Hamilton deserved his pole.... but the qualifying needs a bit of tweaking!

Re: F1 2017

The qualifying doesn't need tweaking, it needs the teams to work out how to make it work. Sending a car out when it won't complete two laps in time is a mistake that's the fault of the team, not the system. Also, the top four all went out early, there was nothing stopping Ferrari having a second go instead they stayed sat in the garage sulking because Mercedes blew them off the track.

If it was to be tweaked I'd make it two sessions instead of three as it would give teams longer to turn the car around and get a few extra laps in before the elimination clock starts ticking.

And yes, it looks like it's Hamilton's to lose, the only reason to watch now is to see when it actually dawns on Rosberg that Hamilton's streets ahead of him and he's only where he is because of the car and not his (limited) talent.

Re: F1 2017

AM good point about Vettel not going out again think he was second at the the time.

Maybe allow continuous running now and eliminate the slowest car every 3 minutes

I used to like the old qualifying hour when a driver could sit in the pits for 58 mins then go out and do one lap and stick it on the front row.

Motor Racing to me is as terminally boring as Rugby is to Moxey.

One small point though: why is this about 2017 ?

Re: F1 2017

Get what wrong? I just replied to points that were made.
I thought the thread title might be a year out and you did not. The thread starter has confirmed that but while the continuing posts still refer to 2017 the Mods have changed the OP title.

Lots of people getting it wrong seemingly. :)
