Yes, almost in the back, but still a good time for Schumacher.

For Latifi, for Mazepin (well, of course) and only 2 tenths behind Kimi.

    Don't be surprised if everyone just wants to start on the softs on Sunday.

    Dropoff is not as big as in Portugal and with that long run to turn 1 you really benefit from the extra traction at the start.
