    I guess those marshals are only here for Max. Can't even clear a stranded car.

    The green light on the t-bar is'nt on so the marxhalls cannot touch the car.

    I am sure they have access to insulator gloves. This is not the first time for a F1 to be stranded with ERS light on, but on other tracks where marshals are competent, they get clear out quite fast.

    30 minutes to remove a car off the track is lengthy due to an electrical current issue.

    One-lap pace looked very good but unclear whether that could mean a car in the second row yet. Hungary qualifying was a major disappointment after all.

    The crowd cheers when Lewis stops his car by the side of the track.

    This crowd is mega-crazy.

    Well at least it wasn't a crash they cheered Hopefully Hammy's weekend will be a bit compromised with less running. Doubt we can pounce but never say never - remember the street circuits for example.

    Such a great track. Looks very rewarding for the drivers and it shows the performance these cars are capable of. Braking distances and direction changes are insane.

    Quali is going to be important. Overtaking looks difficult.

    I think they should stop the clock for a maximum of 10-15 minutes during red flags during practice. It's a bit stupid like this.

    How many red flags will this race have? 10? 15?

    This is ridiculous.

    Disrupted session somewhat. Hard to read into that but I'd be leaning towards good single lap pace and poor race pace on the softs at least anyway. Will have to bin those early.

    Hard to say with the session being interrupted so much.

    Max and Two Chains Take-A-Knee never got a good run at it.

    Horner thinks Max would have at least matched Charles's's's's's time.

    Don't want to get too excited but we look promising enough on the softs, less so the mediums as usual, track looks quite narrow and twisty and the risk of SC intervention possibly high, so it will be essential to get decent grid positions and quali may be a bit of a lottery with traffic. Looks as if it will be dry over the weekend, but on a circuit like this, anything could happen. Good job by Charles and Carlos this afternoon.

    I'd forgotten how beautifully flowing Zandvoort is and hope our team can make the most of it this weekend!

    For me, success tomorrow would be to lock out the second row on the grid. Charles in particular has beaten the Bottler fair and square on a good few occasions this year and Carlos looks to be rather close to him just missing about a tenth.

    Qualifying can be tricky if someone gets a spin or a visit to the gravel, then red flag for sure. Boys need to set good time at the earliest. Given how narrow the track is, setting times could be difficult if there is traffic on the track.
