Never seen that channel before no, but have just checked it out and subscribed. Thanks for the link

Some interesting developments from today's running in Monaco. Obviously we can't read too much into practice times, but Vettel seems comfortably ahead thus far, with the Mercedes struggling in the warmer conditions. Stroll crashing again too... at this rate I'd be exceptionally surprised if both he and Palmer are on the grid next year (it wouldn't even surprise me if either of them get replaced midway through the season!).

It's kind of strange Merc making a FP2 so horrible, Toto said they messed with the setup so we going to see the real Merc in the FP3 i think under the Qualifying Simulation, Since im brazillian and huge Senna fan i hope Mclaren make some points to keep the things interesting in the lower bracket.

On paper you'd have this race down as Mclaren's best chance for points this season with it being the least power-dependent circuit. That being said though, I still can't see them scoring any given Alonso won't be there. Qualifying is so crucial this race given how hard overtaking is and I can't envisage Button or Vandoorne pulling out an absolute stellar lap in quali in the way that Alonso would likely do (therefore getting them high up the grid and being able to stay there due to it being Monaco!). We'll see though, there's always potential for a number of retirements so that could play into their hands.

Hamilton out in Q2 & Kimi is on pole. Maybe I should play the lotto

Heck of a quali session! I'm really hoping Kimi does something this weekend. Think it would be a great story. Not counting Lewis out of the race either. Even down in 13th and after a poor showing, I think they can work their way back to the front.

Proud of Grosjean and Haas too. Would be cool to see them actually make something of a weekend with a good qualifying position.

Great day for Ferrari! Wish Kimi would've won but strategically, Vettel makes the most sense (whether Ferrari planned the switch or not).

The race was over once the pitstop sequence completed, however. The most entertaining part was watching Jenson Button fumble his way around in the McLaren. I'm also beginning to think Vandoorne is a bit overhyped...he's made some silly mistakes lately.

There's been so much talk about whether Ferrari planned for Vettel to jump Kimi in the pitstops; I don't think they did personally. The fact is, Vettel had much better pace and made those laps in clean air count (as did Danny Ric!).

Still wouldn't like to say on Vandoorne yet... it doesn't help that his car is shite and that his benchmark each race is Alonso, a.k.a. one of the greatest F1 drivers ever so it's no wonder that he's off his pace. Some mistakes have crept in though like you say! In terms of the outstanding rookie of the season, it would definitely have to be Ocon - he has been very impressive so far.

Wow, a fantastic quali lap from Hamilton there. Quite a gap to Vettel too - didn't see that coming!
