    I wonder if mercs are sandbagging. 7 tenths is a big gap.
    Red is the only color!!!

    Probably the times are a bit meaningless as they only have an hour to set the cars up but here we are facing quali on a Friday evening...and our boys are P4 and P6. Strange weekend doesn't feel real to me and it's all a bit of a circus, but F1 as we know it is being seriously undermined.

    This whole format and schedule is all too weird.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    I agree. This weekend has just begun and I already dislike everything about it. Qualifying was the only part of F1 not broken, yet they keep trying to tinker with it. I just don't understand.

    So the SF1000 proved to be a DUD....let's hope the SF21 will be much better then its predecessor.

    Of course, always for the good of the sport. I mean, we had to put up with 7 years of 1 team/driver dominating. Yet nobody can handle a handful of races won by a different team other than Merc. Lets see what Q3 holds.....

    Stop talking sense mate. Instead of using logic go for conspiracy theories. It's more fun.

    Its always conspiracy theories for the tifosi out in the UK. To many secret Hamilton fans that cant see past the smoke. FYI Hamilton did not get a tow on his last lap that landed him P1. Also worthy to note that Verstappen was complaining about the tires over the radio.

    WOW - Brundle "its looking more 'normalized' at the front now. What a joke this sport is......

    Seek help.

    Bottas just confirmed live on air he was told to punch a hole in the air to benefit Lewis on both timed laps.

    That was better than expected. Charles was phenomenal as usual, but Sainz should've done better. P9 behind a Williams is not a good performance. But tomorrow will decide the grid.

    Where did I say he's great? You are clearly delusional as your either seeing words I've not wrote or your so defensive you think anyone who challenges your baseless theories must automatically support an opposing team.

    I only support Ferrari and as much as I can't stand the likes of Hamilton, Toto (check my post history) and the constant fawning over him by media outlets and personalities I also don't let that effect how I view the FIA. Do you really think other team principals, owners and sponsors and even the drivers would happily go along with the decisions if they thought something underhanded was going on?

    Just now some idiot on Channel 4 said Red Bull missed a tap in today and The mighty Hamilton found a way, don't let that sort of bullshi* narrative cloud everything. It's contagious too because half the forum prior to this weekend is talking about Hamilton and how the FIA have helped mercedes again. There's already this insecurity whenever something changes, it's not healthy.
