Does Bottas have a grid penalty? Why will Max start from poll tomorrow?

Apparently BOT will start at the back because of a new power unit.
Just read that too.

And HAM behind 2 mcLarens will post a challenge. They are very fast here, they might win the race even.

I wonder to what extent this new PU for BOT is really necessairy.
With BOT now starting last, he can't help HAM much. So (in hindsight at least) that might have been a tactical error.
We'll see tomorrow.

Just hope mclaren don't dive bomb max at turn 1. And HAM will start on bad side again. May have another difficult start.

I wonder if that just didn't even worsen his position.

Here a clip from the start.
HAM even lost his position to GAS, but GAS hit his front wing I think to the back of RIC car in T1 (you can see the left front part of the wing suddely dipping down, which indicates that the right front parts hits a rear wheel flicking the wing up)

Does she get a salary?

What happened to Hammy at the start?
Well ,as you know some girls are like a chameleon

I heard her annual salary/income is +/- $1 Million .

HAM's start ?
He got too much wheel spin and he messed it completely up ...

MAX ?
So far....So good ! He's P1 for the race !

Wow the Mercedes is much faster due to the track layout. Max couldn't really catch up, but I'm sure Bottas was pushing it more since it was a sprint and not much to lose. We'll see how this plays out over the course of a long race.

Mclaren! Let's go Lando! Would love to see Mclaren double podium finish tomorrow!

Lewis will have to work very hard to win this one, could well be a turning point in the Championship battle.
With Max & RBSR inheriting pole it's their race to lose.

Personally I'd like to see a McLaren win, preferably Norris. I can't be doing with watching someone drink Champagne from a wet, sweaty & presumably smelly racing boot

Anyways am looking forward to tomorrow's race & even more so to reading the 'insightful' & unbiased in & post race analysis here on BP

I think so as well. Max was 1.4-1.6s behind Bottas consistently throughout sprint. If Max can get ahead on that first lap cleanly, particularly that first chicane, the traffic will hold up Ham. Mclaren having P2&3 start will be super interesting as well on how this affects Ham. Hopefully no flags in first lap, but this circuit is destined to have f-ups on that first lap haha

This season MAX wins always positions during the start . It looks just outstanding !

The McLaren's wont get a chance ...

Today after 30 min. and 18 laps , the first McLaren (RIC) finished 14 + sec. behind MAX .

It's very clear that HAM makes mistakes by the pressure coming from MAX !
BTW : MAX looked in top-shape , he's ready for it !

Correction ...
First HAM pulled it full to the his left side , because he noticed that MAX was already along him => pic # 1
That was useless , because MAX was faster away anyway .
Then he noticed that NOR was coming and then he pulled it to his right side and pushed NOR on the grass => pic # 2 , 3 ,4

Honestly , HAM looked like 'drunk man behind his steering wheel ..
HAM's dirty tricks ?
Or just running under pressure ?

From the start .The pics in order :

Indeed I didn't expect HAM to perform this bad, loosing the start to both VER and both the mclarens.

I also didn't know then that BOT would take a new PU.

Lets see what the race tomorrow brings. Hopefully my crystal ball is still that dirty then...

One thing is for certain, if VER wins tomorrow, it's certainly not because he had the best car for the track.
It'll be a combination of talent, tactics and a bit of luck (or maybe better said poor tactics of the competition)

A bit of both. He is of course allowed to defend his position, but you can clearly see that he is the only one who forces a car (NOR) onto the last (dirty) piece of the PIT outlane and consequently onto the grass.
If he's the only one in the field doing that, than.......(at least that shows some desparation...)

Yeah .But HAM's slalom was a big mistake , and finally he lost it on both sides .
Today HAM is been screwed by both McLaren's ..

Won't be easy to break the McLaren's defence from his P4 !

Indeed I also expect both Mclarens to defend their places against HAM to the teeth.
NOR is in big competition with BOT and PER for 3rd place so the more cars between him and those two is very important, and of course McLaren is also in a big fight with ferrari for 3rd place WCC so the more cars between them and the ferrari's the better.

That's for sure

But ! On the other hand ...
As we know , the McLaren is actually an orange Mercedes !

And knowing Toto ! We never know

Checo ?
Wow ! What a mess...
