again and again out of nowhere performance from Lewis.. well done again and again!

tomorrow the race will be interesting..

unlucky for Norris he was extracting every drop of performance of that McLaren.. i was waiting for this season to see McLarens like this again.. Lando could have started on P3 tomorrow but such an unlucky moment for him.. but tomorrow both McLarens will be strong.. and i guess Ric is still not comfortable in his car.. wasnt expecting that but he ll recover im sure..

well done to Checo!!!
only his 2nd race in Red Bull he outqualifies Max.. such a great come back after a low Q2 session well done!

Alonso.. ouch.. Ocon was almost like 0.5s faster than Alonso.. i dont think he can handle few more results like this..

and Leclerc..
again and again this guy carried his car to the best place ever possible.. while Sainz knocked out he was quite far off.. such a golden talent he is..

tomorrow a lot of cars will start on soft tires.. Perez will try to overtake Ham before first corner.. i hope it wont get messy.. and since Bottas is behind as well.. tomorrow's race will be very interesting!

Checo! Great qualifying session.

Ferrari better get their act together next year. Would love to see what Charles could do in a competitive car.

If McLaren keeps up development, Norris might win a race this year!

The quali time differentials all the way down to 8th are incredibly close.
Really looking forward to the race tomorrow, should be a good one.

Signing PER was a great move for RB. He will show Max what it means to drive quick and consistently in more than one race this year.

Sadly I don't..Red Bull will give Perez a different strategy that will put Verstappen ahead.

One of the reasons I Really appreciate Lando...takes ownership, gutted when he makes a mistake.

Unlike some other drivers who always have an excuse...

You Sir, win The Internet today. Congratulations!!!

This puts paid to the following:

PER will never out qualify VER.
It will take him 4 or 5 races to get to the point where he is even close to VER.
Once PER is comfortable with the car he will still be at least 0.250 behind VER at all times.

When a driver has a propaganda machine without any results to back it up and starts believing his own press, this is what occurs. The worse part about this for VER is that PER has superior race pace and traffic skills without demolishing his tires.

As I stated last year, VER is in for a very hard time and may be exposed.

Great post, my friend!!
I hope you are well!!

Cheers-mk

Write it down! HAM will win the 2021 drivers championship! Even IF RB is faster than MB. PER will steal enough points away from VER. BOT is worthless and Ferrari is a non-factor. HAM will then retire in 2022 because of the unknown. HAM is too chicken to risk his reputation on an unknown car. Norris or Russell will move to MB and continue to crush BOT because he is worthless. That's my word....like it and like liking it!!!!!!!
