Grip levels are down at the moment however, this is typical for the first practice session of the weekend.
There was a strange red flag caused by a collision between Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon late in the session. There was no coverage of the incident however it appears that the left rear tyre of Perez's Red Bull clipped the right front of Ocon's Alpine going into the turn 5 chicane.

Yuki Tsunoda brought out the red flags in Q1 after parking his AlphaTauri in the barriers. The team will be busy fixing this one but, most importantly, the driver came out unscathed.
Track limits penalties impacted many with Lando Norris losing a time that may have had him in P2 or P3 at the end of the session.

Had Norris's time been allowed, we would have had 4 drivers with less than a tenth between them. That's so exciting!

Should be an exciting race, not it terms of overtaking as that will be very difficult but in terms of strategy.

Perez in his 2nd race for Red Bull outqualifies Verstappen, that is impressive, I just hope the two don't take each other out!

Gasly once again impressive, Ocon and the two Williams as well. Bottas, Sainz, Vettel and Alonso dissapointing

But it's only qualifying, lets see the finishing order!
