    My view is clear, I wouldn't have agreed to Hamilton getting Russell's car, just like I'm not agreeing with today's decision. Penalizing Sargeant for Albon's crash is both unfair and unsporting.

    So at the end of the day who drives what, how etc is at the absolute discression of the teams.
    Which means that if Merc had chosen to give Lewis the car (even tho Lewis at this stage is a turtle) , that would be their right.
    Too early in the season for this. There are so many races left that this doesn't really make a lot of sense.
    If it was late in the season and they needed points to leap frog another team, then sure, it makes sense.
    Now it's just bad blood between teams and drivers.

    Sainz's long runs is 0.5-1s a lap faster than Red Bull, it's too good to be true

    i think if Charles is going to win this race, he's going to have to drive every lap all out, like he did in 2022 when each lap was the fastest lap. He's capable of doing it. He drove like that in France 2022 though and put it in the wall.

    that's the advantage Red Bull have, Max doesn't have to push it... yet... win one, get some updates, and then we'll see

    But isn't Sargeant part of the team as well? Why penalize him for his teammate's costly mistake? Again, I would've understood why Williams did what they did, if they are actually fast enough for points. But that's not the case.

    Different fuel load. But I saw graining on Max's left front during the long runs, so Red Bull may encounter some tyre problems here.

    By the looks of FP1/FP2/FP3, Ferrari is up there. They have a good chance for pole & race win.

    Interestingly there some left front tyre graining on RB20 in FP3 during race runs. May be they are trying different set up.

    In anyways, track temp conditions will be different (similar to FP2) in today’s quali which will improve grip level.

    good, because this is a race where red flags and safety cars are likely, it's a necessity really
