    To say it is pissing down with rain is an understatement.

    Not confident we will get any quali today

    I would agree with you but I voted for Lewis as I think the championship is so tight Bottas will be given orders if Merc are facing a 1, 2 reseult. Otherwise this is a circuit Bottas likes.

    But what incentive does Bottas have to obay orders when this could be one of his last chances of a win?

    If you don't set a time doesn't that mean you have to start from the pitlane?

    Not that I'm aware of, but that's a decent idea. But then they'd just tootle around to put in one timed lap and get in others way.

    Interesting. I thought if you don't set a time in quali it's up to the stewards if they think you would have been in the 107% rule. I think he will he will have to go to stewards but can't see them not allowing him to race.

    They'll be fine. They'll just be starting last. Nothing out of the ordinary.
