    British Grand Prix 2018

    This forum is really slacking. Qually over and no thread yet.

    Apparently I just missed a great qualification session. Thanks to my cable package the qually was on a news network that isn't in my package.



    Formula 1 British Grand Prix – Full qualifying classification

    Q3

    1. Lewis Hamilton GBR Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport 1m 25.892s

    2. Sebastian Vettel GER Scuderia Ferrari 1m 25.936s

    3. Kimi Raikkonen FIN Scuderia Ferrari 1m 25.990s

    4. Valtteri Bottas FIN Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport 1m 26.217s

    5. Max Verstappen NED Aston Martin Red Bull Racing 1m 26.602s

    6. Daniel Ricciardo AUS Aston Martin Red Bull Racing 1m 27.099s

    7. Kevin Magnussen DEN Haas F1 Team 1m 27.244s

    8. Romain Grosjean FRA Haas F1 Team 1m 27.455s

    9. Charles Leclerc MON Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team 1m 27.879s

    10. Esteban Ocon FRA Sahara Force India F1 Team 1m 28.194s


    Less than 1/10th of a second spreading the top 3 drivers, and both Ferrari's ahead of Bottas. Leclerc in 9th on the grid! Both Haas cars in Q3 again as well.

    Great job by Hamilton, and once again a fantastic performance from Leclerc.

    What I want to know, though, is who is the numpty at Silverstone flying the Union Flag upside down?

    And another disastrous performance by Williams in qualifying for their home Grand Prix.

    Apparently hitting Hamilton in Britain is twice as bad as hitting Bottas in France.

    Merc poor strategy not to change Bottas tyre may have cost them the win of this brilliant race.

    If Bottas had changed tyres at the same time as Vettel, he still would have been behind the German on track and with the Ferrari appearing to be the faster car on race day, I doubt the Finn would have been able to overtake Seb.

    That useless Finn cost Hamilton the win today at turn 3. As I mentioned before, 5-10 seconds is not enough, especially when the other deivers race is ruined. You can’t be allowed to simply carry on with a mere 10 second penalty. A mandatory 10 second stop go would have been the only punishment reasonable.

    Great finish to the race though. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Maybe, maybe not - Hamilton was in P3 at that time, having had a terrible start. I'm not sure he would have been able to pass Vettel on track today and with Mercedes' recent form in strategic matters, I doubt he would have passed the Ferrari in the pits.
