Albon will know only too well that in Verstappen he faces a freakish talent at the very top of his game. In Q2, there was huge traffic again in the last sector, but both cars could find a decent window. Part of the knack of a quick Barcelona lap is keeping the soft compound rubber alive so as not to drop too much time in that final sector.

Mercedes has been the dominant force in the 2020 F1 season so far, with five victories in six races, but the German manufacturer was outfoxed by Red Bull at last weekend's 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone. An emphatic win for the Black Arrows wouldn’t surprise. Qualifying times are very important and determine the starting position on the strat grid for every driver on race day. Sergio, another who is highly skilled at eking out tyre life, thinks that there may even be scope for a one-stop race, but concedes it’s marginal.

Unfortunately for Daniil, he missed the last qualifying session by 24 milliseconds!

Nico Hulkenberg will remain on standby at Racing Point in case Perez is not cleared for return. When he looked up he was almost into the back of the Haas and exited stage right into the wall.
Pierre was driving a solid lap until he had big wheelspin at the exit of Turn 10, overheated his rear tyres, and affected the performance of the car in the entire third sector. Tomorrow’s winner? More misery in Barcelona for Vettel, despite new chassis. This is frustrating, but it was positive that together with his engineers he could make a very good step forward in comparison to FP3. “I’m pleased with that,” Perez nodded, while conceding that after two races out of the cockpit and his strength sapped by the virus, he was feeling things physically. Magnussen had just finished a timed lap and, told of approaching cars on quick laps, he pulled to the centre of the road to free up the racing line. Mercedes would no doubt have liked the buffer of a Racing Point between themselves and Verstappen, but Otmar Szafnauer’s men couldn’t quite do it.

We need to understand the reason for this mistake and if we could have done anything to avoid it. Not for the first time.

But, F1’s hyper-technology or not, they’re still the only thing in contact with the road. We had only four sets of Softs which meant we had to run with the used tyres at the start of Q2, which wasn’t easy, but we made it so I’m quite happy with that.
