I think the W12 will get overheating issues during the race ..

You know like steam coming from a espresso machine !
Maybe they filled with sand and didn't hiss themselves out

Just found out why MAX was slower today .

From his latest interview :

Its been a good day again," Verstappen noted afterwards. "With the heat and the wind it is not easy to find a perfect balance around the whole lap. But overall I would say it was a positive day.

"There are still things to improve and look into for tomorrow, tyre wise and a bit of balance tuning," he pointed out. "Plus I think it will be even more windy which is a challenge for everyone in these cars."

If it's more windy tomorrow as Max thinks then lap times won't improve by that much if at all to risk destabilising the cars.

I think part of it is a weight thing too. In testing, they don't have the same limitations on total weight as they do in the race.

Really rooting for Checo this season I hope he fairs well.

So my friend , here we are with MAX on P1 !!!

On the other hand : As usual . It's clear that Mercedes was once more sandbagging again , and Ferrari as well .

Checo Perez was nowhere ?
Checo stranded on P11 and is 2 sec. slower than MAX !
Honestly , he let me down !

Great job from MAX and HONDA !!!

I didn't saw everything . Drove back home from work .
But I could watch the Q3 . Just on time !

For the moment the new Mercedes invention isn't strong enough ....
But impressive from Mercedes anyway , as they were in serious troubles !
Of course Mercedes was sandbagging . But Ferrari as well !

MAX and Red Bull knew that Mercedes was playing games as usual !
MAX said : "IF" The '21 HONDA PU can close the gap for half . I will close the other half , just by driving ...

Sadly ,once again the Red Bull race strategy is nowhere !
Dammit Checo !

Can't wait for the race !!!

Shame about Checo flopping there though there wasn't a lot of time left and he caught some traffic?
I think he'll be good in the race though.

P11 is too far in the background . Checo will get in trouble in the traffic . Overtaking on this track is very hard !

So excited F1 is back! I'm a Mclaren fan, but I love seeing Max driving well. He's definitely the individual driver I always watch out for.

Did anyone see Alonso drive? Not bad after his time away, having his jaw fractured eh? Just turning it on now...

From what I saw today . Albon was better than Checo in his first race for Red Bull .
Time will tell ...But Checo let me down today ! 2 sec. is a sea of time !
Regarding Checo's pace from today , he can be lapped tomorrow during the race !

Let's keep in mind : Bahrain is a 100% Mercedes track !

It wasn't easy today , the wind changed non-stop .
It was really hard to find the perfect QF set-up ...

That's what Max was saying yesterday, the wind would be worse and the damaged floor he had contributed to him just licking the 28's when there could may have been more to come.

I noticed that too. Checo was way behind. But, I'll give him benefit of doubt as this Red Bull car could be much different than his previous Racing Point. I still feel Albon kind of got screwed.

Being Max's teammate has to suck lol I'd love to see Max challenge Ham and win his first world title this year

I think this season will be much more competitive than years past. The top 10 in qualifying are all within almost 1 sec of each other. If all these cars hold up, and depending on each team's strategies, this season could be exciting!
