Good session...
I think those 200m time markers on the feed are a bit anti-climatic... :D You are always aware how someone is going to end. Before you atleast had anticipation....

Not bad effort by Hamilton, Bottas and Vettel i feel. Small mistake by either and it would have been pole by someone else.

Pitty about Dan.
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

Red Bull big disappointment imho.

So last years Mercedes would have qualified 5th with a 1.23.837.

A little disappointing.

They should remove that time markers for the last sector for viewers at least.
Always find the gap then use it.

Indeed. Would be interesting to know where the new cars are slower than the 2016 ones. Must be quite significant on the straights....?

Wow, Bottas and Hamilton not really giving a sh!t about each other when they were next to each other !

It's fascinating how much you can glean from body language alone. They looked like they weren't getting along well at all.

According to FIA document 18, Kimi took a new ES and CE before qualifying.
So does that mean a starting grid penalty?
