Toto’s face says it all lmao

Why this labelled 18+ lol

Because Toto is older than 18.

Not sure what happened to Russell during quali, he's been so far off Lewis


MathematicianOk4905

Lewis isn’t running bad setups now and he true pace is showing since Canada. But today Russell is off for sure


Carbon26

Toto said Russell did have Power problems, as if "10% are missing".


MathematicianOk4905

Ok didn’t catch that


HankHippopopolous

Yeah this is it. Russell is doing well but it’s clear he’s a tenth or so slower than Lewis on average. That’s still a very good level and he’s always there to profit from Lewis’ misfortunes which is how he’s ahead in the points but it’s clear that Lewis has his measure now in terms of raw performance.


kiwiandapple

Russell had issues with his car.


pukem0n

Headphones would have flown if it were Lewis


Hot-Protection4548

Lewis will never be a second off his teammate. Especially in the wet conditions


miamibuckeye

Lewis is a water bender


pranay909

This, these conditions are perfect for lewis.


toyg

Lewis is a proper *mago della pioggia*, a rain wizard.


iSleepUpsideDown

Ye him and Max have hacks, they always have more grip than everyone else, reported


kevints98

He probably has been once or twice, no? Hes flying today though


SkwiddyCs

I went and looked it up because I couldn't remember a time he was more than a second behind a team mate. According to gpracingstats.com the only time lewis has been more than 1s behind a team mate in Qualifying are: Nürburgring 2007 Monza 2008 Australia 2009 (No Time Recorded) Monaco 2011 (NTR) Japan 2012 Germany 2012 (NTR) Hungary 2012 (NTR) Germany 2014 (NTR) China 2016 (NTR) Belgium 2016 (Whopping 4s faster by Rosberg) Baku 2016 (19 seconds, Lewis hit a wall in Q3 - only his out lap was completed) Monaco 2017 Brazil 2017 (NTR) Germany 2018 (NTR) Saudi Arabia 2022 Not bad for 304 race starts.


Kingslayer1526

What the hell is NTR


SkwiddyCs

(No Time Recorded)


BombSquad09

Google it


SkwiddyCs

You might need to try “Lewis Hamilton Nico Rosberg NTR” for best results


BombSquad09

Max Verstappen Daniil Kvyat NTR is where its at


Lord_Vaguery

That’s karma for talking shit about budget caps.


iSleepUpsideDown

What did he actually say lol? If Zak Brown had said it I think most people would agree


tor93

Aston why! Lance was in the top 10 on inters!!!!!!!


x0RRY

Seb already had the time locked in I think, if he wouldn't have boxed. He was faster than russell and on a personal best.


palmenausschaschlik

Yeah should have finished the lap. But now they got boy Stroll in front, so I guess the boss is happy.


Antidote-Killer

Bro, Stroll was faster all weekend right now, he has yet to finish a session lower than Vettel.


julesvr5

Being faster in Q > being faster in FP


Antidote-Killer

Yeah? Wanna talk about that? Stroll had a faster s1 in Q2 than Vettel, when he also aborted his lap.


Starboy3

why are yall arguing about who was faster when aston screwed them both over by making them pit for softs? i think both would have made Q3 no problem


InfinityGCX

I'm so fucking tired of all of this people being so aggressive about the Stroll vs. Vettel comparison. Lance has been great during the weekend, but he has the new floor as well. Both of them got screwed by the call for softs and should've been in Q3.


Martijngamer

Aston design team: green Red Bull Aston strategy team: green Ferrari


Antidote-Killer

Yeah I do agree imo, shouldve pit for more inters rather than for softs


palmenausschaschlik

And sebs aborted lap was faster, whats your point? Seb was also faster in Q3.


A_WHALES_VAG

They weren't in Q3.


Javorius

Really weird decision. Usually you gamble when you don't have a chance to reach Q3, not when it looks somewhat likely.


x0RRY

Am i wrong, or was Vettel on a personal best before boxing? He would have been in Q3 if he would have just finished it? If so, that might be the dumbest thing I've ever seen AM do and they did a lot of dumb stuff...


