Anyone notice how high Leclerc sits in the car?

Also talks of Mercedes having got a clever innovation on their cooling system allowing them bursts of extra power within the same engine mode.

Re: The Official Sir Lewis Hamilton thread

I don't have an issue with Hamilton's tax status but I've seen that graphic a few times and it's kind of a stretch. For a start Hamilton has been an MBE for years and nobody cared about his tax status so we can only compare him to Stewart who was knighted in 2001 just after selling a business based...

Mind you, it doesn't mean that Stroll necessarily listened to his engineer's advice. Track conditions were improving so it's not out of the question that he generally went quicker while still showing a delightful courtesy to the yellows.

Why the f**k did Q2 start with a tractor still moving a car off track? It could easily have been delayed by two minutes to avoid it.

After the unlapping under safety car incident last race, that was really not good to see.

Re: 2020 Turkish Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

I am wondering about the benefit of Max qualifying second if he has to start on the dirty or greasy side of the grid. He may get freight trained by the two Racing Points at the green light tomorrow. Wet or dry, it seems it will be an interesting start and first lap. The track is equal on both sides

Both Hamilton's Q2 and Q3 laps were slower than Bottas in Q3 so the question is how did Hamilton cross the line first????

Are they using A combination of Hamilton’s Q2 and Q3 sector times? He was faster in Q2 than Q3 so perhaps his best times combined would have given him the time faster than Bottas got in Q3. I’m just guessing, would have to go back and watch to work it out.
The video says Q3 mini sectors.
