It may even work into his hands tomorrow so long as crazed Lecrash behaves, the RB strategists better get it right.

• With Hamilton starting from pole and Verstappen starting third, two of the top three will start using the medium tyre on the rubbered-in 'clean' side of the track: with the other Red Bull of Sergio Perez in between them on *"soft rubber" but starting on the 'dirty' side.

Great run from Checo ! Finally RB can speak about a RB race strategy for tomorrow

Mercedes , Ferrari and McLaren improved a lot ! The top 5 is very close !

But let's keep in mind that Checo is on softs , and MAX on mediums ..

Max was on softs according to broadcast.

That was in Q3, the tyre you set your fastest time on in Q2 is the one you have to start the race with.

What are you talking about? Q3 they were all on softs. No one does Q3 on mediums??

It's Q2 that determines your starting tires and that is when top teams run Mediums.

Be interesting to see how Red Bull manoeuvre Perez out of the way so Verstappen can finish ahead of him.

It's OK my friend . No problem !

By this I meant MAX and HAM on mediums can do it with one pitstop .
Checo on softs has to go with two pitstops !

Pitstops at Imola , pitlane included will take at least 30 sec. !

Guys , I was talking about the tires in the race !

Check my post above in # 1242

With Hamilton starting from pole and Verstappen starting third, two of the top three will start using the medium tyre on the rubbered-in 'clean' side of the track: with the other Red Bull of Sergio Perez in between them on *"soft rubber" but starting on the 'dirty' side.

Lets hope no issues with tyres as there was last time for Max and indeed for Checo in FP.

Yeah my friend .Let us hope so ..

As for LeCrash : Let us hope he won't use his Ferrari suicide torpedo !
As we know Imola is Ferrari's Italian home-race ..

And suddenly , out of nowhere : The W12 is a lot faster than in Bahrain ?
HAM said : The car feels really good .
BOT said : I didn't felt secured , because the car's tail was unpredictable .

I don't get it ...

Neither do I and it shows no two Pet Mercs are quite the same in places (a new 44 magic mode? where the Bulls are spot on here.
Lecrunch is a worry at the start and Gasly may be prone to an incident remembering last time which Max doesn't want to be caught up in.
