    Gearbox change for Hamilton. He will start from the back. Things are getting interesting

    Vettel is already on his 4th turbocharger this weekend. It's going to be an interesting season.

    Gear box failure and now a front brake exploding in FP3. I have a feeling this isn't Lewis's weekend.

    All they need for the race is one used set of Ultrasoft and one new set of Supersoft so that leaves plenty for qualy. Why did anyone bring any Softs?

    Well they are required to have at least one set of softs available during the race...

    It was smart thinking by Mercedes to send Hamilton out on SuperSofts in Q2; with a 5 place drop he was bound to have at least one driver who is slightly off the pace on front of him. As it is he also has Grosjean and Perez to deal with, but he will have clear air for several laps after the first round of pit stops on a set of tyres which should still be quite fast and then he goes onto a set of tyres which should make him the fastest driver on the circuit.

    It must have been tempting for Ferrari to send out Vettel on the SuperSofts to ensure that he never gets that clean air; the tactics of the leader are often dictated by the man behind him. Had I been in charge I would definitely have tried it.

    apparantly bottas lap of 1:04.2 is the shortest polelap for 27 years, after nigel Mansell 1:04.4 at 1990 French gp at paul ricard (about month before I was born :whistle:) I was trying to get a youtube clip of it but I couldn't find one

    & also the rate of the progress. weirlein qualified dead last but 8 tenths quicker than the dominant Mercedes pole lap In 2016

    I think if lewis makes a good start he could be In the poundseat with the ultrasoft abit like the perez strategies at sauber a few years ago. but is the risk/reward scenario because you cant win it at the 1st corner but you could also lose it

    found the Verstappen 3 stint Q3 very strange, because it almost him under too much pressure because it was just 1 lap flyers & maybe the 2 stint would've been better mentally because if he felt he had the option of a 2nd flying lap then he probally would've gone quicker with relaxing & wouldn't have overdrived the car
