Max wants an extra warm-up lap for Q3 to emulate his Q2 exploits, where the double yellows caused him to abort a fast lap.

It put Bottas off but I think it won't be viewed as a block I think he left enough room.

Max repeats his 1:16.5 using an extra warm-up lap (well he aborted a fairly fast lap later into the lap).

Big target for the rest.

I don't think Max had anywhere better to go in those circumstances.

Unlucky for Verstappen, I think he will get away with the incident but still a bit naughty to back up.

Woah I couldn’t see anyone touching Verstappen for pole after those first runs. Looked like it was just a case of drivers not being able to get into the window for the tyres.

It's backing off from the flying lap that might be a problem to be investigated but I think he will be alright.

The Ferrari has been the car to beat on the shorter, less engine dominaed tracks all year. Kudos to Vettel punting Max into P2.

2018 is going to be fascinating if Mercedes have to change their aero concept.

:thumbup: he put himself off the racing line and slowed so he wouldn’t interfere at the next corner. He couldn’t have done any more and it’s not his fault if Bottas locked up.

Magnificent from Vettel to beat the "super annoyed" Max and Hamilton in his prime. One of the worst quali for Mercedes.

Back to Vettel - he did this in a champ way.

Waiting to hear the penalty for Verstappen. I doubt it can be overlooked.

I pretty sure you're allowed to back off a flying lap if you want to.... I've never heard of that being a problem before. He had backed off way before Bottas caught him. It's not unusual.

So is the VER > RIC gap due to the upgraded engine? It's a solid upgrade if so

Vettel and Verstappen destroyed their team-mates. The cars looked very balanced around the track. Mercedes showed excellent pace during long runs in practice so I think we'll have a three-way battle for the win.

Verstappen was off the racing line. Bottas screwed his lap by locking.

It's natural to blame one's mistake on another.

Bottas would not have seen him before he came around the corner but like I say not an obvious block.

It has to be. Looking at the s1 times max wasnt losing anything to ferrari and merc here. Its probably due to the track as well but the gap to Ric is huge.
