A Red Flag as expected ! And MAX is still in the box with no time set (yet)
FIA haven't confirmed yet that MAX is taking a new gearbox for Sunday so until then if he takes FL in quali he will be on pole until it's announced.

I hear MAX wasn't happy with the gearbox down-shifts in Hungary .

Not sure if the gearbox is replaced (yet) but must be , because the FIA speaks of MAX's P5 grid penalty .

Track looks (still)! very tricky !

MAX ough ! At the edge of Q3 ...

Couldn't be otherwise because they run the track constantly dryer .
MAX isn't happy : Horner : MAX in the last 2 laps they ran 2 sec. faster because the track dried up.
