Always thought if they all took turns in the same car,Lewis would be that half a second quicker,
(Verstappen runs him close on pure speed) but think it might be more now,which is crazy,just shows
how good Lewis is.
If they swapped drivers Ferrari would be world champs this year.....easily...
This circuit is a high downforce track which suites the Red Bull cars. I'm hoping that Hamilton stays out of trouble with Vettel and Verstappen colliding
Great pole by Hamilton. He is definitely the Senna of poles, regardless of the circuit and car he drives.
I was reading the BBC rolling report during qualifying and one of their staff wrote that Hamilton was now only 11 poles behind Michael Schumacher's record. Now I'm no expert, but even I know Hamilton has held that record for a while now.
Senna was and is the king of Poles for me. Hamilton has a touch of Senna's gifts for quick single laps and driving in the wet, but the Brazilian was a different level to anyone I've ever seen in those two disciplines.
The Toleman around Monte Carlo was epic. Prost desperate for them to stop the race was a measure of how astonishing even a young Senna was in the rain.
