Re: 2021 Emilia Romagna (Imola) Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Strange to see a teammate so close to Verstappen. Almost assume it's a poor lap by Max. Perhaps Max isn't the Schumacher to Hamilton's Hill after all... Lol I would never rate Hill that highly but he's a nice chap. I don't think Hamilton vs Verstappen is comparable to any past rivalry tbh Surely Se...

I'm worried for Ricciardo. Needs to step up or he might lose too much kudos for a shot at a top drive. Time isn't his friend.
Strange how large a gap we're seeing between the new-coming drivers and the settled drivers. Consistent gaps of around 4-5 tenths each.

Re: 2021 Emilia Romagna (Imola) Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Maybe we should stop asking whether Mercedes or Red Bull are faster and just ask whether Mercedes and Red Bull X Verstappen is faster.

The quantity Max brings to the Red Bull pace is really quite hard to determine until Perez gets fully comfortable with the car.
