Maybe this updated part of the bargeboard made Haas as competitive as Red Bull:

According to one report Mercedes are gaining up to 4 tenths in the final sector alone. That's monstrous!

Hamilton quickest lap was 5/10's is S3.

Seems Mercedes are dominate in the cooler temps there as well.

Renault should hang their heads in shame at the way they've started this season.

Gone from 4th best to maybe 7th or 8th.

Kubica looking very poor. 1.2 seconds behind Russle. we say Stroll is poor and he isn't even 2 tenths behind Perez. I really don't know if williams will keep him the whole season. I know Williams is bad, but I don't think there has been a weaker driver in F1 for quite some years. Given what he has been through, that does make me change my view a bit, but ignoring that and looking at his performance, it just doesn't look good enough.

I'd have to agree he doesn't look like he belongs at the moment

So Ric just did a 1:17.3 so what on earth were Renault playing at coasting in Q1? That's a full second faster than either Renault's Q1 time?

I believe they switched their chassis as he was complaining about them not being equal. But He’s even further behind. Nowhere to hide now. Ocon in the car by the summer is a possibility.

Well in the end Ricciardo ended up 3/10's quicker than the quickest McLaren but it's still not good enough from a factory team with the resources they have at their disposal.

There was a supposed rumour Kubica would be replaced by Latifi before the season ends. Kubica is sadly struggling.

Agreed. They look to have really messed up in Q1 too because clearly they'd turned things down too much and nearly had both cars out

I read that somewhere too. If they keep him it's looking like the reasons must be financial

Latifi doesn't have the licence points so that's a non starter. I don't see Williams replacing Kubica unless there is a financial incentive to. Him being a second behind Russell costs them nothing whilst they are miles off the pace.

Hamilton has a penchant for fighting back in qualifying to be fair. He's pretty reliable in that regard

The time they gain in the final sector is unreal.

Not really sure why Ferrari have sent Leclerc out so early here?

I'm actually starting to find Hamilton's struggles* compared to Bottas quite bizzare.

*I know they aren't really struggles in the grand scheme of things.

I stand corrected! Bottas can be pretty proud of that one I think. 6 tenths on Hamilton is no mean feat

Verstappen is an animal of a driver. The driver of 2019 so far and the fastest out there right now IMO.

In other news is Leclerc being a bit overblown? All the hype but he's only really beaten Vettel once so far. He's good but certainly no Ricciardo.

he didn't manage to string a lap together, to be fair. I don't think it's reflective of ultimate pace.

It's rare for Hamilton to mess up in qualifying. I think he's allowed one poor Saturday! :twisted:

I think Russel deserves a shout, too. It's the closest any Williams has been to another car and he completely trounced his team mate

Leclerc messed up my two by two prediction :evil: . To be fair to him he's this is the first time Vettel looks to have outclassed him I think?

The quicker Pirelli get out of F1 the better, just a 2 degree temperature drop.

This is due to Gasly and nothing else, if Ricciardo was still in the other car it wont look abnormal the Redbull car is exactly where it is supposed to be!

Where would you put Bottas then?

Yeah. No one improved on their last runs. All were about 1/2 second slower, mainly through the 3rd sector.

Bottas really smashed Hamilton here. He’s been so impressive so far. Looks like Lewis may have a real battle on his hands. Ferrari is no longer a contender for the title in my book. I think Rosberg was right when he said their concept lacks downforce. It’s doubtful they will be able to find enough downforce throughout the yea while merc won’t be standing still. Disappointing for the sport but you’ve gotta give it up for Merc as they have produced another phenomenal car again after yet another regulation change. Unbelievable. Kudos to Max who continues to punch above his weight, and Vettel for outclassing Leclerc here. That race has all the ingredients to be an absolute borefest but I hope Lewis finds a way past, although I must say it’s going to be impossible if he doesn’t do it at the start.

Why do I feel tomorrow's race might be the most boring race of the season.
