It does, however, happen very often that the drivers are the same but their final order in each part of qualifying is different. That happened 15 times in 2019 alone.
I don’t understand this. Doesn’t being top 10 in q2 by definition mean you are the top (only) 10 in q3 already anyway?
Yes you're right, but a driver can be in P12 in Q1 and in P9 in Q2 and then P3 in Q3.
But 15 times in 2019, the exact same cars in Q1 top 10 were the same top 10 cars in Q2. This suggests that general form from Q1 trends through to Q3, most of the time. Eliminations probably come from other reasons like mechanical and strategical error.
