From FP 1 and 2 pace, this looks like a real chance for the RedBulls. Huge advantage over the others! Altitude must suit the Renault engine, since a Renault is third fastest.

Let's hope Dan's car is more reliable than it's been lately!

While yhe Mercs are struggling, it's even worse news for Seb, who needs to win to keep the championship alive. If Seb doesn't win, Lewis doesn't even need to finish.

DAN ON POLE! Hope he can convert!

I'm keen to see how Red Bull will manufacture a win for Verstappen.
Dan certainly has his work cut out!

Good news to wake up to this morning. But he won't win. Either his car will die again, or Red Bull will give Max the better strategy option. If there is a battle with Dan behind, he will probably be told to "hold station Daniel." Max will win, unless his car dies.

With a long run to turn 1 and faster cars kbehind, I'd say Max finishing lap 1 would have to be long odds...

I'm hoping so, but he pulled off a good start last year and won the bloody race!

Well, pretty disappointing for Dan.

Huge congrats to Lewis though, very deserving WDC.

They made him pay for upstaging Max in Qually, that is for sure.

TBH I really don't believe RedBull is sabotaging Dan's car. Max was winning the race anyway,what would be the point of robbing themselves of a 1-2? It also cost them on prizemoney too.

Not sabotaging of course but I think Dan is either getting **** worn out parts or experimental stuff which is causing most of the failures.

I thought after Texas, Horner did say that they're going through backlogged parts for Dan to avoid grid penalties?

If that's correct it may be worth copping them at Brazil and have a proper crack at the final race in Abu Dhabi - to at least knock off Max.
I don't see the Bulls being a chance in either of the remaining races.

Agree.

The more points you score, the bigger the entry fee for next season is.
