Grosjean's pace is ok, nothing special but passable. His spatial awareness was atrocious though and it damn near killed him. He's gonna hurtle around indy at near 400kmh, good lord.
As for verne, Ricciardo absolutely beat him, no question. I followed them closely and on race pace it was reasonably close but qualy was hands down Daniel. It also started really tight then slowly, but surely, Daniel got on top and stayed there. No way RBR should have pout Verne first but i do think he was a very good driver, better than some guys that had long runs like Grosjean, Magnussen, kvyat etc.
