I think we'll hear GP asking Max over and over to slow down

The car is crazy fast and Max is so much in control over his driving.
Rain and safety cars/strategy are the things he has to focus on, but that is an aspect both RB and Max usually excell on too .

It's gonna be about tyre management all race on this track. For sure 2 pitstops, mostly softs and mediums, and some may need 3 stops.
Of course if it stays dry
Unreal seing SAI starting 2nd and LEC 19th, looks like Chas's car will be stripped and rebuilt to see why it is slow and cumbersome to drive.

So I suspect the reason ALO to be slower than STR, that ALO got quite a bit of floor damage in Q1.

Can they replace the floor under parc fermé conditions?
I assume they can....

The only things you can change in PF are front wing, diff and brake balance and LEC's car also can be worked on those things only i just read.
If other things are done then car starts from pit lane.

DEV needs to start stringing some races together… with PER all of the sudden struggling its opening up a gap for RIC. If DEV doesn’t get it together could see RIC getting into his seat in preps to move up to PER seat next year.

Marko said a few days ago that DEV is now doing exactly what is expected from him.
Marko is considering DEV as a rookie, not a well seasoned F1 driver.

However I am really curious to see what RIC could do in the current RB19. But RIC was outclassed by Max just as Checo is outclassed by Max, and he was outclassed by NOR, so I expect him not to be any better than Checo.

Yes he was - but it kind of seems they are souring on Checo and he looks to be pressing very hard right now and really feeling some pressure. I wouldn't expect RIC to be better either but he has other benefits that PER doesn't and I think that might be more appealing to RBR if Checo can't put the car in P2 consistently moving forward.

As far as Marko saying that - at this point he has to run that out there. Saying otherwise would zero benefit at this point. As far as RIC taking his seat though I really don't think there is much of a chance of it happening - just stirring it up a bit. But I do think RIC taking PER seat has a decent chance and only gets higher if PER keeps making mistakes like this. I think that is starting to get into the PER head a little bit too.

We know SAINZ as a gravel racer . But today he ran P2 with Ferrari's Red Bull sidepods !
But first let's see how the Ferrari tyres hold up during the race .

Perez ?
Checo was nowhere. Helmut Marko said : The last 2 races he performed far below his level and It's time to wake up ASAP !

Charlie ?
Too bad !
Not sure what is going on with him . Think Bino was better for him with all his 2022 pole pos. !

MAX ?
For all doubters : MAX is best F1 driver of the century !
MAX is a weapon behind the steering wheel .
3 years ago I said : This is only the beginning . And so it is ...

Some say it's the car and for sure it does help but as the saying for Pirelli Zero tyres goes, 'power is nothing without control' and I think it's the beginning of Checo giving up.

Somewhere along the line there was a build error on Chas's car unlike on Carlos's, the difference is staggering and it won't be easy finding what was wrong with the 16 car.

Well , Checo drives the same RB19 .So ...

Think Checo puts himself under pressure to match with MAX , and it's right there where it goes wrong for him.
Because he just can't do it , like many others before him at the Red Bull team .

Gasly got a 6 P grid penalty .
The Russell boy and LEW just got a warning (because Mercedes)

This means Gasly is P10 and our LEW is P4 at the startgrid .

Go Lando . Go !!!

Rosberg is now joining the Toto band wagon by giving his take on the floor of Checo's 19, he must have a lot of time on his hands there in the principality talking about things he knows little about.

Let's put the RB19 floor under the W14-B/Spec and the Merc wouldn't move anymore ..
