Wow this guy must be clairvoyant. I think, given the pace shown by the Mercedes so far, most people would expect Lewis to win at least one race this year and probably more if the car is reliable.

@ Pole Position Then maybe she is a clairvoyant :)

Q1 was certainly spectacular. The standings are quite interesting going into Q2. Hopefully it will be a little less changeable and they can stay with one tyre. The guys who got clean laps on intermediates dominate the top of the times over those who were on full wets.

I've been following F1 and other motor racing for over 40 years and I know that the conditions are the same for everyone, However, in changeable conditions it can be a bit of a lottery at times. I prefer it when the conditions, good or bad, are more constant and qualifying is more an indication of the performance of the driver/car combination.

I too have been following GP racing for a very long time and experience tells me that conditions are the same for all being on the grid, as I said the outcome is the result of driver/team work and that includes luck or lack of it and also the IF'S and BUT'S, the driver/team work is not/cannot be measured only in perfect conditions, perfect conditions can only be measured in haven not on a F1 racing track.

I often hear and read that conditions are the same for everybody but it's an insult to truth to think that the same conditions will imply exactly the same implications and consequences depending on the characteristics of each competitors.

For instance in football or rugby, a bad soggy pitch will be a relative advantage for a physical team compared to one relying on their technique and finesse.

Same goes for cars, drivers, tyres, etc. in certain conditions. There are so many inter related parameters coming in play.
