It's Max's first ever pole at Spa and what a way to do it! Checo down in 7th but the good news is rammer Bot gets pushed to 13th with his grid penalty so he can play his havoc there in midfield. Shame that Ham still got 3rd with Vettel deserving that spot.

I hope they put George in a Mercedes soon. Max did a good job on the P1. Vettel was awesome.

Think Merc would make the move this season if the cars weren't due for such an overhaul.

Yes, props to Seb. Problem is race control can't know when someone is radioing for competitive advantage or providing an honest assessment. So much constant bs over the radio channels.

I wasn't so much referring to the radio chatter. Vettel checking in on Norris was cool to see.

Great Quali!

Max on pole. Evolving track did it for him. Russell was on FIRE!! Amazing Job.

HAM in strong position for a pass at the end of the Kemmel straight. as Philippe stated...Points are given on Sunday.

Right my friend . As you guys said : MAX can't drive on a wet track .
Probably that's why MAX took the pole in the crazy rain ...

Of course tomorrow it really matters . But MAX knows that as well !
And let's keep in mind , HAM has to pass the Russell boy first ...

As for next weekend at Zandvoort the weather forecast is dry and sunny with 23C .

Let's hope Max and Checo can deliver a 'Rocket' to the rammer cheats tomorrow oh and...

So much for the rumors of him not wanting to be the '2nd driver.' Hopefully he's accepted where he stands in the F1 drivers food chain, unfortunately

again with almost with full speed without even having a chance to slow down a crash happened.. i stated before.. run off area needs to be widen at least like 7-8 times than now.. if some tree needs to be chopped off, its sad but you can plant trees again but you cant plant lives...

so glad Norris is ok.. i hope his elbow wont be a problem for him tomorrow...

superb job from Russell and great timing from his team to put on inters even if they didnt do it on purpose.. rain the ultimate equalizer..

well done to Max and Red Bull as well.. Bottas was lost but tomorrow is the race day and starting 3rd for Lewis is not at all.. Russell will be on full boost..

tomorrow's start ll be very interesting.. i hope we wont see any crashes...

I'm pretty sure , he's very grateful to stand on MAX's side .
Too bad , Red Bull can't play him out as part from a race strategy ...

Definitely, such a decent gesture. And he was right about the conditions. His warning should have been heeded by race control. Astute, then outraged about the crash, concerned for his fellow driver, everything you'd want out of an old world champion under the circumstances.

Toto won't give the Russell boy the second Merc seat .
Because HAM wants a team mate who he can beat in a heartbeat...#LapDog !
Mate I agree , as you said It's just HAM's Bull5H1T !!!

Too bad for Kimi . I'm so sorry mate . He's done ...
