    Yeah , pretty amazing , eh ?
    I didn't mention it because nobody would have believed I was serious about complimenting him .
    He broke his own record , and then broke his own record , and then broke his own record again .
    He's awfully hard on those statistics people .

    Good thing he drives good .

    He's gotta be the outright record holder for number of hairstyles , too (sorry , maybe a little jealous there - little hair , and same style since '74 ).

    Well at least there is an active thread about the qually today!

    Overall no big surprises, and Merc continue to dominate. I'm not sure I can agree with Ferrari getting away with Leclerc's release, but they seem hit and miss on pit exits at times. Seb seems lost this weekend, and the Hulk is back in a seat in the pink Merc. We'll see what he can make of it. It's great to see Mclaren up near the front again, it's been way to long. And at the rate things are going, Albon might be the first involved in the next silly season. While comparison to Max is tough, I think there are drivers that could consistently put that car farther up on the grid.


    And I think we should all perform a welfare check on Bagwan, as lockdowns have not been good to him. I'll bring the beer.

    I think Stroll is doing Canada proud at the mo. Interesting to see him take on the mantle as the number one driver for racing Point this weekend. And he has stepped up with a good showing. Shame, Perez is down with COVID, l have a feeling that he may have pushed the team a little further up the grid with his feedback to the team. That said, Hulkenburg did a great job coming out of the cold to join a team he has not driven for in four years. Great effort!

    Hamilton racks up the records and was simply the best after a small setback in Q2. Bottas has just seen what a mountain he has to climb to win a title with Hammy in the other car. It was quite surprising to see Redbull a full second behind the Mercedes of Hamilton. They are not real contenders this season, but l expect them to win a few races.

    How Leclerc outshines Vettel most of this season! Just as Norris is equally thrashing Sainz. Maybe Ferrari hired the wrong Mclaren driver :-)

    Albon is struggling, l think he is not getting the right level of support he needs. We saw this trait with Ricciado and Gasly before they departed the team. It is becoming increasingly apparent that Albon is getting lesser and lesser support with each race weekend.

    Verstappen, what a star! The pesky dutchman just wrings out every gram of performance in that Redbull and somehow manages to put it ahead of the rest. I would give my left foot to see Verstappen in the Mercedes alongside Hamilton. What a cracking racing that would produce.

    Well, Sunday is another day. Points are not awarded for qualifying positions, so bring on the race.

    Good weekend for Hamilton so far. Pole for the British GP and Arsenal winning the FA Cup.

    Pérez' car apparently came over all Pérez and got sick.

    Hülkenberg won't be able to start the race due to technical problems with the Racing Point's power unit.

    It's somewhat frustrating to see Magnussen out in an accident that isn't his fault. That's a new one and I'm not sure how to deal with it.

    Those clean-ups are taking forever today.
