    P2 - Bottas 1:30.937
    P3 - Bottas 1:30.159

    Qualifying
    1 - Hamilton 1:28.319

    Yeah, I'm think Lewis will be back on top by with the RBs 2 and 3 (this is my race prediction).

    That would be great because l am worried about his future. He needs to get back to the front or he would exit by the back door.

    I think Mercedes would be their usual form at Paul Ricard. But Redbull shall continue to be a headache for them l think.

    Merc may want to continue to appear shaky in France , because the track apparently suits them .
    It wouldn't do to hear "they're back" quite yet .

    Red Bull is suppose to be getting a new power unit from Honda. They are hoping for more reliability and power.

    Usually one of those comes at the expense of the other. I think the Merc's are still a step ahead, but if this is true we may continue to have a good championship fight.

    What about those dodgy Pirelli tyres? Any bet we shall have another blowout at this race? A lengthy investigation that resulted in a "nobody is to blame verdict" but a detailed explanation of how to use the tyres. There is something iffy going on there. Either Pirelli has produced dodgy tyres or both Redbull and Aston Martin are up to no good. Something dodgy happened.

    Ocon shall grow in stature now with a new three years deal. He shall be one to watch next season.

    We are set for another brilliant race as Redbull continue to make Mercedes squirm. This is a Mercedes track, so a Redbull win here would spell trouble for Mercedes. The usual air of confidence may begin to evaporate. The general expectation is that Mercedes would win this race and we are back to the status quo. For the sake of a tough entertaining season, l hope Mercedes bounce back.

    That said, l think we shall come out of the triple-header with a clear picture of where the titles would end up at Abu Dhabi. Particularly as Hamilton tends to ramp up the points in the second half of the season. Unfortunately, Verstappen has failed to build a sizeable gap going into the triple header. Hence he would be looking to win at least one of the triple races. His failure to do so would effectively put him at a huge disadvantage in the second half of the season which is full of Mercedes tracks.

    The Mercedes seem to be back to normal. They are looking rapid.
