Well, we probably don’t want to read to much in that 0.75 second qualifying advantage. Vettel completely muffed the second sector of his lap and I gather the two Mercedes were turned down so as make sure their engines didn’t grenade.i got to say on holiday it did make qualifying more exciting. having seen nothing before hand
but it does give them time to discuss F1 matters in more detail. which came in handy discussing all events of the last 2 weeks. is great to listen too if not riveting on track
I'll be honest since the bordom of France I've now got a current mode of not even watching quali and just reading about it. All the races have been pretty interesting since then.i got to say on holiday it did make qualifying more exciting. having seen nothing before hand
Vettel and Leclerc were running close to each other through all the qualifying sessions and free practice sessions. Vettel just blew a lap.but that's qualifying getting a lap hooked up under pressure vettel didnt twice & leclerc did. he got pole, i dont expect him to run & hide but thats still same car same track. 3/4 of a second
yes i see that point i know they cancelled both F2 races rightly & they have a minute silence. im fully expecting no champagne. but i cant talk about the mood because it was before my time. but they carried on racing in 1994 after ratsenberger passing in qualifying. so some people want to carry onGiven the incident in the F2 race, I am in two minds about whether there should even be an F1 race today. Sometimes, there are bigger things than sport.
I was discussing this of course was the only talk of motorsport convocation, but the run off isn't the big problem because 180mph tarmac run off would need to be trebled its impractical, but it was the barrier at fault it needs to be better at absorbing the energy. because it was the bouncing off back on to the racing line that was issue not the run offConsidering how safe virtually every circuit has been made in recent years,it does seem odd that that particular spot at Spa seems to have escaped modification, seeing how many massive crashes have happened there.
