    Whilst the Monza qualy battle was focused on Hamilton & Vettel you had Raikkonen sneak in & trump them with the quickest lap in F1 history(in terms of avg lap speed). He took advantage of the slipstream following Vettel & absolutely nailed the lap to perfection. Pretty sure Vettel cracked the sads because he should have been following Raikkonen to get his tow but didn’t get out of the pits in that order.
    Hopefully a good race will be on the cards.

    What a great quali and a great race. Not the result I wanted, but that takes nothing away from it.

    I was more disappointed that Kimi didn't win than Ricciardo's car failing again.

    People are wondering why he has stuck with Renault engines for next year, but you don't see the yellow renaults break down as often as the red bulls.

    Any move out of Red Bull means better reliability.

    Red Bull are changing to getting engine for Honda for 2019 and 2020. In fact if they don't work out red Bull have yet again threatened to walk away from F1 - https://www.foxsports.com.au/motors...r/news-story/e203f653e27b0b60766ca05cad23c6de

    Horner said earlier this year that they expect 2019 to be poor but expect to be a front runner by 2020-21

    Idk if you guys listen to Macquaire Sports radio. But they have a decent length spot about motorsport on Monday nights. 10pm?
