Another FL from Bottas. 23sec lead with 16 to go.

Hamilton was supposed to do this, and people were supposed to moan about Bottas being a plodder.

edit; Not just a FL, into the 26s as well!
Mercedes retained him for 2019 so clearly not a plodder, at least to the people that matter in making those decisions.

Sure, he's a number two and a wingman to Hamilton but he has serious pace.

Did something else happen to KUB besides losing the front wing on the first lap? Or is that the only reason why he's a minute behind his team mate?

He qualified over a second down on his teammate, too.

Kubica is a nice fairytale story but the reality is he's like 36 years old, out of the game for years, and well past the peak.

Bit like Dan I would imagine there was some other damage, so he's choosing to use this as a glorified test session.
