Hartley has been cleared fit to race. That boy is just so unlucky lately!!

Here's the clip of Hartley. The guy has had a massive amount of bad luck this season.
The lack of a wheel was probably a factor too!
Ruslan I think that Mercedes will have the upper hand especially considering that they will be using tyres designed to suit their car, that should give them an advantage, but yes Ferrari is pretty close. IMHO tomorrow Mercedes will be ahead followed by RBR and then Ferrari. It will be interesting to see what happens in Germany when, if I'm not mistake, they will switch back to the standard tyres that have given so many headaches to Mercedes when the weather is warm
It will be interesting to see what happens in Germany. It will also be interesting to see tomorrow 1) how the start goes, 2) whether the Mercedes has a higher tire wear problem than the Ferrari (the reason for the thinner wall tires was because of the wear issues, so this should not be an issue this race...not that I really understand how this works), and 3) whether the Mercedes has resolved all their reliability problems from last week.
Big gap between the Red Bulls again, Max is really hitting his stride.
Also notable that 5 of the 6 Ferrari-powered cars made it to Q3. Christian Horner commented on the C4 coverage that he believes that to now be the benchmark engine - on this evidence you'd have to agree.

when the tyres overheat the inner part of the tyre releases some gasses that move towards the other part of the tyre (sorry if I used such a simple language but I don't know all the technical terms in English), basically little bubbles of air move towards the surface of the tyre and when they are expelled from the tyre they create lacerations of the surface of the tyre reducing its foorprint and making it less even (ie. you lose grip), that's blisterting. The thinner tyre is useful if you overheat your tyres because there is less "mass" and on the one hand the temperature on the inside of the tyres is generally fractionally lower (= less hot gasses moving towards the outer side of the tyre).
when you know that you are going to have some blistering what people normally do is use softer compounds because when the tyre wears out it evens the surface and so the blistering loses some of its negative effects (last week, as you'll remember, they had some issues with blistering mostly with the soft compound, ie. the harder available to them)
I hope that this simple explanation was helpful, I realise that the language is a bit basic...
Hamilton says pole lap was one of his best ever
id like to say more but i was preoccupied with sporting event that F1 overran into
Vettel has had the better starts of late, of course now I've said that..... I am hoping he'll do it again today, though I know that is not necessarily the popular view here.
Leclerc got that Sauber into Q3 again, he really is a star.
