    I absolutely hate the run-off. It's a terrible distraction.

    I cast my vote as I won't get to see the action till tomorrow eve. We have all voted the same, which is a shame. Lewis and Merc can not afford to lose on Sunday on pace/driver. Only if there is a crash or other uncontrollable event. However, I don't think it is a slam dunk for Merc, I think RBR will keep them honest.

    They've supposedly put a load of weird cambers in this year to try and improve the racing I believe. Not seen any of the practices yet so I guess I'll wait to be hopefully surprised

    I’m wandering if going for Ham was the right move now. It’s amazing how he can pull it out of the bag in quali though.

    Went Max. Have to share the curse love around a bit. He'll probably fall in to a sink hole on the last lap now.

    He’s learning. At least I hope he is. There is a quick driver in there, but like all quick drivers he needs to learn where the limit is.

    I think there’s an average driver in there. No more than that. As always, it’s pretty well predicted by the junior formulae, and he was okay in those. Not much more than that.

    I wonder what red bull have done? It seems like every tech directive Merc can get FIA to write is actually making red bull faster not slower!

    What was the deal with Tsunoda then? Been flicking between qualifying and Hungary v France.

    Had a spin and backed into the barrier. The back end of that Alpha Tauri doing a lot of strange wobbling as he was going backwards,

    So many crashes in qualifying this season, very poor.

    Confused as to why Sainz is so much quicker than CLC here.
