    Hamilton is getting pushed over the limit, if I was him I’d put all more time in practice into the long run pace and forget about qualifying, the car is easily quick enough to qualify on the front row.

    He needs to let go and accept that he maybe isn’t the quickest driver out there and concentrate on the win, long run pace all the way.

    • Which on balance he is certainly not slower.

    • “He needs to let go and accept that he maybe isn’t the quickest driver out there”

      I’d agree with that if it was 7-4 in qual when Hamilton didn’t give it away in Silverstone, had his brake fail and car smash into a wall in Hockenhiem, then have his entire chassis melted in a fire in the following qualifying.

      Strange how some people forget Rosberg spinning and messing up his Q3 laps earlier in the year, isn’t it?, not to mention lucking (if not actual cheating) into a result in Monaco

      7-4 to Ros so far this year is a skewed number, but if some people want to believe its like that on pure pace. Then thats upto you.

    Amazing job by Fernando, only 0.069 behind Vettel in a car with massive downforce. Congrats to Rosberg. Amazing race tomorrow, I hope there is some fight between Ferrari, RB and Williams, but I guess Ferrari if is dry, will go back very quickly.

      Who is to say the Ferrari hasn’t got massive downforce? Can’t stand these assumptions that the Ferrari is a bad car and Alonso magic is behind every good result.

      Maybe the guys back at Maranello need at least some of the credit always directed at Alonso.

        “Can’t stand these assumptions that the Ferrari is a bad car”

        It’s not an assumption, its the truth.

        Both Ferrari drivers have cited low downforce on this car through this season so not sure how much more in touch you are with the car. But to make you feel good about your baseless comment, let’s just say that the Ferrari is best on the grid and it’s Alonso’s weak driving that has dropped him down the standings.

        Ferrari and RB are almost similar on performance but RB might have that lil bit more pace this season. It definitely has not been like the past 4 years when RB had the outright fast car with Ferrari building some trucks comparatively.

        Something has changed at Spa though. I think Ferrari might be faster here. Something to do with covering the exhaust and recovery of the heat energy?

        Tomorrow’s race will tell us if Ferrari have improved the car after the break or not. But it certainly is no Merc!

    Seb will beat Daniel now .he has got to grip with the car and will prove all his doubters wrong . Also i hope Hamilton is getting his just desserts for all the times he has implied that he could do what seb did with the best car he clearly cannot win even with a car at least a second faster