JaysonTatumfanboy

Two Green sectors yeah


trooperr310

Probably yes


sherestoredmyfaith

Yeah he would’ve been around P8 if he finished that lap


SHORT-CIRCUT

Just looked at his on-boards and yeah, he was up in S1/2, little lock up in S3 then the team tell him (well I guess ask) to abort the lap and come in for softs


Jayer244

Missed a turn in sector 3


chimaerafeng

Stupid move by Aston Martin, they were quick enough on the inters to be at the cusp of Q3, the gamble was not needed. They did not have to be the guinea pig, now they are even further from some of those that they ought to be ahead of.


DisconnectedWalrus

Wonder if the LEC radio message was a bluff


tanzeel29

Atleast they should have split their strategy to get one driver in q3


NoPurpose0

Aston man. They both looked on for Q3 on inters


pppppppp8

AM strategy at its finest


Vadumee

Russell 1+ second slower than Hamilton, damn


dalledayul

He hasn't enjoyed this circuit at all this weekend. Not sure why but he's been twitchy and struggling for grip in every session.


[deleted]

Mr Saturday


Karrigan7

Mr Saturdayn't


Zloggt

And he also missed Q3 by just **.006** seconds too! The smallest things can make the biggest differences…


Rp_Mi26

What actually happened to Russell? Didn't watch the whole thing. Did he just struggle with tire warm up?


ArcherBoy27

Reported the same issue that he had in P1 where the engine pushes him forward in some corners.


theultimatestart

I really hoped that the slicks would work for aston. Too bad


Cock_Inspector_2021

Ferrari really tricked Aston into putting on slicks on a damp track 💀.


IRapePandas

Sad for russell but fuck me im happy that norris got q3


pukem0n

No idea how he did that with the abysmal Q1 time


sIckb0y-

He aborted his last Q1 lap due to being safe into Q2. So Q1 luckily wasn’t really representative.


JaysonTatumfanboy

Seb was on a good lap and then they go on slicks


x0RRY

It would have been fast enough for Q3 I think xD


Aratho

Anyone seen Mr. Saturday today? Shame for Seb for his last Singapore GP, the slicks gamble for Aston didn't pay off at all.


VosPaco

I respect the gamble, if you’re a lower team may aswell go for it . What happened to Russell? Very surprising.


A_WHALES_VAG

But I dont think they were one of the slower teams? I think they were 7-10 pretty safely in inters and a good lap. Lance probably sets a better time in Q1 if not blocked by Fernando.. I get gambling in Q3 but in my eyes they were a pretty safe bet for Q2 on inters.


dalledayul

Russell has struggled all weekend. He's clearly just struggled badly with finding a set-up he likes for this track


f1_spelt_as_bot

Russe**ll**


VosPaco

Good bot


OTBT-

Seems like a general lack of pace


Hot-Protection4548

He was on track for a good lap until he went off into the runoff area :(


NiK3_Aub4mey4ng

yeh that last corner was hell in them, props to Haas and AT for staying on the inters, big call made right for them


MoistRespect8498

Eh Vettel doesnt care anymore, hes more focused on his activism, thats why hes now slower then a pay driver for like the 4th qualifying session straight Edit: which i support, i just wish that he could still spend some of his focus on f1 aswell, Lewis has managed to do both


am7777

Yeah seb checked out after the Austria shit, he’s just riding it out now. If he really had the desire he could out qualify stroll


MoistRespect8498

He could dominate him, thats exactly what he did before Hungary. I would have preferred if he retired immideatly instead of checking out though :/


JaysonTatumfanboy

He lost his speed yeah but his final lap on inters would have been q3 most likely


MoistRespect8498

Yeah I saw that, but I'm guessing it would have still been about the same as Strolls lap. He should be almost a second faster then him in these conditions, that's how much faster he was in Canada and Britain quali. That tells me that the car has a lot more pace to extract and has improved since the beginning of the season but he's not using that pace which is a little frustrating


Mr_XemiReR

Timing is so important here


Ket_Cz

Bloody hell about 10 miles behind Lewis


crubeens

Thought it was gonna be a rough day as a McLaren fan, thank god Lando got into Q3


Spookytooth66

Nice one Kevin getting into Q3, outpacing his teammate this weekend.


Assenzio47

I mean, Mick never drove on this track.


gate666

He is better than Schumacher.


SaturnRocketOfLove

Not recently, and probably not by lap 2 tomorrow


Snotspat

He'll probably attempt to overtake Verstappen in turn 1. ;)


usandholt

Not if he is rammed by others. Correct.


