Agreed.

With Max there always seems to be some sort of technical error excuse rolled out very quickly. Happened at the previous race too.

He ran over the painted line on the edge of the track with his right rear and it looked like it lost traction, which spun him off and into the tyre wall.

Worlds worst video as it was filmed on a potato. He may have been losing control before the white line, but agreed - classic right foot error.

Max’s opening run in Q1 had gone smoothly and with a time of 1:29.374 he slotted into fourth place behind Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas. The Dutchman went for another attempt, however, and on the exit of Turn 2 he lost control over the kerbs on the outside of the corner. He spun and hit the barriers in Turn 3 nose first, damaging the front left suspension and his chances of a top 10 grid spo

Marko says : The Renault engine has too much power.
(OK I made that one up)

The Alonso curse lives on..... Even Hartley, who was off the pace of gasly, outqualified both mclarens. This is not going to end well for McLaren. Honda gonna be a force in the red bull cars next year I guess?

The times were very close for the top 5. That is good to see. Seems like Haas has taken a step up this year. Any worries about the Ferrari smoking so much when starting up? Nice to see Bottas outqualify Hamilton.

Lastly, pole for Vettel in that close of a session, not bad for such an "overrated" driver....

Will the Hondas hold together though?

History says it's unlikely.

STR have been running low drag here as well which has given them straight line speed. So the lap time might suggest they have a very nice chassis to get them round the rest of the lap.

Bravo, great to see.

McLaren have lot of work to do but it's waay too early for a tabloid style trashing by every man and his dog!

Been saying it ever since they announced they were dropping Honda.

Alonso is so cursed. Guarantee his Toyota craps out before halfway at le mans.

Unfortunately unlikely they will,Hartley's obviously been having issues all practice and Gasly's probably just been lucky his has held together long enough to post some decent times.
By lap 5 they both should have visited the pits..

Dont forget both Toro Rosso's have the new updated engine for this race, so it might just last. (ie they are on to ICE #2 of 3 allowed for the year.)

Has he, or are trying to excuse his lack of speed compared to GAS?

Ok accepting that, it appears the driver has even less control of the vehicle than we thought.

Throttles always run the risk of jamming but only after they've been mashed to the floor. In this case it apoears the car decided to accelerate itself!
