“So Valtteri, that’s pole position” said Bottas’s race engineer..
Max sat out a final run for whatever reason. Crofty must have mentioned no issues queuing up with only 9 cars for the final run…there were only 8 cars. It didn’t seem like Lewis was able to get his tires just right, which seemed unusual and another Mercedes domination and front row lockout.
oh, and let’s not forget Sebastian checking out Valtteri’s car, during the post qualifying interviews, like a prowling creeper…
Two questions remain in my mind: 1 – would Leclerc have taken pole had he not crashed? and 2 – why isn’t Vettel faster?
