Yep , it actually chocked the world ...

I read it and it shows what a proper upbringing can do for a man that's on top of his game with a car that's fully deserved.

well, PER doing what should be prevented no matter what......

I have the feeling that MERC did close the gap a bit on RB with their upgrades.

Let's hope for a close race with no crashes tomorrow

I think that VER is slowing down a bit on purpose in the last 2 laps to spare the car.

Also smart move to let PER go in the pits to be able to work on the car.

ALO's patented "take the outside line" in the first few turns and simply drive around the competition is awesome....he's done this a number of times in his career.

ALO had an epic start, then made his car the width of the track. Nicely done.

Checo….I keep defending you then you end up with Mazespin…. *facepalm*

Also, did you see the new in-car graphic showing the car in front?

poor start from Lewis made things bad in a flash.. but well done for Max for snatching the pole.. im positive for Mercs on tomorrows race..

im not sure im into this trial format actually.. forget about the people who goes to track on Saturday for half an hour race action.. i d like to see traditional quali results based on one lap.. quali session is a very fun thing and having a pole term shouldnt be spoiled i believe.. im ok for a sprint race and some more points but this format is somehow not fitting.. cause if Saturday's race is all for pure speed.. then it means having fastest lap should bring a point as well but it doesnt..

but more importantly.. i dont like the format because of a gamble for cars' setup.. basically after an hour on Friaday teams are not allowed to touch the cars.. it means more sim runs before each weekend and it gives a room for luck as well..

the best idea of this format is the lorry that drivers wave after the race.. though prior the race there was a lorry already.. this format is not set properly.. having a free practice after quali is absurd..

having a cost-cap rule.. and saying ok go for a sprint race and give everything you have is contradicting.. if there was a Saturday race engine for example like in the past (for quali) it d make more sense.. how can you take more risks financial wise when there is more to lose anyway..

Dissapointing for Checo. As much I never thought he will beat Max, this is rookie like for a caliber of driver like him.

The price he pays for setting car up on his own, the 16B is not like a normal run o the mill F1 car..
and it's POLE position for Max tomorrow with Checo back in 18th
