F1Guy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Very well done by DiResta. Hasn't driven an F1 car in a quali session for over 3 years, and beats Ericsson. Seriously, why is Ericsson even on the grid?

That's a bit harsh, he was barely a 1/10th behind Wehrlein after all.

Wonder how the car set up is. Anyway I am hoping for a fairy tale points finish. Paul, like Ant Davidson, is one of the good, real talented guys of the sport who only lost a drive due to money.

Williams seem pretty off the pace, so Paul did a good job today. A points finish tomorrow would be brilliant but it looks like it will take some pretty heavy attrition or a strategy masterstroke for that to happen.

Paul did alright considering he hasn't driven an F1 car since 2013

Anyway, shame RBR FP pace seems to have disappeared. Ferrari 1-2 tomorrow, unless Bottas does what he did in Russia

Agree. It's also beyond belief that in this crazy age of F1 safety - that the FiA and FOM would allow a driver that has not driven the car, or an F1 car for over 3 years at that, onto the track along with all the other drivers also at full race speeds! It's quali and the race, so unlike a FP session, all drivers will be as fast as possible to beat the clock.

Surely there was a cause on safety rounds to allow Paul 10-15 minutes on track by himself before quali to familiarise himself with the car?? Or even before the race begins even?? That little time on track would give DiResta at least a small chance to get to know the car, and make it safe for him and the other drivers to be on the track together when all are at racing speeds.

We have the FiA wanting to attach a G-string to all cars because it's going to "make it safe" for the drivers, but are happy to let a driver that has never driven a 2017 car, which are the fastest F1 cars ever, on track for the first time with all the other drivers for a qualifying session! Safety??... Yea right.

What about Di Resta driving a car do you feel is 'dangerous'?

He may not have any previous experience of this year's car - but he has experience of F1, is a proven competent driver, and will also have driven the track in the past. On the track with all the other drivers, he might be expected to be a couple of seconds off the pace initially, but hardly going around slow enough that he would be a hazard.

What is more dangerous - Di Resta being a little off pace or Hamilton pushing beyond the limits?

Also you claim he hasn't driven an F1 car for over 3 years - wasn't he helping Stroll earlier this year with a 2014 car? If you're going to make claims about the lack of experience at least make them accurate!

I think he was primarily railing against the metal G-string than anything against Paul.

Read my post again. I said...

Agian, I was just saying that di Resta has not driven an F1 car at racing speeds for over 3 years with all the other drivers also at max speed.

Also, even though it has nothing to do with what I said, yes - I am well aware PDR has driven the 2014 car. He did 9 or 10 laps in the 2014 Williams earlier this year. But the 2014 car is a totally different beast to the 2017 car anyway- so your argument there is daft. And pointless. Even the best of the best F1 drivers would find it difficult after 3+ years away from racing F1.

If you're going to nitpick at someone's post, at least read the post accurately!

That was a clean start, with the Ferrari's line astern, however there was that coming together with Verstappen an Ricciardo and then my lap top crashed. Apparently Verstappen has a 10 second pit penalty.

Verstappen pits and serves his 10 second penalty. Apart from that first lap incident, he drove really well looking after his tyres.

Congrats to Vettel and congrats to Ferrari on getting a 1-2. I understand Kimi's frustration but Vettel is the championship contender.
