Stroll looked hopeless and as the commentators were saying, that car shouldn't be in battle with the Saubers.
Palmer 15th vs Hulk in 6th. That's replacement territory Jolyon.
They're all looking a bit shoddy aren't they? Vandoorne is the surprise - Alonso's good but that difference can't all be driver can it? Different engine modes?

Stroll should in theory have been better around Barcelona as that's a track he knows. Given Strolls pace you can see why Williams were on the phone to Massa when Bottas jumped ship.

Palmer struggled last year but that could have been car - he doesn't have that excuse this season. He looked a bit shell shocked after qualifying and really does appear to be on the ropes - I doubt he'll get a 3rd season in F1

Leclerc is testing for Haas because he is a Ferrari junior driver.

I think Palmer and Stroll should have more or less equal machinery as their teammates.

Not so sure about Vandoorne, considering the problematic Honda engines.
Since even Honda themselves seem to have no cue why it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, it's hard to tell whatever performance difference is caused by driver, car or engine.

I think we can only judge Stoffel once Honda has its stuff sorted.

Driving into Massa was very stupid, though.

Stroll has disappointed so far. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, and he's certainly had some bad luck, but he's not showing well against Massa.

Ocon, when will his run end? He's on a real roll

Wehrlein has really shown he's a potential star of the future, with another good drive to 7th on the road

Magnussen was doing so well till he threw it all away with that contact with Kyvat

To me experience counts in these new cars, which is why Stoffel, Jolyon and Lance are someway off their teammates. But Stoffel doing a Schumacher Jerez on Massa was silly

To be fair, Vandoorne had a faster best lap at the time of his (self-created) retirement than Alonso did. Alonso improved his lap times at the very end with low fuel, fresh soft tires and possibly higher engine modes. Alonso was marginally faster in the race, but the difference in fastest laps is misleading.
