And suddenly LeCrash was the greatest upcoming talent in F1 ! LMFAO
LEC routinely gets more out of the Ferrari than his 4-time WDC teammate. Oh, wait, that's because of cheating again. Mea culpa.

LeCrash and SEB are not driving with the same machinery.
SEB had to drive the half of the season with a chassis from WWII .Later they saw SEB's chassis had defects ?!?!
SEB is been and still is sabotaged .
The damn Italian MAF ....

I wouldn't trust LeCrash and Binotto for a sec.
SEB will (hopefully) speak when this season is over ...

Of course the 11 is seemingly superior in conjunction with a few additional extras to manage it being quicker when needed. Russell said that the times were deceiving and could change tomorrow with Max's speed on the straights.

Well well just seen that Wolff is not happy and is worried that the long run pace of the 16 will be better..that runs with what Russell was saying that his pace was 'deceiving'.

Can't believe what's happening to BOT,locking up and going off the track.. just thinking that he could be over worried about covid with his teammate affected.
BOT isn't worried about HAM . F1 is like a war to survive .

Toto just said : HAM isn't follow the race ,isn't watching the race .
HAM is too sick and in his bed ...It's really bad luck .

It would be nice if Red Bull would give Albon the same machinery as Verstappen. Maybe he could find pace then.

I wonder how HAM caught it, slipped up somewhere with all the ppl he meets, we all read that some catch it easier than others, if he isn't even watching race then it must be bad for him and wish him a speedy recovery.
I had a blood test two weeks ago and no issues,I'll be asking doctor what blood group I am.

Albon can not drive the RB16 with such a low downforce ( less wing ) to get a higher top speed .
No one can do this better than MAX , that's why MAX is faster in combo with his driver skills .
That's why MAX complains a lot regarding the lack of grip .
Of course the RB16 remains the underdog and the Merc W11 the fastest car of the decade .

Evidence ? How many times Albon crashed during FP's and QF with less of wing , just to be faster ..

Last week !

O + (O positive) is the best blood type you can have . It has something to do with our immune system response .

I have O + and I had Kawasaki , wich is one of the 12 COVID mutations .
Kawasaki tested twice negative . My blood sample was also negative .
It's now 5-6 weeks ago , and still feel hammered by this beast ...
Don't find the words to describe the pain in my stomach and intestines from Kawasaki !
MKSixer got also Kawasaki . But he said he was feeling better now .

Hope HAM didn't got the mutation with high fever . This means the beast attacks your lungs ..
The rest we know . The thing is as I said like a minefield !

Feel sorry for HAM ....

Well my friend I hope I have the same blood type as you to stave off any covid risk.
Having had a BCG injection (against tb) with booster when I was going to school is said to offer some resistance to this pandemic curse.

Before we get too excited, Bottas did have the fastest lap in Fp2 (IIRC) by 2 tenths but had it disallowed due track limits.
So qualifying will be interesting to see how Russell is shaping up against Bottas.
Being over 6 foot is causing some fit and comfort problems for Russell..even to having to wear boots one size smaller. Might make for a tough race.

Think it will be MAX or this great guy ...But let us keep in mind that MAX remains the underdog in the slower RB16 !
Even if BOT hits the pole . In the race he will be nowhere , because racecraft is really required on this track ...
One mistake on this track , and it is game over in no time !
In short : It can be a mess !

The Sakhir outer lay-out (the oval) is no joke , one lap is only +/- 54 sec.
The driver who can handle the pressure in combination with racecraft and outstanding tyre management will win this race .
A slower car with luck on his side , can win this race as well...
Of course the winner has to get luck on his side . Because this little oval circuit is very dangerous !

That's for sure mate on this track . But the QF "doesn't mean much"

Why is that ?

The Sakhire outer Lay-out (the oval) requires "PURE RACECRAFT"

He's either hit a wall short of Renault, McLaren, AlphaTauri performance, or he's driving to a limit and not beyond.

Look forward to finding out in an hour. Hope he'll let it rip. Doesn't look like an easy track for passing so he should.

Just from Toto Wolff in his latest "SKY DEUTSCHLAND" interview :

We/I fear MAX ! MAX should never be underestimated !!!
Russell did a great job during the FP's , actually better than we expected ...

The Latest from MAX :

Great performance by Russell in the W11 !
I know that feeling ,it feels fantastic ! I got that feeling as well , when I stepped from my old Toro-Rosso in the Red Bull car ...

Hope that everyone remains safe on this crazy track..
