    These new Top Trumps style stats really are a load of toss.

    Interesting that this is first quali with new anti flexi wing tests plus cameras monitoring flex yet I haven't noticed any footage on rear wings.
    Seen quite a lot of flex in front wings from great camera shots on max's car. Not seen mercs front wing in camera shots.

    Very much agree. The Aws system is just naff. In race they keep posting corner speed traps but only ever displaying 1 driver so useless. Then after a few cars have pitted the 'pit window open' graphic pops up! Seems so naff.

    The RBR is the fastest car on the softs, but Merc on the 2 tyre compounds they'll be racing with.
    Can't see past a Hamilton win, might even be a 1-2.

    Some great laps there. Merc really pulled some performance out for those last laps to get closer to max.
    Great for Carlos.

    as long as Max gets away well, I think if Hamilton gets the drop on him that's it, he'll just drive away.

    I wonder if Perez is saving his tyres to help max when pit stops start?

    Merc should let Bottas have a go, he looks like he has the pace to win.

    Looks like it's going to be real hard work passing Max today.
