    jawsthegreat Roll Tide, go Hoos.

    I think Max had to lift in Sector 2 when Charles spun right in front of him on the last lap

    One lap at low speed but nothing competitive. Probably not worth wasting any new sets of tires

    Just finally got to watch quali...

    For the 100th time. Love a wet quali and/or race whenever we get them. Just exciting when literally anything can happen.

    Happy for Carlos. Funny radio call when his engineer told him P1. A mix of excitement and disbelief.

    Landooooo P6!!!! Let's go!

    Wasn't the one thing Stroll was thought to be above average at was on a wet track? P20. That's fine with me.

    I feel like this narrative of Stroll being good in the wet comes solely from his 2020 pole in Turkey when he was like the only driver to put on inters and everyone else was on wets, and it turned out to be the right call. And Crofty and team have just repeatedly said he's good in the wet weather ever since.

    I also think there's at least a little bit of pressure to find something, anything positive to say about each of the drivers. A handful of guys get their asses kicked before they even arrive to the track, so a little puffery is probably good for thr soul

    RB seems to be quicker in race pace again. Will be interesting how the race plays out tomorrow. Got a feeling Carlos fucks it up at the start.

    Brundle had zero idea who that lady he just interviewed was, right? His pre race grid walk is great for the inevitable awkward moments.
