    2017 Russian Grand Prix

    We're 40 minutes from qualifying, we'd better have a Russian GP thread hadn't we? Ferrari looking very good so far. The question is, what do Mercedes have left in the bag.

    Ferrari are looking very strong after P3 It will be hard for Merc to keep them off pole. Ferrari seem to have a wide operating window for their tires, while Mercedes is struggling with rears. It could be another "Walk Like An Egyptian"

    First all-Ferrari front row since 2008?
    And Hamilton beaten by Bottas for the second quali in a row.

    FORZA FERRARI!

    Damn, that was close though. I thought Kimi had it.

    Lets hope he gets a good run and comes back into the championship!

    Great job from Ferrari to see them on top again.

    Although, it's a shame to see Vettel on top, especially after his behaviour last year in the likes of Mexico, for which he should have been given a very lengthy ban. However, it is what it is, and life doesn't always give spoiled brats what they deserve, we all know that.

    Good to see Kimi up there.

    Shocker from Hamilton. Worst qualifying I can remember from him in many years. Has the same car as Bottas in the end so he can have no excuses. The car looked awful on board in the final sector. Totally unsettled. Not sure if Bottas was the same as didn't see the onboard but Mercedes have a lotof work to do in order to win this championship.

    The biggest shock for me was that a shabby lap in a Mercedes is still 1.2s quicker than a good lap in the 3rd best car.
