Horrible qualifying for Kimi and Ricciardo both look out of sort with big deficit. I think it is going to be boring race with not much overtaking like 1 pitstop so start will be crucial for the outcome of this race. Both Ferrari and RBR seems to be better than Mercedes as expected due to the nature of this track

Kimi apparently had no working tyre sensors so was completely in the dark regarding tyre temps.

Rey Mysterio Jr.: I believe you can do it Ricci.

Riccardo: I am not so sure if the "6-1-9" is allowed within the FIA regulations.

What is the crack with the facemask/helmet thing? What is the Mexico connection?

He got a nice tow, that's worth a whopping 0.5 sec.
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?
Vettel mentioned 0.5 secs when Kimi gave him a tow at Spa.

Vettel said 0.2 at Spa didn't he? That was also a long distance tow, Kimi was running about 1.5 seconds ahead.

Thanks :thumbup:

I still do not see where it fits in with GP though? Cricket pads at Silverstone or helmets and faceguards in USA and Hockey sticks in Canada?

Edit, not having a moan, just can't follow
