Good drives by Hamilton and Bottas - and good signs for Mercedes for any future wet weather.

Tyre choices could mix things up a lot tomorrow.




Choice of tires could make life interesting with different teams starting on different compounds betting on the overcut, undercut or more rain. :nod:

Edit: looking at weather reports, doesn't look much like rain tomorrow.

The Red Bull just looked off in the rain.

Yeah, I think it was a surprise to everyone, especially considering how often Red Bull likes to talk up their chances in the wet. Now we've seen how they look in a fully wet session, and it really wasn't pretty. Ricciardo was totally off the pace, and frankly so was Max, relative to the other top cars. Very puzzling from a team that usually delivers a strong wet weather package.

Another thing I noticed with interest was how much better Toro Rosso looked when it started to rain. Makes you wonder if Toro Rosso might have built a very good car once more, and Gasly wasn't wrong about the Honda engine still being quite down on power...

All this talk about Mercedes being hard on tires seems to be a year late to me. This year tire life has been a strength for Mercedes relative to Ferrari.

Maybe rbr trimmed so much down force to be competitive in the dry that the car suffered in the wet??? They both looked uncharicterically bad today but I suspect they ran the least amount of wing relative to the other cars.
