    It's the embellishment that gets me. Hard tyres are supposed to be good over a long distance.

    If the tyres were good enough to set FL. Then that meant he could've gone quicker than he did prior to that lap, but didn't.

    It is shame you chaps cannot appreciate an excellent performance when you see one. Because l know you get it but struggle to accept it. Whatever the reason that is for your apprehension, it is really your problem. All true racing fans get it, shame you can't or would not let yourself appreciate it.

    I hope you can understand that using "magical" and "sorcery" in your description of his lap looks from the outside here , like your appreciation of it is a little over the top for some of us .
    Ben pointed this out kinda clearly .

    And , journeyman pointed out they had more speed than they were showing .

    So , you needn't be so prickly about all this .
    We're looking for reasons he was so fast , as there are fast drivers , but not magical ones .

    Yep is was kinda over the top intentionally. Because the lap was fast but extraordinarily so with a 30 laps old tyre. But l get Ben's and your point, l shall bear that in mind in the future. But you must admit, it was a lap that shall talked about for years to come.

    Everyone seem to be talking about who would replace Gasly. I think Redbull would be making a mistake to get rid of Gasly. After all, they moved him up too early, he barely completed a full season before he was called to the senior team. He has hadly completed his first season in the senior team and there is talk of replacing him. That is hardball man!
    However, the temperatures at Silverstone is likely to be very much to Mercede's liking. While there are a number of straights that would favor the Ferrari, there are equally a number of slow corners that would favor the Mercedes. Silverstone is likely to be a showdown between the Ferrari and the Mercedes. It is likely to be very tight in qualifying and in the race. This is one not to miss.
