Not sure if it fits the topic, because it’s not a commentator or critic remark, but rather a driver thing:
Any remark in the context of: “We lost two or three tenths [or more] in my last qualifying run in the last corner [or anywhere else] due to [insert anything]. It’s a shame really because we [had the potential to have been in/were on course for] the top 6 [Q2/Q1/etc.] of the grid.”
Half of the field says this after every qualy. The thing is, nobody drives a perfect qualifying lap and if everybody did, the times would all shift parallel to each other and everybody would stay in more or less the same grid position.
