Well that was an interesting Q1. Perez lucky that Leclerc is being dogshit too or he’d have been out.

Like the look of this grid for tomorrow. Looks like a good battle for 2nd and 3rd.

Well  that was fairly unpredictable anyway other than the obvious pole position.

Max backed out of his final lap, so the gaps probably arent a true reflection but that is an interesting grid, to say the least

Interesting qualifying ….Hamilton should have been second, he had the pace, just didn’t hook it allup.

Not surprised. The one on Sainz (I think) in the final corner was pretty dangerous. Moved from off the racing line onto it as Sainz was steaming round.

people always go on about this circuit being a good measure of how good a car is, and if that's true merc can be very pleased.

curious how leclerc has been just a bit shite both yesterday and today too.

Trouble is, that Mercedes were quick here last year too. The track suits their car

I thought that was a decent race. as a viewer you just have to ignore verstappen, presume he'll win and watch what goes on behind him.

Something was definitely going on with the car in my opinion.  Even Brundle was saying that it looked an absolute handful in the race.  Idiotic "Leclerc is dogshit" comments aside, you don't go from being on pole and 4/10ths up on your teammate to 6/10ths down and out in Q1 at the same circuit from one season to the next unless there's an issue.  Whatever else people may say about Leclerc, anybody who thinks that he doesn't have good one lap (quali) pace is frankly a moron.

In terms of Catalunya being a measure of how good a car is, I don't wish to sound condescending, but I think that you've perhaps got that backwards.  It's more that teams know more how their car will perform given their strengths and weaknesses at that particular circuit given the amount of testing done there. 

I share your view in the ignoring Verstappen thing, but I do really miss the drama of 2021.

nah it's always been thought of as a good test of a car's capabilities. fuck knows if that's still the case, my info there could well be quite a few years old which wouldn't surprise me.

2021 had hamilton and verstappen swapping wins but they weren't exactly racing each other on track every week. it was a dramatic title race without being actually all that dramatic on track, except the ending obviously.

fair enough. might be because unless someone had much fresher tyres or something I never felt like an actual overtake was all that likely that season up front. they just drove around a few car lengths behind each other while croft got all excited saying thing like "now is X close enough to make a move?.............no he's not"

24 hours of Le Mans starts in about 20 minutes for anyone wanting some racing (or if you're looking to avoid the CL final). The hypercar class should be compelling with Ferrari on pole; Toyota and Porsche will be chasing them down.

NASCAR also has an entry in Garage 56 with Jenson Button, Jimmie Johnson, and Mike Rockenfeller driving

this is the most interesting in years because it's not just a forgone conclusion that toyota will win.

Yeah, Toyota got hit hard by balance of performance adjustments. They can still win but it won't be easy, for once.
