    Not bad Ror 10, 12 for Haas , Seb must be mildly happy, enough not to all ecoGreen this weekend, Red possibly lol, Max will turn up the wick tomorrow no doubt, obviously Alfa Don't like Spain by there pace sofar, and well done King G another cracking Fp2 .

    For me so far this yr Williams have been the disappointing team,even with new regs for everyone+improved Merc power , seems they just cant move up the grid, need that Audi contract id say more than ever .

      Haas is just teasing me. I'm bummed that Gunny says no real update until France. Hopefully they can scratch out some points before then. Agree with you regarding Williams even though they are no longer a proper Brit team I still love 'em.

      For we fans the good news is that MB appears to be competitive. The more at the front the better. We'll see. If Lewie takes off his bling and reduces overall weight maybe he can chase down Georgie Boy.

      Big disappointment? McL. C'mon guys.
