Bottas anyway. No way is the red bull quicker then Mercedes. You probably think the Williams is a quicker car to.

    Both Hamilton and Verstappen seemed happy with their respective positions so I think both teams genuinely think the other is faster here.

    If Hamilton's quicker, it's always the car. <doh> Even if you don't accept the Red Bull is quicker, the margin is tiny, and Hamilton is coming out on top vs Verstappen at the moment.

    Perez has not the one lap pace as Bottas, and as we are talking about Qualifying being a better driver does not mean much. Now, I know you anti Hamilton extremist find it hard to accept what Hamilton is doing to Young Max who is one of the fastest drivers to come into F1, well it's just tough titty.

    I think it's probably safe to say that at this moment, there's not a lot between the RBR and Merc. That could change throughout the season as we race under different conditions. But where we are at now is kinda where we wanted things to be. Two top teams closely matched with their best drivers having to go head to head.

    What we need now is a third team in the mix.

    You can say what you like about Hassespin, but he has an incredible nack for nullifying the impact of every penalty he receives. That's quite a talent.