BVBene

He's very good in Singapore and experience matters there. That doesn't mean he's generally better than Mick, though.


usandholt

Ok, what matters then? Points, number of point finishes, qualification?


[deleted]

[удалено]


Firefox72

GJ Aston you screwed over your drivers. If not both then at least Stroll who is good in these conditions was probably making Q3 here. Looks like they needed 1 more lap for the slicks to get into the window.


Ruma-park

Vettel would've easily made it through to Q3 on inters. His last run (which he had to abort) was well into the top 10.


ineedans-wers

That is what confused me. They should have let him finish that lap. He really could have made it with that lap.


Antidote-Killer

Wouldve not been easily through, he was 2 tenths off Magnussen in S1 and Equal in S2, for S3 it would have been better, but we don't know if it wouldve been two tenths faster than his S3.


jbeck24

It kinda looked like stroll would make it anyway: he had personal bests sectors 1 and 2, just needed sector 3 to come together


Platypus-Music

Shouldn’t have trusted Alfa with their FP2


l3w1s1234

Maybe not worth the risk for Aston. Clearly had the pace for Q3 just unfortunate it didnt work out. Last sector just a bit damp.


TheKingOfCaledonia

Anthony Davidson on Skypad saying Russell was simply just too slow. No mistakes or moments in his lap.


Taylo207

Let’s go Kmag wooo


racingfan96

Engineer stability is important.


Dart_Ferik

Proceeds to smash into max car on the opening laps during the race


usandholt

Funny, although Kmag hasnt smashed into anyone this season. Why would he tomorrw?


Dart_Ferik

He did it twice only in Hamilton


usandholt

Did he? Lets examine that: Here is an onboard of Spain, seen from Schumacher: https://m.imgur.com/WhuzrMs Look a lot like Hamilton understeers into Kmag and Kmag holds his line. You cannot argue that Kmag smashes into Hamilton. Here is 3 other lap one incidents from both onboards. https://m.imgur.com/a/Ez3Ckat The rightmost is Canada: Kmag gets squeezed while Hamilton has plenty of room to the right. Sure, they touch, but it is hardly noticeable unless I told you this is the incident. Again explain how Kmag smashes into Hamilton. If you want “smashing” you can look at Micks two crashes or when he simply rammed Vettel or when he rear ended Bottas in Monza.


DanaKaZ

Don't bother. He's just upset that Mick isn't turning out to be the next great driver, and taking his frustrations out on Kevin.


usandholt

I know, but hundreds of others read it and regurgitate that shit. When you actually look at it, it’s obvious that Kmag has been extremely unlucky.


DerGsicht

Noooo Mick that final sector :(


Shaivite

Seb nooooooo🥹


KaamDeveloper

Ex Williams drivers Russell and Stroll going to start together tomorrow


CilanEAmber

Last two Williams Podium sitters.


Chell_the_assassin

Lewis 1.3 seconds faster than George...


SHORT-CIRCUT

George had car issues


iSleepUpsideDown

Lewis masterclass or George fail? Or both


English_Misfit

Por que no los dos


CaribFM

Both. This is why Lewis is who he is.


MoistRespect8498

Both, Lewis is destroying Russell since Canada now lol


kevints98

He has, but the wdc doesn’t reflect it so in 5 years we will see comments like “Russell destroyed Hamilton in his first year at Merc”


MoistRespect8498

Eh I don't think so, Lewis has a very strong fanbase that will always correct someone who says that, I wouldn't count out Hamilton beating Russell in wdc either, this weekend could be a huge swing


TheWebbFather

Yep. Russell has outqualified Hamilton twice since Baku, 1 of them was when Lewis crashed and the other was when Lewis' DRS failed


MoistRespect8498

Fuck I didn't know it was that bad haha, though he was faster in Canada until he went for slicks for a 1% gamble at pole


TheWebbFather

True. Although Hamilton had the low DF setup, focusing on the race


Karax9699

Sounds like a bad car setup.


ArcherBoy27

Same engine issue as P1 he reported.


Syntax_OW

More George fail, whatever he does there he must make q3.


Alone_Scientist

It's OK. George was just doing an experimental qualifying strategy.

