    Well that was unexpected.

  2. Patrick (@paeschli) said on 21st June 2014, 14:04

    Well that’s… disturbing

  3. Graham (@guitargraham) said on 21st June 2014, 14:05

    fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO TEAM WILLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Ciaran (@ciaran) said on 21st June 2014, 14:05

    I remember Sky were saying before quali that Mercedes’ advantage would be bigger here than any other circuit so far… so much for that!

    • Chris (@tophercheese21) said on 21st June 2014, 14:22

      I think it would’ve been a Mercedes 1-2 again had Lewis’s car not unexpectedly snapped, and thus effected Nico’s lap as well.

      But, shoulda, woulda coulda.

      Congrats to Williams! They finally capitalized on a favour able situation!

  5. Strontium (@strontium) said on 21st June 2014, 14:05

    Did not see that one coming! So pleased for Massa and Bottas, and Williams! And that spin for Hamilton was completely unexpected! Fantastic – those 12 minutes were better than last year’s entire season.

  6. Matheus Ramos (@jedimaster9) said on 21st June 2014, 14:06

    That was great but don’t expect a win ;D

  7. David BR2 said on 21st June 2014, 14:06

    Hamilton now under total pressure for this championship and cracking, dismal performance.

    • D (@f190) said on 21st June 2014, 14:10

      He will crash tomorrow. Its so easy to predict. I mentioned after his first run mistake he would end up p10 and I wasn’t too wrong ! Rosberg has him on the ropes now. It should be an easy win for him tomorrow and the championship slipping further away from Hamilton. Its not over, but you expect with others seemingly catching up Mercedes will pick their lead driver soon.

    • Oli (@dh1996) said on 21st June 2014, 14:12

      Technical failure, without a doubt.

    • matt90 (@matt90) said on 21st June 2014, 14:14

      He certainly messed up the 1st lap, but that was such an odd spin that I can’t imagine it was anything other than a technical failure.

    • Sven (@crammond) said on 21st June 2014, 14:14

      That looked like a transmission-failure on downshift.

      • David BR2 said on 21st June 2014, 14:23

        Maybe so, to be honest I was distracted at the precise moment and haven’t seen the replay
        However ever since his unwise ‘I’m hungrier’ comment, Nico has been piling on the pressure. This has led to smaller margins for Hamilton, including his run-off in the first run of the final qualifying session, where he just had to put in a banker lap. It’s all knock-on effects. He needs to stop trying to win everything instantly and consolidate or he’ll lose the championship in the next few races.

        • matt90 (@matt90) said on 21st June 2014, 14:25

          He’s losing far more points due to car failures than his own errors or failings. That’s where his problem really lies.

          • Lari (@lari) said on 21st June 2014, 14:30

            Well, for example this quali, it was 50/50 in regards to himself (binned the 1st quick lap) and car problem (assuming the last one is indeed car problem).

  8. thetobs (@thetobs) said on 21st June 2014, 14:07

    WOW. Massa on pole!!! Bottas second!!! Williams 1-2!!! Loads of exclamation marks!!! Awesome!!!

  9. Star said on 21st June 2014, 14:09

    Growing up in the bad ass streets of Stevenage can play tricks on the mind. Cut Hamsy some slack.

  10. Mike Dee (@mike-dee) said on 21st June 2014, 14:09

    Hamilton’s first lap would have been faster – he was 4 tenth up on Bottas after the 2nd sector at that time. Unfortunately for him, he overcooked it in the last sector.

    • Lari (@lari) said on 21st June 2014, 14:11

      There’s been plenty of would’ve, could’ve for Hamilton this season, but as we know, it only counts if you can hold it for the entire lap, parts don’t really matter.

  11. AmbroseRPM (@ambroserpm) said on 21st June 2014, 14:10

    Felipe Baby!!!

