If you use reddit there's a lot of people posting links of high quality and dependant streams with no ads and pop-ups in case F1TV messes up again. This is how I watch the beginning of last week's race before F1TV started working.

Red Bulls were quite strong and Max was fight for the rear end.. i guess after increasing the ride height for rain too much positive rake angle makes the car a bit more snappy in rain i dont know.. even though its a traditional method of Red Bull.. i guess Max pushed too much before he spun as well and curbs didnt help him to find the grip..

and Ferrari.. yeah again leaving the choice of tire change to driver like driver has tons of time to think while fighting in the rain.. not acting proactively again and seeing all this live again was sad for Leclerc.. cant understand why Ferrari cant think, putting the new set of wets earlier to make him jump to Q3.. what he was gonna do with full set of wets that he doesnt even need tomorrow.. they put the last set too late and send out Leclerc into traffic well done really good job Ferrari.. and seems life is normal still since Vettel spun again today.. nice to be alive..

McLarens are looking really strong as a team and drivers.. except the boss though.. i guess we ll see lots of high quality action from them this year.. and actually next year they ll have Merc' engines strapped on which probably boost their track times..

Perez actually surprised me by not making to Q2.. i guess he wasnt happy with the setup or couldnt find a proper gap to put a better lap time.. normally he is not bad in wet weather and all this make Stroll look good..

Ocon probably feels relieved as he performed nicely in wet weather today..

and yes.. its the car guy guys.. its always the car for Hamilton..
Lewis is smashing almost all records, putting 1.4 seconds on his teammate in wet on such a short lap track.. and its all about the car.. im not trying to convince you here to like him at all.. but this started to a bit silly.. been years now he s winning each season in F1 despite the car and just take a look at the pole lap he put in.. seriously just watch without a bias not to like.. and see how smooth it was under heavy rain and pressure.. 1.4 seconds to his fast teammate is such an easier said than done situation.. great to see how motivated he is still!!!

MAX spun by "SEB" ! He had to leave the perfect line in that last turn , because SEB showed suddenly up in front of him...
"SEB" was going pitting , and slowed down in the turn in front of MAX !

Check this out :

"Spun by Seb"?????? Come on man. Seb didn't spin him. half of Seb's car was outside of the track to give VER room and VER dipped his wheel on the outisdie and spun. He lost control that's all. Same thing happened to Ocon? I think?

Check this out :

mate his lap was still slower than Lewis' until 2nd sector like 0.4 seconds and Mercs are better in last sector.. and Max was hustling with the wheel.. if you re telling he got distracted by Vettel i can agree but actually he made the last right turn as the way he wanted.. you should thank Vettel for spinning before that turn.. thats why he was going to the pits and was around at that moment..

But that wasn't my point ...

You guys can clearly see that MAX had to leave the perfect line on the inside and pulled it to the outside while he had to brake on the outside , he had to drive over the curbs and spun !
The cause why MAX spun was "SEB" slowing down in front of him in the last turn .
The rest you saw in the video above ..

Wake up mates !

Rain, the great equalizer. Best qualie in a long time and wish they had more on board for Max, he was on the razors edge every time the camera was on him. But Lewis was the better man today and you can’t take anything away from him - DAS or not, RAIN.

Can't really say he was the better man. Not equal machinery.

One might argue that Max had better machinery today, downforce > DAS or power in the rain. I wouldn't make that argument as my take on this - rain is the great equalizer and any difference in machinery is marginalized

I don't think we really know which car was easier to drive in the rain and/or faster potentially (not characteristics which necessarily go hand-in-hand). Also, rain may be called the great equalizer, and it does generally bring teams much closer, but it does not always make the differences between machinery inconsequential.

Guessing you've never been on track in the rain to see the differences setup can make.

I dont think DAS played a role in qualifying today.

Was really happy to see Russell in Q2. It would be awesome to see what he can do in a Mercedes car.

Iím from Michigan, if you donít drive in the rain, you miss out on a lot of TrackTime. But we didnít have adjustable Suspension, brake bias etc. if thatís your point.

Either way, enjoyed watching Max and Lewis shine as all the greats seem to do in the wet.
