Alpine were impressive in P2.... 2 cars in the top 6 is a feat that, other than Alpine only Mercedes could manage.

And they did it on medium tyres from what I can tell.

Now they need to do it on qualy and raceday....

Excellent intro as ever.


With qualifying started, can Hamilton take his 100th pole?

Well done. I wonder how much longer Bottas is allowed to try to become WC now the fight with Verstappen has became much closer for Hamilton.

Perfect response by Bottas after Imola. Outpacing them all to take pole. Such a shame track limits cost Max pole

Vettel finally makes it into Q1, although what happened between him and Stroll in Q1? Also, Russell so near to Q1. That Merc seat can’t come soon enough

As long as he can make the case for himself i would think.

Without assigning any blame, last race was a set back to his cause both in terms of points and repair costs which could end up coming out of his side of the garage but pole and what he can do with it leave him with everything still left to play for.

While i dont belive VB is the better driver i do believe Merc want and need LH to win this year. Bottas' mistakes/errors/whatevers are magnified.

And lewis hasent even started messing with him yet.

The underdog aspect for Bottas has me rooting for him a bit i must admit.

For as long as he is competitive.

So far this year it’s not been a problem though....first he has to get infront of hamilton.

Same can be said for Perez and Max.....

I suspect team orders WILL come into it at some point this year but both teams are as likely to use them to benefit their lead driver

Bottas needs to win this race, quite badly in my opinion. If he fluffs the start and then falls down the order, the demons are going to be visiting him.....

It seems that Lewis was caught out by Bottas' choice of when to go - and Max benefits on the restart.

Green flag and Verstappen takes second spot from Hamilton. Norris up to 4th.

Pre-show, there was mention of how Lewis wanted to feel the experience of being 'the hunted'. It didn't last long, but he is back up into 2nd.
