    Wonder if they get radio interference when *EVERYBODY* gets on the radio at the same time.
    (Such as "Move it, guys!!" :p)

    Just talking about qualifying tactics. Ferrari started it with Alonso/Massa (without great results) in the modern area. Now that everyone is doing it, it’s making Q3 a dicey proposition (good spectacle, but adds unnecessary risk factors

    You would think that F1 would have run out bullets by now for as many times as it has shot itself in the foot. The world is not laughing with you, it is laughing at you, what a fiasco.

    Stroller might have some fingers pointing at him for almost stopping after the first chicane.

    If Hulk gets a penalty, Stroll should get one as well.

    He admitted in the post qual interview he slowed down because he saw Hulk go off on purpose.

    On another note, it will be fun watching Max carve through the field tomorrow.

    Fine, but with little consequence to the rest.

    LOL they asked Kimi about the last lap and he is like " I wasn't involved so I don't care".

    Slipstreaming isn't the issue. The ridiculous qualy format and the obsession with being the last one to cross the line before checkers is the problem.

    It suited Hulk to slow the whole thing down ,so his time would not get beaten ...

    Hulk is 1st to be summoned into the stewards for "leaving the track without a justifiable reason"

    The key learning is to NOT allow a Racing Point and a Renault to lead the final quali run.

    Here we go. I guess someone has to be sacrificed for all of this. If Hulk is punished then so should Stroll . . . . . . and so on, and so on . . . .

    Albon: Everybody was going for the slipstream. Its worth so much in these cars, you can't not have one basically and no-one wants to go first and we didn't do a lap with the red flag. I am sure it looks a bit silly on the TV and it feels silly in the car as well.
