    You better should focus why Ferrari screwed Kimi for Vettel again instead of moaning about the sun shining in Hamilton's face.

    Agreed but the season is long still.

    We just need a clean start tom and we have a strong chance. This is a way different circuit than in Hungary and Lewis doesn't have his moving chicane to cover his rear. Then again, our strategists and pit crew should be focused and not screw us up again!

    Mercs carrying more wing than Ferrari ... so middle sector they r fastest. S1&S3 they r slow compared to ferrari.
    If it stays dry tmrw. Vet should take ham at S1. That’s the only chance.

    How come ferrari missed kimi’s fuel board. Great ... good start after summer break. Costly mistake.!! Every mistake will haunt ferrari badly, with fastest car they aren’t delivering the best.

    Ferrari had a good PU last year as well..

    P2 is not bad, we have long Kemmel straight & better PU, that’s where Vettel’s chances are

    Last time Lewis said, ferrari had the fastest car. But mercs as a team delivering the best that is getting these results.
    Now I agree with his statement.

    They have Ocon in 3rd on the inside line who is merc no.3 the amount of times he has helped hamilton, lookout for him "accidentally" taking out Vettel and getting a nice seat at Williams

    I'm not woried about tomorrow in any weather conditions. Over a course of an entire race distance the power advantage should come into play. With this grid now it's just a little bit more difficult but we should be OK and win without any mechanical or technical problems. Over one lap in changing conditions anything can happen and Lewis drove the best lap. Seb looked like he was playing it safe. Too bad about Kimi because he could have been on pole. Why did he come in? He was shaking his head in the garage. Had someone gambled on inters straight out fo the pits that would have been the pole lap. Bottas was first out of the pits probably being ready for a tow but spun. It wouldn't have made a difference as they all pitted on that out lap anyway.

    If Seb gets a clean start, he may get a chance going into Le Combes on lap one or when the DRS is available. He Seb isn't P1 after 5 laps I don't think it will happen.

    Kimi can still be on the podium.

    It’s the gap cut down on ham, that is needed for the hour. Isn’t happening, last 3 races ferrari are really unlucky. Wet track spoiled their chances, I’m surprised that Ferrari didn’t overcome it.

    To all the pessimists.
    It can change with a DNF for Lewis.
    Over the course of a season luck evens out and fastest car comes on top.
    He has the pole but remember this is a fast track without those thinner tyres.
    Race is where it is all decided.

    Given Seb's gap to Hamilton in the WDC it is understandable he would take it a bit more cautiously.
    He is second. Kimi is 6th but I expect him to be 3rd with 2 or 3 laps.

    Vettel to radio was saying it was very messy, as they'v both seen something during Q3, but they will discuss it afterwards. Wonder how badly kimi must be fuming

    Vettel: It was just not as calm as I think it could have been. It didn't feel as if I got everything out for various reasons, therefore it was a bit of a scrappy session. But it can be a lot worse.

    Atleast Vettel & kimi hold fastest track record now, if cars will be slower next year.

    Ferrari don't seem to have the advantage over mercs anymore and are evenly matched now looking at Q2.

    Mercs were absolutely flying in s2 , Kimi and vettel takeoff in s1 and s3

    we will never know mate.....usually is Q3 is where Ferrari and Merc turn up their engines and run it at full beans....so we never got to see who has made the best upgrade of the SPEC 3 engine....we were rubbed and NOT seen that...but i'm sure we'll see that at the next power track....MONZa

    I am so angry now.

    Kimi will be on podium but so what. The perfect opportunity to have a glorious win and second place in the race despite the rainy conditions on quali. Then once again lazy ass pit work and Kimi is screwed.

    Well Vettel, Hamilton, Räikkönen it will be then. Not bad.

    Ferrari didn't cared about Kimi, i just saw his interview and Kimi was asked about fuel issue and he wanted to say no but he than tried to say something else which simply means Ferrari messed up Kimi to make sure he did not beat Vettel's time but instead now has Hamilton beat Vettel's time. Like i said, stop moaning about Hamilton and focus on Ferrari screwing up Kimi time after time to benefit Vettel

    Ferrari can ask Kimi to let Vettel through in the race, and hold Lewis up. Kimi will help the team, as he's done in the past
    Makes no sense to put Kimi at the back.

    Last year Merc engine was too strong, this year with DRS everything is possible. Even Kimi will be in the mix if he can clear the FI's quickly.

    Spa has lots of overtaking spots so holding up Hamilton was never an option and does Vettel need all that help SMH
