Extraordinary that they cant ensure a flawless broadcast. Even last year i think they had some problems with the timing and the new system...
Yes I'm amazed and annoyed about this as well. Someone has failed to fulfil his responsibility.

Giovinazzi almost passed in Q2, he did a mistake in last sector. Only 0.2 sec slower than Ericsson, not bad at all! I'm happy to see an Italian driver on the grid, even if it's only for one race

Gonna be a rush before the rain comes.

If it rains, i predict chaos...
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

Apparently hamilton was on used tires in Q2. Interesting.... arent these the tires to be used for the race start if it is the quickest lap?

Yeah and the problem is that it may be about to rain. Has Ham and Merc screwed this up?

I kind of like the finer resolution on lap times... but if they wanted to compare two drivers, they should overlay them...

From the graphics, it looks more like he overcooked the tires and sector two and then paid for it in sector 3.
