Well my hopes of a slippery fast Red Bull have gone down the toilet.

Hopefully they can pull something out in Q3 but I doubt it.

The graphic is wrong, or the team made a mistake?

The graphic FOM are showing is wrong apparently, he was on a new set.

Ricciardo nooooooooooo
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

1 Ham 2 Vet 3 Bot. Now we can see if Mercedes will struggle to follow with that intricate aero.

Depends on the start, or if they can get another dry lap in.

Ham better in all 3 sectors and I wonder if this delay will allow the rain to come in.

According to FIA document 18, Kimi took a new ES and CE before qualifying.