  12. Michael Brown (@) said on 21st June 2014, 14:10

    Hamilton had issues with his BBW

  13. Everyone, Felipe is faster than you!

    Beautiful. I shed a tear. as a long time Williams fan, no matter the drivers. What a good day it is indeed. Maldonado his win was nice but this really is something else emotionally for me.

    • BasCB (@bascb) said on 21st June 2014, 14:39

      Its great to see them really take the fight, and not mess up. Not expecting a great result for them tomorrow but wouldn’t it be incredible if they did!

    • courier said on 21st June 2014, 15:51

      I too shed a tear. I think anyone who loves F1 has to like seeing Sir Frank and Felipe get today’s result. Hell, I think I even saw Seb shed a tear, but that may have been for completely different reasons.

  14. Mayank (@mjf1fan) said on 21st June 2014, 14:11

    Hamilton choked under pressure and Rosberg didn’t get the most out of that W05. Sad. But many many congratulations to Massa, Bottas and Williams. Finally performing to the potential of that car.

    • Lari (@lari) said on 21st June 2014, 14:14

      I think they’ve extracted the best out of the car on a few occassions already this season. I think this was something noone expected and I’d say they overdid it now.

      • Mayank (@mjf1fan) said on 21st June 2014, 14:23

        Considering how close they were to Mercedes during pre season test, one would have expected a better fight from them but due to some unlucky circumstances and some of their own doing, they couldn’t capitalise on that. But yes, today’s a celebration day for them. Lets enjoy the change we got to see. :) Hopefully Massa can hold that position in race as well.

  15. Lari (@lari) said on 21st June 2014, 14:11

    Hamilton binning it, England’s soccer team binning it, this week(end) hasn’t been good for them…

  16. Kiran Sripathy (@kiransripathy) said on 21st June 2014, 14:11

    Best qualifying this season. Icing on the cake was Alonso congratulating Massa. Alonso wondering why is he still stuck with Ferrari.

  17. Dizzy said on 21st June 2014, 14:12

    Given how everyone is going on about Ricciardo beating Vettel proves that Vettel is overrated & undeserving of his success.

    Do the same people also think that Rosberg proving as fast as/beating Lewis proves that Lewis is overrated? Afterall we have had 7-8 years of been told that Lewis is the best driver on the grid or whatever & would easily win the championship if given a half decent car.

    • ADD (@addimaf1) said on 21st June 2014, 14:19

      There’s a difference between 6-2, and 4-4 in qualy. Also everyone expected Rosberg to match Hamilton. Whereas everyone expected Vettel to destroy Riccardo. Also race wise its still 4-1 where both Mercedes have finished. Could be 4-2 tomorrow, lets wait and see. Either way it sets up a great race.

    • Adam Kibbey (@kibblesworth) said on 21st June 2014, 14:19

      Please, without two technical failures, Lewis Hamilton would be wiping the floor in the championship. Bit premature to say he’s not doing well!

    • Mike Dee (@mike-dee) said on 21st June 2014, 14:23

      I don’t think Vettel is overrated. He was clearly the best with the regulations of the last 5 years – it simply suited his driving style well. He is struggling with the handling of the car, and we will have to see whether he can adjust eventually or not – he will have to if he wants to win again as we will have the current regulations for a while to come.

      • jack said on 21st June 2014, 19:52

        “handling the car” is kinda of a huge part of the sport, and it is not as if he has being doing mistakes in which case he could adjust by having a different approach. He just has being “slower than Ricciardo”

  18. Michael Brown said on 21st June 2014, 14:16

    Well done Felipe and Williams ! Fantastic quali result all-round

  19. Neil (@neilosjames) said on 21st June 2014, 14:17

    Awesome result for Massa, really happy for him.

    But… still would have preferred a first pole for Bottas.

  20. Mike Dee (@mike-dee) said on 21st June 2014, 14:18

    Pole lap replay clearly showed that Massa was always within track limits. By quite a lot actually, it was not even a question.
