Qualifying: Haas, Renault, McLaren faster than RBR ?!

Bottas, Grosjean, Leclerc, Hulkenberg, Ricciardo, Norris faster than Verstappen ?!

(You've forgotten that Sainz is also faster than Verstappen in the McLaren with his Renault engine. =P~ )

Can you explain this?

Do you know that there are new rules about burning oil or using double deposit in classification?

We are no longer in 2018 friend!

At least try to be sensible. Normally any predictions to a tenth are silly, but this one's reaching even by those standards.

I have seen worse here, like so and so will crash and so and so will have an engine failure and so and so will fly to the moon. Start of the season, full of unknowns and if not now, when will you have your wild predictions? Last race of the season when you pretty much know who the champion is OR which car is the fastest? The usual boring stuff like Vettel will steer into Hamilton into Hamilton, Vettel's red mist, Hamilton's new clothes line and all that usual in season banters are boring.

On a serious note, when was the last time Red Bull came up with a super car off the box to start a new season? I only remember 2011 and no other season.
Why should their stakes be high for a new season, especially when they are starting a new partnership with a PU manufacturer, whose performance credibility is almost nil in the hybrid era and whose reliability is still a big question mark?
Let them earn a place together and the predictions will change accordingly.

This is not prediction. This is an "I wish it was". I won't bait this post for the places in the top 2. But Mclaren 5th? And Red Bull a full second from the pole?

Who cares? is his prediction going to spoil your actual race? or is it going to change the actual result? No!...so stop this stupidity

Because Red Bull had a great advantage in 2018 with respect to the midfield. It's not about the engine.
That advantage that Red Bull had in 2018 will not disappear "miraculously".
But I respect your comment.

The flood of predictions and wish lists that occupy the race threads are just childish narcissistic drivel. They are at very best a slight annoyance while scrolling through looking for something actually worth reading. :wink:

Certainly not worth arguing over.

Here, let's argue about the weather instead:

Because they are upset and don't like the order he gave.

I predict we will see a lot of fan crying this year and the mods will get frazzled, specially if the season pans out the way i think it will.
