    Also most of the paddock deployables and motorhomes didn't go back to the uk, they went from imola to a port and straight on to turkey [based on what Kravitz was saying].

    Are hard road tyres going that slowly really going to do much? For once there's a real challenge for them, let's see who can overcome it rather than trying to remove it.

    Lance Stroll, Lance f##kmothering Stroll is on pole position.

    What the actual.

    What is it about Lance that he's useless 99% of the time, then every so often he pulls a Godlike performance out of his arse? Where do they come from? Do they feed him extra Weetabix or something?

    Well that was, unexpected.

    I think that's harsh. The money/status of his father much it must've help enormously to get where he was, now I often think people treat him differently and more harshly than if he was purely judged on his own merit. Perez is experienced and highly rated, and Stroll generally doing fine against him on unexceptional weekends.
    He clearly has a load of talent to do something like today. He's by no means some rando with dad's money.

    Stroll on Pole, I havent felt this way since Pastard Maldonado won. Guess points arent awarded on the Saturday so we will see.
    I still predict he will balls up the start and get chewed up by the midfield.

    Even if Stroll doesn't mess up the start... Max will be absolutely desperate to get past Stroll asap as he must capitalise on every second Lewis is stuck in traffic to secure the free win, so first couple turns could well end up with Stroll exploring the gravel.

    Agreed, Max and Stroll have history thos season. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt that he wont bring out the safety car doing something completely stupid.

    I'm on the lunatic fringe that doesn't want a wet race every race as we may as well just roll a d20 at the start. I want to see the best team rewarded.

    Given Lando's previous comments he apologised for i thought this was funny

    Mclaren PR person orders Lando to say something nice, or there's no gaming before bed.

    Making the drivers roll D20 at the start is brilliant idea.
