Verstappen's s1 ans s2 times look good, his s3 fell off a bit, either by choice or due to traffic.

lag was fine for me, and knowing more about how this works than most people, I'd bet the issue isn't with the streaming, but who ever was doing the live shooting/directing/editing/cutting.

I mean, the cdn they are using isn't some random bottom of the barrel company.

Great to see Leclerc stepping right into the sharp end no problem. That's a great sign. I think the pair of Ferrari's will be equally quick to each other that should be troublesome with Red Bull and Merc who have one driver that is clearly faster than the other.

Could Honda loss in s3 be pu related--meaning limited? Or chassis? Both?

Sector 3 is slow tighter corners, would expect it to be RB's strength. Maybe this is a sign of more fuel however Hamilton just some impressive laps on fp2. Anyone know how much better his two purple sectors were just now as he didn't go quicker in sector 3 and only improvemed marginally, but the ease in which he was able to improve is impressive. Big gap to verstappen now and gasly just doesn't look at the races.

This Honda PU looks good. Hope it has reliability


Does anyone here have the long run lap time/count of all teams?

Interesting to hear that Ric was doing some of Hulks testing in FP1 as Hulk had issues. Maybe explains why he was off the pace compared to Hulk.
