    You need to improve you post quality. These are low quality, rookie posts.

    Lec starting behind Mclaren. He will finish behind Perez at best.

    I would still keep Leclerc IMO.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Sainz > Leclerc when it matters ? Like in 2022 when we have race winning cars and Sainz was struggling massively ?

    LEC: "I lost the feeling with the car already halfway through FP3, it just got worse in Qualifying and I couldn't maximise the result. Yesterday the car felt very good on the front, but this morning in FP3 already that feeling was gone. I tried something a bit extreme, adding more flap during Qualifying, but it was maybe too aggressive of a choice because the car ended up feeling really bad in the last run. Maybe I should have settled for P3, but I just wanted to try to get the feeling back."

    Sainz still feeling unwell beats Charles? What? What is CL doing?

    Wishful thinking.

    Go ahead and believe all the hype stories coming out of the RedBull camp regarding the drama of unknown texts from unknown sources about Horner. The media have so call stories to sell or more social media views.

    Newey, and family, is staying with RedBull to include Horner.

    Exactly! LH move to Ferrari is not getting the best possible driver. How I see it, is that LH is going to be very high bargain chip for Ferrari to get, as you said AN and other high value tech people. Also to bring back power to Ferrari as they had it during Todt, Brawn Schumacher era.

    Gasly gets a reprimand for crossing the white line.

    What do you think Perez is going to get a penalty for again?

    Yup itís seems the current issue for Ferrari.

    Either its prep lap or build to Q3 isnít going well.

    All hope for a win is over , the only time Charles's car is okay is Saudi when Sainz doesn't there
    This is very disappointing from Ferrari. We start with a hooked up car on Friday and we end quali with a car that is difficult to drive!

    Getting rid of Carlos for Lewis will never make sense. How do supposedly clever people make a decision like this?

    As for Carlos vs Charles, it's absolutely crazy that Carlos came from the operating bench to beat Charles. Charles is my favourite but I must admit, his star has been growing dimmer and dimmer with each passing season. We've been hopeful that he will mature into a great driver but it's honestly taking much longer than it should. He's very talented but he's not showing signs of greatness. Carlos is proving to be the more mature and dependable driver of the two.

    Nice try. RedBull already did an investigation into the matter. The Thai family owning 51% of RedBull give their 100% support of Horner. It's shut and closed. The "victim" has been let go or more bluntly fired.

    And I think LEC is not gonna have good time tommorow , McLaren pace is only 0.1 sec slower than us and that make overtaking them a big problem

    This argument still doesn't make sense to me.

    The way Red Bull have handled this situation and treated the victim is so tragic, I have no words.

    I think RedBull did their due diligence into the matter and found nothing to arbitrarily connect Honer with these alleged text messages coming from an unknown source....and rightfully so that the victim should have been fired from the organization.

    Fred Vasseur's reaction to
    @SkySportF1
    after qualifying in Melbourne.

    - "The goal was to take pole position and the conditions were right for our approach. Something was missing in Q3, but I want to be optimistic for tomorrow's race thanks to what we showed in the long runs."

    - "I think there is still a gap with Red Bull, but if we want to try to catch up with them, there is no other way than to push to the extreme. Charles tried and we cannot not criticize him for that."

    - "It will be crucial not to destroy the tires in the first few laps, otherwise the overall performance will inevitably be affected during the race. In free practice we managed to minimize the graining problem and I hope we can make some progress even tomorrow. Sunday will be long and we will have to think exclusively about our action plan."

    Look at the greater picture... Sometimes it needs time. For example, JT come to Ferrari in 1993 and won only in 2000.

    Charles Leclerc's reaction to @SkySportF1 after his P5 in qualifying in Melbourne.

    - "We perhaps underestimated the power of the Red Bull during qualifying and FP3. So pole would have been difficult, but I didn't exploit the car to the maximum, that's clear. I didn't do a good job in FP3 and I lost the feeling with the car. But I still managed to get a lap in and I was confident that that feeling would come back in qualifying. Instead, I I lost even more."

    - "The best thing we can do now is focus on tomorrow and hope that the race pace allows us to regain our position. Yesterday the front was very good, this morning we lost it a little and in qualifying a lot more. In the last run I was very aggressive with the front flap, but we probably went in the wrong direction. I wanted to try, but in hindsight I probably should have stuck with the third place and stay in front. I wanted to try something, but I was too aggressive."

    - "There are four DRS zones, so tomorrow everything is possible. We will see, but the race pace is not bad, so the podium is always the goal. In reality, victory is difficult to achieve, even in starting second as Carlos will. I think Red Bull's pace is better than ours, barring a surprise tomorrow."

    Carlos Sainz's reaction in the media after his P2 in qualifying in Melbourne.

    - "It's been a really tough few weeks. I even stayed in bed for a few days, but in the end I managed to be there and today I'm even on the front lines. When I saw that I was in the first positions in qualifying, I almost didn't believe it, it was really hard, but I'm really very satisfied and happy to fight the Red Bulls."

    - “At the start yesterday I was a bit rusty, but then I managed to get some speed back and get my rhythm back and I feel really good in the car.”

    - "I'm not going to lie, I'm not really in perfect condition when I'm riding, but I think I can do the whole race. And as long as I can do it, without too much pain... It's It's clear that it's difficult, uncomfortable, but I'm not in too much pain and I'm going to push as much as I can."
