    Sending Fred out so late for his last q lap caused him to over - cook his tires. He could have had a better grid spot. The team hosed him. Mabe even dorked him a little!

    Fred pretty much wasn't there most of qualifying. Great job by Mercedes and good effort by Norris. Now we'll see how things go tomorrow.

    Dawg............. I believe Fred finished p3 in q2. Just over-cooked his tires trying to get past 'los on his final out lap............. The team dorked him!
    Judging from his sim/race pace he won't be their in the dry............ Wet may be a different Mc'Story.
    Yes Brilliant job by the Merc, and the Mc'McLaren boyz.

    Interesting session. With the track dry, at first it looked like Merc might struggle. But then they pulled off a 1-2 and fooled us all. Strange that almost all the top cars struggled to beat their first S1 times but made time in the final two sectors as well. Hulk did the opposite, beasted S1 and pulled off a P6 start.

    With it expected to rain at least at the race start, along with who really has the race pace, it should be an interesting race at least. Max will have his floor damage fixed, and McLaren still seem to have real pace. Any dicing at the front could be costly. If George and Lewis play the team game they should at least have an advantage at the pointy end of things. Oscar might be able to protect Lando some as well, but only time will tell.

    It could get spicy!

    I'm sure that as i say this Logan will be off at the first turn, but he actually made it to Q2. That may be the highlight of his F1 career.

    Russell going for two in a row....

    It should be a fun race, and it may be unpredictable if the rain comes.

    The second half of the season is setting up for a possible great finish. I wonder if Hamilton is having second thoughts about going to Ferrari.

    McLaren's strategy is rather useless today: Brought Piastri in for intermediates a lap too late and now let Norris stay out on inters a lap too long, allowing Hamilton past.

    Good to see Hamilton on the top step again, though!
