I would not want to be Cyril right now.
One driver out in Q1, the other in Q2 (at the top, albeit). And both customer cars in Q3 just behind the big 3.
Not to mention where the ex-customer put their car (well, at least one of them, Gasly's ghastly!)

Sometimes, situations aren't fair. Max Verstappen's pole time of 74.572 seconds was 0.878 seconds faster than Pierre Gasly's best lap. How much of that difference should we attribute to Gasly being bad and how much of it is due to Verstappen being the best driver in the field right now? Would Daniil Kvyat or Alexander Albon be able to match Max's performance if they were driving the second Red Bull? Kvyat already lost that seat once because he wasn't performing as well as Verstappen, and Max is driving better now than he did then.

He's made fun of by the drivers ahead, targeted by the drivers behind (and fans like me, though my opinions are of no value or impact :) ). Ouch, not a good time to be him. That said, I feel for him, given the immense pressure he finds himself under.

For all of Gasly's poor performance, I have to say that RBR has never seemed the kind of place that has bothered to mentor or mentally support any driver who is not the favoured one. Ricciardo was the only one in such a position who succeeded (and even then, that was only against a Vettel who was negotiating his exit, things went sour once Max arrived), every one else from Webber onwards has been short-changed by the team.

Kvyat's reasonable form this year after a stint away from them is probably the most striking proof of Red Bull's perform-or-perish conveyer belt approach to drivers. So, it's not unsurprising they're not finding new fodder for their drivers mill.

Alexander Albon is being promoted to the Team to drive alongside Max, while Pierre will return to the Red Bull sister team, Scuderia Toro Rosso.


Barely a week after saying that they intended to see out the season without any driver changes, RBR have elected to promote Alex Albon into the big leagues, making Toro Rosso the squad of demoted drivers.

Season average of each team's fastest lap as a percentage of the fastest lap for that weekend:
100.091 Mercedes
100.489 Ferrari
100.744 Red Bull / Honda
101.676 McLaren / Renault
101.798 Haas / Ferrari
101.888 Renault
102.021 Alfa Romeo / Ferrari
102.091 Toro Rosso / Honda
102.408 Racing Point / Mercedes
104.373 Williams / Mercedes

The gap from 4th to 9th is smaller than the gap from 1st to 3rd. The midfield race is tight.

The gap from 9th to 10th is larger than the gap from 2nd to 9th. As pathetic as that is, it's actually closer than Williams were to the rest of the field earlier this season.

Lewis starts last in every race? Bloody genius!!

I can already hear the entitled whinging.
Imagine a world with no hypothetical questions.
