The numbers behind the 6-0 qualifying battle. I think there are teams where the battle looks worse for one driver, but I didn't check... let me know if you want to have a specific team checked for comparison
If you don´t mind I´d love to see Renault drivers compared. I know Sainz has improved a lot in last races in this regard, but it would be nice to see the numbers :D

You can post it in Renault Team thread if you will

Clarification for those who didn't follow the McLaren thread: this a comparison of qualifying times between team mates, in the last session they both participated in. A negative number means Sainz beat Hülkenberg that weekend, and vice versa.

Opinions about the team order?

As a spanish it was painful, specially considering it was Monaco and track position is everything. But he was suffering with the tires so much...

I´d agree with it but the track makes me doubtful, Renault finished 8-10 when they were 8-9 before the TO, and since it was Monaco letting him by so he can attack some other car in front was not the case, it was just a matter of switching positions

Do you think they could have kept 8-9? I´m sure Nico could have kept Max behind much easier than Carlos, but this does not mean it would have been possible...


What are your thoughts?
It was painful for Carlos but as he said the problem was the strategy and tyres. Therefore he didnt have a big problem to let Nico pass, he was being very slow and this could have damaged team´s result.

So Martin Brundle opens the uk coverage of P1 in front of the Redbull garage stating that he has heard rumours the new Renault engine is worth up to an additional 40bhp!! I hope he didn’t hear that in a bar :wtf:

This was also quoted on Dutch coverage 5 minutes ago. I wonder whether this is just some kind of PR gibberish or actually real... #-o

This is interesting, I always thought Cyril would be glad to see the back of Red Bull.

I'm not surprised, Renault know full well their team and Maclaren are not going to be front running teams in the next couple of years and RedBull are their only team competing for wins.
The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

We should not take Cyril's words seriously. He is constantly nonsense, contradicts himself.

Pretty good showing today. Currently forth in the constructors championship. Was anyone expecting this? These asphalt colored cars blending in pretty well whilst racking up the points.

Personally I was expecting this, the car is better than last year and with two great drivers scoring points almost in every race the fourth position is a realitic target.

2 days ago: "we want you, we can win world championship together"

2 days later: "we will withdraw you"

This guy is a joke.

It always sounds better to say you quit than to tell people you were fired.
