Exactly what happened last year. Kimi was faster everywhere except sector 3. So he never could stay close enough to Max through the chicane to pass on the straight. And the McLaren must handle pretty well, even Alonso can't hustle a car that doesn't work.

Hey J Clark where'd you get the timings from that you posted as the grid for the Spanish GP?  :DntKnw:

An extra second seems to have been added to every time, Hammy's pole was 1min 19.149 but you show 1min 20.149 -  and so on etc???? :confused:

I know (BST) British Summer time adds an hour but I've never heard of (GPT) Grand Prix time adding a second.  :P ;) :D

Interesting observation John S. is the source:

You are correct however, exactly 1 second.

Some great racing moments today. Good to see drivers wheel to wheel and not being crybabies about it afterwards. Long may it continue.

Agreed, fabulous racing - the sport has remembered it's in the entertainment business

This was the best race of the season by a long way.  Tense and closely fought throughout with on track battles for the lead!  There were also some retirements at the front for once, meaning that others had a chance to shine.  It was a really impressive performance from Force India and from Wehrlein in the Sauber.

My only disappoints were that McLaren didn't have the race pace to allow Alonso to challenge for points and that the race was not live.  I really hope that we can get free to air coverage for Formula 1 back for all races in the coming years.
