Lando Norris is really impressing me at the moment. Qualified 5th again and beating his experienced team mate Sainz.
He also celebrated the British Grand Prix by wearing a helmet designed by a 6 year old girl.
Hamilton on Pole,
Bottas 2nd and Verstappen 3rd. George Russell qualified 15th
again but ended up with a 5 place penalty, will start in last place.
Bad day for Albon 12th
Hamilton: A difficult qualifying. Spun it in Q2, yet still ended up 0.3s ahead of Bottas when it counted. Brilliant!
Verstappen: P3 but over a second down on P1. I'm predicting a very lonely race for him.
Leclerc: Amazing performance to get a dog of a car onto the 2nd row, but difficult to see how he can keep it there. He's starting on the Mediums, which is good, and he is an amazing driver. But that Ferrari is just plain awful!
Norris: This guy is fast becoming a superstar, both on and off the track. Fantastic performance to get to P5.
And THAT helmet! Superb. There has been so much talk about how the sport can attract a younger audience. Well we have the answer. The answer is Lando Norris.
Stroll: Hugely disappointing. That car is made for this circuit and I fully expected him to put it on P3. But in the end he was half a second away from P3. Not good.
Vettel: Awful. Just awful. P10 and starting on the soft tyres. Time to hang up your helmet Seb.
Gasly: Came within 0.001s from knocking Stroll out in Q2. P11 and a choice of tyres. Expecting a good race from him.
Albon: Buckling under the pressure. The second Red Bull seat is a very tough one. You need to be strong. Alex isn't.
I don't think he will get the axe mid-season as previously happened with both Kvyat and Gasly, so he has time to up his game. But I'm just not seeing it. Perez for Red Bull next year anyone!?
Hulkenberg: A tough job in very difficult circumstances but still, P13 is a little disappointing. I'm expecting to come away with a bag-full of points though.
Russell: This guy is on the cusp of setting a record of 'Most consecutive times out qualifying a team mate'. And yet he's never scored a point in his F1 career. Funny old game!