ExistingReach9658

Toto's removing of his glasses, just describes everything


A_WHALES_VAG

AM ridiculous.. sad for Seb. Clearly one of the faster midfield teams and you're setting fine times on inters and you gamble on slicks. You wanna make that gamble in Q3 fine.. but why Q2. so stupid.


supernova6831

No worries, safety car will put George ahead of Lewis tomorrow anyways


andrew_a7

TOTO's face ahahaha


sidhantsv

That Hamilton fellow is half decent eh


Schwerter_105

Quick lad in half-wet conditions, maybe he’ll even go on to win a championship some day, don’t you think? /j


Itstoobiggetitout

You mean to tell me the greatest of all time performed as such? I for one, am shocked.


JPA-3

stroll has been better than vettel for a while already


MoistRespect8498

Ever since Hungary, Its a mystery for me why he didnt retire with immidiate effect if hes not prepared to give the sport any effort. Edit: Its hilariously sad if you look at the data. Australia-France qualifying gap: -0,573% to Vettel. Hungary-Singapore qualifying gap: +0,085% to Stroll. That car has another 5 or 4 tenths that Vettel could extract if he gave some effort just sitting there. The car isn't so bad anymore.


AnyHolesAGoal

Russell outqualified again.


Tobse998

get ready for Hamilton being unlucky in the race again and Russell increasing the points gap


TheWebbFather

Russell to start on hards and continue till there's a convenient safety car?


Sarixk

"Washed" Hamilton on it again in qualifying. Been the case since Canada


ISEALDS

What happened to Russell?


Tobse998

he was just slow


Ecomystic

who the hell knows, he's been way off lewis entire quali session


[deleted]

[удалено]


MacroOW

The "struggle" he referred to is a brake/vibration issue that he also had in FP1. Watching his onboard he was complaining the car wasn't feeling right from the beginning of Q1.


ArcherBoy27

Engine issue the same as P1.


Gometric1

Although he’s out I gotta give a shout-out to Stroll who’s been outperforming Seb all weekend


enstone_

A$ton Martin needs to hire some strategists. Maybe offer triple the salary to some at RB will Do it


ThePhenex

As mutch as i love mick, he needs to improve in quali. His race results with his pace could be so mutch better if he wouldnt start around 15th every race.


ctherranrt

Oof.


PreparationFar2745

Another disasterclass from Aston


laurentiubuica

I don't understand what happened to Mick on the last lap. He was 4 tenths up on P10 in the first sector than by the end of the lap he was 3 tenths down on P10.


mortalcrawad66

For his first qualifying, mick didn't do so bad It's just Kevin is really fast around this track


Hot-Protection4548

The difference between Hamilton and Russell in this qualifying in the same car 1.3 secs off


URZ_

Russell no pace whatsoever this quali, bit of a disaster


kRIEGER_EU

Russel in P11 : “nothing we could have done there” Hamilton in P2 : doubt


f1_spelt_as_bot

Russe**ll**


CilanEAmber

Even with the Slick gamble, one of Astons best qualifying results this season. 12th and 14th.


CCDBD2

I thought Russell was the second coming of Christ?


pureblood

He’s a real boy


kolsonk

Shocker from George


WokeGoebbels

Russell lmfao


racingfan96

This could be the end of Schumacher's F1 career.


[deleted]

[удалено]


xddddlol

God forbid someone posts an opinion on the internet


racingfan96

Nope. That is why I said ''could''. Haas wanted him to improve perfromances until COTA or Mexico especially in a demanding track like Singapore. [link](https://www.motorsport-total.com/formel-1/news/steiner-gruebelt-wiederholt-sich-mick-schumachers-geschichte-in-der-f1-22093002) He failed at doing in the first try when K-Mag got the 9th place. He doesn't have many oppurtunities left. Time is ticking away for him.


Jayer244

lmao


DaBenni0301

was worth a shot


[deleted]

[удалено]


DaBenni0301

I mean hindsight is always 20/20 and inters would have been better here. But the track looked dry, Charles asked for slicks and Stroll went green in S1 and S2 at the end. It definitely could have worked, but just didn't


hoxxxxx

they keep replaying seb's radio lol it's just so sad.


MathematicianOld3942

Since his retirement announcement Vettel checked out, I am sorry to say that, at the beginning of the season he had Stroll in his pocket easily


ThePapayaPrince

Bye bye Schumacher!


MH18Foot

Russell washed


hermanlegerman

Russell?
