Mercs seemed to have pace until the last lap shootout no? I can see MV getting Sainz on the start and that'll be it..

Did sound like they were roundly boo'ing him at the on-track interview though?

Apparently they tried a cool down lap then a final push lap which may explain the drop in performance at the end.

They had the pace today to be around the top although, think Verstappen was the quickest today.

Yes, Ham especially. Looks like both him and George had disappointing last laps.

The coverage was dire throughout. Didn't even get a replay of Latifi going off despite the fact he held up several drivers with the yellows.

I'm sure there were 2-3 yellows. And not a sniff of the action. Only verstappens spin

Ham said the track got wetter after their cool down lap unfortunately.

Who would take it, though? McLaren don't have anyone obvious lined up. A punt on Drugovich perhaps?

Do they even have "juniors" these days? The only two who seem to have any kind of agreement with them are Pato O'Ward and Colton Herta but I' not sure Herta has ever even tested a car yet.

Shame verstappen isn't a bit further back. Grid isn't that mixed up.

Excluding reliability a slam dunk for verstappen?

Yeah I'd think so, he's looked quickest all weekend really, its a shame tomorrow's forecast is dry - bit of rain might have spiced things up too

They have one, in F4. Herta doesn't have the super license points and seems unlikely to get them. Pata O'Ward seems more likely, hadn't realised he was so close to getting the points he needs.

I wasn't sure about the super license myself! I'd have liked McLaren to go for Gasly tbh
