    19. Marcus Ericsson Sweden Sauber-Ferrari 1:13.925
    20. Lance Stroll Canada Williams-Mercedes 1:13.968

    A few observations:
    1. Qualifying will be worth watching as we actually don't know who could be on pole. It could be any of six cars.
    2. Renault and McLaren continue to be the best of the rest, with Hass and Force India keeping them honest.
    3. Williams continues to be outperformed by Sauber. Poor former BMW powered cars!
    4. The Toro Rosso/Honda does not quite seem to be there yet, even with a new engine upgrade.

    Very Entertaining qualifying i thought Top 3 teams all as competitive as each other. How you would hope all the time. Vettel did well great lap but for me star driver was bottas because to outqualify Lewis on his best track is some achievement. Although taking nothing away he seemed off all session Q1 - 5th Q2 - 6th Q3 run 1 6th then 4th. But thats lewis he is temperamental

    Not 1 to side with vettel. But end of Q2 when he was on a flying lap. To be met with traffic jam was ridiculous. Might be harsh but id give all them 5 drivers 3 place grid pens. Because what if it was a guy in 11th difference between Q2 & Q3

    I think everyone jumping up and down about records and how he was going to dominate has tricked Lewis into a false sense of security.

    I thought qualifying was really dull until Q3, but I suppose that's how it's meant to work. We have sort of a bit of a mix on the grid and at least the three "Premier League" teams are mixing it up. It will be interesting to see how the race pans out, this could end up being won and lost in the pit stops.

    I'm hoping for a bit of excitement after the dullness of Monaco.
    I'm looking forward to this race.
