Q1 is red flagged with 11 minutes to go, as Stroll goes off into the wall on the start/finish strait.

Edit: This red flag is lasting a long time.

Bottas takes pole, followed by Hamilton, Verstappen and Perez. Gasly, Sainz, Ricciardo, Leclerc, Tsunoda and Norris make up the rest of the top ten places.

Looks like Verstappen will have his work cut out.

Since he lost his Mercedes drive, Bottas seems to be in the best form he has been in for some time. Certainly he has not been this good since 2019. I wonder if Bottas would have been stronger in the past had he not always been fighting for his future, as he has always struck me as a driver who struggles when under pressure. Clearly bringing in Russell is the right move as Russell has far more potential than Bottas, but maybe Mercedes should have given Valtteri longer contracts in the past. Or perhaps it would have made no difference.

Also, that was Valtteri's 19th pole position in Formula 1. He takes the record from Rene Arnoux for most pole positions without a championship.

It's a fair point. There are drivers who thrive under that kind of threat and those who would benefit from a bit more stability. good job by Bottas and very impressive by both Mercedes to pull back that pace on Red Bull. A lack of class displayed by Verstappen on the radio. When he called Tsunoda a stupid idiot, it wasn't clear if he was calling Tsunoda that, Pérez or perhaps even himself.

Me too on that. I think the media pressure (even though he says he doesn't listen to or read it) and the constant will I? wont I? have a place next year has done him no favors. He operates best when he has no exterior intrusions and can focus entirely on what he is paid to do. Having everything bubbling away in a cauldron of flux does not give him the temperature he works best under.

Hard to believe this is the first Merc front row lockout all year. Great lap by Bottas, he's been driving better since he's been given the boot. Shame for RBR that Tsunoda ruined the lap for both it's drivers.

Quite a big one from Stroll at the beginning of the session

They got a front row in Portimao when Bottas was on pole, and at Hungary with Hamilton on pole. (And also a front row in Italy )

Did Yuki ruin their laps? Think Checo made a right horlicks if it to be honest!!

'Stupid idiot' is Max's fave quote it seems!

Opinion seems to be that Yuki moved out of the Red Bull's way, but Perez distracted himself and just ran wide.....Perez certainly didn't do himself any favours....

Wouldn't be so sure this time! 60-hour working weeks have just killed my forum time recently.

Thanks! Athens and Santorini - Athens is a nice and affordable city to visit. Fairly conventional modern European city, but friendly. Great ancient city, of course. Santorini's decent enough - portrayed as amazing on Instagram - but small and more a place to relax than explore.
