That pole lap was a thing of great beauty. Magnificent!! The class of the man is undeniable.
I'm sure the Merc was in party mode at that point but it's such a finite skill to feather the throttle and get the electronic diff in the right settings to limit wheel spin all while it's pouring with hardly any visibility.

Take Qualifying with a pinch of salt. Some teams may have run a wet setup yesterday.

Future Ferrari driver, so we will take it. Lol
Doesn't matter. The entire grid is possibly a future Ferrari driver. It was McLaren engineering, not Ferrari engineering that got him to third place on the the grid.

Just like 2016 was, and 2017, and 2018, then 2019 was, and 2020 was. 2021 isn't going to be it either
Yes look at Liverpool...
1990,91,92,93,94,95,96,97,98,99,2000,01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,2010,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19

Finally in 2020, they won it. I believe man!

I think they look a lot better than the high-profile tyres.
I don't care much for how tyres look. Pirelli is doing it to closer align F1 tyre styling with road tyres.

To me the main benefit is that lower prfile tyres should discourage curb climbing.

So after a horrible start to F1tv pro last weekend and missing the first 21 laps they have apologised for the cockup and extended my subscription for a another 6 days, hope I can at least witness the start of this race.

Alonso was suppose to take Ferrari back to their winning ways. Seb beat him a few times, even if it was just by one point (when the cars were closer together). Alonso eventually left. Seb was suppose to bring the championships, the Merc's thrashed him and pretty much everyone else. The biggest threat to Mercedes this weekend is Max, and if he has electrical issues again it will just be yet another Mercedes 1 - 2. Last weekend RB was the only team that took the fight to the Mercs with the help of a safety car. LeClerc didn't deserve to see or touch that podium, he just got lucky with the better cars that retired in front of him.

Again, Charles kept his head, drove a flawless race, and you cant take the podium away from him, just because others retired. His car was slow, but at least it maintained its reliability, and finished the race. End of the day, if your car maintains reliability, and things go your way, you get points, and you get podiums.

If memory serves me right, Lewis Hamilton got lucky so many times, with the help of safety cars and retirements etc, so thats part of the game
