I'm pretty sure Max will make quick work of Gasly in the race, the pace gap is that big between them. I'm all for giving an inexperienced F1 driver time to adapt, but Gasly is in my opinion on the boarder of ending his F1 career. Progress isn't good enough. He's basically the next Vandoorne: highly successfull pre-Formula 1 but ultimately exposed and beaten by a superior driver. Incidentely the more I see Verstappen drive, the more I think of Alonso in his prime. The only thing Max and RB still have to sort are the race starts.
Should be good fun today, although a podium is surely out of the question.
Max will most probably be one of the highlights of the race, will be very interesting to watch him go or at least try to go through the field.
If he does choose to start on Hards, it will be difficult in the first few laps, since he could lose some positions at the start due to the grip difference with those on Mediums or Softs.
