    Bill Boddy Daft but then again you can't please everybody especially when the organisers paid a lot of money for the race
    and the teams are worried about the engines overheating then something needs to give

    So Bottas on pole then. I suppose I have to grudgingly say maybe he has a bit more fire than I thought. Watch this space.

    Will we be talking about the undercut or the overcut for the pit stops?

    Congrats to Bottas on his 1st f1 pole. Not the most surprising because we always knew he had the talent from Gp3 & he shouldve won the British GP but they lacked the ruthlessness to tell Massa to move over & chucked it away. Interesting to note that if he didnt before he has Hamilton respect now, saying something like how he hooked up that 1st lap only to get a shock when he found out bottas was only 1/2 tenth behind

    some great Valtteri Bottas facts ive found as well. He is the first Finn without a 'K' in his name to claim pole position in F1 & the Finn to get a pole was silverstone 2008 beating his teammate who you guessed it was Lewis Hamilton

    Well......that was disappointing. Not seeing Bottas on pole, but again seeing a Merc on pole and Niki Lauda and Toto Wolff Bromancing again and again gets so tiring.

    I can't rememeber when there was another car on pole in f1, I really can't. Is it 2013?
    This weekend feels so like 2016 Bahrein again. The margin between Merc and Ferrari is almost identical from last year.

    Yes, the fourth season in a row, it's like watching the German Bundesliga where Bayern Munich walks away with the title every season.
    Bottas at least seems to be faster than Rosberg in qualifying.

    Quick reminder that Nico Rosberg scored 8 pole positions last year.

    It was Austria 2014. The 2015 non-Mercedes pole was when their form suddenly and mysteriously crashed in Singapore and Vettel thus dominated.

    Sorry folks but that confirms Bottas's position within the team.

    Bottas had all sorts of problems didn't he? Something about his rear tyre pressures being too high? I'm sure Hammy will believe he could/should have won without the 5 second penalty but the Ferrari, with Vettel at the wheel at least, is faster in the race. Not sure what Mercedes do with their engine in qualifying but it doesn't seem to work as well come Sunday.

    3 place grid penalty and 2 points on licence for Carlos for the most idiotic move since the days of pastor.

    Sainz gets three-place grid penalty for Russia

    Bahrain GP: Was Lewis Hamilton's penalty deserved? - Err, yes.
