It's backing off from the flying lap that might be a problem to be investigated but I think he will be alright.
I pretty sure you're allowed to back off a flying lap if you want to.... I've never heard of that being a problem before. He had backed off way before Bottas caught him. It's not unusual.
Bottas would not have seen him before he came around the corner but like I say not an obvious block.
Yeah it's unfortunate but Verstappen did actually get out of Bottas' way. He didn't impede him. A Verstappen penalty here will be a Monza 06 moment.

Max is running a newer, more powerful upgraded engine, whereas Ricciardo is running a previous generation power unit coming to the end of its life. Ricciardo was never going to be close to Max.

BTW is it just me or do Ferrari only up the engine to max for the second runs in the Q3 and their first runs are maybe at a lower mode? I can't recall well but don't their drivers often improve their first Q3 runs by tenths in the second run?

How many tenths do you think it was worth in qualifying today?

Herb just has a misguided love for Kimi. He gets so sad when Kimi does not get pole that he cant contain his frustration!

Its always good to wait for what the drivers have to say post qualy, there might have some issues we don't yet know.

That said regardless of engine spec, I did not expected RIC to beat MAX this weekend, Max has been on it lately, will not be at all surprised if he wins tomorrow.

Vettel was superb today. Max was also very good but his final run was disappointing.

Hamilton and Bottas were OK. Not bad but nothing special.

Ricciardo and Raikkonen just terrible.

It doesn't hurt Kimi at this point, but Daniel's reputation is at serious risk here if he doesn't improve.

Verstappen would still have beaten Ricciardo in equal equipment, he just wouldn't have "destroyed" him.

:thumbup: he put himself off the racing line and slowed so he wouldn’t interfere at the next corner. He couldn’t have done any more and it’s not his fault if Bottas locked up.

Ricc is now basically admitting he couldn't be on it in qualifying as he had no grip. Not a good day for him.

Not sure who did better out of Vettel and Verstappen as I'm not sure who had the better car. Merc were average.

Ricc felt "helpless" in that qualifying.

Yes! :thumbup:
Vettel pulled the same trick in Austin on his last run, same for Raikkonen.
It seems they have only one but powerful boost that they use in their second run in Q3.

Yes this appears to be the case, I crunched the numbers on this when we were discussing what Kimi might have done in his 2nd run at Spa this year, up until that point Vettel had gone quicker on his 2nd Q3 run 11/12 races. Kimi was 10/12 (both errors) its a pattern that has continued. The usual gain is at least 0.2-0.3

@ king void

^^^^^^ this, max cant be compared to riccardo due to unequal equipment. They arent going to be close for the rest of the year.

Let's hope that Renault don't take a step backward or even stand still over the winter with their PU. With a near equal PU in the McLaren and RB cars next year could be a hell of a season.

Nobody denied Mercedes has a Q3 mode. It is just that Ferrari improves "massively" on their second run in Q3 unlike Mercedes. Do you remember Austin? Singapore?

On the contrary I often notice that Mercedes often don't improve or if they do not by much in second Q3 runs, meaning they use their super engine mode for the whole of Q3 rather than the final run.

Which is more gutting. Being beaten by your competitor who then wins the championship, or have him cruse home behind you, then still win the championship?

No word on front wing yet.
I was wrong here. Alonso reverted to 3.7 spec this morning to save 3.8 for Brazil and AD so no difference in engine hardware.

However still not clear on aero and suspension as Alonso has said McLaren brought new floor(Alo Malaysia,both in Jpn),front wing (Alo US, Unsure here but looks like Alo for sure) winglets (???) and new suspension (???) recently and is saying they had the best car here.

I had no idea about the suspension change so unclear who's got what at this stage. I think it's only the font wing Stoff doesn't have as that was the only one they all talked about in Austin in regards to parity (Stoff,Alo,EB and ZB) but they didn't know if they'd get two out here in time for Mexico.

Should find out in either the qualy or race report.

Shamelessly lifted from AS and "Quickshifter"...

Alonso:-

"The engine is the same," he said. "In fact, today we have the previous engine. Yesterday we used the new engine but saved it for Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

"So all the improvements are thanks to the aero and a bit to the suspension parts we've brought over the past races. As of today, or at least today, we have the best car."

"The car was handling incredible," he added. "In the corners it has very good grip and it allows you to drive instinctively and easily. A spectacular weekend up until now.

"Today, for the first time in three years, we can be pretty sure that we had the best car on track."

It seems the biggest gaps between team mates we have seen all season... 0.7+ on such a short lap between the Ferrari, Red Bull, Mclaren and Williams pairs. Around 0.4 between the Renault and FI drivers.

Also Hamilton going from his 0.5 average post summer break down to nothing.

Yes, I'm sure I read that Mercedes' high power mode is much more efficient and they can use it longer and more often, while Ferrari have to be very cautious as to when they use theirs as it's a bit of an all or nothing deal

Once the talk about Ric to Merc heated up, his or the cars performanced dropped. Not a coincidence, I am not surprised. What is rather annoying is lots of people saying Max would have out qualified Dan regardless (if the had same spec and wasnt talk of move to merc). I believe Max was beaten in quali last weekend. People quick to forget and love a chance to blow bubbles up Max's ... and the #1 in the team. Or did they forget that too.

Ricc complained about having no grip and not having a good day. He wasn't on it himself with setup.

Max was beaten by Ricc in quali the last two race weekends IIRC BTW but this is this week and last week was last week.

Very unusual session for Ricciardo, he was fastest on Friday.

Hope RB get to the bottom of that quickly.

Going to be an interesting first lap.

If Renault can pull a good engine for next year (they're far too good to continually get it wrong) then 2018 will be a classic.

He'll be used to it but this is probably the one circuit where Honda's power deficit is masked. And judging by his Q1 time, as well as what he was doing in FP2, he's been on it in a big way.

One weekend where Fernando gets to mix it at the front again. It's all I ask.

Not masked at all. The McLarens are almost 20 mph slower on the long straight. They are crippled by the feckless Honda engine. McLaren have been pretty creative setting up tows during FP and Qualy, giving the impression that they have more speed than they actually have.

I'd like to see Fred up front as well, but it will never happen until next year.

You do realize that Ricciardo was outqualified by a Force India right? He did not have a good day.

No tow in the 2nd run which was quicker.

Don't think the tow worked that great at this altitude,where did you get 5ths from?

Ocon put in a great lap, despite not running in FP1. Psychologically, he should've qualified lower than Checo but by posting the 6th fastest time, ahead of Ricciardo even, proves what a good choice he is for Force India.

He out-qualified Ricciardo too. The defence of Ricc doesn't make sense in this thread - he just had a bad day and admitted it outright. On the flipside, Max had a very good and very strong day.

Bottas had an improved day if his interviews are to be believed and Hamilton had a below-par day though he claims he couldn't have done much more.

Vettel was strong, similar to Verstappen. His lap was clean and more or less without error - didn't lose much time through one or two tiny errors.
