Yes. This. Yeah just finished Qualifying. So much for the so-called 'experts, like we said.
So, yeah, same as it ever was, at least in Q. After being told all thru winter testing and ever since by the 'experts' that McLaren were only quicker than Williams ... they're fifth. The same experts also had Merc behind Ferrari. Just goes to show how hard winter testing is to read ... even when you're trackside. If you don't know what you're looking at, then you don't know what you don;t know.
We'll see tonight though, how different race pace will be compared to Q.
They're saying others 'under performed' thus elevating McLaren who they expect to fall back during the race. Yes, this may happen, but would it really have hurt to just congratulate the team on the result and admit that they were jaded about McLaren due to the teams under performance last year? Even when they're shown to be wrong, they're still smug and entirely unlikable.
