    They should give Bottas Lewis' car though, so he could finally have a problem free weekend :D

    Ferrari wants the same for Sainz. And McLaren said, that RIC should drive in Abu Dhabi, too.

    It would also help if Bottas stops damaging his car ;P

    Anyway, Russell P1, superb effort.

    Bottas (and Vettel) spent half of P2 in the dust and gravel. He had a faster (only by 2 or 3 tenths) quali lap than Russell but it was disallowed. Kind of sloppy for a guy who’s usually quicker than Hamilton in practice. His race pace was better initially but then more locking up and gravelling.

    Mildly interesting is that Russell is wearing a size smaller shoe to fit in Lewis’ toebox and a three year old seat.

    Bottas was asked in the pre-race interviews how bad would it look if Russell outperformed him. I wouldn’t have dignified a question that lazy and insulting with an answer. Speaking of, neither of Liberty’s F1 show guys (Buxton and Barretto) have Bottas on the podium and both had Russel winning. :???: Maybe everyone’s running on fumes from the back to back and the Hamilton news cutting into days off.

    I wish someone asked Russell how much it helps (if at all) to be using (ostensibly) the same engine. Maybe there are too many variables (mapping, gearing, and the effects of aero, chassis, tire temp window on the first two) to answer. IIRC (I may have misheard), a recent Missed Apex podcast with someone from Racecar Engineering said that all the ICEs are within 25hp but Merc’s PU provides way more electrical energy per lap, lap after lap.

    I wonder if he’s using DAS?

    Edit: Just saw a YT clip (Slipstream Media “F1 sakhir GP: George Russell fast hot lap for Mercedes” @1:30) of him asking his engineer how was his DAS usage in the final corner, so he’s using all the things.

    Sad thing is if Russell does win it'll just end up as more ammo for the anti-Hamilton brigade and their "well obviously anyone could win in that car, even my grandma, Hamilton is over-rated blah blah" sillies.

    For what it's worth that wouldn't be a complete wrong statement if Russel can indeed win purely on pace.

    Usually even the good drivers need some time to get used to a different car. Look at Ricciardo when he joined Renault for example.

    If he wins he's either exceptionally quick or the car is so fast that it is hard to lose in it. Unless you're Bottas of course.
