    First time in many, many years when 2 Canadian drivers are together on track driving a F1 car. Last time was when Gilles and Jacques (Sr) were together for the 1981 Canadian GP ?

    I'm working under the presumption that none of the times are directly comparable to the Grand Prix weekend.

    Track conditions, tyre conditions and type fuel loads etc.

    Experience would suggest that it is not always ditectly compatable.

    At this stage even being 2 seconds slower would already have been impressive...

    Norris' time is 0.2s faster than Alonso's in Q3. When you're running all day, you have a better chance of being on track during the right temperature/air density combination, plus there is probably more rubber on the racing line.

    Same track, yes. Same cars? Debatable. Engine modes, tyres, parts? I doubt it.

    Well most importantly the tyres were definitely different seeing as though Robert set his fastesrt times on the ultra-softs, which weren't used during the GP weekend, nor were they used by any other driver in action today.

    But the fact remains he'd never driven a 2017 car before so it was still an impressive day by him, irrespective of track conditions or tyres used. Going after the last few tenths however is gonna be a different kettle of fish so we can only hope he does get the opportunity to have a go at it at some point in the future...
