    Bottas had faster times deleted. He's a good 0.1-0.15 faster over a qualiy lap.
    Russell seems to be loosing a lot of time in sector 1, mainly the breaking zone for the first corner amd having problems with understeer and tyre management.
    He even admitted himself that bottas has him over a qualy lap and on race pace Verstappen will be a threat.

    He's performed well but at this point in the season he will not topple Bottas, provided Bottas has a clean race. I expect ottas on Pole and provided Russell gets a good start and qualifies second he might be able to get second in the race. In all honesty I can see him finishing third with everything going well.

    A track with basically 7 corners if you call some of them that, not surprised it’s so close.

    1 mistake could see anyone out in Q1

    Tbh Aitken is just showing how utterly mediocre latifi is.

    Yes Latifi out-did him [just], but latifi's driven that car all year. Aitken hasn't even driven it a whole weekend yet.

    Yea Latifi has been very poor all year. His race pace has been good however but still overall he doesnt look good enough to have ever been promoted in the first place

    Completely different track layout compared to usual and Lewis absent?

    No worries... The front row still looks the same as as it almost always has since 2014.

    0.056s between p1 and p3 is nuts, even on a short lap like that.

    Red bull has the far superior race pace looking at the sims too, race could be interesting as Russel and Bottas both better on a Saturday than a Sunday

    my guess verstappen wins easily tomorrow.

    Max/Russell collide turn 1, bottas gets yet another random puncture and Leclerc wins, though no-one can believe or explain how.

    Grosjean ruled out of Abu Dhabi by F1 medical team, not that it's a huge surprise or anything.

    Sprogmacher wins F2 championship, although he had a damn good go at losing it.

    Sounds like Mazepin had an even bigger go at imploding. With defending like that Haas will be picking up where they left off with Grosjean and Magnussen
